Default CRC 1/12 cars which one?

What's the better car to buy? The 3.2R or the T-Force. The price is the same. Is there an advantage or dis-advantage to either. What one do you recommend and why?

Thanks, Ron

i would have to lean more twards the 3.2r, because i dont realy like the idea of those t plate things. the 3.2r is a bit stronger, and you cant shake a stick in a hobby shop with out hitting a part for it.

but you really cant go wrong either way.

All I can say is the CRC 3.2R is a great car. You can not go wrong. Since running this car I have made all the A-Mains in 1.12th Mod this year with my lowest finish being 4th. The nice thing behind the 3.2R is you never worry about your T-Bar cracking. Also the 3.2R took the top 2 positions at the recent 1.12 Euros over T-Bar cars.

As far as I'm concerned Carpet knife is great for carpet (as the name indicates) and T-Fource for ashalt. Having a t-bar finished on 3rd position at the euros only means that both cars are almost identical and you should buy the one you like most

Having a t-bar can be sometimes pain in the ass since on a severe hit it can break! (I broke 3 on 3 concecutives tries!!) But on the other hand is more suitable for outdoor racing (where I use it)

I have both cars the 3.2R and the T-Force I like them both! But I will say one thing Calandra has sure improved the 3.2R from a car that was already fast! Like Hodge said for Him being a TC and Offroad driver(and we all know they have heavy fingers lol) he sure rips with that Knife he drives and the car looks great!

Thanks, Ron
E-mail me at [email protected]. I have a brand new, in the box, CRC 3.2R, including the new chassis that I'll sell at a great price. Another racer wanted it and I started to assemble it for him. I only got the some of the front end parts assembled then he changed his mind. I've practiced and raced the identical car on carpet and it's awesome!

Having raced off road, 10th touring car and now 12th, the ck 3.2 I would say is the way to go, as soon as these little babies are set up nothing on the track will come close!!

There easy to set up, there is great support from the crc website in regards to set ups and you don't need to worry about a T bar, but hey it depends on where your racing!!

These cars are about to explode over here in the UK, with a lot of none sponsored drivers competing with team driver on an even keel, thanks to Frank and Co!

Actually the last world's was on asphalt. both CRC cars that made the A-main were carpet knifes. (Reinhardt, Groskamp)

I'm not sure if t-bar was available at the time. Marc finished top 3 at last years IIC on carpet with t-bar

What I'm trying to say is that both cars are equally competitive. T-bar is slightly suited for asphalt and carpet knife for carpet. The reason is carpet knife even if you don't hit anything it will require checking tweak whilist with t-bar you may be lucky (I know you should check it at all times but sometimes there is no time )

That's why I propose to buy whatever he likes most and secondly for which he can find parts easier
