I know Ant runs GT12 as I'm in the UK GT12 Forum keeping tabs on the class. I own 6 GT12s: Atom, Supastox GT, 2 Mardaves, an ORE 12GT and and ORE B2B. we raced them for 2 years, but sadly don't have enough racers.

If you order a box of bodies from Schumacher(Kamtech), they will show up in about 5 business days and the shipping is not terrible. Stormer may also have many of the bodies in stock. I've order bodies from Bob in the past.

Best bodies are PFM12 and the Ascari.

We're running a modified version of GT12, I named it 12th Scale GT, with 21.5 motors but using 12th scale chassis, not the Atom or Zen GT 12 chassis's.

We have a buzz here in Central Florida, the class is starting to take off. 6-8 racers now showing up.

Real close tight racing which forces you to drive the absolute best line every lap.

Out of that list the Protoform PFM12 is the only approved body to run.

You won't be able to run any of those other manufacturers listed.


Michael Bruce stocks the PFM12.

Where is your FB page, couldnt find it. Picking up a CRC from Chris to get back into 1/12 scale, figured this GT class would be a good place to start again.

The companies I have found is Delta Plaskits, Old Rc and blue Groove . they make the older RC bodies we used to race. The old Vette and Liger Masserati,as well as the PFM12. they all work well and we are having FUN!

See you on the track soon Bill, I built a GT car, but the Altered Ego chassis I used is broken so I have to switch everything over to the XTI WC 17.5 car I ran at the Birds and make that my 21.5 car.

Slighty off topic. Um, asking for a friend. Is this the peak time of year for 12th scale racing for most of you guys? Does it die come spring time until fall/winter? My friend is wondering!
