The new pod works fine with the old flex plates. THe new flex plates are going to be the new standard being that they will fit both cars.

Jason - Nice job on the RR. This revised car makes me want to get another 1/12 now. After I get one, I will have to drive it up the rear of Yang's 1/12...

Default Linear springs

Hi Jason, i use 0,20 regular springs. Shall I use 0,22 linear instead or shall I stay with 0,20 (same track, same conditions)?

Get one, you won't be disappointed.

Just finished my building my DB12RR. I had a little trouble with the front end because I had never built a 1/12 scale before. The rest of the kit went together very nicely. This is the car Xray should have "rebadged". Beautiful car.
Since my track is low/medium grip carpet should I start with the inner hole on the flex plates.

You can start there. If the car needs to be more mellow go to the long position. Im glad you like the car buddy. Thanks for the compliment.

Updated car (RR version) is definitely on point! More turn-in, less mid-corner scrub, more on-power steering, and it is FAR more consistent in how it steers throughout the corner. I was faster both in outright speed and in consistency. With so many good 12th's out now I am glad that I run the DB12 series as the solid design allows for a great platform to stay current with. Great job as usual Jason and your customer service really helps you to stand out, continue to think of the "little guy". BTW Jason did you get my PM?
