I see 1/12th making a small comeback but not 1/10th. They are both the same with the 1/12th being a bit smaller so there is no need for 1/10th. The longer races and reduced speeds of 4 cell 1/12th also put it above 1/10th.

It much easier for a novice to drive Stock or 19T 4 cell 1/12th than 6 cells Stock 1/10th. A Stock motor 1/10th car on 6 cells is almost as fast as an Open Mod Sedan. This is too fast for novices.

We need to support 1/12th and let 1/10th Rest In Peace.

I'd much rather see 10th scale pan cars make a comeback and watch sedans rest in peace...

Oops, almost forgot... congrats to Marc, Orion and especially Team CRC !!!

Schumacher started with 1/12 cars long time ago.
1981 the Schumacher XL with Lexan U-shape chassis was released
http://www.rccarmuseum.org/museum/files/lexan_c.html

two years later the Schumacher C-Car was released.
http://www.rccarmuseum.org/museum/files/ccar_c.html
I think this was the first 1/12 car with independent front suspension

JoMac had sliding pillars when Schumacher still had a lexan chassis. The Associated 12i and 12iS had independent suspension along with the Delta Super Phaser. Then there was a number of Japanese cars about.

I had those cars! The C-car was so sweet. Loved that one.

I think he meant independant suspension ..not sliding king pins.

The AE 12is was...uh...a short lived experiment. The standard 12i suspension was way better.

FYI...The Schumacher C front suspesnion still lives. It was the basis for Corally's front suspension system.

Hmm, I wasn´t aware of the Jomac. Just found out on a vintage RC site now.
But the Associated 12i didn´t have real suspension just some slotted chassis. The 12iS with real suspension was released after the C-car.
And yes I had Schumacher XL and C-Car, 12i and iS, AYK RX2000 before that some scratchbuild 1/12 cars afterwards ..... Long ago.
BTW the Schumacher XL and other Lexan cars were made for low grip indoor tracks primarely not for carpet.
Back to todays 1/12 cars.
Any pictures?
