About the scale looks, yup if scale is your thing then sure it looks a little wacky. So if someone would put a scale front suspension on it it would be ok for you guys?

Corally fails on both, Tamiya, 3racing and TRG pass on both
I don't think it necessarily needs a single nut retainer on the rear wheels. A modified 1/12th scale rim would work nicely as well. Just so long as it comes out to the same dimensions as the Tamiya F1 rims.

A scale or nearly scale front suspension with scale rims and tires would make it ok. HPI had a F1 out that had a scale front suspension but still used 1/10th pan car wheels and that was not OK.

Why have a 200mm car, that sucks. You should have went 235mmm as long as you don't care what it looks like.

1. Able to mount F103 wheels and still be under 200 wide.
2. Inner hinge points on the front upper arms are hidden inside the nose of an F1 body.

Do these 2 things and Corally would have a great selling F1 car that would be legal for the majority of F1 class events If Corally does not then it will not be legal in many places and thus poor sales for them I'm afraid.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

I'm thinkin front end and wheels should be good to go?

Hell, get 3 or 4 of em to show up and they'll have a class of their own and they can say screw all of the other F1s.
They'll be faster anyway.

^^ That's the point exactly. Another class, to water down a class making a resurgence. Also, they will be faster, that's the beef. It's not that they aren't cool, i'm sure they are, my issue is almost EVERYONE we have racing at our track race because of the scale looks, and similar performance (we're silver can only). Start throwing cars like that in the mix, and it will wind up like the touring cars!

You wait till next meeting JR - its gunna get even bigger and better. I know of at least another 3 people desperate to join the fun and two of them already have cars.

Interesting how serious the final became after all the jokes and fun in the qualifying rounds.

I just bought Connor an F1 too, so he's running with us next meet

It was fantastic racing, the best I have had for a looooong time.

found instruction for old HPI Super F1 chassis on HPI website... It seems to me that new WRC F-One uses same ideas in the rear suspension

Yes the F103/F104 cars ARE pan cars...however they are scale pan cars and that was always a big part of the draw to the class. Scale is part of what is driving RC again. Look at the newer classes popping up...VTA, RCGT, Short Course Trucks, and F1...These are all scale classes and are some of the most popular classes in racing today.
I think more people need to realize this. It warms my heart to see more scale looking racing.
The more scale , the better.

They wasn't suggestion rules
They are the rules used in the UK

All to do with realistic looks
(and my P34 sure gets some looks)
