Hey guy's if ya get a chance, run Irrgangs front end with his caster blocks. It gives the car a slightly longer arm setup real smooth and feels great Mid corner. you can play around with the front roll centers on it.

I sold your transponder. I will bring it to the birds.

It depends on how much you hit

hey adrian are you saying for carpet that the servo back and the ball studs in front of servo saver or the servo forward and the ball studs behind servo saver? i have them behind and my servo forward right now. my turnbuckles are straight. i feel like this setup is not enough for corner speed. if i move my servo back and put the ball studs in front i will have some akerman and the weight will be moved back and should transfer more weight to front right? my servo is flat by the way. and servo is ko 949.thanx.

hey craig,

you have the servo set up good for carpet. Try going to a harder front tire. Usually when the fronts are too soft it will kill your corner speed. For stock i like purple front and yellow rears.

I would start at around a 65mm rollout and shoot from there. Also keep in mind that you want to bump the timing up some on the speedo

thanks jason im gonna try purples. i usually run lilac but the bite is high so purple will work. alot of the fast guys run purple. i always thought they got gummy and a little inconsistent late in the run but im gonna give em another shot with the bmi db12r since its unlike any other 1/12 scale in creation!! thanx again!!

I have always stayed away from purples myself until about 3 months ago. I was having cornerspeed problems and i was going the wrong direction to fix it. I tried everything and it got to the point that the car wouldnt respond to the changes i was making. Then after thinking about it, i decided to try a harder front tire and a low rubber content rear to free the rear and keep the front planted with less tire flex. This was it. I had to backpedal to where i started when the bite was lower and my car was working well. Once i did the car was dialed again. It just goes to show you how important tires are.
