for the compatibility with tires, body, and parts i suggest to go for a speed passion or a f104 . And the F104 really worth the extra money

I am looking at:

3 Racing FGX with an eventual Exotek upgrade

3 Racing F113

After considering the same options, doing my research and finally talking with a local F1 guru, I went with the Speed Passion SP1. The car is brand new and does have a few new kit issues that gave me a hard time, but now we have a few proven solutions and other help is available from Howard at SP in the thread. Aftermarket aluminum parts are in the works as well. For the price point, I'm very happy with my purchase decision. I'll know how well it runs in about a week and a half

Check out the SP1 thread for more info: Speed Passion brand new F1 car - The SP1

Go with the F104 or SP1, the FGX isnt competitive and 113 is wider than standard rubber tire rules allow.

I have them in stock, I just haven't had time to list them on the store. I will do so this morning. If I am reading your location correct, you are in Michigan?

Either the SP or F104 would be your best choice. If you plan to enter the TCS series (Tamiya) then the F104 is your only choice.

To all the WRC drivers (and Fenix I-mola conversion driver).

We've released a new conversion kit. This will be made for WRC and F104 legacy (Pro, V2...)

And this time is called Suzu.ka





Some more pictures and details here:
Fenix Racing

Stay tuned for more...

Is the front end on the SpeedPassion SP1 the same as the Street Jam SJF01?

I have a Fenix I.mola and have been VERY impressed with the fit, finish, and materials used. I don't think you could go wrong with anything from Fenix Racing.

F1 Tuning.

Other than inner camber links how do you adjust the rotation of the car? My car seems like on corner entry all the weight is going to the front wheels and it's pivoting on the front as opposed to turning smoothly through the corner.

RobK? :P
