With Nosram 9.5, and ISTC (same TC), and 4 cell, im start with 42-44 mm, is the track is very long, i go up to 46-47 mm, work for me.

Caution,10.5 at 58 mm with Lipo, i assume is 3.7v, not 7.4v.

In other hand, i planned to buy the car with some parts, low front suspension, rear pivot block, etc...
The part number "DB3015R" are more flex rear plates than original ?
I have a lot front and rear springs, rear ride heighs from others cars, king pins, front axles, etc... i assume are valid for this car ?
I planned to test the car, and more advance i buy a Lipo chassis.
The rear lowered pods, what benefits provided, or is only to use rear very small tyres?

Sorry for all the questions , Luis C.

THe DB3015R are the thin flex plates. They offer more rear traction and also settle the car down if it is too aggressive. All the parts such as kingpins axles and springs are interchangable with the parts you have. However our car comes with nice upgrades such as titanium front axles, the IRS ride height adjuster cam set,7075 aluminum pivot balls, and much more so you really wont run into any breakage problems with them. The lowered pods allow you to run extremely small tires.

Default New car

Sup people, after thinking about it for a while I've decided to get the DB12RR Lipo car....I drove a 12l4 all last season and I was improving enough as a driver to consider an upgrade.....after reading this board and others, you guys are real informative and that helped make my decision. As for this car, will the Fantom 5000 single-cell fit??? I know by the BMI site it's meant for the SMC but its sold out the few places I've checked....Also with the Novak booster, it is a plug n go type of thing or is there soldering involved(not the best at it, lol) and last what is the best starting pinion/spur ratio for a say.....80x50 semi-techinal carpet track for a 13.5 with precut/uncut parma tires(cant get a hold of a tire truer till season starts) but can practice anytime to get the car goin.

thanks in advance

I'm guessing it would, considering its a "Lipo" chassis and probably measured out enough for most 1 cell lipos. Just my opinion. -MA

Best if you get the dimensions and check for yourself. I think the dimensions for the SMC have been posted in this thread but easy to find on the internet as well as the Fantom.

If you get one, let us know how its going for you. You'll be coming from using a T-bar.

I drove my car for the first time on asphalt this past Sunday, and I must say this car is a beast. I could of had more laps, but I screwed up on my setup. It's very important that you pay particular attention to your setup. I ran 10.5 BL -4 cells (4600) and it was pretty fast down the straight away. I will keep you posted as I continue to work on my driving (hee, hee) and my setup.

Peace
J

i am now down 30 wt with blue spring, and i am now noticing the bumps in the boards (carpet over plywood subfloor) maybe the bumps are growing or i am just trying to go faster?

anyways, i was wondering what you might suggest for bumpy carpet (bumpy enough that you can see it in how the groove is building on the straight(you can see the effect of tires unloading on backside of the bump).
i am thinking for my next go, i will try the new 3 hole piston and 25 to 30 weight with the copper spring, or maybe i need to go lower damping and blue spring to soak up the bumps better?
