The red spring work very well when the bite comes up. What it does is help keep the car flat and speeds up the weight transfer as needed for higher bite conditions. When the bite comes up you need the car to react faster to compensate. It makes the car smoothe again. The gold works very well in most track conditions.
When you mount the servo flat, you will want to put the medium ballstuds on the steering blocks to lessen the bumpsteer. It is very difficult to completely eliminate it but having a slight bit will help keep the car smooth.
Thanks for the compliments on the car.

It is a really nice format, saturday is open / controlled practice so you know how you stack up. Tri-state has the full lap counting system with practice mode that call out your lap times as you go. Plus there are some really fast competition. This is going to be a great time. We run paragon at the track.

There is only one way to achieve this; Slapmaster thrust bearing. You can make your own too if you figure out how it works, but its so much easier and cheaper to get the original.

You can run your diff very loose with it and it just wont slip. Also your diff plates last forever. I build my diffs with ceramic balls and it's pretty much build it and forget it, even in mod.

yup, I got some last year and they're very good. It almost makes it too easy to build a diff with these

Hey Jason,
Cleveland was awesome. Craig's and Jason's cars looked awesome on the track. I saw alot of DB12R's there. My car was running good until the last round of practice, when my car glitched in the straight and when full speed head on to the barrier, and I broke the center pivot, split one of the side flex plates, split the lower pod plate, and split the side nerf wing. It was one heck of a crash. I had plenty of spares, but I didn't have the carbon fiber pieces. So I had to break out the CRC, which I thought was good, but even with all of my setup changes, the CRC still couldn't touch the DB12R. The DB12R had significantly more corner speed and handled the bumps better. Thank god my local track, 360 RC Speedway, had parts when I came home, so I stocked up like a bear hibernating. There is a big trophy race at 360 RC Speedway this weekend, so I will let you know how I do. I know the DB12R is really popular there, so if a bunch of us work on set-up, there could be a victory looming.

We have tested a few different chassis for different track conditions. Pretty much wheelbase adjustment to see if there is any room for improvement. We will always be testing and trying new things. Some will get released and some will be scrapped. I will always be developing new stuff to test to always have the upperhand. I will let you guys know when we come across parts that are showing improvements and release them immediately. The chassis that has been tested has not proven to be any better so far. It has its high points but also has some flaws. We will keep at it but i cant guarentee that the new chassis will see production unless it shows to be a good improvement.
