Default New to 1/12 scale need help.

I have a new CRC Bloody knife V3.2. I need to purchase a body and a servo. Money is not the issue for the servo. I want to get the best there is. As for the body, I need something for a small tight track. The track has plenty of traction.

Please help.

Thanks

For the body The Parma speed 8 is the way to go. for a servo I have ran the airtronics one but I prefer the Futaba s9650 it is a killer servo.

I have been using the JR Z3550 for 6 years and have never blown one up. it's small, light, and fast.

CRC has just released their new 12th body, the Courage C60 Evo3 LMP. it is very nice looking, and it comes with the overspray film.

The Speed 8 is pretty much the standard 1/12th scale body.

As far as servo... get a top of the line KO or a JR. Most higher end guys swear by the KO.

1/12th scale cars can be touchy at times. Be patient its a lot of fun!

Another vote for the Parma Speed 8. I use the Futaba 9602, but will be getting the 9650 very soon.

Get best KO they make for the 1/12th scale. Not sure of the model # because I am a JR guy... but just get the best of either one and you will be ok.
