I've noticed on mine the left to right front being off as well...I just put a rear axle shim under the low side on both screws and it worked just fine. Also check the pre-load on the springs...you might have more droop on one side then the other.

Thanks for the info. How do you measure the preload - do you just check the spring length with verniers?

By the number of shims on the front end. To check for a difference left to right lift one side axle and see if there is a gap between the lower arm and the steering block. If there is you'll have droop so you want to make sure both sides have the same gap.

Leon was super fast and would have won the main if his electronics didnt shut down. He was the fastest car on the track. Im glad he was running the DB12RR also.

I TQ'ed and won the World GT class. The DB10R was an absolute missile. I ran the same set of tires all day(Lilac spec tires) With almost no wear.
It was definitely a good day of racing. as many know mike boylan puts on a great show.

my car was absolutely awesome!! to say the least. I put it into complete cruise control with three minutes left in the race only to smoke a speed control with 25 seconds left to go DOH! crap happens though. however, I think a BMI wrapped up the FCC championship

What all does the DB12R to DB12RR conversion kit come with? Does it have all the new rear pod pieces?

So, if I want the lowered side pieces that lower the rear axle I would have to get those separately. I think I will stay with my DB12R for now and not upgrade.

I hope to get it on the track soon. Had to drop out of RC for a few months due to financial constraints.

Yeah I don't think the lowered pod plates come with it...they really are not needed but are nice to have. If you are not yet running BL either you will be fine with the stock DB12R too...well either way you'll be fine with the stock DB12R...the RR just refines the design a bit.

I will be running the new SMC LiPo and a 13.5 most likely. I doubt I am good enough of a driver to worry about it. I doubt I could tell a difference. I can always upgrade parts as I break them.
