Thanks Jason, I think I may try around 76mm to start since my track is a little smaller and work from there.

Hopefully we will start hearing more results soon from these cars. Most of the guys i have spoken to have not run them yet. Alot of tracks are not running them due to lack of rules for the class. Its too hard to set rules when you have so many variances between the cars.People are not sure what to buy but that will only last for a short while. Hopefully we will see the class start running more regularly after the IIC.

I intend to push this class strong at seasons end as people prep for next season. I will take what is learned at the previously mentioned "big races" to help develope rules and guidelines for the class here localy.

By the way Jason, do I have a 10R on the way?

Quinton,

I am making the last parts that i need to start shipping again. It will go out this week bro


Mark,

You can run any lipo pack with minor shimming of the battery locator deck in the center of the car. If you shim them up 1mm you can now fit the tallest lipo stick pack. The lower ones do not require any shimming. If you want the benefits of the saddle pack, you can run that also. We have the only car i have seen so far that can literally fit any pack. We found the saddle pack to handle the best of them all but what you decide to run is completely up to the end user.

Thumbs up

I finally got to run my DB10R yesterday. All I can say is, WOW this thing is a blast. I didn't balance it or anything(wanted to hit the track NOW), but the car ran great. Very smooth and precise, I can't wait to get it dialed in and really let it loose. Thanks, J for a great car.

Hey Joe,

Thanks for choosing our products buddy. You can get any parts you need from Sean Farmer. He is always out there at adrenaline racing and supporting our products. He is a local dealer for us.

I usually run 2x pink front and rear tires on decent traction tracks and pink all around for low bite.

Futaba 9602 servo is the best bang for the buck and work excellent.

Hi guys. I have decided to a 10R and wanted to ask advice about a base setup. Regular stuff like ride height, springs, shock oil, etc. Also, which b'shell is best to start with? Lastly, whats a good start gearing wise for either a 9 or 10 turn motor? Car will be used on a large outdoor track. Thanks guys, Chris.

The box setup works really well on the car for alot of track conditions. I like the corvette body but if you want to try a body out, protoforms new LMP body is pretty crazy looking. I havent run a brushed motor in a while but i would start at around a 38mm rollout(4 cell).
