Approx shipping cost is dependent on exchange rate, that the only reason for "approx" ..

... feel free to check current shipping cost for any product on our website ... no obligation to buy

The GT12 first annual Worlds will be held in the UK next year. More info on the GT12 Racing UK Facebook page.
John,
Post pics and a report when you test the ORE

The ORE B2B is very, very good. Darn near bullet proof. I don't have the B2B-W17, which is the current version. The car does everything you want it to when you want it to. Lee Owen is very responsive and is on Facebook, but doesn't check RC Tech. I will take a few shots of my B2B and post them for you. I would recommend it. I would buy the current version if we were running GT12 locally for sure. The nice thing about GT12 cars in general is the large sweet spot and the the B2B is pretty exceptional for that. Once you get it right almost anyone can drive it. Compared to a regular 12th scale, it is a lot less twitchy. The 13.5 BRCA rules works really well for the class, so we ran their rule set. If you want to test a little, I can send you mine or find an excuse to bring it down in person.

I would consider that the "Florida version of GT12." They muddied the waters quite a bit by calling that class GT12.

What is the standard race time? I see Snowbirds running 6 minutes. When running 17.5 it was always 8 min. Also why has the heats gone from 3 heats and main to 2 heats?
I am paying double entry fee ($20) and get less tack time.
My $.02 is if its less heats we should have longer run time even in tour car. Battery technology allows us this privilege.

I feel we should start a thread to rewrite the standards for run time. 😁

i agree 8minutes is perfect i do remember some racers whining about standing on the drivers stands for 8minutes lol if i can stand 12plus hours with 85% of my ankle held together with titanium rods and screws, 8 minutes is nothing

i think they were referring to WGT type "spec" or "strip" tires but messed the wording a little.

I get that, but there was already a fledgling class of GT12 forming in the midwest based on the GT12 class in Europe, which utilizes less sophisticated chassis, narrow rear tires and runs a 13.5 motor. Calling the class you guys run "GT12" is akin to me taking a top-of-the-line touring car chassis, slapping foam tires on it, dropping in a 10.5, mandating that you can only run a body based on a real street vehicle and then calling that class "USGT." Would be pretty confusing considering there is already a class called USGT based on quite different specs/rules. Again I get your class and its lower running cost compared to 17.5 GTP 1/12th scale... and if it's popular/growing the hobby then more power to you. I just think it should have been called something other than "GT12." Spec-12 or Touring-12 perhaps.
