Blinky!

Mod 12th scale is a world of hurt. There's maybe half a dozen people in ROAR that can stay on the same lap (maybe even the world?) and keep the rear in the car. Let alone hacks like us!

Man I agree with you on this one. Even on high bite carpet getting thru 8 minutes and having the car drive-able seems to be a challenge. Our track is 40 x 90 which allows for a 70 foot straight. We typically have a sweeper at the end when we know that the little missiles are going to be running. I have seen them blow over half way down the straight from a body tick in the front also. I would like to see them on a long straight just to see the speed though.

I ran mod in my 12 scale for practice it helps, you will see if your car is setup right for 17.5, I would recommend that you try one run with the 17.5 and switch to the mod motor, if there is a big difference in handeling or the car feels really bad your 17.5 setup is wrong.

We have an open 12th class at TQRC
It's nice to have the option of how much power you want to run

Having said that
I chose to run the iic 12th SS platform of 13.5 Blinky this week
Our track enjoys less than stellar grip during the summer months, so of course mod motors are a challenge to hook up for 8m

Thing is, Mod has always been a class of measured driving, used to be batteries, now it's tires than need a smooth style
Either way it's still cool

It was a bit of a surprise to me to see how quick the SS car was, even compared to mod

Here is a view of the race
http://www.tqrcracing.com/forum/gall...o=20&doc_no=85

We are discussing 12th SS as the Expert class after the summer series is over
I don't ever want to see mod 12th disappear, as it is so fun to drive, and helps my skills to improve, bit torn though, as SS is HeLLa fun to drive too
