Does anyone have a pic of a DB12R with a GTB system installed with the heatsink? I just bought a GTB w/lipo cutoff for my 1/10 car with a lipo pack (great idea eh? hehe). I have tried taking heatsink off and replacing it with an aluminium plate but after lifting the heaksink off, theres blue thermal paste/goo under it. I didnt want to mess with it.

Thanks,

Having the screw in but not touching will not change the flex of the flex plate. If you touch it to the chassis it will increase the tension some and will also make the flex plate more progressive

Ran the car on Tuesday night after Sunday’s race when I ran the FF’07 DB12R not ready.
This was done after the carpet had aired for 2 days and was the same layout.

Only had two runs using same motor (unskimmed) & tyre type and,

Single lap faster by 1.17s
Average lap down by 1.057s

Unbelievable the way the car corners with speed.

Only place I seemed to struggle was in the switch backs (left/right/left) were the car was to responsive. Maybe addy & or servo KO949. (Usually run a Sanwa 141)

Tried the olive spring to gain a bit more rear end.
Car seemed to be skipping a lot under power on the rear.

Body: Hot Bodies Ferrari (used as I like it and didn’t have a Parma ready)
Tire Compounds: BRM Purple/Grey = f 44mm r52mm
CS High Grip Tyre Additive : Full front & Rear (like to do full front to help keep tyre wear even)
Reactive Caster: 10* Block
Caster: Middle
Camber: set to run foams square
Ride Height: 3.5mm
Toe: zero
Front Track: no shims on axles
Front Spring: .020”
Front Preload/Droop: No Preload/very little
King Pin Damping: none (don’t like to do it)
Servo Mounting: Angled
Shock Length/Pod Droop: 2.6” (66mm)/.060 (1.5mm)
Shock Angle: Med IRS ball stud on AE Ant-Shock mount
Shock Spring: AE gold / AE Olive
Shock Oil: 35wt
Side Damper Oil: 100wt shock oil (no heavier oils)
Flex Plates: .070”
Flex plate preload screws: Not installed
Rear Body Mounts: To the rear
Rear Track: 172mm

Jason's been back to me and I need to try thicker lube in damper tubes. Going to use corally medium damper fluid as suggested by Jason.

see attachment
top heat = drivers best heat that made the A final & won the event
DB12R = 2nd run with car
heat 4 = best run with FF'07

Track Layout
That is really awesome buddy. I'm glad to hear that you are comfortable with the car in such a short amount of time. If i can help you in any way, please feel free to ask.

When you get the car randy, you need to talk to it nicely and make it feel nice. That car is in shock from how bad i spanked it. It needs to be shown that it can be driven fast.

Hmm, I blew the rotor on my 5.5 before the main and with an 8.5 (5800) I managed to make an inside pass on you in the infield and drive away for a few laps. Then you got yourself straightend out, started making fast laps and reeled me in. Even then your fast lap was a 11.0 (w/ a 5.5) and mine was a 11.1 (w/ a 8.5).

All I can say is....REMATCH in 2 weeks sucka!
