Guys, I plan to get back into racing at your track for the winter season, can you give recommendations for 12th scale spec car. Don't need anything high end, just a solid car that I can get started with. I'm leaning towards CRC or Team Associated.
An older CRC will work just fine and we have parts at the track :)

Thanks for the quick response, I have a older CRC. The next date you guys are open, I will come out and purchase the parts needed to get started, also will purchase a membership. Thanks

Hey Guys, I I need recommendations for 12 scale spec, thanks for all your help yesterday Sg1.
Esc recommendations?
Regulator for my 2s Novak edge esc?
Power supply basic will do.
Can I use team associated body post?

There are some cheaper 1s ESC avaialable out there, I have a few of those on their way :)
I also have a hobbywing booster coming, you could still use your Edge if you wanted to.
Ebay has great deals on power supplies:
12V RC Power Supply 75A 900 Watts for Powerlab 6 8 Icharger 4010 406 308 | eBay
Associated body posts work great, if you need different length ones we have some CRC at the track.

I picked up a lightly used CRC XTI-WC to run 1/12 Spec. I have ZERO experience with pan cars. What are some good starting points for the chassis setup?

-Dampening tube lube?
-Rear shock oil?
-Front camber?
-Front caster?
-Front toe?

Any other tips would be greatly appreciated!

With 17.5 changing to spec tires here's what I've been doing to get mt car to work with them:

5k to 7k dampening in tubes
40wt center shock oil, red center spring
1/2* camber
5* castor blocks
1/2* total toe out
glue front side walls
Only apply traction for 3 or 4 minutes then wipe off and let sit 3 or 4 minutes
Full traction rears, inside fronts up to purple stripe.

Stupid question, but I just spent a half hour Googling it and couldn't find a definitive answer....

Running a Kimbrough 78t 64p spur for the 1/12 Spec Class on a XTI-WC, am I going to need 3/32 or 1/8 diff balls?

Thanks!

All right... The current points series for oval and onroad are done!

We'll get the final points tabulated and awards ordered.

I'll have a new thread started with the next point series :)

The website is still down, so watch here and on FB for updates and or changes till the website gets up and going again.
