Guess Exotek F1 is not available to the UK ?
Yes I got one from DMS Racing before Christmas no problems at all

primarily, the wheel arches are made for touring sized tires... regular f103 tires will seem a little too small...

have fun!

Alexander,

I appreciate it and I wonder how it handles compared to the F1 bodies?

Thanks, Mike

I have a stock of the DDrive chassis for the 103. My friend has been running it on carpet with both foams and rubbers and likes it quite a bit.
You can get it right from my store here
http://www.f1paintlab.com/Site/PAINT.../DDRIVE_1.html or PM me and I can set you up
I will eventually be stocking both EXOTEK chassis and the Tamiya carbon chassis.

hiya Mike,

The front splitter on the courage shell has very (read extremely) low durability.
the smallest of knocks will cause the splitter to scrape along the ground (unless you like to use buggy type ride heights) and tear off (eventually).

If you're using an F1 type chassis (and not a f103gt chassis), you can use the front bumper from the new tamiya wolf/lotus kits... part number: 19338096
this will make your bodyshell last a long time... again, do not run the shell without this bumper... everyone i know either trims it off to start or have it rip off at some point.

handling is not bad, understeers slightly but by and large, there is a lot more downforce front and rear vs an open body f1 shell.

for better handling, you might want to use lemans shells with better aero package... the courage is made specifically to satisfy scale enthusiasts...

have fun!

-Alexander

Hey Alexander<

That is kind of what I thought when I saw the front splitter and I was planning on making it fit my F109 with bumper...of course...LOL.

You mentioned le mans type shells, but this courage body looks exactly like the current Le man's type of cars running in the ALMS races.

Thanks, Mike

The Courage body is designed to be a replica of the real thing.

The usual Le Mans style bodies are designed for aerodynamics, to generate downforce rather than look scale..
Examples are the ABC Hobby Response GT1, Active Hobby Toyota GT1 and Porsche, and the Protoform Mulsanne.

There are also the more scale Group C bodies from Cross and Blade Racing that will still give loads more downforce than the Courage.

OK peeps, time to list all the F1 clubs out there. There is a thread in the onroad section now so make contacts when you can and get the info. As a bonus you can checkout the new Himoto F1.

http://redirectingat.com/?id=42X1295...himoto-f1.html

I'm getting all verklempt here just thinking about it. I'm easy to please and it should be cheap, I'm all about cheap.
