Yeah I think the 1:12 pan cars are meant to run 4 cells tho arent they? SC sized I think is what our guys were running. I know those are so amazing to watch doing laps around the track. I sometimes get mesmerized watching them when im out marshalling and stop paying attention to cars that flip over or get stuck.. lol.

Very true about keeping the speeds down. I'm running a T.O big block, friend of mine is running mamba brushless, someone else is running stock, my girlfriend runs T.O Big block (but can't drive that well..yet). So there really is a wide range of cars. For the size of area we have, a stock micro class would be boring as heck. But I think if the rules were changed to have only one motor used or something, then yeah it would be closer.

Spur gears for me. Suspension as far as I know is ok. Broke my share of knuckles however. Once I got GPM knuckles tho, I was good to go for the rest of the season. Worthwhile upgrade.
