the awesomatix of the F-1 !

no sidelink ! ( bearing system )

perfect f-1 but not for beginner !
How are u running your battery? Inline or transverse? Which car did you previously own? So Corning speed is improved
The chassis looks like its not durable. Have you crashed the car?

inline with servo in front

VBC FX - FXM -FX18
Yokomo YR-10
Roche EVO F-1
Infinity IF11
Serpent SF4

the chassi is very solid the front end is hard like the IF11 monococ

the corner speed of the SF4 and the IF11 are almost the same but the sf4 seem to be more precise !

Factory driver are not a very good comparative... I never drive or own a CRC F1 but a guy at my local track have one and the front of the car broke like a glass when he crash it.... but the car is fast !

Can I ask what surface you are running on, and how does it compare to the Roche EVO F1?

used x1 2017. Probably the best deal going right now. Parts interchange with 2018 and 2019 versions.

First F-1 ever? Doesn't really matter as long as your local hobby store stocks parts. Both good cars, AE cheaper parts, x-ray little more refined. Both similar performance
