Hey guys. I have a question for you. I plan to start racing 1/12 and my lhs races them as either 6 cell/stock motor or 4 cell/modified with a receiver pack. There is an unwritten rule that thou shalt run a 14T, if modified. Anyways, they run both configurations together, as there aren't that many cars. I'm trying to decide which way I should go. I plan to race with a CRC Six Pack, so it will work with either configuration. On the surface, it seems like the 4 cell/modified would be the way to go due to the weight reduction, but then again, 6 cells has more voltage.

Any input would be appreciated!

shoot a 14t would not last around here for long. WE run 10, 11, 12 with 3000's in 4 Cell mod.

I like 4 Cell better lot less wear on the com and tires. Then 6 cell stock.

JeffC: I had a Carpet Knife (v3.0 converted to v.3.1) for about 1.5 years. I found the car to be very easy to drive (once I made the transition from Touring car to 1/12). I used Losi medium Hydra Fluid in the damper tubes. I raced at "The Track" in Maryland. This is a rather large indoor carpet track. Several of the other drivers there are CRC sponsored drivers and that's what they recommended.

I sold that car about 3 months ago, but I'm considering getting a Corally (just to be different) for this season.

Harsh guy---- I personally think if you are going to run mod then 4-cell is the way to go.. I would also say if you re running 6-cell stock and have a choice to run 4-cell mod to try it . In the long run you are going too save the equipment better..



At the nat's here is my setup for SWR raceway.



Motor Reedy TI 9 Turn double. Geared 23/104

Reedy panasonic NIMH

Associated car . 20 front springs.. 3 degrees caster.. 60 wt shock oil. With the GReen spring.(softest) .063 t-bar without the center screw...

I ran #4 ride height carries and no spacers under the front end.. I ran 10 degree blocks on the front end..

I used dampner tubes instead of the dampner discs. I put Trinity red stuff in them and ran brp silicone on my front kingpins.

Tires.. I ran purple fronts size 1.73 I ran pink rears size 1.90 I also used paragon for 15 mins on the tires wiped them off then applied coppertone 45 sun tan lotion until the heat before i was up then wiped dry and much as possible...



Hope this helps you guys

OK there a 12L3 and a 12L3O

The one you want to get out of the two is the 12L3 that the road course car.

You might also check out the Calandra cars. They're based on Associated parts, but less expensive. http://www.teamcrc.com/CRC%20Main.htm

I race with a bunch of buddies and we're racing this Sunday. I plan to race 1/12 and F1 at Castle on 9/16. Some of the guys I race with will be at Castle too, so hopefully we'll add another 4 or 5 cars to the 1/12 race.
