Pics don't really do this car justice. It looks great in real life! Now get back to chasing Robert

Those look great, Bob.

We're finally getting enough F1s in Urbana to make a heat. This class is more fun than WGT which is dead here.

Holy crap. I counted atleast 40 F1's. If my F1's disappear I know where to try and find them. Great looking collection. I only have 2 and I am steadily looking for more. I might take the cheaper route and just start collecting different body sets in different liveries.

Is anyone using 16ga wire for the battery leads? The 14ga I have is too short to reach my battery, and 16 is all I have at the moment. Figured since these things dont pull much current it shouldnt hurt anything.

I'm running 21.5 and a 60 amp ESC with 20ga wire all around.
