Looks much like the HB C12 to me...

But always nice to see a new 12th scale car... Now it's waiting for TRF to bring out a 12th scale and every major brand who races TC has a 12th scale too...

Yeah it does...

But I did notice something that might be of note...the front suspension arms have a nut on the lower arm so it is possible the screws holding the front suspension arms on don't thread into the plastic. That in itself is an innovation seeing as how the weak point in most 1/12th front ends today is due to the screw threading into the plastic.

Quite a bit actually! There's a couple of prototypes testing in the UK for a British manufacturer (nothing definate yet). Very different from the servo back!

Very cool to see Xray with a 1/12th. They make a very nice product.

Yep, its pretty different And seems to be coming along quite nicely.

The Xray XII does look pretty much like a Hot Bodies C12, but with the cells the other way round. Everyone previously called the C12 an L4 copy! (I've found them quite different to set up and drive though.) Probably a sensible approach for a company's first 12th scale though, as the tried and tested approaches still give you a car that can be immediately up with the rest!

Is this a Schumacher car your talking about? I would love to see them produce a 12th car, i could even be persuaded to switch from my GenX Are there any pics of the car that could be posted or is it too early?

Paul won't let me publish any pics on www.carsrcracing.co.uk for the moment. In fact I've had to take off those that used to be there. There is still a history of the car on there though.

It may be produced by a major UK manufacturer, but Paul would have to tell you that one!

It looks like the rear pivot is farther back than the HB car. Also, it doesn't look like there's a middle hole on the t-bar. Looks like most new t-bar cars are doing this.

Anyone notice the Orion Speedo on the table? Looks like they are just buying KO OEM speedo's. It looks just like the KO that Cyrul tested at the Halloween race a few weeks ago.....And it was FAST!
