Many cool features in testlogger.info

I've been running preproduction car for quite long time and have experience of 13.5T blinky with GT body and 3.5 boosted & 6.5 blinky mod with LMP body.

Inline is the way to go, faster corner speeds and better speed out of the corner!
That is a sweet website thanks!!!

Sorry but we are not dodging your question. We are making racing car so we must to limit many thing to design. If we make long hole for servo mount it will increase weight and many people can not make the centering of servo mounting perfectly. Also each hit when you are driving will make move the servo.

I currently have an Associated 12R5.2, which is an older design now. What advantages would the Destiny have over it, particularly for asphalt racing (Mod)?

Are parts from other brands compatible (e.g. springs, height adaptors etc)?

The destiny is a very buttoned down and stable car in stock form. I haven't ran it in mod yet but I can tell from how it drives in 17.5 that it can easily take the power. I plan on testing it in 6.5 soon. It's very stable yet easy to tune to make it turn very well.

Does anyone know where i can get a pair or 2 of the sidelinks ? I still haven't found 1 ( not 1 ) website that carries parts for this car and its kind of disappointing. I know i can get front end parts at many different places but thats all i can find. Thanks

These are not the kit links for the VD-12.

I finished 4th in Mod 1/12th at ROAR Carpet Nationals this past weekend, held at 360v2 in NYC. I am working to get an actual pdf setup sheet along with some pictures of my car, but here is a brief outline of my setup:

- VD-12 with 2.3mm alu chassis (same dimensions as stock) and hi-mod carbon pod
- JFT A32 fronts, A30 rears
- 5 degrees reactive caster, 5 degrees static caster
- -0.3 degrees camber
- 0.5mm front droop ORH
- AE .020 front springs, AE Olive side springs, Destiny Yellow center spring
- Center shock has AE 500 CST
- Damper tubes have Speed Merchant heavy (feels very thick, like 30k+)
- Rear width 172mm
- Protoform AMR

The car would have been faster if I ran AE .018 front springs and lighter tube lube with stiffer side springs, but I frankly couldn't drive the car consistently with that setup for eight minutes. As such, I went back to stiffer front springs to calm the car down a bit so I wasn't sending it thru the chicane every lap.

I still have some work to do to be on-pace with the likes of Donny, Keven, and Ray, but let's be honest - that is on me and not the car.

Good run Chris, have you been able to try linear tweak springs with mod? I have had good luck with them on another car of mine, just haven't put them on the destiny yet.

I have used linear side springs on some of my previous cars (CEFX, primarily), but not on the Destiny. What did you feel they did/offered that the normal side spring didn't? Also, was this on black CRC carpet?

I can run heavier side springs without making it too hard to drive. That is on high grip grey, my home track is the home of the Canadian Nationals.

Good to know - I will have to give them a try. Thanks for the idea.

Here is the setup I ran at the Canadian Nats this past weekend. Finished 3rd behind Trandell and Wynn. Went up a gear in the main and felt it fade off too early.
