As far as:
Racing: completely agree with AreCee
Handle: completely agree with AreCee
Overall: completely agree with AreCee
Which one is better? I have to say the GenX is WAY better, because I just bought one. Seriously, just like AreCee said, both cars are excellent, I doubt you'd go wrong with either one. If I were going to choose one right now, I'd look at which car had better parts support locally. Actually, I can think of one other factor... If you have all metric tools, go for the 12R5. If you have all Imperial sized tools, go for the GenX. If you have both, or don't mind buying some tools, it's back to both are great cars, take your pick.
Another thing I considered when getting my Gen-X was tires... when I was shopping for car, it appeared that the CRC car is the only kit that included tires. It came with the newer style Pro-Cuts in purple and grey (although I didn't know what compound they were at first) and they work very well. Might want to keep that in mind when comparing prices.

Default 12th scale

look tommy there are alot more 12th scales on the market that are just as good as these 2, but we can not make up your mind for you. for every post on hereyou will have pros and cons on all the cars that they have run befor. i see you are new to 12th and with that said i would go with what you can get in your price range and what is avail at your local hobby shop look around at the track you are going to run and see what is being run there (easy to get help from these guys )and then you can decide good luck and wellcome to 12th scale racing
