Nonetheless, an impressive effort by you, CUDA.

Hey, thanks Champ, car has been e z to drive right out of the box on asphalt and now carpet.

And how bout you on pace to win it on rubber? Whoa.

We're all lucky you aint choosin foams AND F103.
That'd pretty much be game over but you've been there and done that.

And by the way, thanks for choosing foam and F104 instead of F103 at the Regionals.

Not sure about the whole car but the battery is only 4oz

The 104 on rubber did handle very well though, just was a second a lap too slow.

Wow talk about carpet burn, too cool all of the foam tire burn-off on the HPI car.

Nice work - was thinking of doing this colour scheme aswell, think you've just convinced me. Where did you get the decals?

Has anyone (track) tried to pull off 1:1 style F1 qualifying?

I was thinking about a way to do it but worry that guys would
gear up and tire up for a fast qualifying hot lap and tame things down for the main.

I would guess you could lock folks into whatever gearing/tires they used for the hot lap. Or average out their top three laps?

Might be fun to try one weekend at a club race.

Another problem is what to do with heats. The slow guys (who need the most track time) would be shut out after 1st q.round.
