The RC12L4 is a good starting kit. You can also get the Hot Bodies
conversion kit for it. It makes it into a Hammer 12 which is what
Atsushi Hara Drives. Similar to the CRC Carpet Knife.
The CRC Carpet Knife is a also good. They just came out with a
new version of their 3.2 Bloody Knife called the 3.2R.
The CRC along with the Hammer Conversion are the only ones
that have the 4 batteries together down the middle instead
of having to saddle them like you do with every other kit.
You can also get the Hammer Conversion kit if you have an Rc12L3.
Yokomo has their worlds edition, but it is pretty old now.
Trinity has the Reflex 12 which is nice, but I hear breaks easy
if your not as experienced in driving 12th.
I also hear that the CEFX is nice. All these cars along with the
associated ones use a T suspension. The Hammer and the Carpet
Knife use a Pivot with springs. Go to TeamCRC.com and check out
the Carpet Knife 3.2R. I have it and is really working good for me.
