I've noticed that most rc hobby shops are notorious for not keeping their websites up to date. So, I'm not picking on Madness, as most are guilty of the same thing.

Also, I appreciate your offer to come race the SupaStox at Madness, but, I would much rather start a class for them where I live. With the price of gas and the over 2 hour drive to get there, I don't see myself or friends from where I live ever racing there.
Amain has them in stock. The link posted above for RCM has the package details. But, you are right, it's not on their webstore.

Just got mine built and put it on the track for the first time yesterday. What a fun and fast car! Was just as fast as 4wd minis and able to hang with 17.5 sedans no problem.

Was fun to watch this cool little car in action! Was very fast down the straight.

Here, in Barcelona, we are beginning to create a new category with this car, 13.5T brushless motor and 2S saddle pack lipo batteries. What is the basic setup for carpet?

thanks!

A p*ss take on a Facebook page for the GT12 class run in the UK and what is and isn't allowed under the BRCA national rules.

Looks good. Get some bearings for the front wheels. The stock plastic spacers that come stock in place of bearings do a wonderful job of locking the wheels up at exactly the wrong time.

Yes, I mounted the front bearings and the rear ball diff!

We're starting a new 1/12 category with supastox in an indoor track near Barcelona, we are already 16 riders!

We race to a 13.5 turn 1S format on a 17 x 10m carpet track, this means close to 10 second lap times. Makes for very close racing.

Default Supastox

Have a look at ymrc.co.uk Lots of information about GT12 racing in the North of England.
We started about 9 years ago with the Mardave V12 and now the Supastox is very popular and runs along side the Mardaves.

Default what's up fellas?

Hope to get a class of these guys going here in the states.

Could use some pointers from those across the pond who've been doing this awhile. Left to our own devices, we usually screw things up the first few times.

Keep it simple, just adopt the BRCA class rules and you are good to go. 13.5t/1S blinky, only GT style bodyshells, must use kit chassis without any huge mods or cuts and your good to go.

Thanks Conrad...

Do some clubs allow or include a 2S 21.5 class as well?

A few clubs still run it in England I believe, it is slightly faster than 1S/13.5t down the straight but it was never run at any national event. If you can stick to the 1S/13.5t class as it will save any headaches but I know the 21.5t motor is a good option for buggy drivers to come and try their hand at GT12.
