Good Luck!!!
Whaaattttsss uuuuppppp????? Thanks for the additional info. I am so stoked about this car. When you say softer spring do you mean front or center? BTW, is IRS #3 sure lube around 10K Diff Lube?

Using the very unscientific how fast the bubble rises through the bottle when you turn it upside down method, I would say # is just a little lighter than the 10K.

Aluminum screws are lighter and work very well for 1/12th scale for the most part...Except in high stress areas there's no need for anything else

Haagar- Thanks. It sounds like 7K diff lube should work then.

The instruction manual for the DB12R is 90% done. We have to do some additional photography on a production car to complete it. Jason will review it on Monday and as soon as the pics are done (it will take a week or so) we will see about posting a PDF of the complete manual

The manual will be the most complete 1/12th assembly guide seen to date. It will include a lot of tricks and tips along the way. The best part will be the setup guide in the back where Jason and I will get our big fat heads together and cover all the settings on the car in detail.

FYI, we will not release the manual until its 100% done so don't call us about it on monday

Jason..........have you considered cutting the chassis so that a personal transponder would sit down in the chassis? Not that it would make a big difference, but would be cool.
