Default Fenix Mistral 3.3 1/10th F1 Racing Kit

Just announced - Brand new 1/10th F1 chassis from Fenix Racing - the successor of Mistral 2.0: Mistral 3.3

Mistral 3.3 keep the V-link suspension at the rear, as we found to be extremely tuneable to every grip condition. But still, weve done quite an improvement at the front end. Of course we kept the major features of Mistral 2.0, such as:
  • Camber adjustable by turnbuckles
  • Static caster is adjustable via dedicated shims
  • Adjustable dynamic caster value
New Mistral 3.3 features include
  • Wheelbase is now adjustable in step of 5mm for a range of 10mm.
  • Best part is that change the wheelbase require just a couple of minutes and no setup, via the use of a 2.5mm carbon frame subframe that carries all the front-end components.
  • This feature, allow the servo to be fixed in the lowest possible position, allowing a super low Center of Gravity.
  • Main chassis is made of 3mm carbon fibre, this allow us to pocket the battery area, keeping the lipo extremely low, again in the quest of the lowest CoG possible.
  • Great feature is that changing the wheelbase, will not require different body holes.
FenixRacingUSA is initially bringing in the Short Wheelbase + Gear diff configuration of the Mistral 3.3 - Fenix Mistral 3.3 1/10th F1 Racing Kit Short Wheelbase Carbon Chassis Gear Diff
  • Short wheelbase chassis allows for 3 different wheelbase changes - total wheelbase of 265-260-255mm
  • Gear diff comes with 64 pitch 90 tooth spur gear

Don't expect to see cars pics.... because everyone there was unhappy to have their "secret stuff" pictured...

Still, some nice pic of the track and of the area....

Extremely happy... The boys were doing an excellent job and get a well deserved prize.

I personally love this car, super durable, and front suspension settings stay in place as you set them. I struggled at Coral Springs high grip surface due to using a gear diff that was too light on the oil side.

At Valkaria the Mistral 3.3 is legit, but as goes with F1in general………tires tries tires

IFMAR F1 World Cup 2022 is in the book...
Cool… and you write a post over an event about 10 days later?

Yes, somehow I need things to settle down, to avoid writing too much or not enough.
So, I decide just to talk about Fenix.

This evening a fellow driver told me…
"Giorgio, WTF, 2 Mistral in the F1 A-Main! You should be more than happy”

So, I start to realize that… 2 Mistral in the A-Main… 7 Mistral in the F1, probably we were the largest group in F1…

Something like the “The Knights of the quest”.

For a very small family company, it is an huge accomplishment. No doubt.
2 cars in the A-main, with a competitive pace… very competitive
Bryan Ferrara close the mains with a pretty impressive score 4th- 4th - 3rd position, 5th overall.
Alessandro Manciocchi get is 8th overall position.

Well, we all, probably deserve a Cigar….
