This thread needs a bump. LoL
I just need some Serious help finding out what gear to get and what class it would fall into. This is what I narrowed it down too any help, advise or suggestions greatly appreciated.
Car: either F104 Pro or FX10 (hpi with exotech conversion and every hop up avaliable)
Esc and motor: I have no idea, but I do want to go brushless, and FAsst!! Always ran brushed.
Batteries: no clue, but want to go lipo, but dont know what fits or what goes with motor combo.
Servo: what fits
Tires and wheels: I understsnd tamiya and hpi hubs are different sizes, so do I stick with brand of car on wheels and both rubber or foam.
Bodies: what brand what fits with what, all I know is theres a narrow and wide 140/160 and you want a realistic paint job or solid color.e.m.
Classes: after reading this thread and trying to understand the concept of the race, this is what I gather.
Across the board car bodies must look realistic or painted a solid color. Either Tamiya or Hpi.
F1 open: anything goes (chasis, motor, esc, batts, etc., concept prototype), But you have to run rubber tires, No Foam. =F1 Open Mod, with rubber tires only.
Gp3: Any flat pan style chasis, any (motor, esc, battery) But must run Foam. =Gp3 Open Mod, pan/flat chasis, foam tires only.
Gp2: Any chasis, Except pan/flat chasis, Motor limited no boost 17.5/silver can, rubber or foam tires Allow chasis upgrades and hop ups. If enough show we split rubber and foam. = Gp2 stock class, any tire. If enough to split :Gp2 R stock, rubber tires only, Gp2 F stock foam tires only.
Gp1:Bone stock Rc Rtr, motor limit as stock Gp2, rubber tires only, No chasis upgrades, or hop up or after market parts. Maybe allow BALL BEARINGS, and any servo.
Like I said I need help. Thanks
