hey, I am looking for a good ESC for my 12th scale.

I know this has been asked before, but the answers were months ago. I am looking at a hara twister or the GM V12XC.

I have a GTX, but would like to try something else.

Opinions please.

The GM SX-12 is also good, but it's hard to beat a GTX.

I know it's not on your list there but I've been running the LRP ESC's for the past 6 months or so and really like them. No overheating problems, profiles seem really good, I'd definately recommend the QC2.

Did you get one of the new ones or the older version? The new ones wont go into thermal overload as easilly when running faster motors.

Hey, I want to build a YRX-12 from the ground up(sort of a project for me) and was wondering if anyone knows the thickness of the stock chassis. I want a car for carpet, and know yokomo offers a 2.1 mm chassis, but if the stock is thicker then I would go for that. Also, does anyone know if Associated sells a complete L4 front end? I thought i remember seeing someone buy a complete front end(all in 1 package)

The YRX-12 was specifically designed for asphalt, even the thick chassis is VERY flexable and I am pretty sure the wheelbase is longer as well. If you want to run a t-bar car on carpet check out the IRS, BMI, CRC or hyperform chassis since they are all stiff and made to be run on carpet.

As far as front ends i think crc sells a complete new style front end, but i dont know if he includes the updated castor blocks, but they are under $3 (but they make a huge difference in how well the front end works, alot better mold quality) for around $40(?)

BTW as far as bodies, the thick body will steer more (and trust me, you do notice it) than a thin body due to the extra weight, so just keep that in mind.

The stock YRX12 chassis is 2.1mm (mine measures 2.07). The wheelbase is 2-3 mm longer than most cars. I've never run mine on carpet but one of the locals guys did with some success, although it's definately not a carpet car.

Does anyone have a picture of the best way to setup a Associated/CRC front end in terms of the servo mounting method? I am using the stock mounts (CRC) with a mini servo, but this seems to give the wrong polarity of ackerman. Would laying the servo down and putting the servo head up help this?? Thanks in advance.

I was talking about it with Robert from KO last tuesday and when they slapped a heatsink on the ESC it helped a lot. I'll propably end up trying the new version since they definately drive very well, I just had problems with it shutting off in the middle of my run.

I ran a yrx-12 a couple years ago it was an awsome car on asphalt I placed 6th in the A at a roar nationals with it. When I ran the car on carpet I basically glued some strengthening ribs to make the chassis stiffer. It worked great just added a wee to much wieght. Mind you we run a series in our state and of of 8 races one was on carpet so I didnt worry about it. If you want contact Doug Powell of Prc he'll have a chassis for it if you want to run on carpet!
