Another quick question, what's some good baseline gearing for F2 and F1? I know motors are different...will be starting with the Trinity 25.5 n F2.

UPDATE, nvm found a setup sheet from the first race so will use that as a baseline.

Default Fomula E

Is the Formula E going to happen at the next race?

And is the new rules correct?
So that Toyota Gazoo LMP body is legal?
21.5 Just Stock motor (Changed from 17.5 in the exibition)

Default UF1 LMP Class

So since now its USGT and LMP bodies. Wouldn’t it be fair to let both bodies race in the same class at the same time, but score them with LMPs awarded 100 thru 0 points and USGTs awarded 50 thru 0 points per Amain race. Everyone would get to race with the same spec electronics, spec tires, spec motor and 1500g minimum. This way those who are eyeing the LMP championship could race worry free for the whole season. You could score Top 3 for LMP and Top 3 for USGT in podiums

Too much work IMHO. Maybe change to a spec chassis, f103gt or Tc01 which both fit under the gazoo body.

Default Fantasy F1 Standings

Here is a chart with the current points standings after 6 races with the rc points system converted to the real Formula One system. No bonus points for Body, Halo, Number or Tail Lights. It's quite interesting because it's very different to the RC version. Just something fun to ponder and you can see all of the podium finishers are in the top 8 (Note that Fastest Laps are in Bold and Podiums are cell colored for Gold Silver and Bronze)

Just wow LOL

I always wanted to try a Season with this kind of scoring system but thought it might be disheartening to those that don't score points. I think the DNF part would be cool as well and would REALLY shake the standings up if you received ZERO points for a DNF instead of last place points (in the current system).

Cool chart!

Default Possible LMP Bodies?

Just throwing out some ideas, maybe for the future. Anyhow, I stumbled on these two LMP bodys still in production today from the USA by Mccalister RC. These 2 bodies in particular are:
  • 190mm in width
  • 255mm wheelbase
  • Clear the rear shock towers
  • Can fit just about any touring car
It would be super cool.
Maybe the Spec Tamiya TC-01 Toyota Gazoos can be the European Lemans Prototype Category.
Maybe the Open Touring Cars can be the American Daytona Prototypes Category with Chevys Vs Fords

Default Revelation Raceway Layout

Hey everyone, here is the current layout for Christmas 2022 (Unlikely to change, but it might change for Januarys UF1 Race 4)
Anyhow, the current layout is rather technical and runs clockwise.

Track features are starting the lap with a large straight away with a pretty hefty concrete bump into turn 1 for a large righthand sweeper. Followed by a anti camber switchback into a mini midfield straightaway with another helfty concrete bump into a hairpin left. The infield section is riddled with a large green painted area that can be a bit slippery followed by a double apex right around the light pole. Then you are gretted by the most notorious part of the layout known as the death chicane. This back straight chicane is pretty difficult to do fast but it's entirely posile straightline it if you are in the right spot. You definetly don't want to hit either side and you can really lose or make alot of lap time here. Finally, the lap is ended with a triple hairpin sector right-left-right and onto the start finish line.

Practice times are weekdays from 11am to 5pm and weekends from 9am to 5pm (Sunsets at 4:30pm)
Track is typically not blown off or sauced on non-racedays unless you stop by the hobby shop (Or ask track operator) and politely ask

Default UF1 22/23 Race 4 Weather

So looks like an entire 10 days leadings towards the raceday is completely forecast to be raining. Of course this could change, but it's looking pretty grim for race day or anyone looking to get some practice in

Default Fantasy F1 Standings & Statistics



New fantasy standings are in and boy is there huge changes for the top 5
  • Mike R making a huge comeback after a race 6-9 slump and having the most wins of the season at 5.
  • Brian R still the driver with the most podiums without a win this season
  • The top 9 in the standings still hold all of the podium finishes from the field
  • Race 11 is the only race in which every driver finished the race this season
  • There's still 234 maximum points left with 9 races to go, so everyone is still mathamatically in the hunt for the drivers championship (Though the top 5 have pulled away significantlly)

  • So after 12 of 21 races Phillip E takes over the most completed laps this season with help of completing every single race this year without mechanical failures
  • Only 3 drivers have finished every race this season
    • Phillip E, Thad G & Brian M
  • Shockingly Mike R and Aaron L dont even crack the top 10 in laps completed this season even though they have the most wins this year. Imagine the how different the points standings would be if they both hadn't missed a whole 3 races each
