Do you own one or are you looking to buy one? A friend of mine has the Carpet knife and he just ordered the Six Pack. If you have one I would be interested in hearing what you think of the car. I am considering getting one of these as well.

I have the red one and love it. You can either use the tweek screws in the T bar or the side springs like carpet knife, but not both at the same time.

Do they sell it in blue also now or do you have to piece it together to get all the blue stuff, if you do it will be quite a bit more money then getting the red one.

I don't think the blue or red matters with handling, they are the same car.

I was wondering: Is there a huge difference in handling between the 12L3 and Six Pack?

Also:is there a kit to turn a L3 into a Six pack? I'd like to try it

Fatdoggy.........The 12L3 is a different car from CRC 6 pack. The only thing that is the same is the front end and they both take 4 or 6 cells. The rear end and rear suspension is what makes the differance in the two cars. The Associated car will be better off on higher bite smooth tracks where as the CRC car will excell on a bumpy track with less traction. With saying that both cars can be tuned to handle both conditions but they just are more at home under thoes conditions.

Petenis- CRC makes a "conversion" kit to turn an L3 into a Six pack. I think it's about $60 and it includes the damper tubes and the "uni-tune" rear end pieces and MAYBE a new chassis plate. I think Kev Kane hit it on the head about the handling diff's between the two. -dave

They get $225.00 for the red one, the blue one is probably the same.

I looked on the CRC site and did not see a blue version in one kit. I know you can get everthing seperate but I bet it would end up costing you a lot more then you want to spend.
