i have a question and would like your opinion. how do you think this car will handle on a bumpy indoor carpet track? will the front end help or be more of a pain?

thanks in advance for your input

about 70% done on mine! from this build I have a strong feeling that the front end will play the major roll when it comes to carpet and aSSpalt . Will upload some pics soon

Haha. you ready?!?!? well with some small parts and some greases the shipping was around $59.00!!! I've learn to accept these kind of prices with this hobby plus its a Yokomo!!! To have it in the US is rare because of the part issue if you crash or something wears out. hey if you like I am selling my old rc12r5 converted to 5.1 rc12r5 12r5

R12 released last 31th at Japanese market, 22445 JPY.

mail to: osaka[at]rc-champ.co.jp
http://www.rc-champ.co.jp/

RC House Champ

the price will be around 25000JPY)
+81-42-549-1553
mail to: hot1458[at]rc-house-champ.com
http://www.rc-house-champ.com/

Crest Speed way
My home track and Japanese most exciting course for 1/12th, English maybe dose
not be comprehended, but if I were there at that time, i will reply your mail
by English. R12 kit price is 25480JPY including jananese consumer tax)
Naoto.M practiced yesterday at this track for testing new sanwa servo)
Phone: +81-270-75-5933
mail to: info[at]crestspeedway.net
http://crestspeedway.net/



anyway,
I built it with 10days or so. I think this R12 is roughly excellent car.
For example, all of carbon materials and alloy parts are highly precised.
However, I found this car have some of problems. They are mostly
caused by composite material.

The yokomo rears mount about half way down, not at the end like all the other wheels, fronts are the same as other by the looks of things I haven't measured the offset on my fronts yet to make 100% sure.

Here's a picture from redrc standard wheel on the left and yokomo on the right. Only issue vie got now is where to get the foam donuts on there own from ? I ordered a few yokomo ones to hold me over as that's all I could find so far.



Other side

Ok cool that makes sense, so you can only purchase yokomo tires from now on..

Can kinda to a degree live with that
