Blackbird
Thanks for the pictures. Well thatīs the first pictures I see showing saddlepack Lipos at the DB10R. The Mulsanne is very nice also.
Currently we run Group-C shell but I think I have to buy that Mulsanne.

What me wonders is the position of the receiver. I think Jason says using the ESC and receiver at the rear behind the batteries, even with saddlepack. Is there a reason why you did mount the receiver in front of the saddlepacks?

Actually I thought you canīt mount the saddlepack Lipos (especially that Intellect type) that way as you have them. I thought the inner connectors for connecting the cells would interfere with the batteryplate.

Uga
why do you think you canīt reverse the position of the cells so the connectors are to the rear? I think the batteryplate canīt interfere, but maybe the centershock?
But I have to say Blackbirds DB10R is an older version than mine, of course not completely but in some small details itīs different. If you donīt know you wonīt see but I think the batteryplate and centershockposition looks a little different on mine.
I hope I can get those Intellect packs soon so I could try that.

Hi V12, reason I mounted rec in front of lipos .1 the rec is a bit of a chunky monkey ( it could fit in rear but a tight fit ) keeping the space in rear either side of esc for any ballast I may need to add. 2 only means one wire running back along chassis to esc.

OK I see your point. Thanks.
What is the weight of your DB10R raceready? Are you at 1000g?
I think should be much lighter than mine.

Race ready the chassis as seen weighs 960gm,thats with full size BSR tyres (I cant bear to true them down). With the mulsanne body on, which does have quite a few coats of paint , total weight is 1060gm.

Sorry, it's really the shock which was getting in the way of connectors and not the battery plate. I am using the BMI lipo tray, which has only 1 mounting option.

Ah OK, so the Lipos sits higher because of the tray.
I will use the Lipo directly on the chassis maybe this mkaes a difference then.

If you have excess weight then that will really make difference, the lipo tray weighs around 50g

One thing I have to look for at my car is tirewear at the front.
At the race last weekend I had tirewear what looks if I was running not enough camber front. The outside of the tires did wear a lot more than the inside.
I think there could be different reasons:

the track was absolutely highspeed and highgrip
car was pusing, maybe body had not enough downforce front
weight balance not perfect, but canīt change this at the moment
steering geometry is not perfect

I really think all the reasons are true partly but maybe I have to look for steering geometry.

Uga
which position for the steering rods are you using?
The same as the one with my and Blackbirds car (steering rods in front of servosaver) or the one Jason has on his car (steering rods behind servosaver)?
Maybe you tried both also.

Well I just went to pick up the bodies for my DB10R for IIC Ended up with the Parma DB9, WOW what a nice looking body. The pics on the internet just don't do it justice. I don't know what all the fuss is...for a race body it is pretty damn close in scale appearance too. Not Tamiya scale nice but one has to remember it is a Race body not a scale body. Even then the scale likeness is pretty good. Can't wait till I see it all painted up in my colors

I've got my new SMC 4900mah pack in my DB10R now. If you use the the weighted tray to get your car up to weight then you'll need to change how the ball stud mounts. If you don't use the tray it'll clear just fine. I found with the tray if you just switch to the CRC threaded ball and use a button head screw instead of a nut then it fits very nicely.

Losi 6009 female ballstud as alternative to the CRC part also works very well. Made from steel and doesnīt wear or break.

I'll have to look into those, thanks I haven't had problems with the CRC ones breaking once I figured out to use a longer screw. You need to use one that goes all the way through the collar of the ball and well up into the ball itself.
