Default Few questions about SP12M

Hello
Can anyone give me information about tires that comes with SP12M kit or Ahoniemi kit? Are there rear pink and silverstar front or some other?

What servo can you advice me for this car? Will Airtronics 94145 be good?

Should i have battery for receiver? If yes where to buy small cells like 150-200mah?

What is race lenght for 4cells, 5min or 8min?

Will 9x2 motor be good?

Which body is good enough or best for carpet? Speed12 Protoform?


I will post my other question later if someone will answer.

I believe it's gold rears and silver fronts.

Many people like that airtronics servo, also the KO 949 and Futaba S9602 are well liked.

With mod many people rrun a receiver pack, not sure exactly what the prefered cells are and where to get them.

8 min.

9x2 seems to be a popular wind for mod racing, if you're new to 1/12th then I'd suggest running a stock or 19t class.

Most of the commonly available bodies are good, Speed 8, Speed 12, Zytec, LMP900... Speed 12 seems to be the most popular, at least in the states it is.

Thank you for reply.

I'm not new in 1/12 but i'm new in 4cells. I was racing few years ago with 6cells and i know that those cars are very very fast.

Does anyone know the progression of the SP12 chassis? I'm trying to figure out the progression of this car, and what changed on each version. If I recall correctly, the last fluid bulb rear pod was fairly recent, and was very much the same type of car that I had back in the late 80s.

Can anyone lend any insight?

Apex...... every car up the the SP12M has had the bulb rearpod. The SP12M "Euro Kit" is the first to have something different. (ala dampner tubes)

It was like......... SP12..... SP12G...... SP12G2, G3........ SP12M........ Euro Kit. I think it went like that. hehe.

Thanks Jeff, I appreciate it. Is the shock/dampner tubes the only difference between the SP12M and the "Euro" kit? I just acquired an SP12M and wonder if the $99 upgrade kit from Stormer is worth it or not. That dampner bulb has been around a LONG time for a reason. I don't know if I necessarily need to go looking for new parts just yet.

BTW, what will be the main differences on the upcoming US carpet car?

Tral- I use the new lipoly reciever cells from batteries america. Unfortnately they have been out of stock for the last month. You also need the charger for them.I charge them at the lowest setting- they never over charge that way.By the way it's a two battery built set (145mah) I believe.

I have already bought 5 cells 1/3 AAA GP 160mah. 1cell is only 3,75grams. I have no idea how to charge them because a can charge from 0,1A and isn't it too much?

In theory you should only change your cells at "1C" this would mead 160mAh, or 0.16A. I usually charge mine at about 0.3 though. This seems to be fine.

The Euros car has aluminimum front widhbones, but these are basically just stronger than the carbon ones. Also means you can go smaller on front tyres. Also, it has lowered pivot balls on both front and rear, and the grp T bar on rear. This is just set-up though really.

Yes, i have GP 1/3aaa 160mAh. I have also used the GP 120's and some sanyo 50mAh NiCad's. Ideally you want them on a low ish peak setting so they don't get too hot. I've never had a problem.
