Jason & Keira,

Thanks for the support at Snowbirds. Your assistance and expertise made this year really great. Don't know how you had time to tune your car with all the help you gave everyone.

Looking forward to next year.

Wes

Hey guys,


I wanted to give you all a heads up on the next upgrade i will be working on for the DB10 and 12R. It will be a pod droop adjuster that works without using the shock length. I have it all figured out and will be cutting it this week. It will be adjusted with 1 set screw. It will be nice to not have to use the shock length for pod droop adjustment.

Congratulations to Darren Johnston(Fatbear) as he has just defended his national New Zealand title with his DB12R. He informed me that he was the only car to hit 32 laps at the track during the event. Way to go darren. Thats one hell of a showing for just getting the car a week prior to the race.

yeah great driving by darren.

I wasn't too far behind him in Qualifying, but a series of bad events made my finals not go so well.

well done again darren, always good for someone to set a good bar to aim towards

Carpet track latest setups??

haven't had chance to run the DB12R since Nov 2007 but I'll make up for that this weekend.

Saturday will be fresh/green, no/little grip for the 1st 2 rounds with rounds 3,4 & 5 providing grip

Sunday we'll have to much grip

which way to go for both days please?

Ive been running this on low bite carpet with GREAT results:

Red Center spring
Stock Flex plates with no screws
tall ballstud at front of shock
10k in the tubes
30wt oil in the shock
2.5mm pod droop
.18 front springs
6deg caster
10deg front blocks
5k wt on the front pins

It works great on my track which is low bite because it plants the rear end and still allows you to have a stupid amount of stearing, give it a try if your searching for setups and let me know how it works for you.
