Geppetto: we are not able to buy spareparts on a raceday here, so it doesnt make any difference to us which car we use. We have to get our sparepats in advance to the race or its finished if we brake something. With 4 cell racing I think you wont need much parts anyway.
About tires: the Jaco cost about 30% more than Corally here and are much more difficult to get, because when I need Corally I can allways order them from rccarinternational, doesnt take to long.
We are running 6 cells since I started in the mid 80īs and didnt switch to 4 cell like anyone else in Europe 3 years ago. We had some people racing 4 cell last year to get used to it for the european championship, but they went back happilly to 6 cell this season. We could smoke them racing them with our 6 cell cars, I really dont see a point in 4 cell. You should try it out, there is nothing compareble to a 6 cell 1/12th car. If you want to try it I would suggest a 14turn with gearing about 34-36mm, depends on motor and track.
First race to our national championship this weekend, whish me luck
