As soon as I get my DB10R back and make sure both cars are cleaned up I will have my DB12RR and DB10R available for sale. I don't need to keep those around now that I have both of the Copperheads

Can't wait to try that change. And it goes right under the arm. Thanks Jason.

Hi Jason!



There is "any" chance for your front end to 12R5.1 ?



Thank you!
Michal

At this time there is no plans. Originally, i was going to but with it being in such high demand for our car, i want to make sure i can keep up and support my customers. If i get things to where i can fully support the front ends for our car without any problems, i will look into making it for other cars. Sorry for the inconvenience.

That's what I did some four weeks ago on both of my 12r5is. Not very difficult to mount the front end. Be sure to order the 1.8 mm flex plates too.

Well, my practice from Thursday paid off today.

Only change I made from Thursday was going to the 1.8 flex plates in the front, in the soft position, replacing my stock 1.5's that were pretty abused and fatigued to the point that I had a real tough time getting ride height with 42mm front tires. The 1.8's settled after the first 2 runs today, needing a little adjustment between rounds to bring the front ride height back up, and then held solid the rest of the day, no issues and a ride height close enough to my start setting that tire wear would account for the difference.

Speaking of tire wear, I saw right at 1mm on the day, front and rear, rotating the tires only once, after the second qualifier, and the tires are even left to right.

The car was predictable with a very slight high speed push and only a brief hint at double steer mid-sweeper, neutral off-power, and I'm pretty happy with the steering and stability at corner exit.

That said, the car was definitely better than I am with it at the moment. We didn't have a bad turnout today, but not huge either, 8 guys running boosted 10.5 today, which was split into 2 mains, but I made the cut to start last in the A And turned nearly double the amount of laps on the day than I was able to manage last week with the spin-o-matic car I had last week.

So again, for the guys that gave me suggestions to try, thank you, the car is good enough to make me learn to drive it mistake free, and then worry about finding the extra 3-5 tenths of lap time I'm still lacking.

Unfortunately, I didn't finish the A-main due to an exploded rear axle bearing, but I'm still grinning from having such a fun car to wheel, and seeing improvement each time on the track, bot from the car and myself.

Thanks again guys.

I won't be able to race due to work for a month, but I do have one question.

When I get overly aggressive on steering and throttle, typically on a 180 turn, I'm sometimes lifting the inside rear tire and diffing out, making for a somewhat adventurous corner exit. I learned to open my line up and take smoother arcs around the track, but is this a setup issue, or driving issue?

I would suspect a set up issue, though you may be just snapping the car into the turn too hard. I would try gray rears, or if you're not gluing your rears, you could try that. A firmer front may also help. If it's fairly extreme you may need a firmer side spring, but before you go that far, use heavier spooge in the dampers, which should also help with the double steer. Congrats and good luck.

Yes I would try heavier damper spooge first....sounds like there's too chassis movement.
