Once this gets sorted the BMI will be untouchable. I was already running top lap times, this will only make things easier.

Thanks
Ahh, bumpy tracks will need the higher ride height. Try going to 35 wt. oil. Try going a little more narrow on the front also. That should help a bit. Keep me posted on the results.

Got the DB12RR today, sooner than expected.
Just unpacked the kit, well the graphite parts look topnotch and much stiffer than from some other brands.
Just unsure about one thing. On the productpictures I always saw a foambumper but canīt find this in the kit. Is this not included?

The only thing that you need in that is the Trinity Pulse 10.5 motor, which is almost the same color Great Job!

Looks like the Losi ones to me. Shreff and Fairtrace had those on their cars.

What is the difference between the older db12, and the db12r and db12rr. I have lookde around but can't find a real answer. Could you also upgrade a db12 to the RR.
