Default D-Drive F1 ? From MLP!

Here we have our prototype into D-Drive cars.

It is a Chassis kit or a complete Roller car.

So you can upgrade your F103GT to the New Wheel base and width of our MLP F1 Cars Wheels and Bodies. or run the Older Tamiya F201 Wheels tires and Bodies.

Lower Chassis 2mm upper Chassis 1.5mm Most of the after market parts for the F103GT will work on this car.

It has a upper and lower Chassis and a dual ball pivot T/plate setup.

kit will come with a body Tamiya or MLP (witch ever is in stock at time of your order. and a set of Wheels and tires (Ride)

Please let me know what you think.

Keep your eyes open on our New D-Drive touring car as well. 3X3 and Side by Side Cell setup Chassis for the F103GT. Coming SOON!!!!

Feel better Thanks!

As for the F103 it was a good fun car But Now with the new F103GT I have made a chassis in the same shape as our F1 cars and added a New upper plate Chassis that will have the body monts made into it, a split 3X3 Battery setup and a side by side Cell set as well.

Plus this is the same wheelbase as the F201 and not the shorter F103 F1 or GT.

I have moved the weight forward to take away some of the steering so the rearend will not come around as easy!

Forgot this The Upgrade Chassis kit to take your F103 or F103GT into a MLP F1 D-Drive car you will only be able to get at www.gadgetworks.biz and he will have a complete host of hopups as well. as for a complete roller it will only come from us at www.mlpmotorsports.net both should be out Oct 1st 2006!

Good to hear Marty.... They have me on steroids (too bad they aren't anabolic) now... Hahaha...


I wish more people would get back into GTP or F1, I'm so tired of watching Taxi's and grocery getters running around the track...

You and me both Bud! I think the touring thing has gone on for far to long!

GTP and F1 RWD Cars were a blast to run back in the day.

But it was all on carpet. LOL

Here with this running the F201 Tires it works great on the outdoor tracks.

Plus I think what we do with the F206F1 and New 2007 Champ car and Wheels and Tires will open a New GTP/LMP car class using our Chassis F206F1/207Champ car and tires Rubber Belted Radial slicks and 40mm rears and 28mm to 30 mm fronts and short wide control arms and a wide Chassis with a full suspension Chassis like our F206F1 and Not a T/Plate. Would make a great GTP Car. Plus the Jag and C11 Tamiya bodies fit great plus I will be talking with a person on making LMP Type bodies or we my make them our selfs!

Marty, you are my hero...

The funny thing is this who TC craze started because you could run them on unprepared surfaces (parking lot racing.) Now the only place you see them run is on prepared tracks... Time to bring back RWD GTP and whoop some TC butt!!!

Marty:

Hi,

(again) keep it up..... all those sweet looking cars. my son saw your DD F1 car and went NUTS. he had just started to get interested in R/C when the F1 started to fade away up here. I had 3 103's and a HPI Super F1 (wish I had never sold that car). so he had played with spec sedans for a while waiting for the F1's to return.... now he's racing Taxi cabs and a little 1/12th scale at CEFX.
I have a pan touring car that I'm getting ready to run as a cheaper,funner (sp??) class to taxi's. I hope it picks up.
but your car are just plain beautiful. this and your GTP/LMP, your other F1's and your sedan. I think I'll need ot come work for you just so I can get all those cars!!!!

Thanks

P.S.

really glad your feeling better.

Last night, my wife and I were sitting in the living room and I said to her,
"I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine
and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug."

She got up, unplugged the TV and then threw out my beer

From my Wife

This is how it will work you can go to gadgetworks.biz and order a upgrade kit for your F103GT or F103 ok he will carrie the kits! it will come with all of the parts you need to change over to a F1 car.

Carbon fiber chassis body kit wheels and tires and all the hardware needed!
