Follow the instructions, drop it on the track, show everyone your rear bumper.

Couldn't be much simpler than that, right?

Just ran my 12r for the first time ever,since having a break since march.Was not going to do 1/12th this year but the urge was to strong to resist.Bought the 12r from amc in the uk had my old cells from last season which were not very good new.So i was not expecting to be competive on the power side,BUT qualified 4th Fin 3rd in the a just lacking on the power side, could not believe how well the car went out the box.
Ordered new cells and the conversion kit.

I wasn't real good with building a great front end, so a buddy of mine sent me this. It makes great sense of adding a little clearance here and there to make sure it's all good.

Remember during set-up on carpet that the car likes a soft front and hard rear. I like to run .20 linears with the soft flex plates and screws in the rear with a copper spring. Run less tacky tires in the rear to get the car to rotate more.

You never want to be extemely biased front to rear in anything- Makes the car rotate to hard on one end and heats up the tires too much.

Hey Guys,

We now have our new pinions in stock and will have them on the website tommorow. The sizes range from 45 teeth to 60 teeth. here are some pics of them and also a few pics to show the amount of gear that can be fitted on the new DB12RR.

All pinions are nickel Teflon coated for maximum wear resistance and smooth mesh
