The 201 has many advantages. 4wd and the rubber tires mean you can drive it anywhere. The car is a little complicated and needs the lightweight diff set and reinforced a-arms to be trouble free. Use small speed control and receiver since there is not much room unless you get the MLP frame kit. Which also make's the car faster. Look at what is racing in your area to help decide since not everyone runs F1. There are other F1 cars to choose from though. MLP has a 4wd, a 2wd full suspension, and a d-drive F1. There is also Corally, Hyperdrive, and R/CIndycars. One good option will be the Tamiya F103GT (very inexpensive and superfast) which MLP is building a conversion to put it back as an F1 with the F201 wheels and tires. Good luck.
I park faster than most people drive.
