That's great news! will add a few to my next order. I guess they should also fit just fine with other cars..? Like AE, CRC...

The bumpers are specific to the body mount locations of the DB12R. They can be slightly modified to fit other cars but are a direct fit for this car.

This bumper is made specific for the car to not interfere with the suspension

Good to see they finally got there! Priority from Seattle to Tampa from Monday evening should have been a little quicker then that!

Jason is right, this bumper fits his car plus the CEFX. Just push it over the body posts. You don't need any under body clips or any clips to hold it down. It's cut so that a Speed 8 & 12 will rest on the front of it. You will have an extraordinary time blowing up the chassis or driving it through your body. Doing the "alligator" due to post hole damage will just be a memory. But you can still laugh at the guys who still do it.

If you need an Asc/CRC/Rev5: #105.

I placed the body mounts to where they work best for this car.It was the area i found the ideal amount of downforce over the front tires. I wanted the added performance more than having standard placement.

I dont carry the thrust bearings right now but anything is possible.

Hey Jason, I was just talking with my buddy about servos. I use JR's because they seem to be lighter then the rest. The JR's certainly do not fit in the mounts correctly. Not a big deal to me, but others would struggle drilling a new hole. You designed the car to use the Futaba servos. The question that came to mind is: was the car designed with the weight of that servo & do you like ball studs forward or rearward in the saver? Where I am going with this, is weight placement on the nose. We were talking about front tire scrub earlier this week. If there is not enough weigh on the nose, then tire scrub would be more apparent.

Thoughts?

Brian

Why is the servo angled on some cars, and laid flat on others?

Brian,

I used the 9602 and 9650 for developement because they were the most popular servos. If your servo is drasticly lighter you can always compensate with electronics placement.

The 2 styles of mounting serve 2 different purposes. Running the servo angled eliminates all bumpsteer and increases your ackerman slightly for lower bite carpet and asphalt. It increases steering and is ideal for asphalt.
Flat mounting the servo creates alot of bump toe in so you will need to shim the ballstuds up a decent amount to remove as much as you can. Running the servo flat will make the car a little more smoothe to drive due to the bumpsteer and less ackerman(If setup correctly). Bump toe in will smoothe the car out on entry and the less ackerman keeps it smoothe in the corners and makes it overall easier to drive in higher traction conditions.
You can run it either way in any track conditions but this is the basis of how i decide to run my servo when racing.
