Hey CarlosG.

Try This:

Front:
Jaco prizms Purple
.20 front spring
#4 shur lube Lube on the Kingpins
1* Camber
0* toe

Center shock 35-40 weight try a blue spring (car may push) then go to a gold spring.
Battery position: Start out and the rear position it helps with rear traction but the trade off you may lose alittle on power steering.

Try 3# or #4 Irrgangs shur lube

Rear
Jaco Yellows you might what to true your (Rear) tires a little larger because a smaller size wont hold the traction as well.Also play with your rear track width go to a narrow width and see how that goes.

Lower your rear ride hide slightly heres a example:
front ride hight 4mm rear 3.5mm lowering the rear helps gain some traction

You may also want to try out a high down force body protoform speed 12 or a parma HD or a zytec body.

I think thats it if I missed something let me know
Hope this helps
Mike

Thanks Mike, but I forgot to mention that it is an asphalt track. We race outdoors all year round weather permitting. Now the track is getting cooler and traction is alittle less than when we raced during the heat also it gets dusty once in awhile due to the winds blowing.

The most common bottles of surelube you will find yourself using is #3 and #4. #3 seems to be similar to maybe 15,000 and #4 is more like 20,000. I could be wrong but that is what it seems like to me.

Last weekend I ran on some carpet that hadn't been run on for a year+ after it was pulled up from being glued down. Traction was terrible until the main with a preset groove that pulled the car around. By the main my car was absolutely dialed. I ran:

Front:
Old style Jaco purple 1.60"
4mm ride height with .010 droop
.020 spring (AE style)
5000 kingpin lube
1.5 camber
0-.5 toe out
10 blocks both shims back

Rear:
Jaco Prism Gray 1.70"
IRS 3.5 ride height spacers down ~3.75mm ride height
Center shock 40wt, red spring, 2mm droop
Battery one position back from full forward
Stock flex plates
7000 in the tubes
Parma Speed 8 lightweight

This is for a Jack only track. Coat front tires 3/5 inside and full rear for as long as possible (about an hour). First ever TQ and first ever win racing with this crowd. This is with the original version of the car btw.

Well tonight was the first official race with the DB12R. Set TQ with a new track and lap record and won the A-main! Very happy with the car! Although in the main I had one spectacular crash and chipped the chassis right behind one of the battery slots. Kind of weird but still run able.

Congrats dude!

Just finished building my DB12RR. What a terrific kit. Easy to build, excellent fit and finish. I'd have to say the last time I built a car this well made was my X ray T1 Evo2. Jason was a big help in gettin me pionted in the right direction with what spares to buy. If anyone is thinking about picking up the new Silva shock BMI sells, GO FOR IT! Easy to build and smoooooooooooth. Gonna put the car on the track 1st time tomorrow. Looking forward to some fast laps.
