Hey guys, please excuse my ignorance but i am going to be new to F1, and making a return to on-road after about 5 years concentrating on off-road!!

Having decided on the SP-1 as my F1 of choice, what body, front, and rear wings would you guys recommend for an indoor carpet facility, and does it differ for outdoor asphalt? Does it use the same readily available wings as Tamiya's F103/F104 for example? Is the SP Mark body any good, or should i look at the F68?

Thanks in advance!!!

Scotty

F1 is on the rise here as well, the "tamiya" body sets bolt straight up (wings,etc) the body choice is up to you. The F1s running 21.5 don't see to seem to have any noticeable difference in handling characteristics (at Wodonga anyway).

Have fun!

My shipment arrived yesterday and I have already shipped 4 cars out.
I opened up a kit to check it out, and I have to say it is a great kit. I don't think that you can get better value for the money. Everything in the kit looks great, and keep in mind that I have been a die hard Tamiya guy for a long time. Speed Passion definitely did it right and hit the mark. I am going to build one up and use it to do some tire testing for Pardus, I will let you know how it goes

My preorder is still messed up. My Speedpassion account shows no record of the preorder, but I did received the email and a follow up. Still waiting patiently.

I was added to the pre-order list March 15th but I haven't received any information about availability. Is there a way to verify my name on the list?

You may want to try Brad at F1 Paintlab, he may have a kit that is not spoken for. He has already shipped mine and it should be here tomorrow. I am looking forward to the build and from what I have seen and read this looks like a great VALUE for the F1 dollar...

Thanks for calling me back to verify my address. I should see it by Thursday, and if a mailing miracle happens, maybe tomorrow.

Default My kit is here, WOW!!!!!

I got home after at 10pm after working 13 hours yesterday and on the counter was a box from F1 Paintlab. (no questions from the wife ?). After eating and changing clothes I went to the Car Room and opened the box. I just want to say that at first glance I am VERY IMPRESSED with the Speed passion SP1. Looking through the instructions and the packages in the kit in my opinion, for under $250 for this car is a true BARGAIN!!!! It looks to be quality material and I am looking forward to the build this weekend. If there is anyone on the fence about a F1 car look into this car before you make a decision. The good news is that this class is growing very fast here in the Cleveland area and over the last week four or five good racers have purchased F1 cars. The class is growing and there are several different brands of cars that will be at THE GATE. I hope that the people with this car will keep this thread towards the top so that we can get setup help.......
