In hind sight we should have waited to post the full meeting minutes and for that I take full responsibility.

Was thinking of heading down to TZII on saturday to do a little carpet practice. Any takers on a carpool? Got room for 3 others.

DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING I SAY AS ME CHANGING MY MIND but

What would a 1/12th setup (linkage system) run me?

Servo
Chassis
Tekin 1/10th Brushless system
Tires
Body
Setup/Tweak system
and would 2 3.7 lipos be enough?

Would one also need a mini pack for power for the receiver/servo?

Yeah. It's not on the schedule. There's EGTC, though. I might be down for TZ as well, but I might have to work on saturday. I should know by tomorrow evening.

Default Team Associated 12R5

Hey there oXYnary... it seems with the 12R5.1 out..... people are selling their old 12R5 pan cars for fairly reasonable prices. I just picked up one on eBay for a great deal.

What folks have recommended to me:
Tekin RS with a ROAR 13.5 motor.
Need only one Lipo.

Todd & others also sent a bunch of other set-up recommendations that I'd be happy to share. Seems like the 1/12 pan car class continues to grow...

Are you changing your mind??

I am not sure if Joe scheduled a race or not because its not on the schedule when I last looked but if you can make it to the Edmonds track you can hang with me if you dare? Power is scarce at the Edmonds track though.

Check around for used stuff. You should be able to pick up a 12r5 or CRC roller for $100 or less. A new Futaba 9650 should be less than $60. About the same price for a new 1s lipo. Jaco Prism tires are $10 a pair. Body $15. Tweek station is nice to have but not a neccessity. Also, get a Novak smart boost and perform the mod to it that will allow it to work with the Tekin.

If I were you, I would probably buy used. The reason is mainly you have been exposed to them for several years and have never really seemed interested in them (Yes, I am assuming) so I take it that you are not even positive that you will be hooked. So I say buy used but be patient. There are great deals all the time on here.

Servo-40.00

Chassis- Wes's Speedmerchant 5's or 12R5 or 5.1 would be good- approx 150.00 maybe with some parts. If you go Tbar you could pay less than 100.00 easily and yes there is a saddle lipo.

Tekin RS -115.00 you do not need the pro unless you plan on running a 5.5 at some point.

Motor- Epic Duo 1- 40.00

Tires- Jaco or Parma 10.00 a pair/ CRC 13.00 a pair. You realistically need 3 rears and 3 fronts to start.

Body- Protoform or Parma or Black Art- 15.00

Setup station-not needed. X-acto knife lift up the car in the middle of chassis works fine.

I currently only have 1 lipo and you can survive with only 1 but 2 would be nice. You don't need more than 2 for sure unless you run a WGT car as well.
