Funny, I had no idea running a spool in a 12th scale was even a thing until the Canadian Nat's. A few racers tried to convince me to try it but I was in disbelieve.

The support from the Destiny team is pretty awesome... problem is that if I get a VD12, that would eliminate all excuses for losing so I may need to consider another chassis LOL.

Yes, wiki was updated. Destiny RC USA is the N/A distributor

Please see attached for a setup sheet from my mod 1/12 at MHIC this past weekend. I struggled with setup this past weekend as my normal tire choice (A32/A30) was very difficult to drive consistently on the right hand side of the track with the spool in the rear. As such, I went to a firmer rear tire that then left me struggling to find steering (without creating the same problem I had with A30.) I didn't figure out a solution to this problem until A3, so it was a case of too little, too late - unfortunately. Overall, I qualified 4th and finished 4th. Let me know if you have any questions about the setup.

Additionally, we had some great performances from other team drivers in 17.5 and 13.5 - hopefully we will soon see setup sheets posted from them, too.

EDIT: Ok attachments appear to be utterly broken so this will have to wait.

Just getting caught up on inventory after MHIC, but site should be back up soon for orders.
