Here it is w/out the battery. The wires get held in place when the battery is in place.

No problem. You should be thanking Casey cause I copied his wiring. Thanks Casey!! I'm debating if I should be really anal and shorten all the wires that go into the receiver....Hmmmm...

Although, I don't have the new brace yet so the layout could change depending on how the new brace fits.

Jason,

Got to drive the DB12R today....Man this car is sweet! A friend of mine also got the DB12R and we were turning some good laps with it and we commented on how much nicer it carried turns then our other cars.

---

Here's my question on setups.

I didn't realize my old servo had the ears cut out so I could not use the included alum. servo mounts. The only way I could get the car working for today was to screw the servo onto the chassis with a screw/locknut going through those horizontal mounts on the Futaba servo. It stayed pretty solid in there. I used taller ballstuds on the steering arms as noted in the instructions. But because of the servo location I had to place the ballstuds on the servo saver backside. If I mounted them on front they would the frontend assembly.

So my question is what relation does the turnbuckle horizontal angle front to rear have if any in terms of setup. Also does the outer/inner height angle work the same way it does in TC?

The car drove real well and my friends car had a different setup but we turned pretty close to the same lap times. Just wondering those questions to see if I could benefit from ordering a new servo case from Futaba to mount it on the standard angle. I'll post a pic if this does not make sense :P

===

Either way this car rocks!

Hey guys,

This weekend i got to run my car and it was on a track that allowed Jack the gripper for compound only. I have never used this before and from alot of the horror stories i have heard i was a little nervous. I have found a setup that works absolutely incredible with the use of jack. My car was actually the best i have ever felt it. It was so smooth and easy to drive but at the same time was very aggressive at all points of the corner and carried a ton of corner speed.

The traction started out very low and grooved up pretty good to what i would consider medium bite. The changes i had to make from low to medium bite were minimal. I will post the setup on the website this week.
