the carbon fiber plates sounds good indeed. I can only find the thin plates in the BMI store is this correct?
What thicknes do they come in? The standard flexplate was 2mm, how thick are the thin carbon ones?

By the way, last week i won the third indoor race at my club
13.5t 2s lipo
(second race i attended with the DB10RR)

What's the size of your track? I was at around 56mm on large 16x30m track and around 48mm on small and twisty 8x25m track. It's always safer to start with something a bit smaller and then watch your temperature, I try to keep it around 65C

raced on the same track yesterday due to grip already laid down from the 12th national

ran the motor from 55.4 to 63.3mmpr but was no were near as quick as driver using a Roche 17.5/2s/Lrp esc and his car could rip. He was on 55.9mmpr all day. Borrowed one of his lipo's but my motor was quicker on mine on the bench

Had to wait for the fronts to come in, about one and half laps before they did. Very good balance on the car though. Qualified 6th for the A but iffy 1st lap saw me down in 10th from which I didn't recover Had no grip roll but saw lots of others suffer with it

meeting next week on medium grip carpet so plan to start as above but with addy on the fronts

Shipping international always is more expensive especially with larger parts as bodies. I have ordered bodies from overseas in the past and that had been nearly twice the cost what you had to pay.

The bodies are sold by Carson. I donīt know if there is a distribution for Carson in the UK.
