Got it. Thanks.

Default D12

Damon,
How does the D12 do in 19t and modified? Because if i'm right Terry R said that t-plate cars handle the speed better than the piviot ball cars in the 19t and modified classes.

What's up Max? Long time, no see! Not to speak for Damon, but the T-bar cars tend to be stiffer in the back, allowing for higher speed cornering. Damon and I were messing around with different weight oils in the dampers. We put some 30,000 weight diff lube in them and the rear feels just like a t-bar. The D-12 will have no problems with 19t or mod.

P.S.- When we gonna see you at Barstools?

I've been really busy with the MARS sreies. ya know, Offroad!! Last race was in Vicksburg. got TQ in Stock Buggy. As for onroad goes. I've took my whole T2 apart and havent found what has made it be out of tweak all the time. I'm gonna look at the bulkheads today. Thats what I think I bent. Are you goin to Cleveland this year? and if so, what classes? I'm gonna wait till Fred puts some ozite down before I come back to barstools. Thats a good idea making the car stiffer that way it doesen't roll as much.
LMK if you need any bodies painted!!

Max,

Jason is right the D12 is good in 19 turn. I only got to run my car once last year before they closed the track, but it was pretty good.

As for t-bar vs. link cars, that debate will probably go on forever. Each person has their favorite. The t-bar car is good on smooth tracks but is more likely to break. Link cars are better on bumpy tracks and very durable(no t-bar to break). Both cars are winners.

Link cars 1-2-3 1/12th mod at Cleveland
T-bar won snowbirds and nats on carpet
both cars in A-main at the worlds.

So, yeah the D12 will work for what you need.

Larry

Max- Nobody has been running 1/12 at Barstools, anyway. We're having a good time running TC, though. Glad to see you're doing well with the MARS races. And yes...I'm Cleveland bound come Thanksgiving.

Larry- Thanks for clearing that up. Seems to be more of a personal preferance than anything else.

See ya'll soon!

Max: Sounds like you have been haveing fun this summer with some Diirrt! Youre not missing much action as far as indoor onroad goes here bud.. Barstools seems to help pass the time, but damn I cannot wait much longer for a good track to open... Ive heard a couple things through the grapevine but nothing set in stone.. As far as T-bar and Pivot ball cars, I would think that pretty much what Oppie said is right on.. As far as the D12, I think it has a different reaction than a pivot ball and a T-bar car because its not a pivot ball or T-bar car. There is also a center spring wich acctually acts like a small shock.. Didnt you see me rippin on Terry R the first time out with the kit?

Oppie: I got the hook up for you to win at Cleveland

Ran the XLR8 this weekend with a stock for the first time in a loooong time, and it was insane!! Got a good mote off of my man Denny and that was it.. fastest car on the track no doubt, and there were 3 xrays that are always fast!

I guess your right, you were beating Terry R. The D12 does seem like a pretty kool car. but i guess i'll stick with my CRC car!!! Unless you got a better deal for me.

I hope Bill get his D12 this week. Can't wait to see it. Maybe I can convince him to let me test it out. I do love my 12L4. It is working great. But the D12 reall looks good Damon.
