The rest of the world is starting to get it. I still think this class is a couple years ahead of the curve here in the US.

Slightly off topic, but does the PFM-12 fit on a standard 1/12 OK? Or is there a GT12 body that would be a better fit?

I have an older 1/12 I want to put a GT12 body on for something different, just for fun.

The GT12 cars to have are the Schumacher Atom or Zen 12GT. They have a full length chassis which extends to the rear of the car and are a little different from a standard 12th scale. The rear tires are also narrower. Stormer has a lot of the Schumacher car and parts in stock.

Had my first chance to toss my GT bodied 12r5 on a track this weekend, with a couple older carpet knives and a local with a Corally something (was at a very chilly Queen
city RC track...Cincinnati, OH).

What a ridiculously fun car to drive, in a don't make a mistake or you're off the back kind of way.

We're going to run them regularly in Toledo, OH using a real close version of the Cleveland rule set.

Great class, glad I jumped in!
