... Just ordered the DB12RR from BMI...Excited about this kit. My very first 12th scale. Looking forward to racing some indoor carpet at a couple local tracks in my area! With all the good reviews and references to this kit, it was an easy pick out of all the considerable 12th scales. Looking forward to getting to know this car in and out.

I'll put up a post as soon as I get back from the track tonight. Just take your time building the car. If you have any questions or problems, do NOT hesitate to contact Jason. He was very helpful to me with the new kit. It's also nice knowing this car is made right here in the USA!! I feel patriotic owning one. (ok that may be a stretch. )

Guys

I'm currently running the 5 degree caster blocks on my car with 1 spacer either side of the block. I think I'm right in saying that if I want more on-power steering I need to increase the amount of caser, but using the 10degree block is too much.

Which way do I go with the caster spacers to increase camber?

Jason, loving my DB12R, and now you have gone and made an RR, and by the sounds of things, it's looking good Will we be getting them, or the conversion parts n the UK soon

terryh. putting the spacers in the rear will give you 6 degrees. you are at about 4 now. i run 10 degree blocks with spacers in the rear on high bite carpet and do not have too much steering. its perfect

Hey Terry,

The castor blocks(0,5,and 10 degree) do not effect your static castor. What they do is change the angle of the upper hinge pin to dictate how much castor reduction you get as your suspension compresses. The castor shims are what will change your static castor. 2 forward is 2 degrees,1 front and 1 rear of the upper arm is 4 degrees and both back is 6 degrees. Try going to both to the back.

Im sure Wim will be ordering some of the conversions and new cars with his next order. You guys will have the stuff very soon.

Jason, I have to order my kit real soon.....I'm Jones'n hard

But I just wanted to say that I've been running this 12R for awhile now and I'm continually impressed by how stable and tweak-free it is. Every single time I leave the drivers' stand, I'm smilin' ear to ear. It's been a month since I've changed anything on it set-up wise and the car feels as smooth as silk.

I have my batts all the way back w/5-degree blocks & shims in the back. I'm wondering how will the car react to putting the batts forward w/ 10-degree blocks & shims forward? Right now I'm at the point of just trying things to see how different I can get the car to handle in the corners. Playing with tire compounds is getting quite boring. I always end up w/ Blacks-Yellows

Car is fast as all get out w/ the Trinity Duo 13.5.....WOW!

...Alright Scoob, I'll be peaking over your shoulder at that set up sheet once I start running with you and the rest of the 12th tribe...lol...Your car was on point tonight bro. Looked REAL dialed and smooth on all points of the track....Well the fact that you have tremendous driving skills help too, but from a spectator's point of view, I could tell the car was hooked and did what you wanted it to do on the track. Nice run, and cool seeing you fellas last night at the bowl.

Broke my first part Friday night. Had a nasty, almost dead square into the board. Broke the battery positioning piece. Car was damn fast up until then too. I'm placing an order for parts tonight. I better tear the car down to see if anything else is bent or broke first though.

The fast guys at my place know I'm coming.
