They are all 1/12th electric. and yes there were quite a few 917s. The 917s are from Delta Plastik,and the others are a mix of Delta Plastik,Frewer,and Team Blue Groove. Of course the 956s and Toyotas are from Tamiya. I imported all of these for our racers hee in Japan.

Interesting...looked like a little nitro head there in the back window instead of a normal engine...that's why I thought they might be nitro.

Just a fun get together.
A 2cell lipo (for 1/18th cars) with 380 motor would be indeed a great class, if it's on a small to medium size technical circuit.
And tamiya is releasing a sport tuned 380 motor, that's even better for speed

That is the top of a 917 motor printed out and attached to the inside of the body.Something like this picture.

last thursday i've tested my RM-01 with the front brace between the front suspension and this gave me the feeling that the car was more controlable and more consistant then without the brace.
It really felt great, even with the standard 380 motor but with a 1/18th 2-cell lipo i was able to compete with the bigger F104 cars.
Lot's of fun to drive this car

Back to your question about the carbon chassis. This weekend a guy showed up with a full option RM-01,including the new carbon chassis pieces.
To make along story short,his car with carbon is 150 grams lighther than mine with the FRP chassis. Weight was one reason to get carbon that I forgot to tell you about. just one other thing to think about if you need your car to go on a diet.
The guy with the full option RM-01 has spent much more money than it would have cost to get a serious chassis to begin with.His car is light now like a more serious car but cost a whole third more than if he would have went with CRC/and R5 or just about any other car that has the parts Tamiya is selling as options.

Glad to hear the strut helped you a little,its cheap and easy to install.

If I could find somewhere to race it I'd love to hop mine up and try it in a 12th open class....tcs rules keep it too slow for me

Do you guys know of any popular 12th tracks in the North East?

Complete Jaco rear wheels

For asphalt I use the Tamiya wheels, where weight isn't such an issue

Jaco Yellow, or White, have similar grip to Tamiya Kit rear
