Racing is much closer in the F1 class than any other class out there... I predict a very big F1 surge(over 50 entries)in the near future...

So now I wait till the 20th. Once I see turnout and hopefully get few laps I'll decide if I jump right into first race. Couldn't resist going back to the concrete last night.

I may have missed it but can these cars be run successfully in a parking lot environment or do they require a very smooth surface?

Yes and no. Yes they can. I've been running mine on a few different surfaces. Last 2 videos I posted here are on concrete. Great grip, but I can see the marks on the chassis, and motor from it. I'll be racing on asphalt this summer. But with out it being prepped for race day it's a bit of a challenge. Doesn't take much to spin. Even just under braking going.
Smoother the surface is better. Very low ground clearance.

The rougher the surface, the softer the setup. Out door mostly requires a good setup with a higher ride height and the right tires. And a good chassis protector.

The RC10F6 is very competitive at our local track. Places in the top 5 every week. I am looking forward to heading out to other area tracks to see if it holds there also. I would really like to get the aluminum chassis for a second build!

Let us know how it goes! Mike's sending me one now. Hoping to get it in place by Sunday's race!

Fully scrubbed in tires and some consistent lap times with the new car last night. I ran it between rounds during our short racing program. It needs the new power plant and the correct gearing, but was running roughly the same lap times as the WGT-R cars at the track with the Novak Boss in place. With the new motor and right gearing it should be a tick of the clock or two faster. I'm ready to head out of town for a race on Saturday.

Did you have the Novak boss on the analyzer ??? What was your timing/gearing ???
I had mine at 45 degrees and 2.63fdr with small 61 mm tires. I had no punch and not enough speed down the straight against the Mc2 competitors.... I have since lost 15 grams of rotational mass with a roller diff and aluminum dogbones vs the stock gear diff and steel outdrives, but I think increasing esc punch might be the way forward....

I run the mc2 full punch. Also trust their recommended fdr range of 2.9-3-2 for the 25.5.

I thought it was too short initially and geared it traditional around 2.6 and it didn't like it (heat). These things like to rev out. Think I'm at 3.0 amp draw as well. Strong and fast with a fan around 130.

Don't time by amp draw with this motor. 42-47 should be more than adequate. I've done major testing with this motor since the Snowbirds to help Paul understand it and F1. It does things different in the F1 vs a sedan. Don't ask me why, but Paul could explain to those that really want to know.

But you are certainly right in your experience with it now that this motor loves rpm. I recorded all my testing on my Tekin RS and Hotwire. On my track at Thunder Rc I was seeing rpms in the upper 13000 range and doing this over 10-12 min with about 6-700 rpm fade at the end of my sessions.
