I am really glad you like the car buddy. We wanted to keep it simple and offer the high performance that we all demand from these little cars. I am a racer myself and a lazy one at that. I dont like wrenching on race day. I like to just drive the car and have fun.
Thanks for the response. I will be on the lookout for the pic of your car so I can see how it's laid out. Then I will reconfigure my car accordingly.

If you race on carpet you might want to check out the new cross brace and the front ride height adjusters are sweet. The brace is not essential mind you (unless you race on high bite carpet layouts) but nice to have none the less.

Hey Jason- We need to get you and the Misses to take a "business trip" vacation for a few days up here to the Chicagoland area...there is NO pizza like Chicago Pizza and you could write it off because you would be playing with...opps, I mean "helping" all of us DB12'ers....

darnold, Thanks for the help on the minimal spares I need to obtain.
Right after the holidays I'll be placing an order.

Jason, thanks for the info on the car, but, I think I must be missing something, hope you can further clarify.

You said to mount my speedo on the right side, as in the pic of your car on the website. Based on this pic http://www.bmiracing.com/images/Jayscar.jpg

it looks like the speedo is on the left?????? Am I looking at the correct pic. It was in the gallery, 2nd row down, second car from the left.

Help a brutha' out.

Are you guys running the one piece rear brace all the time or just during high traction "big" races? The car is really stiff without it and stiff as a brick when it's installed
