Thank you.

Default Which F1 kit?

I'm considering between the following three kits 17.5t blinky racing. Would appreciate some feedback from the experts to help me decide please. Durability? Easy to drive? Building issues?

1) VBC LightningF
2) TRF 101W or TRF101
3) Exotek F1R2

Thanks guys!

I own all three and the speedpassion sp1 and the FGX.
The TRF 101W is not out yet so it is an unknown.

The rear of all three cars is basically identical, a link setup.

I prefer the Front end of the VBC as you can change to exact camber and caster settings using inserts instead of trying to measure as you do with the F1R2, assuming you buy the adjustable Exotek front end as well. Also the carbon fiber front parts are much more durable than plastic.

So far, for me, the VBC has been by far the most durable. It is also very easy to drive, super planted, it doesn't feel as on edge, but it is just as fast, as my other cars.

The build is super easy and straightforward.

The VBC just looks good with the dark anodize that matches any paint scheme and the realistic looking Carbon Fiber Front arms.

17.5 blinky? Hope you have a big track!

I know its not your list...but for the price you can't beat the SP-1. Straight out of the box it is a great car and less expensive than the rest out there.

Here are some photos of my just finished Eagle V12 Weslake VF1 car that I built for a friend. He will be racing this against my Gold Leaf Lotus 49 VF1 car this summer that I've previously posted photos of.

I hope you all like it.

That Rislone Eagle that Bobby Unser won the '68 Indy 500 with is cool!!

Now someone needs to make the wedge STP Lotus 56 Turbine car to race against that Eagle!! I would build the Lotus for myself!!

Same here! Too bad I switched to my TRF (the Mark Webber curse) for the main. Should have stuck to my V2..
