DB1020R is a longer lower pod plate designed for the DB12RR. When put on the DB12R it would lengthen the wheelbase but the DB12RR has a shorter chassis plate so the overall wheelbase stays the same.

Part# DB1030R The difference between this part and the original is that it sets the shock back on the top pod it changes the leverage of the shock. I helps make the car rotate better.

Whats a nice feature on the DB12RR and the new Copper Head12 car is you can position the shock mount forward or back. It changes leverage on the pod and how much traction or less traction you want. So if you want more traction move the mount forward and if you want less traction move it to the rear.

Part# DB1020R This is different than the original this lengthens the car some it basically keeps the car more stable and I think a longer wheel base helps the car carry more corner speed I have to ask Jason on this.

Part# DB1041R this part is for the DB12RR car its pretty much like the original but its made for the DB12RR

Part#DB1053R Is the pod brace for the DB12RR car on this car the pod is a little wider to allow more room for brushless motors.

As for 1c lipo's there's many alot of people are using Thunder Power, Trinity just to name a few.

Hope this helps
Mike

Are the top & lower rear pod plates wider as well, to accommodate for the RED highlighted portion above?

I do not mind paying more for the car . But I have a problem with having to buy two front ends with my kit, when I know I'm not going to use the Associated style front end. I'm confident many others agree with me .

Yes that is clear . So I'm a die hard and not the average beginner, why do I have to buy the old front end when I'm willing to pay a little more for a kit with the new front end?

I will have 2 options for the car, with the strut front end or our front end. The one with our front end will be more expensive as it cost more to produce. The option is there though. No worries.

We do have different plates for the car. THe standard ones are 1.5mm fiberglass, then we have 1.5mm c/f and 1.2mm c/f
Under what conditions would one change the flex plates?

If you want more steering for a real tight track, the carbon fiber ones are a little stiffer and give you the steering if you need it.

If you need any help with your cars when you get them let me know. I usually try to make it out to the gate once a month or so, we'll get you dialed in out there.
