Hi. I'm having my backyard cemented which I will use as a personal R/C Race Track!!!!
Anyway, i'm thinking about getting an F103 (Audi R8 body) as an everyday use bashing car. I will run it in my backyard and smooth parking lots.
My backyard, however, has those little slits or seperations between the cement, if you know what I mean. They are only about a centimeter deep, and a centimeter wide. Do you think the F103 can drive through these seperations without any scratches, jumps, etc?
Also, since the Audi has the special wide chassis, will most of the oversteer be fixed? Because my friend used to have a GT-One F103 with the narrow chassis, and it was oversteering a lot. I read that with a thick or harder main chassis will get rid of the flex up front to add rear traction. Is it true? Would a custom made upper deck work as well?
It will be an everyday use bashing car using the stock mabuchi motor it includes. What hop ups shall I get? I won't compete in races, but I do want to make adjustments all the time. I also want to keep the price down. What should I add or delete to the list of parts I want?
Also, I'd like to use F1 bodies. Willt he speical wide chassis fit? I don't mind if it extends out the body, though.
