The same could be said about the body and engine overall; it sort of looks like the Lotus 49 but it's not an exact replica. I had to take some liberties for packaging purposes. The biggest "mistake" is in the engine. The left bank of cylinders should be the forward bank but It's set rearward to make more room for the brushless motor wires.

Anyway keep up the awesome work Big Al. Your take on the Lotus is a real treat for everyone that frequents this thread! Somebody send this guy a chassis!

Features:
Chassis is made using 2mm quasi isotropic carbon fiber
Semi rigid rear link, which allows different rigidity of the rear links for a better tuning
Multi wheelbase option, on both rear and front side
Variable battery placement with in 20mm range
Flex adjustment on the Upper deck

Car has been designed keeping the racer in mind, so all the adjustment are easily availble in matter of seconds.








A quick note over the name: instead of choosing an acronym or a number, we chose to name this car after one of the most emotional racing tracks.

Awesome!

it's not so much as which is a better option for a long track if you're racing, it's what does the regulations you are racing under consider legal....

If those are the only 2 choices then I would opt for the RPM motor. These cars can feel like a 17.5 sedan on a straight away like yours. Personally I'm running the SchuurSpeed 21.5.

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

For those of you doing the VF1 body...how wide are you making the stripe going down the nose? Are you sticking with the lines right in front of the windshield? Going to get started on mine soon and I hope to come up with some pre-cut masks using my vinyl cutter.

Get the RPM version. F1 doesn't need as much torque. I have the 21.5 RPM version in my 4WD mini and on the straight, it is quite fast. I'm very close to ordering another one for my F1 but just exploring some options right now. The RPM has a 12.3 rotor versus a 12.5.

And both versions are ROAR legal I believe, at least according to Tekin site.

Yes Dan, i think like you. Is better to F1 more rpm than torque.
Probably i'll buy this rpm version.
Thanks!!

I guess when you think about it isn't the torque and/or the RPM of the motor also very, very dependent on the gearing (pinion/spur) on the car itself?
