Where can I see the tall lipo mounting kit? I don't see it on the webshop.

And another question - when is the new brushless pod going to be included in the kit?

We are investigating the World GT class around here and considering going for it. We will be running on asphalt, as we lost our permanent track we will be most likely back to parking lots. The main idea is that it has to be faster than 13.5+5cell TC and slower than 1/10 nitro TC. Can 10.5T+4cell be compared to 13.5+lipo?

The brushless pod is being included in all of the recent kits.

Oh, that's great! I probably misunderstood as I see in the shop DB10R chasis and DB10RR conversion kit seperately.

You are correct, how they are seperated. But I am 99.9% sure that the new DB10r kits are coming with the updated pods, longer flex plates, and shorter diff hub. Im sure Jason will chime in if I am wrong.

Default Gearing??

Jason, I thought I read earlier in this thread that you were recommending a 52 mm rollout for 2.2 inch tires, 13.5, and 4 cells.

When I raced the car for the first time last Sunday I found that I was so far off the pace that I needed to gear up.

I went all the way to a 68mm rollout before I was even competitive.
Does this sound normal?

Also is gluing the sidewalls of the fronts the only way to reduce traction rolls?

Other than these 2 small issues I finished third in the A-main behind 2 pro's driving CRC's with 7.4 lipo's on the cars maiden voyage with out of the box setup.

Thanks

In the UK stock is 10.5 we roll out at 58-60mm so I think you are about right for 13.5

I geared mine at a 65mm rollout with a 13.5 and the car was fast. I would check your speedo settings. It will be difficult to match the punch of a car running 7.4 volt lipo just due to the fact that it is more voltage and a higher torque motor.

On carpet i never run my tires taller than 2.100. If the traction is high,hack down those tires. This will cure the traction roll issues.

I finally got back out to run my 10r this weekend. I want to say thanks to Jason for helping me out with my pod issues as it seems that was what my problem was. The car was back to it great handling self, I was just down on power a little bit to the other guys. I really enjoy driving this car, it really a relaxing drive.

Jason, just wanted to let you know that I finally got to run the car and it worked very well on carpet using Johnny Careys setup, I managed to TQ the WGT at the WCIC races this weekend and if not for a tire dopping error on my part in the final the car was dead on for another great run.

Nice car, easy to drive, easy to work on. As a matter of fact tire wear was exceptional and even all around all weekend, so no tire truing issues, and was actually kind of boring to have as no tweak settings where required either.

Thats good to hear-

What I have found with that setup, is that the car will get faster as the day goes on and traction goes up. Just silly good.

Does the BMI weighted LiPo tray fit the SMC single cell LiPo?

It does fit in the tray but the battery hold down will need to be spaced up. I will be releasing an optional tall battery holddown for the SMC pack soon but you can do it if you space the top plate up. The pack fits the tray though

Questions??

Just a quick question does anyone know if the IRS left rear hub on the DB10R is balanced the same and would the RC10R5 axle?
