i'm interested in getting a 1:12 and race at my local club. It's an outdoor track and our rules for 1:12 are:
4 cell 3300mah batteries
8 min race
now i know completely nothing about the 1:12 cars.. (only into 1:10 eletric tc before) can someone give me some suggestions on what i should get?
what is a good car for me? I'll only race outdoor. CRC? Yokomo? or what? I saw the CRC car has that no tape battery retention system and since i really hate batttery tape, it's quite attractive to me.
Consider i'm probably going to order the car from oversea website (i'm from new zealand) what else should i order at the same time? tyres? springs? ?? Does it use normal standard servo? and is the spur/pinion gear same as the 1:10 TC?
and what gear ratio/motor combo is good for me? Remember we race 8 mins and this is what our track look like:
(a fast stock 1:10 TC's lap time is about 23-24sec)
I know it is impossible to give me the "best" choice by looking at the photo, but an approx idea would be good starting point for me.
and does the motor last longer on a 1:12 compare to the 1:10 TC?
Thanks a lot
