Since TCS no longer runs in my region of canada our f1 has been open to all makes and models.

Even if you had to stick to a direct drive solid axle car i would still be interested to see what you came up with......alot of manufacturers are makiing F1s now so i would love to see an awesomatix F1 most definately.

These are the rules that most of the midwest is going by: http://uf1rc.com/rules-and-regulations/

I think if you did make one the biggest factor is making the width adjustable. Seems that wider tends to be better, but most rules have a 190mm max.

This is what is run in my area: UF1 MIDWEST

Talking

Finished the roller ! I'll do electronics another day.....lol.... I guess my kit was special . I had to improvise alot and put my own screws, wheel nuts, antenna tube, and lots of 3x15mm screws where I was missing some of the 3x10s....
On a positive note though, the gear diff got smooth with some more fiddling with it...
It is still by far the best and strongest kit I've seen so far, and I could really crank stuff up without any fear of stripping , but I took my time on this build , alot more than my tc4s..... Happy Racing guys.... I got to get some rest now....

If the people where I live have any idea how much this kit costs, they will do more than snapping pictures, and I won't be smiling..... I smile in private though, and tell them I only own Radioshack toys...lol... No question about it, it's my best Rc purchase ever !!!!!! Ahahahah.....hihihihi....

Good Luck !!! Happy Racing!!

Thanks for the Awesomatix (USA) team for helping me out for the parts and I think I finally finished (almost...still waiting for some little parts from mail) the roller and will be ready for the electronics...it is by far the longest time that I have spend on 1 RC kit and I hope it is well worth it....road test will tell.

I also used a parma 3x8 universal bumper cut to fit, but the One I got was on the soft side... If you get a hard One, it will add some more protection in the front end.... It also need 3x15mm screws to squeeze the foam tight....

I have seen posts on here about people using the ball diff with 1,000,000 in the front. I was wondering there is an advantage to this vs a gear diff running heavy oil. I will be running on carpet. Most of the people where I race use a gear diff in the front with 500k+ oil.

I plan on going to the Halloween Classic at the Gate and was wondering if anyone else is. It would be cool pitting by some fellow Awesomatix drivers if so. I will try not to ask 2 many questions but I am sure I will have a few because I won't get to run the car very many times prior to this race.

I think they'll be 5 or more people there with this car. PM Mike Hanulec he should know those that are going. Adam Brown and myself will be there from Colorado.
