It is realy cool to race a F1 car in full wet conditions if you got good tyres like the good old Tamiya caps. The spray from the wheels is up to 1 meter high.

so you would have to run a waterproof esc and receiver to do this. none of my stuff is waterproof so i could not do this. damp conditions maybe. full wet no.

Our club has been running in wet races for the last two years. The F1s are pretty good with limiting water due to the bodies blocking a lot of the wheel splash. Some of the guys run plumbers caulk on their esc and receiver, but most get away without it. Audio is a bit loud so be forewarned, lol.

Looking to buy a loaded up F201. Don't need electrics. Looking for lots of carbon and aluminum.

Wet race is very fun, but remember to waterproof the esc and receiver 100%

Here some photo's and video from the Danish Nationals round 2 last year in the wet :-)

Default tcs

Not sure if these are better questions for the f104 thread....


We have our local tcs race coming up..and I wanted to know if you must run the stock Tamiya f1 tire inserts (any recommendations for what to use if not)?. Also do they allow for shorti packs in f1?
Indoor high grip carpet.
Thanks for any help in advance.

Pretty sure you are required to use the TCS spec tire and the included insert. Witch is not a bad thing since they are re-branded Pit Shimizu tires and the tires and included inserts work awesome together. Shorty packs are definitely allowed.

May want to also post your question in the Tamiya championship Series thread over in the racing forum.

I don't know if I will compete in those series, I've had a chat with Michael L and if I'm not mistaken a 18t Tamiya non-sensored motor will be used and all original tamiya tires? I'm planning on racing this car in a simple way, not changing between 180-190-200 mm, rubber (tamiya, ride, Pit) and foam tires

This setup will be used in the MACH clubraces and maybe NOMAC NK and an ETS.

Here in Belgium we have a F1 rubber class with the hobbywing 21.5T motor and you can use every brand of tires.
ErikJan is also competing with us in this class.
The 18T sensorless motor is a beast, that motor is super fast and has tons of torque.
I've been competing in this class last year, the first race we had 20 pilots and the second race there were only 10 pilots left cause it was really to fast for most of the pilots who were using the 18T sensorless motor.
That's why this class has less pilots this year, only 3 or 4.
Perhaps we meet at a tamiyacup series or the finale between holland and Belgium.
