Either way a youtube vid of this race would be awesome if someone has a link!
The Fusion Racing chassis has Red,Black or Blue alloy.

Here is a link for Fusion

Its easy to mistake what car is what when a lot of the Japanese manufactors dont even bother to sell overseas,much less have english on their site. That the main reason Tamyia and 3Racing are the most popular with us round eyes.

Does anyone know wich 2s lipo stickpack fit the old corally F1 chassis? The measurements are:
46mm width, 25mm high and 137mm long. Rounded edges like a nihm stickpack.

Hope someone can point to a reasonable cheap 2s lipo stickpack of about 3800-4000mAh.

Thanks

i think you will be surprised what you can fit.
if i can fit a 4000mah brick into my old ta02 tub chassis (with minor mods), the corally will be even easier. i wouldnt hesitate if you are waiting on a battery.
even the f103 which was designed for stickpacks can fit bricks.

I'd like to see a new car built around the 7.4V mini hardcase lipos with the independent rear suspension diff rear end. I'm tempted to get one of the lipos for my F103 to see how narrow I can get it and use the weight savings to balance the car properly. I see pics of the Formula 10 with the Exotek upgrade kit and the mini lipo and oh boy, that looks nice too. 1800 35C battery, 21.5 or 25.5 motor instead of a silver can, locked ESC. I'd guess a good 15 minute run time, plenty long for a 8 or 10 min race.

uhmm yeah except a corally has the carbon damper brace at the back that is in the way. Overall measurements are 46mm width but at the back the width is narower cause of the damperbrace wich sits at 19.5mm height. There is not much you can dremel off. Only something roundish fits there.

Hi, I have a F103RM and was having serious problems with rear traction on the asphelt track I race on. We run rubber tyres only at our track and silver can motors(going brushless soon). I have finally got a set of RIDE tyres and they are awesome, heaps better the the Tamiya A's or TRG qualifers.

I have seen a F103 not using the rear friction plates and running the shock directly to the motor mount.
In what way would this help?
With side to side movement(twist) how much should I allow(if any)?

Thanks.

Has anyone fit the F104, specifically the Ferrari F60 front wing to the HPI yet?

I have fit the rear wing, and fit the body, but the front wing I have stumbled on

If the mounting layout is the same as tamiya, then there should be no problem.
