Jason,

I tried the settings we spoke about.....Car worked great, I just over drived the car to the umpteenth degree, but as a testament to the cars durability. I broke nothing and should have. The car should have been tweak and there was none... I made a bad change to camber and the car was still very drivable...I am still not use to brushless throttle control.

Will get more track time next Saturday with a little different setup changes. I feel like the car has too much steering as of right now. Any hints as to changes to help mellow out initial turn in? Exit steering is pretty much on rails.
Just loving the car the more I drive it.....Just need more and more track time on asphalt...it is just making me look like a rookie...LOL

i have not found any advantage to it as of yet. i have also been using the transponder as a weight for balancing.depending on your electronics,it may need to go in different areas.i dont wat to close out any tuning options for the end user.if i found any positive advantage to lowering the transponder,i would really spend more time trying to make it happen but i just feel that it is more important to be able to put the transponder where it needs to be over lowering a little

Will do,
But probably not till Monday as I am like scheduled out for all of today...Me and wifey time...
Yea I think the front might be a little narrow and I might have a bit too much front camber. Will go through the car and give you the 1 2 3's of it.
Thanks for all the help,

MR. SHOOKIE, I'm thinking of going brushless when I get the DB12R, how has the throttle control changed for you from brushed?

It takes some getting use to. But once you do it feels very nice. You can change the drag brake settings in the ESC but I seemed to like the stock setup. Rather get use to driving it like that as it gives it optimum performance IMHO.
