Is your setup based on the Pit Shimizu tires or Tamiya tires? Thanks!

Default FYI

There is two UF1 threads going on...
UF1 STILL ALIVE AND WELL!

Here is what I posted in the other one, so not to leave one out (as if anyone cares )

Sounds grand, I belive that any true progress has to include (ideas and active participation) not just of "a few persons," but at least of most of the persons that actually make UF1 what it is and want to participate organizing it.

After all we are a bunch of people (much more than a logo, a name or a website). A bunch of enthusiasts that get together to race. To keep this legacy alive, it will help if everyone feels included and part of the decision making process.

If people are left out of the organization, and it's happened before, naturally they go away. Lets try to make this new thing as open an participative as possible for everyone to really feel a part of it.

I keep volunteering to help out in any way when the time comes and I am sure a lot of the guys will to.

Thanks Tony,
Marcos

Consider race TCS F1 next year and I haven't quite get the setup for Tamiya tires yet. I think others might ask the same question so it's very helpful to have a starting setup for Tamiya tires.

Well, when I placed the order for the F104WGP I didn't know the F104V2 was coming out that soon. Probably picking one up later this year as a Xmas gift for myself, unless there is TRF417WE or TRF417X2 after the IFMAR in 10 days from now .

Thanks!

Is there a schedule yet for SpeedTech Sunday? Maybe I missed it but figured I'd better ask.

Take a tour of the Lotus F1 factory and see just a touch of what goes into research, development and manufacturing the most technologically advanced automobiles on the planet. http://www.p1brand.com/black-gold-gr...1-factory-tour

Something tells me that the UF1 Team Lotus of Tony Phalen and Mike Kennedy will especially like this article...ahhhahhha.
