If you really want to race, and your track doesn't use TCS rules,
MLP R/C Motorsports INT is the way to go! We have the fastest F201's out there, and every one is hand made to perfection! Our customer/tech support is 24/7, unlike any company out there.

Go buy a Tamiya F201(4wd) or Tamiya F103(2wd). F103s can be found cheap on ebay, but parts are getting harder to find. The F201 is 4wd and I just picked one up for myself, but haven't run it yet. The thing is just so cool with the way the suspension is setup and seems to be the favorite choice among F1 r/c racers.

If you want to hop it up, get yourself a kit F201 and then gradually turn it into either a 3racing (if you can find the chassis) or a MLP F201.

From stock the F201's have a lot of options which you are able to use to make it peform better

If the MLP F201 could be converted into a touring car..now that would rock!!!

NO!! if you do that think about buying a new car, cause the gears are all plastic and it will burn your gears, diffs, outdrives, hubs and im betting much more (this is for tcs legal cars, for modded cars i guess but you would have to change a bunch of stuff)

Basically, if you want to run high power setups, or simply run the fastest laps, it comes down to power application/handling. The Tamiya F201 is a good car, but it has lots of flex, certain parts break easily, and you really have to upgrade it to make it capable. The MLP F201 is not about having the nicest looking car (although it is! ), but it is about having everything designed to a certain tolerance. The victory Marty is referring to, I was running an MLP F201 SCF-PRO, with an Aon Electric 5800kv brushless motor, Castle Creations Mamba Max ESC, and Thunder Power 11.v 3-cell li-po batteries. If you put that setup in a stock F201, it would blow up !
Anyways, with all the money you'll spend hopping up your F201, you might as well buy an MLP F201 and save yourself all the trouble.
