Just in time for the new season to fend off all the new F1 car releases
ETA Monday.
Hi Mike, how do you think the new thinner chassis will go in wide 103 form ?
I know you guys over there race the narrow cars, but down under we run up to 200 mm width mostly on larger tracks.

The current main deck is too wide for the tamiya bodies at the narrowing part right where the driver's butt is. I hope it has been addressed on the new version. Same with fgx chassis.

Still very beneficial if you are running on asphalt tracks. Not necessarily faster hot laps, just more consistent.

This is for function over form. The wider section near the front helps make the whole car consistent instead of only the front of the chassis flexing. Trim the body accordingly.

Hi, It's not something I make sorry. Maybe the B4 rear camber plate that is made by STRC?

Been checking the site all day and ordered it as soon as I saw availability! Are the angled side links the same 12r5 pieces or do I need to look for a different link for spares?

Thanks for always pushing the envelope.

Looking good,

is the space between the front link mounting spot to the battery the same as in the F1R original bottom plate?

Ok thank you. What's a good tire to run on in Florida for f1 on a black top parking lot. That will fit on your wheels. Pits thanks

OK I'll refrase
will the electronics that I now have between the link and the battery still fit if I switch to this new chassis?

Looks like they added F1 to the Reedy race this year. Which is also held on my home track
