BMI DB12 close to leaving prototype stage


The prototype 1/12th scale car from BMI, the DB12, is nearing the final stages of its prototype phase and if everything goes according to plan in its final test it should be going into production in the very near future. I will let the designer himself give you the low down on this new chassis.

The new prototype will have newly redesigned pods and slightly altered suspension. The new rear suspension has proved itself to give the progressive spring tension of a T bar when twisted and only relies on the center shock for compression. Another high point of this car is its battery placement. It is adjustable and offers a more rearward battery position of any car on the market for the most amount of steering possible and allows you to move them forward also for a more toned down feel. I am working with IRS with this kit and will be including their new nickle teflon coated shock, axle, battery locator plates and 7075 aluminum hard coated front and rear pivot balls. I will be including boca bearings in the kit also.
