Just want to share some pics I made with a DLSR of my F104v2 and its new 3racing wings (I hope they work):

Nice job, I like the look a lot!

I'm hoping that my F 104 with hop up ' s is good enough to compete.

Thanks for all the help guys, sorry about all the nooby questions from me across this forum lately. I'm new to RC F1 and it was much more different than 1/8 off-road than I originally expected.

Anyways I've decided to go with a Yokomo YRF001W since it seems to have the best parts support in Europe over other F1 cars so I don't have to wait 4 weeks for a flaming spare part if I do break anything. If you have a Yokomo, would be nice if I could get your thoughts on it (I have read the Yokomo YRF thread already).

The track I'm going to be running at is Crystal palace RC track (youtube it to see what its like, it partially resembles the real Mugello race track in italy) and it is a fast asphalt track with some hairpins and right-angled corners, so if you have any tuning recommendations, don't hesitate to share.

I'm planning on using Turnigy Nano-tech 1s 6400mah batteries, Castle Sindwinder 3/7700kv 1406 4 pole motor (I'm not a racer and the only 'official' races they do at this track are for 1/10 electric touring cars, 1/5 gas touring cars and HPI Baja-only races, so I don't have to worry about regulations and I am familiar with Castle and they have the best customer service IMO, plus its good value for money and water-proof). Any opinions on my planned set-up are more than welcome.

Final 2 questions are;

Are their rain tyres for R/C F1's? and what tyres do you think have a good balance between durability and grip? thank you
Hi Charlie,

I raced at Crystal Palace one many years ago. Assuming the grip is good you'll have fun with a F1 car there.

Not much advice I can give on motor and speedo settings or gearing as that's completely different to what I've run indoors and outdoors.

In your position I'd be trying the Ride pre-glued tyres. The rears grip well, and the fronts are safe tending to understeer on tarmac. Duration is very good too.

Pit Schimizu tyres are the most popular for racing. Not sure how long they would hold up at your track. Look up the RC F1 resource pages from Australia for more on rubber tyres outdoors.

As others have said there is no rain rubber tyre for F1. The softest rubber works well with enough water. Nothing works on greasy half-damp conditions.

If rules don't bother you then foam tyres with Tamiya F1 Tyres caps glued over them are amazing in the wet.

Hope that helps and have fun,
Mark

How much different is a wide F1 car with foams compared to the narrow ones with rubber tires?

I purchased a TRF101w but now I'm having a little bit of buyers remorse.. My TRF101 is quite happy and having two F1 cars is a little overkill for myself.

Love the 3 racing wings have them on the SERPENT and they work and look more authentic I reckon

Here is the foto of Ride F103 rears with cut grooves. Maybe sometime I will try to cut more grooves, but I dont expect them getting any better.

A W E S O M E ! Very nice work, thanks for sharing!


Some feedback from myself of the 3racing wings:
The rear wing is a real plus. The rear is strongly planted and allows for early acceleration.
The front wing is the opposite. It seems to have no real effect, maybe even less downforce than the original Ferrari front wing

How do you cut your tyres? What kind of knife are you using?
