Jason - when will the new springs be available in your webshop? Do you have a distributor in Europe or shall I order direct?

I will have the springs ready by the end of this month. I do not have many distributors at this time overseas. I will have them on the webstore immediatley following the completion.

BTW,any luck on your project you were working on?
I've got a lot of it planned out in my head...just haven't drawn it up in Solid Works yet. Just went through a large office relocation at work so I've been rather tired when I get home and haven't worked on it. The new web site is nearly finished now though

most are running with the server angled. angled get you more ackerman, so I guess that is more agressive. usually on carpet you would run it flat to calm the car down. but shef's setup for snowbirds is on an angle as well.

depending upon what servo you run your choices are limited too. w/ the BMI servo mounts and the Futaba 9650 the wiring harness hits the mount when mounting flat (so i just double stick it). if you decide to use a JR micro 3650 then the BMI servo drill patterns won't match up either.

This is a tricky question to answer. If the servo is mounted correctly in both applications, a flat servo will calm the car down. When i mount the servo flat i use the medium ball studs on the steering blocks to make the turnbuckles level when looking at the car from the front and i place the servo so when looking at it from the top, the turnbuckles are dead straight. This adds a slight bit of bump toe in to calm the car down on corner entry and with the turbuckles being straight when looking from the top,eliminates most all of the ackerman to keep it smooth throughout the corner.

Angled servo will eliminate all bumpsteer for more aggressive turn in and also has a little more ackerman which will give more on power steering. I like the car to be a bit more mellow on carpet due to the high bite. It allows me to keep my corner speed without needing to think too hard. In the hands of a real good driver like schreffler, the angled servo is the way to go. The flat servo will feel more smooth and easier to drive for the average guy.

Thumbs up

Jason, do you have any dealer here in Jersey or you're just
an online store? I'm thinking of going into 1/12 scale and so far
I've looked at the CRC Gen-X here locally. I would be interested
in your car as well, hoping to see one at a hobby shop here.
B.T.W., your car DB12R is a really cool name.
It reminds me of the Aston Martin DB12 Vanquish!

I do have some hobby stores up that way carrying our products. Im sure someone else local to the area can help you. I know 360 raceway on long island,NYC hobbies,and brownies hobbies carry our products but i cant remember who in jersey.

Thanks for the props on the name. It is actually named after my favorite motorycle i have ever had. A Bimota db9. The Aston Martin db12 is also worth naming after.
