I've only used the Sophia, but I certainly like it.

I've only used a DB9...it was good enough to get my qualified 5th or 6th in the B main at the IIC Though I will caution anyone who wants to use the DB9...don't cut it at the bottom cut line. Mount the body, set the ride height, check the body height, then mark a new bottom cut line even with the chassis. Mine ended up about 4mm higher than the cut line to be legal.

Do you have the fiberglass links? Are those stiffer than the carbon links?

I have been running my car with the fiberglass flex plates in the soft position with allot of success. I do however find that softer is better. I just put the 1.2mm carbon fiber plates on as they are softer than the fiberglass 1.5mm and i am going to run it next time out. The trick is to get a good balance of traction front and rear. Over springing the rear makes the front dig in very hard on corner entry. I do this for very tight tracks but for most track conditions that i have run on, softer has always been faster. I spring the front heavy enough so it doesnt roll too much and the car rotates extremely well. This has worked extremely well on both the CH10 and CH12. The CH line rotates better and has more steering than the previous DB versions. They dont require the heavy spring rate that they used to.

Hey guys,

I have been brushing through some of the threads on RC Tech and notice that it seems companies are starting to follow my placement of the electronics behind the battery in the WGT cars. I took allot of heat for that when i introduced that method with our 1st generation DB10R. It seemed that all the companies said it wouldnt work and pretty much said i was crazy for using that layout. Its a nice feeling knowing that it has become the direction everyone is going towards. I guess we are ahead of our time.

The 1.5mm carbon fiber is stiffer. The 1.2mm is softer.

So is it soft to stiff: 1.2 carbon, 1.5 fiberglass, 1.8 carbon?

I ran the 1.8 carbon yesterday. Also went from 10 to 5 blocks in the front. Huge difference. Car was very twitchy and hard to drive with the 10's. I will put the fiberglass back on until I can get a 1.2 set. Dennis only has fiberglass at the track right now. Maybe the BMI F1 racer can bring some tomorrow night

It goes 1.2mm carbon fiber,1.5mm fiber glass and 1.5 carbon fiber. I only offer 1.5mm flex plates for the front of the car. You should be fine with the fiberglass flex plates at that track. I always run them. I want to try the 1.2mm carbon fiber to see how it goes. I will be at the next race so stop by and let me check out your setup. I will get it running good for you.

Ok...I got the part number (3018) and 1.8 mixed up. I knew there was an 8 in there somewhere.
