Mike R,

How much of the Exotek F1R was influenced by the HPI F10? the weight distribution and crank steering allow a similar weight distribution..

I know Mike Kennedy has put in some killer performances with his Exotek FX10.

You want your tires to look like this after they are glued.


You dont want them to look like this. But they will still work if they are this way. It's just not ideal. You can get some uneven tire wear.

Spot on. Have done lots of testing with the FX10 last year so gleaned some of the findings over to the F1R Also inspired by the Corally F1 that dominated way back when

By the way just got back into town yesterday after the Christmas break. The steering set is in stock now;

New steering upgrade moves the weight balance of the car more towards the center/rear for more stability and more rear grip when used with 'shorty' type lipo packs. Shifting the weight off of the front axle noticeably smooths out the bounciness of the front of the car as well- great for outdoor or bumpy track conditions.

cool video! question, are the inserts in the tire? I'm assuming you only glue the outer flap to the outside of the rim (in the front). Forgive the ??'s I've only ever run foams on carpet and my Pits arrived today.
Thanks, Terry
