    Remote control car question

    What does 1:12 or 1:24 mean?

    Re: Remote control car question

    I just looked it up on Wikipedia for you, this is what I got:

    Some commonly raced classes and the types of models that race them are:

    1/12 Electric Onroad - Rear wheel Drive Cam Am-bodied cars, Touring cars, oval racers
    1/10 Electric Onroad - Touring cars, Can Am-bodied cars, Formula One/Indy cars, oval racers
    1/10 Electric Offroad - 2WD trucks, 2WD buggies, 4WD trucks, 4WD buggies, dirt track oval racers
    1/10 Nitro Onroad - Touring cars, Can Am-bodied cars, oval racers
    1/10 Nitro Offroad - 2WD trucks, 2WD buggies, 4WD trucks, 4WD buggies, dirt track oval racers
    1/8 Nitro Onroad - Touring cars, Can Am-bodied cars
    1/8 Nitro Offroad - 4WD buggies, 4WD trucks
    It should be noted that the fractional number used throughout this article refers to the model's scale in proportion to its full-sized counterpart. Therefore, a 1/10-scale car is one-tenth the size of a real car, though most purpose-built racing models are not built to true scale.

    Thank you. I've decided that size doesn't matter.

    I'm going for speed and durability.

    I got TeamGriffey one for his birthday. NOW I WANT ONE TOO!

    We're having a ball with it.

    I thought you got you and him one last year? What happened to them? Repo man?
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations
