Well there has been a link on my page for D-Drive for almost 2 years now and the parts you show there have been on there Website for about the same amount of time

I have tried to get someone to send the parts here to the US but no luck as of yet!

I wonder if those parts could be made to work on Associated style pan cars?

Well B3x I am working on it or I was just to busy to get back to it!

We will also have a complete kit to turn your F103GT into a F1 car.

With the same wheel base and track as the F201 F201SCFPRO (MLP) F206F1 (MLP)

same wheels and tires and bodies!

The bodies look great, and have taken out concourse in the ACTMCRC State titles, the only place in Australia where F1 is still run on a regular level.

The McLaren F1 body looks awesome, the pictures just dont do the body justice

I can't find a way to describe how the car ran Saturday. When I stop hyper ventilating I will give you a call. Trust me, it was awsome! I think I'm having way to much fun with this. Also the latest points for the F1 tour are posted on our site. Now we start the out of town part of the tour. We will pick up a ton of drivers when that starts. See Ya!

hey you... I'm thinking about taking my F201(and putting a better motor and sticky tires on it) and my Super F1 out of the mothballs.. and maybe taking it to So Cal... long time no see... how's it hanging Bunta?

it's your fault I bought the F201 in the first place..

too bad it's a dog out of the box... but I'll work on it

Hows things?
Yeah too bad there's no f1 class around here.
My f201 is a static display model now. The first time out it was super fast and i was turning inside some of the tc at the tamiya track. then after a couple of runs, hits and heat. the top plate is warped which allowed the swhocks to rub, the wood scews stripped out and I have a couple of bent arms. It's not worth it to rebuild because it will all happen again. Cheap tamiya plastic. I will be saving up my pennies for one of Marties f1s. He has a direct drive in the works too.

I'll be running at tamiya tcs this weekend.
later,
wn

Wish I could go to TCS this weekend... I'm going to be in San Diego for the Comicon on Sunday...

do they still have the pan car class at So Cal?


they said I could race my Super F1 with them if I wanted to....

it's a rocket on that track with just a Monster Stock Pro

My F201 was such a dog out of the box with the stock silver can and stock tires that I ended up putting it on the shelf... but I have a new brushless motor and those new HPI vintage wheels and tires to put on it......... I think that will bring it back to life

Hey.. you're running one of those new F103GT cars in the race?.... How is it so far?
