I actually started work on my MP-24/25 starting with a F60 bodyset but i'm not going to put too much work into it as it's going to be my racebody. Still trying to figure out that red color but i'll probably end up using the red wing decals from the F60 and red paint to match.
The paint I use for the red is Tamiya Flourescent Red
I have vinyl to match the paint, I also have the chrome vinyl for the front wing

By the way, I am working on getting some very realistic carbon fiber decal material. Its more a matter of when than if. When I get it I will make it available to the masses for $7 shipped. It will be sold in 5X11 sheets.
PM me if you are interested

Got the "f107" done yesterday.
Took it out for a few laps on a local smooth blacktop.
Feels like it has more steering than the 103 (assuming that's due to the new battery placement).
Can't wait to get it out on the track.

So does anyone know if a 21.5T Novak Crawler Brushless motor would be suitable for an F103RM?

I want a relatively "stock" motor comparable to a silver can, and I get the feeling that a 21.5 is about right. However, I don't know what difference the Novak Crawler motor would have from a normal on-road Brushless motor.

Speedtech has this motor on sale for $39.99 right now, so figured it might be a good buy for this old F103RM that I have...

No affiliation to Speedtech - just wondering if it is a good option.

Thanks!

Hi, don't really post on this thread but I keep an eye on it. Love F1 and hoping to make it a part of our club racing at some point.

Personally, I'd suggest the new 25.5. I think you'll find the combination of the Havoc Pro esc and the 25.5 a perfect choice for F1. Honestly, the 21.5 might be to much. Speaking from experience as we race VTA class and have been using 21.5 and now going to the 25.5 to adhere to the upcoming rule changes.

nothing wrong with it per say, it will just be a very torquey motor...and might have a slightly less top-end then the on-road 21.5

but yes, a 21.5 is very close to the silver can motors

Our club ran a TC trail with 21.5 Brushless v Silvercan, and the results were that the brushless 21.5 was about 1 sec and more a lap quicker, and this was in the hands of some handy drivers.

Those that took part in the trial believe that a 25.5 would be better suited to a Silvercan motor then the 21.5, so if your competing against those with silvercan, I would suggest 25.5.

I run a tekin 21.5 in my F104 and it's a lot of fun. I don't lose that much speed to the guy's running 17.5's in their car's on the twisty medium size tracks, but the bigger track's the difference in more noticable of course.

Another option is the Tamiya sport tuned black motor.
Think they are right around $25/30 bucks and you can run any speedo and no
need to worry about checking folks for boost/timing.
Speed would be about the same as a 21.5.

Personally after going through 5 or 6 silvercans since indoor season I would not mind if my local track wants to switch over to brushless. (I had a different opinion earlier this year )

No need to worry about that with the Novac Havoc or Havoc Pro as neither is "tuneable". Some of this discussion is very similar to the VTA thread. Since we've adopted the VTA program we're tied to the 25.5. One of the biggest influences on performance for us is the track layout. Comments on the VTA thread have made note that this more "realistic" type racing begs for more "realistic" type tracks. We found that our 25.5 cars were turning lap times within 1-1.5 seconds of our 17.5 RCGT cars averaging 2-3 laps less over a 5 minute run. So track design helps and keeps it more about driving than overall speed capability.
When we're able to offer F1, we'll go 25.5 with all 3 of our classes; VTA, Vintage Oval and F1. Should be fun !
