If anybody used this, can you share your experience?
Thank you.
that controller is made for 18th scale - it might work ok, but I wouldn't expect it to last for any extended period of time especially not with the motor you mentioned.

best to look at something specifically made for 10th scale - you'll be happier in the long run

That is an old esc made for a 1/18 car 18R. Don't think it is what you want for 1/10 scale F1

Anyone seen those F1 body's on ebay that are chrome eletroplated and look like a Mercedes Fodafone? I'm at work so I cant link to ebay but the item number is 26106416288. Anybody know how good they look in person. I don't think they have the exact same lines as the Tamiya body. Are they a cheap knock off or are they ok? Also since they are one piece instead of Three piece like other f1 bodies are they any more durable????

If it is actually elctroplated instead of painted then it is probably a hard plastic body instead of a lexan body. You can get just as good of a finish using the Alclad or Spastik paints.

Immediatly the car feels as i expected the funnel to have been. Very stable at high speed even if i remove the rear wing completely. and flow does show that its working. It has no spillover like the funnel did, meaning its not making high pressure anymore.
Very interesting; it reminds me of the venturi tunnels on the Lotus 79 ground effect car! Do the rear tires disturb any of the rear exiting air flow?

Well it says laxan body on ebay, who knows if thats true? I will post a pic when I get home so you can tell me what you think of it.

Eventually I want to paint and build my own body but putting those pods on the sides and m,aking it look good has me a little worried.

vyger: is your Alum TRF shock retainer the 1mm down type, 53876, on your f104v.2?
I have been wondering if the 1mm down type rubs anywhere

Tamiya makes a very nice Lotus 79 F1 body. With it's long side pods that are open at the rear, it should work great with your venturi tunnels!!

yep, im saving up money for tires, new screws and front link susp, newer electronics, and that body.

That said these arent venturi tunnels. The floor is flat until the exit while venturi tunnels require a curved shape. Not saying i havent considered it, just that this is what i can do with this body.

Hey Jay, yes it is the 1mm down type and no I don't see any clearance issues at all. There's still about a 2-3mm gap between the retainer and the damper mount plate.

The Serpent F110 nears its release, some shops are starting to list it (at 250 Euro, which is the same as a F104X). No actual stock yet, as far as I can tell, despite some claims :P. Had another good look at the Nurnberg pictures, and the S100 manual for comparison. All information below is based on assumptions and eye-ball measuring, I have not seen the car personally. The assumptions I made are:
- The F110 is based on the S100/S120 cars
- Serpent will try and use as many standard parts as possible
- There have been no significant changes to the car since the pictures at the Nurnberg Toy Fair early 2012

It looks like the car will come with Tamiya F103 style wheels, at 200mm width. The rear pod looks identical to the S100, with a narrower bottom plate to keep the side-links under the body. Also, the S100 oil damper (which a similar design idea as used on the F109) is replaced by a single tube damper. It is likely that Serpent didn't change their rear axle for a custom one. This would mean you could run a 200mm car with Pro10 wheels, by using the S100 wheel hubs and/or axle assembly.

The F110 uses a front suspension based on the Pro10 front end, but with longer arms to match the Formula1 looks. The steering bloks look the same as those used in the S120, which means they're fairly small, so with some luck you'd be able to run the tyres down to fairly economical limits, even with F103 style wheels. It's unclear if they used a metric steering block, or simply fit the (metric) F103 wheels to the (imperial) S100 front axle with a fitting bearing. Either way, it'll allow for Pro10 wheels as well, one way or the other.

Some people can panic now: A Pro10 wheeled car that will fit most regulations. It'll be 200mm wide, and have its front suspention points inside the body. Personally, I like this very much, as the WorldGT tyres seem to work very well at our track. :P

The servo mount is interesting; as it essentially makes the servo part of the chassis, as it extends the top deck. Also, it'll make sure the servo stays where it's supposed to be, instead of potentially moving around on the tape a bit. This might be less ideal on tracks where a flexible chassis is desired, though.

All and all, I'm getting very excited about this car. Can't wait to see it at the track.
