Yes the birds was 1050 but our series runs 1020 . As for ride height 4mm or 5mm depends on indoors or outdoors. So I won't scrap up my chassis I put contact paper (clear) and change it all the time.

Has anyone driven the WRC F1?

How does it perform compared to the leading brands?

Ive driven the previous versions of the car and to be honest, if its setup right, its not a bad car. but when you start breaking stuff your left with no parts and having to wait weeks or months just to have it delivered...also they seem to be coming out with new versions every year just for the sake of updating the car and its getting kinda boring.

F1 gurus, looking for chassis recommendations for temporary asphalt parking lot tracks. Just wondering if there are chassis better suited to it, or any of them pretty much work, just down to setup?

On asphalt, cars that generate more rear grip seem best. The Serpent, Fenix and Schumacher should have more rear grip. I haven't seen the Schumacher f1 in action, but if it's like their 1/12 it will be locked in

Thanks for the response.

Any truth to a T-bar suspension being better for asphalt vs link? Or is that old thinking? Seems most have gone to the link rear suspension.

I think the link has more to do with brick style lipos being almost all that's available.

I think the T bar has advantages on asphalt. I know I had talked to Jim Dieter about t bars on asphalt in the context of F1 one time, and he said he felt a Tbar made more grip.

The T bar definitely handles better but usually breaks very easily in a crash, which is why most folks go with links because of much better reliability

Out of all the cars I have run my F103 has the most locked in rear of any car I have tried. When coupled with a narrow f104 or crc style front end its very good in extra poor grip conditions. As soon as the grip comes up to a raceable level though its just doesnt have the corner speed of the newer cars. Easy to drive and very forgiving but not competative on pace.
