Need some help, I am new to 1/12 scale and picked up a DB12RR used. I just ordered the copper head and new front end conversion. Is there any where that has a tunning/ setup guide for 1/12 pan cars.
Thanks for any help,

*Correction* - the flex plates has been on the car since the intro of the DB12R.
I should have specified, my comment was directed at the 'flex plates' (pieces) on the front end. The ones for ride height....

Hey Guys I am running crc pro cuts and I am trying to center the rear axel left and right with a track width of 172. I have 1 shim on each side and the track width is about 171.8. But it isnt even from side to side do you guys just use the shims in the kit or are there different sizes. any help tips will be greatly appreciated thanks

How many shims you need on each side depends on the offset of the wheel your using. I've never used the CRC wheels so I cannot tell you how many to use; what is the measurement of each side?
