Default Way Cool!

Wow! Look at little Blackstock. What is amazing is this is 6 cell 1/12th scale mod and the cars are slow. I bet you 13.5 boosted would crush them.

Wow you arent kidding, that looks like 17.5 boosted speed. And we wonder why no new people are racing rc. This was the fastest of the fast. Now its the slowest of the slow.

What a bunch of hacks

Surprising number of errors for world champions. Amazing how far the sport has come.

One thing we have regressed in is most big races dont have triple A mains and the track size.

Am I crazy or does that track look huge?

They look slow and look like they have less grip than a rubber TC, it was a nice battle, but no amain today is anywhere near that spread out. The guys who are really fast today should be given a lot of credit for how much harder it is now.

That is a good size track, but the slow cars make it look bigger. If you look at the 2010 12th worlds, I would guess those 2 tracks have roughly the same outer dimensions. Look how little groove they have too. There would be anarchy if the track was still that green at a carpet 12th worlds today.

I remember the grip wasn't anything special that week.
I struggled with setup on the 12LW there.

Paragon, on new rug, is nothing like JTG on new rug.

In fact, I don't recall any 12th scale grip roll back then ?
