Yep.
Track I visit has a few of the top TOP (pun intended) drivers running there.

I did ask about the f1 car and was told we should have
some more info toward the end of the month.

Guess we shall see.

Want to talk flexi-flyer check out the 109 plastic.
I think Duratrax makes it for them...

Hpi was a great front end.Light years ahead of the 103 front. Works better with orings in the bottom too.
It's tops on my "why don't they make that anymore" list.

I can only hope cross really has the tooling and is keeping an eye on the
f1 wave rolling back in.
I have a Super F1... I got it when HPI did the re-release about 6 years ago... I also got 2 more sets of front arms ()not knowing they couldn't be gotten anymore).... I guess I lucked out... I've gotta tell you... that car is amazing.. I have a 104 but I may start campaigning that again now that I found the extra arms... I may even put the Tamiya F60 front wing on it, inn order to protect the front wheels front impact

I like the fact that it can use 1/10 scale Jaco pan car foams

HPI Super F1 isnt legal for the UF1 series were running in SoCal...
I picked up a F103RM and sprinkled some love on it... It will be interesting to compare the two. The B195 Body that comes with it is so cool I don't want to use it! LOL

I know the F103 is a more nimble car , but I traded mine out to a fellow racer so he can join the f1 clan in so. cal..I wonted to focus all my attention on one chassis and see how far I can take it.Some times I wish I had it back.But I'm gonna stick to the F104 for a while then decide what to do.

Default Barcelona GP

My forecast for this weekend at Barcelona:

First Choice / Second Choice
1 Vettel or Hamilton
2 Button or Alonso
3 Kubica or Rosberg or Masa

What's yours?

Cheers!
