Simply put, No.

I love 12th scale racing, it's pretty much all I do now, but the lines and driving style are different than Sedan racing.

I ran off road and sedan as a new racer before running 12th scale, after a full season of 12th my driving improved in all classes. You can't get sloppy with 12th scale and this really seems to improve your driving skills. Is it the same as driving sedan absolutely not, but it will help your sedan driving indirectly.

17.5 is good to start with and its not slow at all.

I tried a 13.5 in mine the other day and it was a different animal (for me at least).

With 12th I feel it develops your precision driving, as these things go wherever you point it to, super precise cornering.

Don't worry about destroying the car. Most are pretty tough. Yes you can break it but it's usually just an arm or steering block.

As for training, I agree and disagree. Yes the driving style can be different but NOTHING sharpens the car control and reflexes better than 1/12th. I use 1/12th as training for 1/8th onroad. They are even more different than 1/12th to TC yet it has improved my driving.

I have been racing largescale off road for a few years now and and my PB in a 30 minute race was 66 laps. I took a break from it for nearly 6 months and the car sat in the garage without turning a wheel.

I purchased a 1/12 pan car for something to do and found a track that has some really good drivers and during that 6 month break had been racing on road 1/12 scale every week.

To cut a long story short I recently fired up the largescale and took it racing, my new PB is 71 laps for a 30min race.

Now 1/12 scale on road and largescale off road are not even similar but IMO the 1/12 scale really improved my driving based on my new BP.

No there not the same but they sharpen your reactions for other classes. I feel much better when running the TC at speed than before a season of 12th scale.
Love 12th absolutely love it

If you already have a 10.5, I would stick with that and turn the timing off from the speedo. A non -boosted 10.5 is not that fast at all, but you benefit from increased 'feel'. A boosted 10.5 is almost 'mod' speed but the 'feel' is rubbish because of all the added timing and turbo. You can always add speed via the timing feature on your speedo once happy with how the car is handling. Cheers!

everything sounds great!

i have to set my 1/12 as soon as possible!

btw what i ment by "improve in touring" is that i think 1/12 teaches you to think faster to act faster to see longer...
so in a sense this will improve all other classes...
and so it seems according to all of you!

Hi guys! I'm getting ae5.2 soon and I'm hoping run it with 17.5t or 13.5t hobbywing motor.

But no way I could find the pinion size info for the motor I mention. Any body can help on this? The stock spur is 96t

For 17.5, you want roughly 95mm of rollout, which means roughly a 1.5 : 1 gear ratio, so the 96 tooth stock spur is no good. I suggest a 74/50 gearing to start in 17.5. For 13.5, 80/40 should be pretty close to the 70mm of rollout it will prefer.
