Hi.
I would like to know if there is any intention by kyosho to sell the DB9 in there mini-z, because I already read in to sites that the have made the bodies to the iseries, like for example in this one
http://www.minizz.com/article797.html
If so when is it going to be available?
Thanks

You should visit a dutch-language forum called www.ggtuning.com/forum There are some ppl from the Netherlands as well. Belgium isn't that far from Holland ;)

That car look's pretty flat up front! I wonder how it's scale aerodynamics are. Look's like the blue one has the same wheels as the white Porsche 911 GT3 body did. You know, the one with silver graphics on it?

lfisminiz. Any were near 222?
I have to travel to Pittsburgh once or twice a year to PUMC; I am a kidney transplant patient from there and go very often to the Dutch Country Harrisburg, Lancaster specially, as well as Allentown and others.
My wife and I agree that the area will be the best to live when we get older. Just love it!!!!:)

WOW ok you got to admit the Aston Martin green is the bomb, but the blue looks great too. It is just screaming for some LED lights to really make it shine. no pun intended.
Do we know if these will be limited editions? I might need to get two of each. lol

Im sure the bodies will be their normal amount. Still, if you really like it, get xtras. I try to get 1 for the shelf, pretty much dont use, and get the white bodies to paint and decal for racing.

Richard, just let us know when your around.;)

Whoa! 2nd version looks cool! Reminded me of the old Esso Supra at a glance.

Hey Larry... you should put signs up on the road so the loyal Z-ists passing through the area can visit your shrine of Autoscales! :D

Maybe with some background music when they visit...

Anywho, we're always looking for new racers... would be great to race with you Eztuner!

anyone know the offsets for the DBR9??

I have one, but can't find the original ASC wheels (doh!) and the ones I thought belong with the body are too narrow - the wheels don't fill out the wheel wells...but I did find that the enzo ASC wheels fit pretty good - this true or am I nuts?

EMU
2008.11.30, 09:19 PM
I think they may be 1N/2W, or something like that... My setup is 2N/3W ;) Enzo wheels should fit well... I put the body on my pan car MR02 chassis, and it fit perfect. I think with a different front tire, it would work perfect.

better yet, anyone have repoerts on how this bodies handles? i'd love to switch to mm with a new body style but i'd prefer not to gamble on $40.

Arch - I LOVE this body...I was able to drive it much more agressively than I was my Enzo...TO me, it almost felt like my 575GTC that I drove at the ALS race last year...

Its a very very very sweet body :)

The DBR9 is a nice body. I put it on my pan car setup last night, and it drove well. I would need to change the front tires for a little more steering, but it is very stable and carries speed through the corners.

i also tried this body on my pan car chassis and had very good results... also had to change the front tires... found it to work the best on my awd...

I'm using a white body Austin Martin DBR9 on my AWD. it works with the Enzo wheel offset. This body is lighter than the Enzo body. meaning that the body is more thinner than the Enzo body I've previously used. Before using the car body, the front lip must be cut off and the side bumper parts (left/right) must be glued to the side of the car for more body rigidity since the lip was already cut off. The side bumper if glued flushed to the car body helps the car slide off from the RCP side rails. Just make sure that the side bumpers are really flushed to the car body. Also the rear defuser must also be cut off or trimmed by at least 1.5 mm. I've trimmed mine. The defuser helps the car body withstand a direct hit from the rear.

I didnt do any of those mods to mine, and it handles great. Its a little sluggish on turn-in compared to a few others Ive tried recently, but it was good on AWD and MR02. It sits on my mod MR02 right now which previosly ran a pan car shell. Ive got the WTF with 0n up front with 3w rears. There is clearance aft, but the front needs -1n or the wheels/tires are a tad exposed.

EMU
2009.01.30, 03:03 PM
I noticed the same with my Aston. I drove it for a while with 0N Kyosho wheels on the WTF, then switched to -1N ATM wheels. The wierd thing, is that I think they stick out the same as the 0N Kyosho wheels... I am thinking about removing the WTF and trying 1N instead, or even 0N.

As far as the slow turn in, what spring are you using up front? I had to go to a softer front spring compared to what I was running with the Mazda body that had much faster transitions, but less dig in the mid corner.
