Default To Many choices on what to get need help.

I cant decide on what 1/12 car to get.It seems like there are to many choices.I will be running stock so i want a car good for that.I see some cars have T plates and some with no T plates. What is the difference in handiling?

Well the generation X looks good. But I would stick to the T bar. I had great luck with the T-Force, you could run it T- bar or progressive spring. In stock it was very consistant and more durable in a crash. The chassis links would tweak on the knife type. But the knife was hooked up. A loose track I would lean to the generation X. but you can set'm all for any type of traction. Good luck decideing.

Our local 1/12 scale hot shoe runs the Speedmerchant Rev 4.5 and is very fast with it. I just got into 1/12 scale again with the Generation X and I love it. Still a couple laps down while I try to figure out how the suspension setups work. Another fast guy is running the Corally SP12X but seems to snap a T-plate every weekend. Still a very smooth car and very fast. If I was searching for a car, I'd look at BMI's new DB12R. Seems to be the best of both worlds (T-bar and link) and should be out very soon.

For pure affordability a good used a AE 12L4 would be a decent choice. They can be had pretty cheap and would be a decent car to learn with for a while until you decide what you really need in a car. Run the old school front end with it and you'll be pretty close. Very consistent, cheap to fix, great car to grow and learn with.
