The Cefx 12th scale is another car to look at. It is a T-bar car, which was mentioned earlier. You can also get different length T-bars to further dial in traction or steering depending on track conditions. The "Japan Spec" car is made to run on asphalt. There also is a version made for Brushless applications.
