On a "normal" 1/12 pan car, are on the front of the car so the motor's wires are going very nearly or uppon the batteries. It is not very easy to have something nice, I think...

Always on a "normal" car, the proximity between batteries and motor's wires in one hand and proximity between esc, servo and receiver can make a lot of interference.It's what I hadon my original Corally car but an Asso or other "normal" car i s probably the same...

On the Goldrace, only the wire from esc to receiver is going under the battery. The motor's wires are very short (decreasing electrical resistance). So it's impossible to have interference.

For a pic : Have a look on every Offroad 2WD with electronic (mine is actually an Associated B4, I am drawing an ALIEN Racing front wheel drive...) and you will see that electronic installation is very nice looking.

For a pic of electronic on the GoldRace, I will take more pics as soons as I can...

You might want to check the rule books as a FWD might not be legal. I know it is not allowed for TC so it might be best to check if you haven't.

Here in France, FWD are not illegal. They only have no chance to win cause they race with 4WD cars... But, I so like FWD !!!

I'd be interested to know the price of the conversion as well as how it does in the French Championships (are these held on carpet?). Also would like to know what parts from the SP12m are required, and which pivot balls you're using in the front.

Hello Ike,

The conversion kit cost 100.
Corally's transmission and motor support, pivot balls and steering parts are required.
The kit contains all carbon parts, 2 rods to maintain the rear pod and the 2 spacers each side of the batteries.

As soon as the french championship will begin, I will give you news about the goldRace results... the first race is at the end of November and all french championhip races are on carpet.

100 euro is about $120 US. How soon can we order one? Is this car related to the Fire12 that was shown elsewhere in these forums?

Hi Apexspeed, the GoldRace is ready to race now. Just ask for details on my email ([email protected]) or MP.

You're right, it's an evolution of the FIRE12, more rigid, more efficient on crash test (i have done it myself !!! lol).

Default Answer to an other thread's post

All performance tests prooved that the goldRace is easyer to drive than the classic Corally 1/12. About lap time, we are 0,5sec less on our track test...

In fact, we are using a soft front beam (epoxy 2mm) instead of the original Carbon one. At the rear, the side shocks are Associated standard and the longitudinal one is a classic touring car and spring (Asso Gold).

About Tyres, we use the same than the original Corally car.

In fact, the inline batteries don't load the front end much than the classic one but the reduction of the polar inertia is the main thing to sense.

I'm wondering, do you have any photos of the car race-ready, with batteries and electronics?

How much does the car weigh all ready to go? The body mounts up front seem pretty tall, and you mentioned that you are now running a full size TC shock in the center, do you have body clearance issues?

Maybe I'm partial to the layout of the carbon fiber parts shown on the Fire12. I'm not quite sold on this one yet.

I will try to have pics with electronics next week. The car is racing this sunday.

Ready to race, the car is 840g. It's the only one to be at the minimum legal weight in France (probably due to the reduce weight of the front)

the body posts come from the original Corally 1/12 like a lot of parts. The GoldRace is just a carbon conversion kit...

The body clearance is OK even with the TC shock in the middle. I use to race a proline Ascari but there is too much rear down forces with it...

Excuse me but I'm not sure I understand the last sentence of your post... Can you explain ?

I liked the looks of the first Fire12 that I saw, a lot. This one hasn't quite got the same effect... yet.
