When measuring rear pod droop, is it with Chassis on blocks or Weight on Wheels?

Thanks,

I've never seen a more active manufacturer participating in the forums providing support!

Although BMI cars doesn't really appeal to me yet, but the thought of having someone always backing up in the forums is a huge plus factor

Thanks,
I measure pod droop with the car weighted at ride height. I measure the droop over ride height.

Jason, I was wondering on the pivot ball, if it would be worth adding graphite grease like they use in pine car derby to reduce wear on those parts? Just something that got me thinking for when I do get a chance to get the DB12R.

i would not. the tolerence on the balls to the housing is soo tight that anything you put in it will add resistance. even 25 weight shock oil is not a smooth and nothing at all.

The pivot balls and ball studs have a nickle teflon coating on them which is extremely hard and acts as a dry lubricant. They will never need oils or greases. The only thing that breaks the coating down is alot of dirt getting imbedded in the inner ball housing wall. Oil and grease will amplify that problem. In other words, say no to grease or oil.

thank you Mr. Breiner for designing such a wonderful car....

i finally made it out to our weekly carpet excursion and all i can say is wow. i spent several months making small changes to a 12l4(and by no way am i saying its a bad car, i quite enjoyed the wy it drove) but after putting down the db12r(with the box stock setup) i believe i wasted my time.
i had Pops drive the car(he usually rocks a diggity) and i have a feeling yoru gonna get a phone call from him relatively shortly

again thank you for the car and the support

Hi Jason, I was looking at the new springs in the on-line store. I though you were going to offer these as a set but I see them listed seperately. Is there a part # for the set or did you decide to just sell seperate?

Chris
