I raced 12th scale in SOCAL with Rick Hohwart of Associated in the days of the rc12i. To this day (26 yrs ago Holy crap!!!) I have never expierienced club and national level racing better than that. 12th scales have unbelievable grip on asphalt and all we raced on nothing but asphalt from The old Briggs Cunningham auto museum in Costa Mesa Ca. to the Ranch pit shop In Pomona and TQ hobbies in Harbor city near San Pedro. Very proud to be a part of all that.
But I am now In Phoenix Az. and we have a rebuilt asphalt track here that is awesome and as this wave continues we have a place to race.
In my opinion I 12th scale is so much fun compared to touring I dont even remember if we knew what rollout was we just asked what are you geared? and went from there. Everthing is so critical in touring car. In 12th I check tweek sauce the tires and have fun With foam tire tech advancing as much in 25 years traction is not a problem. Of course Im making it simplistic but compared to touring it is.
And the price for everything from kits to parts and tires it is really fun to me you can't beat it.
We still got a little time before it gets bigger here in Phoenix but if it keeps going and guys like you get hooked the future for asphalt 12th looks bright!
RACE ON MY 12TH SCALE BROTHAS!!
