Very odd thing for a GT12: it comes preassembled!?

Other notable things is the "old school" front-end, the Corally flavoured rear pivot, the offset pod, and the graphite axle (for that price? rather amazing!)...

Mine is supposed to arrive tomorrow.

Very interesting rear suspension...I recall seeing something like that before. There is a slot car rear suspension like that and I vaguely remember a RC one as well. Always fascinated me.

I'm not sure whether they have distributors in the US or Canada? Here in the UK, I ordered it direct from them...

Spash said to me last weekend that it's just as easy for him to screw the bits together before putting the car in the box as it would be to pick all the parts to go into little bags. They also save on printing costs as they don't have to include an instruction manual!

If you're outside of the UK, drop Zen-RAcing an email. I'm sure they'll ship overseas.

Just an FYI, it doesn't come with a bumper. No big deal, I'm told a SupaStox bumper should fit straight on the body posts, and they're cheap enough, but if you get yours online, make sure to put one in the cart!

There's only a few tracks running GT12 that I know of, and from what I've heard, mostly running Schumacher SupaStox GT and the odd Mardave Assassin...

Zen does ship to the US, from what I've heard, so if you're near a track that runs GT12, that's easy picking for a top-runner car.

The one to get (in my opinion) is 169.99, which comes out to about US$250. It does come with one set of tires.
