I have a question for you gods. I setup my DB12rr elctronicaly tonight, but I don't have the balance buttons, and think its going to be off, leaning towards the passenger side. But my question is, were is most of the weight that pulls down from the servo? In the pic i have the green line which shows the split, and the other two colors on the servo head and main body of the servo.

So I have the servo mounted fully towards the left side of the chasis to try to make up for most of the weight on the right side. I'm thinking about throwing my pt under the servo, and probably add about 7-10 grams. Will this be enough? Any advice? Thanks

hey mark there is no need to add any weight to this car if your running nimh. first put your reciever on the passenger side and your speedo on the driver side. it will balance perfect also flip the speedo the right way so its flat. the db12rr is balanced for brushless already. keep the reciever and the speedo even from each other side to side and close the center of the car

Hey guys,

I am in the process of making a cool new tire truer arbor. It is 1 arbor that fits 1/12th front and rear wheels,1/10th pan car front and rear wheels, and TC wheels. This is the 1st time this has ever been done. I should have it done by the end of the week so i will post pics and put it on the site.

It is very cool. It has some real nice fancy machining on it to make it look cool. There will be 2 thread on adapters to make it fit them all. The only tool required is the allen wrench to clamp it on the truer.

If it kicks ass, we'll get behind it. I personally am always looking for the best arbor, so you're under some pressure to produce. Any dingleberry can make a car... but a proper arbor, now that's a thing of beauty.
