Default I've found a new class that I like! :)

I ran 12th for the first time at Chesterfield last night and I must say...awesome!
Technically its what I should have gone to when I stopped racing the F1's really, and now realise thats what I should have done.

Obviously, buggies are my main preference still, but I could well get into the little things very seriously.

Yes they are awesome little things! I have my heart in off road as it where I started racing years ago but 12th helps your off road racing, you need fairly razer sharp skills to race one at a good level.

Im running an L4 at Maritime, I cant recommend it enough, just get a second hand L4 and chuck some of your old brushed gear and old cells (if you have moved to lipo) and your there! Cheap new class to enter.

Oh yeah and stock up on a few T bars whilst your learning to drive a 12th!

I ran the Xray for the mag and running 10.5, awesome straight out of the box. Wasn't expecting to enjoy it soo much but i did. I made remarkably less mistakes than I thought I would.

i only ran one pack of cells all night and if there were more people there would have finished every run without a problem.
Team leader Mr cosgrove was running Mod with the Xray and I was only 1.1 secs slower on our fastest laps, which I though wasn't too bad for my first attempt at 12th.

BMI rr is the car

get yourself entered for the SSO III @ Chesterfield. There like the Nationals only there only for a day. I travel and do the club night on Sat's and race the Sunday. Makes the trip worthwhile then.

yeah, I booked in yesterday.

Trevor said that there was a few spaces left, so I booked my spot.

.....does that mean I'm starting to take it seriously?

Tel...

This one class I've not had a go at... I've got a Corally SP12M, but never had the time to fit in racing it...

Although I might just try harder... What tyres are the must have, and which traction compound??

I also asume that the stock (19T) class is stupid fast?? Hmm....... Getting quite tempted now....

Slightly slower than 10.5bl which is a little quicker than a 12T/Br

Jaco double pink fronts & yellow rears with CS High Grip addy

which 19t motor would you be using?

Hey Glenn,

Thanks for the tips, I'd probably be using a Peak Dynasty v2, as thats what I've already got Or a peak dynasty with standard endbell...

What sort of gear ratio/roll out would I be looking for??

Cheers

JIm

Hey Jim,

Not sure on the ratio on the car as I just asked what others were running. I ran a 96 spur and a 34 pinion with Jaco yellow rears straight out of the box.

I must say I'm impressed. Didn't think I would be but I am.
Its not quite as fast using the 10.5 as the 4wd buggies indoor (in a straight line) but its the speed through th infield that gets you. it's awesome. But the best thing is, you have the grip to cope with it, and choosing lines is so much easier despite the higher cornering speeds.

I'd reccomend it anyday.

V2's around 55mmpr

other motor will depend on if it's upright brush (more revs) try 48mmpr, laydown (more torque) 50mmpr you can gear up from there

laydown brushes are trimmed/tuned 0.5mm either side to reduce drag brake effect and efficiency goes up

if it slows up @ 7 mins it's over geared

until the grip somes up, like day 2 @ a national on duo carpet, the thing just wants to lay on it's back.

carpet

Prima Duo carpet
this is 3m wide, mega grip from new, loads of fluff, insane grip on day 2 at a national

Track GT
2m wide, little grip on day 1 but like duo's 1st day on day 2

Right on Telboy!

I've tried most classes myself but 1:12 on a good track and with a well set-up car performs like nothing else! Haven't calculated it, but it's gotta be the fastest class I belive relative to scale?

After 8 mins you're almost dizzy!

Btw. some years ago we ran this class in Norway with free motors, 6 cells and 5 minute heats... imagine 6 cells and 12T... that was sick!!!

Yeah, I heard that the Duo stuff is silly grippy and everyone just grip rolls.
Was told on sunday that the best thing to do is go soft on the front compound!? Is that true?
Sound silly but if it works then hey!
