I easily spend more time setting up my 1/12th then I did with my F201. But a lot of that is because I enjoy setting up my 1/12th a lot more then I did my F201. I do think that once you get the setup you want it is easier to maintain it in 1/12th because there are less moving parts to get knocked out of alignment.
InspGadgt running 1:12! That's ironic. That's where all the SLC F1 guys have ended up. Hope racing is good. Are you still on Oahu?

1:12 is just barely coming back. I ran my old 12LC against a 12L3, a Corally and something else from this decade. I think perhaps more will join as time goes on. Tires are usually the great equalizer. We have capped the motor to 19T or BL equivalent. Interested in Lipo's but that might be next year if the class can rebound which I believe it will.

Hey dude...yeah man I was racing 1/12th long before I started racing F1 so I'm really happy to be racing 1/12th again. Our local race has been growing a lot this season, the competition is getting really tight now too. Good times

The Georgia track sounds alot like our track. Our quickest lap times are right around 11.1 with a stock motor.

I meant to post this pic of our track on the post above but I hit a key that the forum didn't like... lol


Here is our new built track for 12th. sclae racing. The main straight is 65' long and the lane width is 8' consistant throughout the layout. As I posted above, the fastest lap times so far with a stock motor are right at 11 seconds. Its a blas to run on. also here is a pic of the original layout plan to get an idea of the actual layout flow.

Danthrc,
That's a nice looking track...looks smooth. We might have to make a road trip out there from San Antonio. We have a good following of 1/12 here.

That sounds great! We also want to come race with you guys as well. We race every other Saturday (racing this week)
There is air conditioned pit area available, first come first served. It will hold about 10 - 15 racers.
The rest of the pit area is outside but covered. Plenty of electricity for everyone.
Racing is only $10 and you can race as many classes as you want.

Track is very smooth, and we prep it with allot of grip.

I've recently started running 1/12 on asphalt and absolutely love it! We have a very smooth, large track with good grip. We started runing 10.5t blinky, but due to the track size, modified is not too daunting and has proven more popular. The speed the cars carry through the fast sweeping corners is simply amazing.

Man, how did I miss this thread, lol.

This used to be my 2nd favorite class back in the day, 6 cell onroad 1/12.

My son drives my R12 on the pavement now, just to practice his driving reflexes, which I commend him for. He is running 17.5 on 2S, makes me want to unpack my HPI RS12 and join lol.

This was / is such a great class, took a bit more concentration to run than on Carpet!

this was my favorite class too back in the day....6 cell 1/12th scale racing with corallys was lots of fun and competition was fierce...Corally was ahead of its time with that alum chassis plate car.

i feel our hobby, especially on road, could use a rebirth of 1/12th scale racing outdoors...
