What batteries do most of the drivers favor in this series? I noticed on the UF1 website that you have to run 190mm chassis. Is that the case in the Midwest series? Thanks.

Most of us run shorty packs. I use Trakpower.

Yes, max width is 190mm.

About a week and a half till Round 4 at Harbor Hobbies, sorry for the lack of posting on here, the TCS Nats and IIC have pretty much devouered my time over the last couple of months.
I want to announce that for the next 2 rounds every driver will receive a new set of tires with their entry compliments of Pardus Racing.

Great news!!! I am hoping for strong turnouts in both classes. We will have some great prizes to give out as well.
I just returned from the Halloween Classic, we had 18 F1 cars there and a great weekend of racing. Looking forward to running with the UF1 crew again, its been awhile.
