Thanks Jason.

To be honest I need another car like I need a hole in the head, but I'm just so impressed with your customer service I have to get one of your rides.

Reading some of the boards for other Pro-10 cars I am really excited to see what happens when a DB10R runs head to head with the other cars. I know the DB10R will not push with a 10.5 on asphalt or carpet with the kit setup

Hey Adrian,

What's your tire combo for Carpet?
What type of dampener lube do you use?
Tire Diameters? F/R.

Thanks!

Purple front and double pink rears seems a good place to start. A synthetic rear tire like white compound would be good if you are running 17.5 or 13.5 to free up the car.

We are running Sure Lube #4 in the 12R and 10R.

If the grip is high the key to not traction rolling on carpet is small tires...just like in foam sedan and 1/12th.

There are two rim diameters. Jaco, GRP and RC For Less use small rims and BSR uses a big rim. For carpet with Jaco try starting at 2.125". That is actually a decent amount of foam and you may need to go smaller if the grip is high. For BSR 2.25" give your the same amount of foam on the rim and once again if the grip is high smaller might be better. BSR's are worn out at 2.1"...not sure about Jaco size wheels as I have not run them real far down yet....we have been running on asphalt where you can run them bigger.

what's a good size to start with for bsr and jaco foam on asphalt? does it matter what motor you run? i'll be using a 10.5t brushless.

For low to medium bite asphalt, we ran 2.250 front and rear. For high bite asphalt we ran them at 2.100 front and rear.

Are you running 10.5 with 4 cell? I liked that the best when we were testing. You can pretty much run full throttle the whole track and just concentrate on good lines. These cars are too much fun.

Are pinks all around the best tires for low bite asphalt?

Thanks, who has 2x pink? I was looking at Jaco and all I see are pink. I will be running on low-med bite asphalt.

What kind of gearing do you run with this combo? I'm guessing it would be 64 pitch gears but would 48 pitch be better on a parking lot? That's where i'm running at the moment since the nearest local track is about an hour away! Speaking of and going off-topic.... anyone successfully start up a club at a local parking lot/public use land?

If i remember correctly, i was rolled out at 65mm. With a 13.5 i was geared at an 80mm rollout

These cars will really take off with parking lot racing. They handle the somewhat bumpy surfaces about as good as a TC but they handle MUCH better. The initial purchase and cost of upkeep are much less also than TC. I think it will give a nice addition to existing TC die hards and an alternative to people who just cant afford TC anymore.
