I agree with that statement. I raced my DB12R for the first time Friday without any practice and limited 1/12th scale experience and the car was very easy to drive. I had a chance to practice with it Saturday and made some changes to the setup and I could feel every adjustment and the car just kept getting better. BMI also has great customer service.

We believe the DB12R is the most advanced 1/12th on the market. Its not a T-Bar Car and its not a Link Car...we took the best features of both and created the new Flex Link rear suspension system. The Flex link system allows the DB12R to work under conditions where other cars have to compromise. For example T-Bar cars have to go to a softer t-bar on bumpy tracks but this change also reduces steering. In order to keep the car hooked up you have to compromise and deal with less steering. Link cars are great on high bite carpet but they struggle on low bite carpet an on asphalt. They just don't transfer weight agressively enough to generate the traction needed on low bite tracks.

The DB12R can handle bumpy track without losing steering because our rear suspension allows independant adjustment for front to rear and side to side spring rates. The DB12R can be fast on high and low bite carpet and asphalt because the Flex links are much more progressive in spring rate than even progressive coil springs used on link cars.

The main selling point is the DB12R is just plain fast out of the box. It works everywhere with no fuss.

Thanks for the answers, it's appreciated. Opinions are great but they seldom answer anything. When I get around to upgrading, the DB12 will be on the list.

Thanks Again

Awsome job on support for the new website, fix a minor problem same day!! One question about the website inventory, is it "live" or actual inventory, in other words, if it's there, you have it in stock? Thanks again Jason!

The inventory has been taken and will be updated as the parts sell. Everything that is listed as in stock is there and ready to go.

The website is set up to display products at all times but it will not let you buy products that are not in stock.
