If you’ve wanted to get your start in on-road R/C racing, Team Associated has a new model that might help you out. Their new RC12R6 Kit is a 1/12-scale, electric, 2-wheel drive racer which focuses its lightweight design on high on-track performance .
Starting from the ground up, the RC12R6 features an aluminum chassis as well as other aluminum internal components to keep the weight to a minimum. Graphite front suspension arms also serve to keep this low-slung race car as nimble as possible.
A low center-of-gravity and wide wheels (not included) should keep this car planted in the corner and flying down the straightaways. The body design is sleek, evoking images of 1:1 sports cars and purpose-bred race cars.
