I've been using 5-40 screws in the body posts on my 1/12 instead of the smaller 4-40 ones that they come with. They thread right in and are much more secure. You may have to open the holes up in the chassis a little. Haven't stripped one out since going to the bigger screws.

Likewise, although I have used M3 screws (actually Corally 15mm titanium ones - I had some!) to get the same effect. No problems with losing body posts since. HTH

The DB3010R are the stock flex plates. However new carbon fiber ones are coming soon so if you don't need them right away you may want to hold off for a bit.

a question about the tweak screws. After a second time of driving my new db10r car i wanted to see what the tweak screws did. Are the tweak screws supose to go through the chasis brace without screwing them down? When i use the tweak screws i can't screw them in the carbon chasis brace as the hole is too big. I can only screw them in the flexplate? Is it suppose to be like that?

I think those holes are ment only for screwdriver. You only have to remove the front two screws, which holds the plates to access them.

ok thanks, i thought i had to screw them through the chassis brace to let them touch te flexplate. i already wonderd what that hole was in the flexplate but i understand now, screw the set screw through the flexplate and then let it touch the chasis.

The hole is larger on the brace so you can fit an allen wrench through there to adjust the tweak screws. The tweak screws thread into the L plates until they just touch down on the chassis. Once you get them set there you can adjust tweak pretty much like a t-bar car.

hi all,
Just picked up a DB10R and was wondering about springs.

I've gone through the thread (77 pages !) and saw one or two posts about using TC springs (which is good as I have a few of them)

Which springs are people using in terms of lb ?

The stock spring for the center shock is an AE 14.5 lb spring what has worked for me very good until now so no need for anything other. Maybe Iīm trying a slightly harder spring next time indoors. But anyway I donīt think you will need a large assortment of springs.
