Great looking car and great features! I only have 2 minor issues with the car...the first is it looks like 185mm is the minimum you can take the width to instead of 180mm like the Tamiya. For the most part this shouldn't be an issue as most races seem to favor 190mm as the max width but there may still be a few clubs running a 180mm rule. The second is the left side rear axle looks a bit more exposed than the Tamiya and may be prone to bending or breaking.

How do you secure the motor with only the one screw?

Yes, 190mm is actually the MOST ppl will use if that is the RULE allowed. But in order to use 180mm, I think most ppl will end up using F104 front end for it. Our chassis is interchangeable for F103 F104 parts on the front end. But..if the rule is not saying 180mm or nothing, why would you want to use narrow front end and prepare for lots of traction rolling...

I think it will survive..........

There are 2 screws at the bottom of the motor mount to secure the motor...not just 1.

We will have a optional silver can motor mount for spec brushed motor that required 2 up and down motor holes.

Ah! I didn't see a second screw hole due to the contrast of black on black in the photo. I see it's similar to the mounting on the AE TC6.1.

That is even better....the SP-1 will fit any rubber tires. When using the 185mm F/R setting even with the TCS tires and will fit the 190mm rule.

However, I want to know is there any concern about being OPEN TIRES..? Does some of the RIDE, Pit Shimuzu or TRG brand has wide offset or something odd..? I know RIDE just release the +3mm for the Japan open class market...but I doubt those will be used in USA.

We need to keep the F1 the new narrow look instead of the F103 old school Senna format....

Good idea! It would be great to finally see a car come out of a box that needs only a receiver to run out front from the start.

Actually, it need battery....if LIPO is what most ppl want to use (LIPO is hard to ship via AIR now a day)....Radio, is 2.4 with LCD screen, it is not some cheap stuff. car is READY to race with SP Reventon Stock Club Race ESC along with V3 competition 21.5 motor that match most of the F1 rule around the world.
