Maybe I will get a co based motor and try 44. Cos type x motor does not have that torque

Anyway hows does it feel on the track with the Co motor compared to the rest of trinity's counterparts? Does using co based motor require softer tire compounds?

Default Sensor Wire

What's a good length sensor wire for 1:12?

Also, anyone fit a Vortex in the DB12R yet? Just wanted to make sure it fits before I buy one.

Having a vortex myself - awesome motor! And yes - it fits perfectly. The lenght of sensor wire depends on your eletronics layout, 15 cm in most cases should do just fine.

I'm definitely picking up 10.5, but wondering if I should go with 4.5 or 5.5 for mod? Anybody have a preference?

I'm driving the 5.5 and don't feel much slower than the guys with 4.5. But you should really go talk to guys at your local track and go with what they are going.

got my first run with the db12r this weekend. I started with the kit suggested tires of dbl pink front and rear and the car was ok if a little to much steering for me. I then went to the tried and tested purple front and grey rear that everybody uses here and found the car to be much better. It was although scrubbing the front tires a bit so i may try moving my cells forward a hole for the next meeting as they were in the rearmost position. I did try running more additive on the front tires, i went from half inside front to 3/4 inside but it made the car hook for the first 4 or 5 minutes. I qualified third and ended up with an overall win for the meeting. This was at the scottish carpet masters series. The car worked really well. I also found changing from jack the gripper to cs high grip additive made the car alot more pradictable and meant i could push harder. This put me on tq pace in the last qualifier. If it was not for a few tumnles i would have had tq but i had to settle for third. Looking forward to my next meeting which will be a brca national down in cramlington. Wish me luck

Dave Arnold -

Where did you get the o-rings that you put over the ball ends to take out the slop? Also, what are the equivalent e-clips for the IRS upper hinge pins? I thought you mentioned something from Sportwerks...

Thanks!

CarbonJoe- Kevin Kane gave them to me, they are from Losi shocks if I am not mistaken. I was out of the Associated orange ones that we use in our 12th scale shocks. I just took them off per Tim Exelby to keep any binding from occurring. I think you might gain a little more rear bite with them off and it may make the car a little more stable in really high bite but I must admit that my car was really good in the really high bite stuff at the Halloween Classic.

The e-clips that I found that work are the ones that go on the SportWerks' cars, they are not exactly the same OD as the original IRS e-clips but the ID of the SportWerks makes them fit like a glove. Best of all is that a package of 10 only cost a buck or two.

Wishes like wise for all of the DB12R's over at the Friendship race in Sweden.

Hey Jason,

Have you done any more thinking on those rear height adjusters to accomodate 1/4 X 1/2 bearings? I know you said you'd need to do different side pods, but you're pretty amazing with this stuff.

Had a bad experience with a 1/4 X 3/8 bearing costing me a win in 19T this weekend. I hadn't seen the inner seal and keeper riding on my rear axle until I was powering the car up for the main. Too late to do anything about it other than pray. Passed into the lead at about 3 minutes and was pulling away 1-2 tenths per lap. Then at 5 or so minutes she coasted to a stop with the sound of destroyed spur. Sure enough, the rear axle wobbled like a drunk nun in the right side adjuster...the bearing was gone.

I'd pretty much (within reason) spend what it took to get the more robust bearings and I'm sure I'm not alone.

I am getting ready to do a run of pod plates now. I will do up a set once i get it all proofed. It will take some wierd configuration but i should be able to do it.
