V12 and Uga- The WGT car I ran at the Birds had different rear suspension geometry. The new WGT will certainly have the new suspension for the rear plus a few changes to the chassis and layout. I don't think I can divulge anymore info, so I'll defer to Jason.

Given that the current DB12RR and DB10R both use the same suspension parts except for the shock and shock mount...will there be a change in the suspension geometry for the DB12 as well?

[QUOTE= It is hard at this time as the market of 1/12th seems to be going towards lower quality and less expensive. I dont want to take that route. I want to keep increasing quality and try to keep the same price. QUOTE]

good to hear that the new bmi will be as good as the last one
ive seen guys with the new 12th's from other brands having alot of problems with both the front ends getting sloppy after 25 runs and lower quality carbon fibre delaminating
only problem i have with a new bmi is that i dont wanna sell the 2 i already have -there goes my whole fleet downsizing attempt

The only planned change to the DB-12RR's suspension geometry is going to be within the flex plates. Of course, we have been entertaining a new front end and depending on whether we release it or not there will be an obvious change. We have planned on making the new front end with the same spacing as the AE front end so that it can be used on all generations of the DB-12.

However, at this time there isn't a definite front end change.

I was, but I was running a different car.. Jason and I have discussed a bunch of ideas, many of which are revolutionary. However, with the revolution comes revolt!! LOL!! Some of the concepts would just be too expensive to mass produce. Couple that with the fact that many of the newer kits being released by various companies have a lower retail price (due largely to cheaper components) and it is a losing proposition.

The new car definitely rotates better in higher traction and that had been the only achilles heel... Jason got it right now and we are working on making it better..

Yeah I thought so...You were running the S120 weren't you? I'm pretty sure we met that year and discussed RS setups. I was pitting over with Tag and crew.

LOL...I had a great time and hope to be able to go back again soon. Vegas makes more sense though for me because the airfare from Hawaii is much lower as well as the hotel costs. So far I have enough miles for one way of the airfare to Vegas for this year So that will make it much easier. I hope to go with more spending money this year so I'm constantly worried about having enough to eat and buy tires

Is it possible to have less chassis cutouts? I can't get my electronics and lead to stick well with double sided tape on the DB10RR chassis as there is not much carbon at the back. I drive 2s saddlepack by the way. Any have a good trick to let the electronics stick better?
