i wasnt going to use it, the track doesnt need the car to be any stiffer, people are running them best with the stock setup, so im just asking, no biggie. I would never learn if i dont understand what things do, lol.

Hey guys,

I just completed the final prototype of the DB10R. Man,quite a bit different layout but the weight placement is right where i wanted it. This is by far the easiest time i have had wiring brushless gear. I will post pics as soon as i can so you can see what i mean Everything went according to plan.

If you're talking about 360 Raceway, I believe it's a safe bet that if people start showing up with Pro10's they WILL run the class.

really? interesting. atleast itll be faster in stock and 19t than the 4wd class now, because they are so much lighter, and people will be happy because you can run a normal body on them, lol. what are they going to run for as price, under $400 right?

The car will be 300 or less. At this time we are looking for it to come in right at 300. We tested the car today against the origional prototype and the new car was much better. The car was everything i wanted it to be. I didnt spend too much time fine tuning it because it was working really well but i know there is alot more in the car. Overall i am extremely pleased with the car and i will now go into production with them. I took pics last night and i will get them up here in a few.

Here are pics as promised.

What i did was make it fit 4 cell or 7.4 lipo saddle pack grouped together as a brick pack. This was based on the dimensions of the new trackpower lipo. I moved the electronics to the rear so you can center the brushless speedo to balance the car without adding weight. You also use less wire which helps with any voltage loss through long wires. Another plus is that it gives you centralized mass from side to side and front to rear helping the car rotate better. You will also be using the weight of the brushless speedo when running lipo to your advantage by adding that weight to the back of the car.

I went with losi style battery mounting with a dropout tray that is fixed with 2 4-40 screws to remove the battery out of the bottom of the car. There is adjustable flex points in the chassis for tuning to different track.

I really hope you guys like what i have come up with. We track tested the car and it really was amazing.
