Thumbs up BRCA 1/12th scale Nats: Over 100 12th scale drivers !

12th scale, and On Road are doing fine in the UK
That is impressive

Over 100 drivas in 12th scale sounds like a lot of fun
Reminds me of the Triple Crown days, and the US Indoor Champs limiting entries due to overwhelming popularity at the time

12th scale is Alive and Well Worldwide

GT12 is also a big factor in the attendance figures. Since Schumacher released the Supastox, lots of local tracks are running heats for them as they are simple, fast (on 1s/13.5 blinky) and look great with GT3-style bodies. Plus, you can pick up a Supastox or the Mardave VRX for around 90/$140 as a roller.

Spashett's car didn't look homemade with the body off from the last pics that were posted.... it looked like a R5.1 with all the aluminum anodized black.

Is he driving something new now?

Nope, same car at this national, as the last national. Infact I think the same as he ran at the end of last winter as well.

Stop guessing what it is because you won't get it. It's a special developed by some of us and David is proving it works. It's not an AE, nor any other make of car. Just because you can see bits you recognise doesn't mean they are the bits you could use on an AE...

David's work is supported by Losi and Horizon Hobby, but don't read anything into that either.

With driving like this you wonder if this guy could win a WC... or five...!
