Head up from Australia! - YES MLP is running chassis down under



We have been running a pair of Marty's F201SLCF1 (ladder pack) chassis and loving them very much.

Even with Driver error the chassis regulary podeums both drivers. Local state titles in a little over a week will see them tested against the best in the region. Should see some trophies for these cars then.



Also - one more warm up meet next tuesday and it'll be the first run with Marty's new F201 Foam tyres on two cars both with Ingracing.com sports tuned motors.


Expecting big things. Hope to be surprised.


And as for the F206f1...... thats not that far away either from making a trip to Australia and spreading the MLP brand name further.

What wheels fit on the car? I see you have the HPI's on it but is it actually driveable with them on it?

I have only run them out front on the street they were fun to run and worked good out there as for on a track in a race I have No clue but you can put the F201 wheels and tires on it. Touring hub just like the F201.

I used them on the top secret Traxxas X-F1 prototype ( Marty thinks it's silly...it is. ) and they worked great. Passed a lot of people in the main since they actually hooked up better than I thought they would. Then again, slow cars handle better right! I am going to use them again this week with a mod motor. I let you know how they work then.

Here are some pics with the blacked out wheels and the Stock Tamiya wheel with Ride Tires!

Next I have said in the past that we are going to make Slick tires for the F206F1 cars and wheels are in the works! They will also fit the MLP F201 cars and the Tamiya F201. in the size of the F201 Tire. I told everyone last year after the USGP I had got a chance to talk with a person in F1 and they told me back then that F1 would be going to a 1 tire supplier and a slick for 2007 but no later than 2008.

We will do the same here in R/C F1

The New wheel From MLP will have the tire and wheel made just like the HPI wheel tire as in shape inner sidewall of the tire low and outter wide to keep the F1 wheel look! in chrome and matte/chrome and black/Chrome finish!

Dang Marty, that is tooooo trick! When can I get some of those wheels and tires? Do you ever sleep? Also what is the story for foams for the MLP car? So far the rubber tires have worked great but you know how one asphalt track is different from another only 20 miles apart. Keep hammering out those cars. The world needs them. Ok, maybe hammering was a bad choice of words . You know what I mean. Sic'em!

Foams are done as stated before I have 20 sets on order of just the tire and then we will need to mount and glue and true them but not in yet,!

Thinking I have way to much to do here.

I have been using foams ( on the F2001 ) for 3 years now. A local hobby shop would make them up for us ( $40) for a set of 4, we would have to supply the rims though...
