How good is the instruction manual with the db12. I've built pan cars before but just curious.

If you've built a pan car before the DB12R will almost fall together for you. As it is, the instructions provided are VERY good. Not quite "vigorously shake the box of loose parts and they assemble themselves into an A-Main at the Nats winning car" good, but the next best thing.

I lucked out and got my car built, and built by someone that definately knew what he was doing!

I think the instructions do get you going in the right direction. The only thing I would have liked to see was what the upper control arms length need to be? They show the length of the steering turnbuckles and think it would be nice to have a base length for the upper control arms.

I understand that camber can vary from track to track or driver to driver. But everything else is set to a good base setting without needing any speciality tools. Yah I know a camber gauge can be had for cheap blah blah blah

But other then that the directions are very good.

True that would be nice...on the other hand no pan car instruction manual I've ever read had that in there so far.

Need to get you a setup station for that Xtant I'll bring mine to the track if you want to use it there.

I did'nt realize that? I guess it is a little harder to measure the upper arm length since it's not like a turnbuckle. But if you say 2mm between the end of the rod end and the end of the arm it would be a little easier for us newbies

ThanX for the offer on the setup station, but so far I am o.k. with my caveman method

I have a Holeshot setup board that I've had forever. It's super easy to use and was really inexpensive in it's day. I noticed it still showed up on a Holeshot website a few months ago but I'm not finding that website now.
