I already checked and I can run the F1 car because the races are for fun only.

Should I run my F109 or just go and pick up a touring car like a TB03 or TA05 for cheap?
You should pack up your things and come to So. Cal. and race with us Sept. 25!

If I had the time and money I would go and probably never go home again!

I would have no problem living in sunny weather all year long.

Hi!

Hm, speedo is with VT or disabled?

For me, 30 min is very long time ... but seems interesting.

Can you wrote how users set cars, how fast you can drive to rich 30min and
don't get lipo off ?

Last weekend, in Warsaw was finals for on-road and we drive F1 class,
but chasiss/tires and speedo/engine was open, we have big fun for
Q and finals

And we still look for rules ...(we allow tires F1, foamz, rubbers, pro10,
2S lipo, 1S lipo, life packs) ...

I did a search and couldn't find it - are the decals purchased or custom ? I have an old F103 I'm thinking of taking out of storage and to emulate the T127.

TIA

We have one mandatory pit stop for battery change, but if you go under 4000mAh you will most probably need two stops.
we are using 17.5 BL motors with gearing restricted to 60mm rollout or less, no variable timing allowed.

Qualifications are always extremely close - often with lap times less than one tenth of a second separating the fastest drivers (outdoor tracks 20+ seconds).



We are running a 3 race LeMans series this winter with 24h:10 (2.4H = 144 minutes).
Same rules as in the OpenF1 Cup except 5 mandatory pit stops.

The body is a ChevronModels F-110 >>
It's not my car so unfortunately I can't tell you what color Krister Arvidsson has used.

Are they a direct replacement?
Do you have part numbers?

Inzane, i purchased a set of the RIDE H1 (medium) tires and for the life of me they do not hook up AT ALL!! i dont know how you do it. i cant imagine that the environment is that much different here in texas and if anything they should work better here. track temps are around 100 degrees. no matter what spring combo i try the car pushes so bad its undriveable!!

A few tire reviews for F103 and F104 can be found here.

f109, with pretty much the same setup as his. this is not my first rodeo so im not a newbie to setup but they are horrible at best here in texas and it doesnt make sense, i actually thought they sent me the wrong tires. strangely enough the rears feel softer than the fronts, but even the rears are really bad. i have some soft Tamiyas coming and and some soft RIDE fronts so i can compare them this weekend to see.
