i saw one of these run at the first florida state race, Rob from Corally USA ran it out of the box and qualified well, not exactly sure where, and finished 2nd less that 3 sec behind the leader,

its a really good car

hahaha, also, spend it wisely. almost all of the people at my track runs these cars. very fast! corally has this weird looking steering links but it works great! it automatically adjusts itself like when its going on straight line, the front wheels actually toes out, and it toes in when cornering. genius!

I don't have the Euros kit, but have a normal car with all the same bits on it!!!

It is a good car. I believe in the US they are not all that popular, but in the UK (and i think the rest of Europe) there are quite a fe about.

there is not much of a following for 1/12th cars around here either, but i am about to get one of these myself. i have an older SP12 that i run occasionally, but its time to upgrade. looks to be a very nice car...

very different steering linkage than others, but does seem to work well!

The steering link is fine. A lot of people say that they don't like the look of it, and i guess i can see their point in that it doesn't look as strong/as good as turnbuckles. However it works, and i would guess that it is lighter than turnbuckles would be.

Apparantly this style of "centre point" geometry actually gives the car more steering than the AE style.

There is a little bit of play in it, which many people think is a bad thing. However this is not the case, it ensures that the car tracks straight. I was talking to a guy that i know who has done 12 for years and he said that some play in any car's steering was a good thing and many people make the mistake of trying to get their steering too slop free.

Talking Best car...lololol

Hi Dakrat,

have a look HERE ...

And even if it's not a US National, you can still be sure that who is the best.....And from track record,those drivers are top euro and world class driver so just have a look to the top 8 and you will find the ONE.
