I ordered some Pardus racing tire set and some SXT2.0 sauce in hopes of getting with the program.. wondering if this will help and also is there an advantage to groved tires?
What kit do you have? I am new to the F1 cars so not able to identify by eye. It looks great!

Do I need to glue the ends of the 1032 foam inserts together - or just stuff them inside the tire? Thanks!

yes glue the ends and best to use contact cement or something similar.... I use 3M 08001 weather strip adhesive from the auto store

Hi guys,Im looking to buy a F1 Chassis for the first time. I have only been playing drift cars for the past 1 year now looking into getting into F1.
Im hoping to get some advices from the pros here,thinking of F104 pro,F104-X1,F104 Ver II or serpent F110.

Could anyone give me some advices which one should I be buying ?

Track in sydney allows all kind of F1 in 21.5 or 17.5 class so it all comes down to which car is better to play.

Any input are appreciated.

Thank you

You can't go wrong with a Tamiya F104v2 Pro. I have run mine a few times and it is great. The only thing I would upgrade is the rear motor mounts to aluminum pieces (something like: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ...yword=&pg_no=1).

I did some videos of this car when I got it if it helps, including my first race with tips and things:

Default Shimizu tires

Hi all. I'm getting started into F1 racing. I have a F104 v2. Looking at using Shimizu tires. The track I would race on warrants soft tires. I could use some advice on which type of soft shimizu tire to use. What is the difference between rear r1 soft and the rear r3 soft? Thanks.
