Jason, what I'm looking for and probably a lot of others is a simple rear ride height adjuster that doesn't require the need to use the current ride height adjusters. Serpent have a cam adjustment in the rear pod on their new car I believe.

What can you come up with????
I havent really thought about it because the existing setup has always been very good and solid. The serpent car has a few things that are a little different but as burt stated, a cam does slightle change wheelbase and also if there is a locator pin,which without a clamp there needs to be, you will need to still remove the axle otherwise it will slip. I can look further into the matter and see if i can come up with something but like i said, i never really thought about it until this point. Thanks for the input on the matter. I always need to know what customers are looking for so i can always improve.

Jason, you have a sketch in your email. Hope it sets you thinking more on this idea

But it can be improved and that's what Jason likes to do

Hey Jason,
My DB12R was running great today. I managed to win the "B" with it. I really like this car because of the durability, which keeps me on the track more. Which has really helped me get better after my 8 week hiatus from RC. My best lap time has dropped by .3 seconds every week. With my other 12th by another manufacturer, I was always having tweak issues and parts popping out and breaking because of the smallest hits. Thanks Jason and keep up the good work.

Anybody, I've just installed my SpeedPassion GT and Novak 10.5 (with 13mm rotor) in my DB12R and I'm looking for suggestions on what a good starting point to set the GT and a good rollout number. I'm running on an asphalt track, (the Bass Pro Shop parking lot in the Jackson-Pearl, Miss. area) It's a 160 - 180 x 80 - 90 foot track, not bad on traction when the VHT is sprayed down.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Jason,
Since you asked...

I would really like it if you could make a rear ride-height adjuster set that accomodates 1/2" flanged bearings instead of the standard 3/8" size.

I'm also curious to see your rear pod droop adjuster gadget you referenced a few weeks ago.

Thanks,
Tom

I think Jason already looked into this earlier. If i remember correctly, it would require the redesign of the rear pod plates.

super low pod plates

It's been done. Check out Brian Bodine's new Slapmaster which has 1/4" x 1/2" bearings.

He discusses it on post # 366 here. 12th scale gallery (Post your pics... body on and body off)

We run ~70mm roll out with an SP GT and 10.5 in a DB12R on tracks that size. Use all the default GT settings.
