Hey Guys,

I have an original DB12 with the fiberglass L-plates, was thinking of upgrading to newer specs for a spare car, What do You suggest for new parts, or is it kinda outdated compared to My CRC genXL, Have mostly run T-bar cars, had to go to link cars for 1s lipo, just thought instead of hanging on the wall, I could try the BMI for shits and giggles.

Default back on the track

Just got my DB12r back on the track after a long time sitting in a box.

Quick question, I cant really remember how these used to drive, but should I have brakes?

I apply brakes, but there is no positive braking.. just no fwd.

Is this something with the direct drive? or should my esc motor be able to stop this car? I have set the esc .. full brake, but nothing seems effective.

I just got one of these back on the track recently as well. But to answer your question, you don't need brakes...so don't worry about a "lack" of them. Brakes are for TC, where the effect is at all 4 corners.... you don't want brakes on the rear tires only. If you do dial in some brakes, make it very minimal, if at all.
