There are some really cool museums and stuff in the windy city she could get lost in while you race

Hey Inspector...I was first! I know they can come to Chicago first and then they will NEED to go to Hawaii in order to de-thaw from our on setting winter!!!

Jason, the RR is killer dude, thanks for the updates, I was .3 faster. Hopefully you got the link I sent you to my "review". I just couldn't believe how much more steering the car gained in all 3 aspects of the corner all while being more stable and consistent to boot.

I am going to try to make Snowbirds in 2010, by then our son will be 1.5yrs old and I will feel better about leaving for several days so we will finally be able to hook up and I can learn more about suspensions and setup from you.

I got it bro. That was really cool.

Im really glad you like the car. We really felt that the changes made to the car really worked out well. Im sure it will show when we finally get a big race under our belts with it.

Well speaking of big races, Jason do you plan on attending any in 2009? I've decided to go to Cleveland next year. It's gonna be their 30th year running. Last time I went was the 25th US Indoor Champs.

After another great night with the car, I cannot help but wonder what can get better?
It seems like i am scrubbing some speed mid-corner. I think i have the .020 linears in. I dont know really how to explain it but, it feels like the car is rolling over itself. Any ideas?

Hey lorider75,

Im not sure what setup your running but try this

Front:

.020 Linears
1 1/2* camber (if you need more steering go to 2*)
10* Caster or 5* Caster with both white shims in rear (more steering mid to out)
Jaco prism's purple 1.65"
Half degree toe out
#3 shure lube on king pins
lorider75

Center Shock 40w with gold spring
Use a 2mm shim under the the shock post
1.5mm pod droop
Batteries center (more on power steering)
#3 or #4 IRS Shure lube in the dampner tubers

Rear:
172mm rear width
Jaco prism's Yellow 1.75"
3.5mm to 4mm ride height

This setup here works for me everywhere I go. Maybe you could post your setup we can help your more with your setup let me know how this works for ya.

Hope this helps,
Mike

Got a question. Just finished building mt DB12RR. I am checking ride height. At the front corners under the body posts, both sides 4mm. Rear of the chassis under the rear body posts, left side is 4.5mm, right side 4mm. Rear of the pod behind the rear tires both sides, 4mm. The car is balanced right to left using chasis balancing buttons and there is no tweak according to my MIP station. Should I be looking for what caused the 4.5mm measurement under the left side body post?

I would check to make sure that the pivot balls are adjusted properly. What you can do is back the set screw out 1/8-1/4 turn on the side with the high ride height and see if that fixes it.

WOOHOO my DB12RR conversion kit just arrived Now I have a quandry as I am headed toward a rebuild...I've recently replaced the bad servo gear and case on my old airtronics 94145 servo (the old 1/12th favorite) so I no longer have to have the servo mounted flat on the chassis like I have been since I got the car. I've really got the car setup working well with the flat servo but I'm wondering if I should re-learn a whole new setup and go to the more traditional angle mounted servo or just keep going with what I know. What are the pros/cons of going to the angled servo and how will that change affect the car's handling? I have my theories based on pan car racing back in the day but so much has changed in setup theory over the years I feel like I'm starting over.

I normally run the servo flat on carpet and angled on asphalt.

Running the servo flat will reduce ackerman and also add a slight bit of bump toe in. This will make the car more smooth on corner entry and not so darty and will have a smooth overall feel though the corner. On asphalt this setup tends to give the car a pushy feel. I run the servo angled to add ackerman and eliminate the bump toe all together. This helps get the car to enter the corner when bite is lower and you need to set the front end in the corner.

Hmmm...decisions decisions. I think for now I will keep my setup the same since it is working, and see how the new chassis changes effect the current setup. I need another car to test setups on Maybe after the birds...Gotta save my pennies for that trip

I was wondering also about these new tires being used in WGT...Lilac is it? Is there a 1/12th version and has anyone asphault tested them yet? Oh! And when will the pinions be available?
