Default Best 1/12 scale pan car for circuit

Hey Guy's

I want to start with 12th scale racing on my racetrack.
Witch is the best one for doing that?
I also want to use a brushless set, so i have no trouble, just fun.

What you guy's recomend, 4 or 6 cell's?

Thanks
Rene

12th scale racing now runs 4 cells. This is great because they are pretty much just as fast on the track with 4 cells as they were with 6 cells. This saves money on batteries, tires, and gears due to the lower weight.

You really can't pick a bad 12th scale car out there today. Associated Electrics has been the pioneer and best in the hobby since the begining. The 12L4 is an outstanding choice. Almost every other competitors bases their car on the 12L4 with slight variations.

Thanks a lot.
I also heared that the corally and calandra is a pretty good car.

What you think about using a brushless in the 1/12 scale?

I have a brushless setup in my 12L4 and love it.


You can go so slow with brushless, or silly fast. And for practicing, one nice thing is my transmitter (Futaba 3PM) has the option of setting the maximum throttle. A friend and I often have some driveway racing fun, and we often run the same motors, but sometimes I have a brushless motor in and he has a brushed motor. All I have to do is reduce my max throttle (in this case, to 48%) and our speeds are the same, yet of course the run time is awesome with brushless. I love having the option from easily switching from brushed to brushless and having reverse is a nice bonus too!

I'm a pretty happy camper with my CRC T-Fource. I am also thinking about picking up a BMI 12L4 to try out aswell.
