RC12L3 is very common 12th car. Most 12th car evolve from AE RC12L series so you can't go wrong with it. Other good car are CRC Carpet knife, Speed Merchant, Yokomo YRX-12, Trinity Switch blade and Corally. You can find more information about other cars in this thread. The first 3 use the RC12L3 front end. The Corally is the most difference from other cars and use it own wheel mounting system. If you plans to use 6 cells then you might have to choose RC12L3 since other car can use only 4 cells. Corally can use 6 cells stick pack but I don't link that. CRC also have the 6 cells car called 6-pack but I don't think that it's much enough difference from RC12L3 to justified the advantage of part availibility of the AE cars. You can see that I am a little bit biased .

I must admit that I'm new to 12th too. Good luck with your choice(s) and wellcome to the great 12th scale world.

BTW I think that all 12th car are good.

$220 for the Yok vs. $150 for the L3. BUT.... with the Yok you get a body, hinge pins, king pins, top turnbuckles are all titanium, and aluminum rear pods that are even lower than IRS pods, Yok wheels that'll never break, so it's all worth it by the time you drop all that into a L3.

From 3 races experience, the Yok IS a faster car. I got 2 friends that are driving the Yok, and agreed on the same thing, you can carry so much more speed into turns. And it just snap out of the corners, no hesitation at all, it transitions very well.

Jack, you have to find a way to reduce the current draw, then go down at least one tooth. You are geared too high.

jack, i was running the monster stock sat... also and had mega punch. i just need to find the right set up for this corally of mine not enough steering. i was running a 42 roll out and i could pull anybody, i just dont have the steering i need to get into the corners, but the car pulls hard from the center out. but it was not bad for being the 2nd time out with it. i think perry was not running any higher than a 43 roll out also. you running this sat... at the track, jack??????? if so see ya there

rcsilly, you can buy the yokomo chassis it's a direct fit for the associated. you don't have to buy the silver chassis either you can get the normal black chassis at about half the price of the silver one.
