Default Formula 1 Electric who makes em ??

I am big fan of Formula 1 and think an RC would be good to add to my collection. I have seen Corallies new F1 racer is there any competition or are they the only company still selling Elec F1 theres some F103s on Ebay but same price as the new corally and i think Tamiya parts are hard to come bye
any info appreciated

I have the F102 (Edit: F201) and it's really nice.

This seems like a very poor copy of the F201 http://cgi.ebay.com/1-10-FORMULA-ONE...QQcmdZViewItem

Why not to think also the Tech TF108 and Cross Fire force CF-01.
If you are not only interested in complete kits, how about the Kawada, TRG and Zen upgrade kits for F103.
Aren't they so nice?
But of course you should ordering all of them in japanese online shops.
Honestly, i really wonder to have a F1, but mostly people around me only run TCs, so it's so shame!

I think the coolest electric F1 cars are hands down the MLP cars.

http://www.mlpmotorsports.net/

They haven't been making them recently but scuttlebutt is they will start again soon. Those cars are awesome.

Not yet, but will be in further moments, i saw it's appeared officially in japanese magazine which shown on some site that i don't remember.
But i guess could be very good expectation, at least in Japan, due they are having again races, so i think you should ordering from there if you really want it.
And you have to understand Tech is a small factory, so i think could be very limited in the stock, you should pay attention when they are just releasing.
Don't you see as well for TRF416, could be now totally out of stock just because the popularity and limited number in the production.(this case make so disgusting)

Wait, don't you see(Shameful, i fail also from my eyesight) it said right on the banner that i post, previewed will release in mid of May with estimated price of 19800 yens(around 175 USD), you should pay more attention in the Pro-s Futaba and RC Champ in this month if you looking for it.

Thanks for all the suggestions. hows the parts support for the Tech 108though will anyone in the U.S. carry this line. Its a real nice car but need parts support.

Whats the deal with the Tamiya F103 GT ?? is it the same Chasis as the F103 ? can an F1 body be mounted i have found these kits new

Ooops, i didn't remember RCHOBBY had announced already, in weeks ago.
Hope in HK the price could be decent, just because in Japan everything had to pay high tax.
But will have F1 races in there(?), as i saw always in HK forums with google translates, they ask always organizers for races, but later have withdrawed the idea.
