Speaking of tires... Anyone ever see their f1 tires run "flat"?

I am assuming you are not using our rims and tires. Our rims have 2 holes in them. I would bet that your rims do not and you did not put one in..........

All you need are Pit Shimizu 571 fronts and 572 rears. Tamiya TCS tires are the same and I believe the rubber CRC uses may be the same on their own rim.

Question came up about nose wings. Lexan style wings are not legal per UF1 rules. Must be a hard plastic nose wing.

Motors are 25.5. Ride height is 4mm.

Bingo!
Also the stock inserts that come with them are the ones to use.
"You will need to actually run F1" because the tire do need a little breaking in to get to their full potential.

Default Nice Day

Thanks to the Middle River guys for working on things,we had a great day of practice with the F1 cars.

Track layout was car friendly and had great flow I will be there Thursday night.

I also noticed new Traxxas Inventory so looks like things are getting better.
