Chances are the list just hasn't been updated. I know a guy who is heavily involved with the VTA association, I've yet to hear him say they're not approving an F1 body because "X" reason. I'd be okay with an open F1 body rule provided it's to scale for simplicity. I've ran through my fair share of F1 bodies, they're all pretty sturdy and the aero makes little to no performance difference.

i wouldn't worry about it. both ROAR Nationals and USVTA Southern Nationals do not leverage this body list.

there are no F1 aero dynamic advantages that i've seen with bodies. only a weight advantage --- so spray light!

There are a number of bodies that were not included in an attempt to preserve some scale looks, remembering that the list starts with cars modelled after 2008 and newer. The list is fairly up to date, though as the 2022 cars come out, I'm sure there will be additions.

Hello,

I plan on running F1 this weekend on asphalt, weather will probably reach into the high 60’s. I have a ball diff and gear diff and a multiple shores of tires.

What would you recommend for tire prep for cool weather, also should I I stick with a ball or gear diff

What kind of tires do you have? To be fast, I would try to run the softest possible and if you have over-steering then go slightly harder in the front (if possible). My oberall objective would be slight understeering at high speed and slight oversteering at low speed.
Diff ball or gear makes no big difference (for the average) - the main question is whether its smooth (i.e. consistent) and which stiffness. Ball diff is easier to change stiffness, so Id go for it and start with a loose setting. If you know what stiffness you need, then gear diff should be more consistent.

The asphalt we are running on is not smooth. it is a parking lot. As for body's any F1 body. I run either Xray/Mon-tech 18 or 22 bodys.
As for tires I have a new set of Gravitys and several used sets. I'll be glad to sell the new set. as for indoors- CRC's.

Those front tires will have a TON of steering - Even with TP medium fronts, I never sauce them.

Are the fronts 30mm wide? I bought the Sweep low profile tires and the fronts were only 27mm wide, doesn't look very scale, not impressed.

Did Hamilton stop crying and determine if he's going to race or retire yet?
