Well finally RCMart got their shipment in, pre orders sent (will have mine next week) but no remaining stock for anyone looking for them cheaper than the American stores.

Several Brit's and American's were waiting for that shipment as well, so it went straight 'Out of stock' again.

Thankfully two of us also had our orders in before that shipment.

Use GRP tyres: they are better than RIDE on CRC carpet.

I was told by Mark Green last night whilst we were messing around with F1's that they only had one compound, preglued and pre-run in as well.
He said they were the first F1 tyres he'd tried that were good straight out of the packet
He tried the GRP's, Ride's and Pit Shimizu back to back whilst we were there.

He was also testing Serpent's new prototype car and 3D printed front wings.

Any suggestions on where I might get GRP tires in the US?
Also, who drove other F1 cars before getting the X1? Which F1 cars did you race?

I don't know if anybody sells GRP in the US.

Before getting the X1, I raced with these 5 F1 cars (reverse chronological order):
  1. Tamiya F104W GP Edition
  2. Exotek F1R
  3. Tamiya F104 X1
  4. HPI Formula Ten
  5. Tamiya F103

1st f1: 3Racing FGX. Handled well but front arms were fragile.

2nd f1: Tamiya F104 Pro V2. Great car (And i still run it from time to time).
