Is there a prob w/ the older style (the non spoked,solid)1/12
BSR rims?
I thought I remember something said but can't remember--old age is a pain

I believe they were a tad heavy compared to the current gen of rims from other mfgs. I thought I also heard that they were a bit fragile and tended to break around the bearing seats.

I personally had the best luck with the RC4Less Exotic foam on my DB12R. The only drawback is you can't use the long kingpins because the wheels are smaller diameter.

Good to know on the rim size...I had e-mailed them to ask if they used the new 38mm rim and they said they did...I was about to order some but now will rethink that.

The only issue I've had with old style BSR rims (rear) is that I couldn't put it on my truer, the adapter was too short. But no breakage or anything (because they are still sitting in my drawer )

BTW, what's the offset on BSR rear rims? Do you need the 3mm axle shims with those..?

I had the first chance to run my DB12r with the new cf flex plates Friday night, the only carpet track we had here closed and I cannot afford to make the 200mi tip to the only other carpet track in the state very often. I have to say that thay are a huge improvement, the car was a dream to drive. Now if I can ever get the nut behind the wheel to drive fast... Thanks Jason for continuing to improve your product.

I just finished my third race with my DB12RR. This car is planted. I have TQed each race with a 17.5 in a 10.5 class. Now I just need to calm down and quit wrecking early in the main. Faught from 2 laps down to end up second.
