Maybe on the next sunday Electric race..

Here's some pics of my new ride..
Plus the Tamiya link front suspension that will fit with no mod.
and a couple left over bodies from my F103 that should fit with little modification. Still have an unpainted Williams BMW that I want to put on.

might be a little too small. Servo mounts made for std and low profile servos. It could work with some modification.

The 3racing is more flexible than the Tamiya front end.

I've got a question is all that blue bling aluminium stuff already included in the kit, or do i have to buy it separately? if included in the kits i think this kit is more that worth for U$100 ............ it can boost up some club racing for formula-1 class

everything you see in e-clips car is included in the kit. Pre-mounted Foam tires. Body etc... Only thing I've added extra on mine is the upper suspension mount, aluminum servo arm, and F103 steering knuckle.

Anyone?

I'm trying to find the best tire combo for Asphalt racing. I'm leaning towards rubber setup as it is easier to maintain and has longer life.

So how heavy is this car compared to the F103 15th? It looks like a tank in comparison. If I can find a scale, I'll compare the two. Luckily I have tons...err, ounces of aluminum hardware to even things out. And even a graphite axle. One can learn a lot by looking at the manufacturer's website.

My F109 showed up on the doorstep this afternoon. Can't wait to build the underdog.

And yes, the 3Racing front end is flexi-flyer compared to the Tamiya graphite one, I've tried both on my 15th. About the only advantage to the 3Racing one is adjustable camber so the tires don't cone. The caster adjustment was a waste of time. You have to run much stiffer springs to make up for the flexibility. Unfortunately, much stiffer springs make the e-clip retainers pop off easier if you whack a board the wrong way, resulting in amusing traction-rolls on VHT.

I planning on running a normal stand-up servo, and not a low profile one. If it doesn't fit, well, there's always the dremel.

Don't waste your time with rubber tires with any 2WD F1 car, unless you like doing donuts. Even on an unprepared surface. Sorry. Maybe the added rear weight of this car will help.

Thanks for build pics, it will be interesting to see what this does against serious competition (i've driven almost every F1 car from the past 18 years or so...competitively). $.02 says 3Racing releases a carbon version a couple months down the road so us early adopters will buy it.
