Jason,
Do you have a parts list for the 12R available and how much stock of parts for that version do you have left, if any?
Thanks,
E

Jason told me the other day when I called to confirm that the old bumper part number is the new part, that's DB5401. My order should arrive any day so I can tell you how it went for me. The old bumper could sure take a hit, I know that.

I'm guessing it's the same now with the DB3020, same part number but updated part? I hope so because I ordered two when I got my CH12FE, but have not tried to use them yet.

Is there a rule of thumb for when I should dump the old pivots? I suppose all my pivots are getting a bit slopped out, but when is it time to say goodbye.

Maybe, but that doesn't make my statement untrue. What would a McLaren engineer think of the upside down strut, or of the solid rear axle for that matter? I know there are the class rules, but this is supposed to be the pinnacle class and to continue to use lesser designs is peculiar to say the least.

I do have parts in stock from the DB12R and RR. The center pivots are out of stock but i believe i have the rest of the parts for the most part.

You know you answered your own question... Yes, when they start to get sloppy it's time to go.

Fair enough. So, if I am correct, the db12rr used the old style center pivot(according to my eyeballing). Is there any of these available? I would like to get some spares for my son's car too. Or is it a dinosaur now?

E mail Marvett Brown at b5080@hotmail.com. He purchased a large quantity of my older center pivots. He will be able to help you out as i no longer have them.

Hi - quick question!

Just bought the new front end to go onto an RR

Running on medium to high grip carpet in the UK.

what would the starting set up be (do I need to raise the standoffs from stock?)

Thanks

On the RR run the stock standoffs and flex plates. I would start with the caster spacers centered on the upper arm, 1.5 degrees camber,#6 shurlube in the tube, 1mm front droop,and 3.5mm ride height. Let me know if you need more info
