Default looking for 1/10 electric formula 1

Does anyone know about a F1 kit thats still available?

Tamiya long ago discontinued F103 and F201, since then I have not been able to find any competitive F1 kit.

Rumors are also appreciated.

I checked in corallyusa.com and they do have an F1 chassis, but it seems it is not available in the US. Does someone know where can I get it in the US?

Buy a F103 GT and hit ebay for the shell and wheels/adaptors. Hell, try and buy a NIB from ebay anyways....

Damn, now I want one again

Hey Pepe, how about these: AE/Keil RC10F1, HPI Super F1 and their exclusive F1 carbon inner body for tamiya f1(pardon for Akura 2, I took the picture from him) and CROSS Fireforce F1:

Thanks to everybody, most of the information has been very helpfull. The problem is that I am trying to get many people to run this cars, so the kit shouldnt be discontinued and should come complete. The christian keil kit is a little far, the HPI no longer exists, the cross no longer exists, the cars from www.indycars.com do not come complete, etc, etc, etc.

Does anyone know a complete kit in the US or if tamiya has plans to release a new F1?

No, I think it's impossible wait to happen for, Tamiya guys did not show nothing special about these kind you are meaning on their national Hobby Show, maybe the market reasons, the only way it's just to buy a F201 or a F103, then modified it as you can. I personally like F201 due it is easier to drive so it's lack to have improvement with it, but F103 it's more funny because it has a lot of aftermarket parts to purchase, there are a lot brands, even small or big ones still releasing new parts for them, for example: Kawada, Cross, 3racing and the newest one which I have found already - TRG(Technical Racing Gear) with a lot of great option parts then you can try on the site of below, it's japanese's, of course it is unworthy, at least just take a look due you are from US and also some photos i have took again from other guy:
