There is more that i am working on so keep your eyes open. I have been doing allot of research on weight distribution on the car along with wheelbase vs track width percentages. I am finding what is most efficient and what makes the car rotate with minimal resistance so you will have an extremely fast car that is also extremely easy to drive. The car works extremely well as it is, but i can tell you, it gets better. We also now have numerous positions for mounting your electronics and battery.

I am now messing around with a super light weight pod that is very strong, light weight and ride height adjustment is a breeze and also infinitely adjustable. I will have final pics up here soon so keep your eyes open. 1/12th and WGT is about to get interesting.

Question for Jason and the rest of you BMI pro's: could you please tell me which version DB12 it is that I have? The chassis has cut outs for NiMh cells. Also, would you happen to have an electronic copy of the manual corresponding to my car? Thanks!!!
