Okay, that will speed up things for me actually. I'm already looking for Super Shorty pack... Amain has an LRP on sale (practically free) but I like the Arromax stuff.

So, I'll take that as no, you haven't built the car and no, you don't know how well it will perform?

Lot of questions, trying to answer to all of them.

Of course, mimic a 60's car means that the car must to be wing less. The front bumper is made in carbon fibre and is almost un-noticeable for the eyes, but make his job.
Maybe, can be a little larger than that or can be made in transparent lexan
Front arms are the proven Tamiya F104, which are extremely good in terms of lifetime and can held a signficant amount of abuse before need to be replaced.

During the development of the model, we drive in different tracks, keeping the usual configuration, in order to have constant results
Fenix 21.5, fixed endbell,
Hobbywing Justock ESC 45a no timing
Hobbyking 2600 supershorty lipo pack
Ride R1
in this configuration we meet easily more than 15 minutes per pack.

Most of the times, we've bind 2 radio (pistol and stick) to give the chance to the track guest to have few laps with it. As you can imagine, level of the drivers, vary from Pro to Amateur.
This allow us to see, few things:
Fun factor and lifetime of the components. And both were extremely high.

Performance compared with a "conventional" F1....
Classique was not made with idea to be any faster than any given modern F1. Is in a class on his own and should be judged in his class only.
Definitely, I'd rate the handling of the model: extremely good and quite realistic.

US distribution. CRC is Fenix distributor for some products we made, but not for all of them. I'll have a chat with them to see how the would consider the Classique.
Nevertheless, will be available at Fenix USA. Of course, can be always purchased in our webshop.

Price. is still to TBA, but will be something "logical"

I say silver can motors and fixed gearing with spec tires. Motors should be stock out of box and handouts.

Thanks for the basic info. I’m not finding Fenix USA, keeps going to a flashlight company. If someone has a link please post it. Just my opinion here. But availability will play a big factor if this is to be more then just a few local groups racing them. So far in my limited time racing, I’m finding that if it’s not easy to get. People will just move on to something that is. I wouldn’t be too concerned about what motor till then.
