Default Is a RC12L3 a good onroad car??

I am looking to buy an onroad and was wondering if this is a good one to puchase. How does it compare to other 12 scales? How does it compare to the RC12L4? They seem to be pretty fair priced so it would be easy to get started. thanks!

It's a good enough car for almost the entire 1/12th industry to copy. I'd say it's a very nice and capable car.

Default 12L3 For sale

Nate,

Sorry to bother you. Just wanted to let you know I have a 12L3 for sale. The car was run 2 times on asphalt. Full ball bearings and a decent set of tires for 80.00 shipped anywhere in the US.



Regards,

Mike A.

For asphalt tracks it's probably one of the best if not THE BEST. I still run one and it handles very well. Not sure how the L4 works but for a starter car the L3 is more than cabable.

12L3 is probably the BEST starter car.

The L3 is a great car and if you ever get bored with the 12th scale scene you can always drop 6 cells in and a LOW turn motor and have a fast drag car!
