F1 retro is still by far the most popular class over here, and anywhere around the world that has a history of F1 racing, although we still only allow f1 style front ends and wheels.

Fortunately there are enough of us that can still get our foam tire kicks in 12th scale

F1 here is so much more popular now with rubber tires
D-Main deep most race days

For me, the cars are more difficult to drive on rubber (less fun), but if that's what gets people out racing, so be it

Here's my F104 V2 with a Ferrari F60 body in Racing Green....too many red F1 cars at our local track!

Good color choice. Half of the F1's at my local track are white. I'm glad you stayed away from white.

I wish the same were true out here. Our f1 class is slowly growing but we've had some people join in and then quit due to just not having fun with the lack of grip in the rubber tires. If we can get that sorted out better I think it will grow even more. Switching to the HPI tires have helped as now the cars have enough rear grip to not be spinning out every other corner but they all still push pretty bad. I'm almost tempted to take the class to foam to make it more enjoyable...but I really don't want to go that way if I can help it.

Right now the predominant car on our track is the FGX but I think with the HPI tires working as well as they are the F104 may be the better way to go now. I plan to test my F1R with the HPI tires when I get back from the IIC.

A great day at RC City in Bangkok for the RIDE Cup Round 3.
16 F1 cars for 2x 8min qualifiers and a 10 minute A Main Final with all cars!

Pit stop required between the 5th and 7th minute for a tyre change.

All cars were required to use RIDE's great R1 compound tyre, 17.5t motors and stock ESC's.

I was very happy to get 1st with my F104V2, my good buddy Ludo 2nd with his HPI F10 and Shin Adachi with his HPI F10. We had some amazing help from our tyre changers, namely Jilles Groskamp, Atsushi Hara and a few of Thailand and Japan's top drivers....A good day out!

No doubt they are good drivers, but I would like to see the cars and get the setups on the HPI F10. The cars are generally avoided by the F1 rubber crowd here in the US. Even if we have to get the whole Exotek chassis and additional HPI parts, I would be curious to see the cars and setups, especially since they are running 17.5 brushless, faster than what we generally run.

UF1's Open class let us run 200mm, foam and of course Open motors.
I ran 8.5 (what's boost again?) at 60 to 80%, track size and traction being the limiting factor and at the last race I sacked up and ran 100% with near perfect traction.
That was a fun class and I'd sign up to do it again in a second!

Game on!

Ok not nearly as impressive photos as the ones BP posted but I got the body today from the F1Paintlab and mounted it up on my Exotek F1 Ultra. Looks great. I cant wait for the guys at the track to see it. Thanks again BP.

F104W GP edition | 21.5T


Even the classic F201 gets one - this time a 10.5T
