I just got my car from the LHS. I went in with the attitude of lets get the recommendation from the guys who run the track.

So they gave some stuff to get started.

JR3650 Servo - I already read this is an issue.

Novak 4 Cell GTB Spread Spectrum
Futaba 3PKS 2.4Ghz w 603FS
Jaco Wheels - Pink and Grey for carpet, i hope they got this right
Parma Exp Speed 8
Motor was out of stock, so I am looking for a recommendation on a stock brushless.
Batteries I am going to get after I finish building.
Comp Elec 35GFX w/ PS


Does anyone see any issues with the rest of these choices to help out a Nooobeee before things go wrong.

I don't see anything obviously wrong with anything there other than the servo which you've already identified. Do yourself a favor there and stick with the Futaba 9650 or the KO 949. The other equipment picked out is all top-shelf...you won't go wrong with their recommendations.

Don't worry a lot about the tires. My choice would be a little different but the key there is to understand that:

a) you'll want several different compounds to try...they are track/driver specific. You won't find a "magic bullet" via recommendation, though if the fast guys at your track are running that combo it's likely close.

b) tires are expendable. I've got a couple sets that have been run once and set aside as failed experiments. This stings a little, but now that tires are costing half what they did even a couple years ago this is less and less a concern.

I would strongly recommend the Jaco's on Prism wheels and do yourself a favor and pick up one of the pairs of 3mm machined spacers Jason has made to accomodate these on the DB12R...saves the hassle of half-dozen shims on each side of the axle.

You should also buy a bumper. I won't run without one. Jason sells the SlapMaster bumper specifically for this chassis or they are available direct from SlapMaster.

The front height spacers seem pricey but are worth every penny for the stability and adjustability they provide.

Everything else is great, but can wait.

Thanks for the reply. Great info.

Yeah on the tires, I figure these are good enough to get out on the track and get a feel for the car. I can work from there.

Yeah I think the bumper is going to wind up being a good idea. I will see if the LHS has one when I return the JR servo. If not I can just order directly.

Not sure I know if I have Prism wheels or not. The box just says 1:12 and color on a sticker.

I think I will go with the Futaba 9650 servo just to keep things simple.

I will be making some prototype parts for the prism wheels that will allow you to adjust the wheel flex on the inside wall this week. If it works the way it should it will allow you to adjust the wheel flex for changing track conditions.
