Would you STOP it!

Its torture for those of us that cant afford one right now LOL

Nope, the ups guy came and went and did not leave my car. It should be here Monday. I'm going to go by my office in the morning and double check just in case they came back by.

I think I got that, I was kind of leaning more toward a buleprinting type of situation.

Thats on the list of things to do. I can't say exactly when it will get done though. There are a couple hop ups we want to come out with before that though.

The kit in the pics was built just to provide photos for the assembly manual. I did knock off the sharp edges but I didnt seal them (I was in a hurry ).

For racing on carpet I carefully round all the lower edges of the chassis and rear pod plates then I CA all the edges This keeps the chassis from snagging the carpet or splintering if you hit a corner dot or board.

For racing on asphalt I knock off the sharp edges but there is no need to seal the chassis as it serves no purpose.

The guys running the DB12R at the Florida Minnreg race are flying!

Jason (BMI DB12R) and EA (CEFX C12) are the fastest in stock by a ton.

Paul Wynn (BMI DB12R) is fastest in 19T.

I'm one of the Phx guys, I've only been able to make it down a couple of times and those were the first and only times I've ever run on carpet so I spent most of my time chasing the setup. I had the solid yellow blocker car; I'm not down there this weekend due to work Fri and commitments for Sun. If I get the chance to head down again soon mabey I'll get a chance to see your new car in action.

man,what a day of racing.i got my car really good but was having some issues with my spektrum all day.it kept shutting off for 2 seconds and then coming back on i did wind up finishing 5th.we had alot of real fast guys runn ing 1/12th today.2 full heats of stock and 1 full heat of 19 turn. Paul Wynn was absolutely unreal with his DB12R winning the main by a longshot with alot of other fast guys.the car got alot of attention after people saw it run.we kept getting comments about how much corner speed it carries and how smoothe it looks on the track.the only change we did to pauls car over the box setup was we went to .018 front springs when the bite came up.all in all it was an excelent showing with 4 DB12R's making the top 10
