Default does anyone run 1/12

I am thinikng aboug purchasing a 1/12 scale car. I've found a good deal on a trinity switch blade, and am just not really sure about it. I plan to run it at my local track (so cal raceway) with a hacker brushless system, and running 6 cells, but smaller than sub C to keep the weight down. I was thinking about maby cp 1300's or something like that. Any coments or hints on anything? Thank you for the help

There is a 1/12 scale forum. I don't know if you can run a 1/12 with 6 cells, most use 4. All I can say is it will be ballistic with 6 cells brushless. I couldn't controll it.

So Cal doesn't have a 1/12 scale racing class, probably from lack of interest. I bring my 1/12 scale there every so often just for practice. It's a great way to hone your driving skills, but it can be really frustrating to drive at first.

4 cell is the way to go. 6 cell 1/12 scale cars are bullets and So Cal's outside wall isn't very forgiving.

Have you tried the 1/12 scale tourer by Yokomo? Instead of a pan car, you have independent suspension. Four cells also. This is a class that might be up and coming.

I also saw something about a mini from X-ray. It looked almost exactly like the one from yokomo.

This is the link, it worked yesterday, but it doesnt seem to be working right now.

Thos little tourers are so cool..but pretty pricy..,,,but as my fiancee puts it, cute.

But the beauty or 1/12 pan is the speed and simplicity. 4wd tourers are cool, but it's a whole diffrent ball game.

I know that there's no racing class, but I saw one there the other day and it was awsome. Seeing something so small go so fast. I just need to decide between a used bloody red six pack and a rc12l3. Any advice. I can get a rc12 cheaper though. thanks for the help. I'd use four cells, but I've gotten rid of my brushed stuff and all I have is my brushless, and I can't go down to 4 cells on a hacker.
