Thicker material means more steering. The thin c/f seems to be the best starting point for both the 12RRand the 10R.

I run the same combo on medium size carpet track at around 57mm rollout, temp is 55-60C after a 6 min run.

Who is running the new carbon flexplates already?
For what conditiones are the new thick CK plates designed? Does it make sense ordering them or are you running just the thin ones? Iīm running just 2S Lipos with my DB10R regarding weight.

I'm running those. Yesterday gave it a shot - won a race. Overall it feels almost like fiberglass, except that the car feels more "precise".

Sure, i gotta run more laps (i put them in only minutes before race), but on our small technical track with tons of grip, those plates felt just perfect.

And then there is this amazing look...

I can only second that, it did feel very precise and easy to drive.

I had great time in Vilnius, battle for 2-3-4 places was really tense, haven't had that much fun in a long time, thanks for the race
