Ok,no problem. But the only thing is that my spare R12 has installed the old NitroTC3 clutch. And if you want to see some difference from the car well the SPM clutch it's a most. Not in the plans right now buying the clutch. But if I do, It might take some time.

The good news is that they're are on ebay for a low price. Mine's cost me $75 and a lot of headache to ship it were I Lived. Cuz I bought it directly from Italy.

Here's the link

Like Marcos said, the cars was fast
and it's still fast because I can vouch for that right now. And finally Paul Wynn made it win many nationals races on Florida. It made third place on 2003 winternats and etc.


"Peolpe if you got anything good to say, please ignore this tread" The car already has bad reputation than just to make it worst.

Were doing this tread just for fun and not forgotten.

Thank you.

It's true that the car was fast, unfortunately it was also very easy to DNF, as we all who had one, can vouch. I had 2 (the original and the Team) and got some of my best ever results with them, but my DNF rate went down like 200% after switching to Mugen. The suspension broke easily even on electric car (R12 was based on the Mission suspension), let's just say that more weight and more power didn't make it any stronger Let's not even mention bent lower pivot balls and broken driveshaft blades... and the fact that the shocks were a pain in the a$$ to build with equal rebound and no trapped air.

As much as I have good memories of this car, I wouldn't dare to run one today

I feel you, but on a public forum all info or opinions are not going to always b positive.......all cars have their flaws, n the one your car has is prone to break n ugly smh lol...
