Those upper front arms looks A LOT like those on the original HPI Super F1.

Stulec52,
I have no idea. I hope they stiffened the plastic a little. The original HPI front end was interesting in how the springs were mounted and received input. In my experience, however, the plastic flexed so much as to make front spring changes nearly pointless.

the idea behind the damper tubes is to increase surface area so that you can use the same range of oils you would in your crc 12th & wgt cars.

The front end with the exception of the spindle is from the team saxxo F180 and looks great with a 90s era body. From what I saw during their development the car looks to be a solid contender and a good choice for someone just getting into f1. The downside is that it seem any better than most of the cars released in the last 5 years or so.

The problem with the flexy HPI plastic was the lower arm...the CRC has a solid carbon fiber non-moving lower arm...shouldn't be a problem on this car.

If it is the team saxo front end, then it should be ok.
Have been running it on a F104W without any problems.
You do need to grind a bit of the front wing(Tamiya) tho to get it to fit propper.
Material is way better then the HPI or 3racing F109 that flexes to much.

Regards Roy

I was getting that impression from this interview Frank gave.

go to f1 lab and get arrows f1 decals. car is orange and black, one of the best looking f-1 cars ever, even if it was a mid pack car.

google team arrows 2002 for pictures.
