With the glossy shine and the center seam, I'm pretty sure that's rubber.

Your charging your batteries in your chassis? Not a smart thing to do-- puff- puff. Seen it done many times both charging and discharging.

We ran both version yesterday at Flagler RC - Med /Med and Med/Soft with no problems(Team Powers). In two weeks we will be running them again at Valkaria on the Nationals track.

Is there a current F1 kit that does a bit better than most on rougher/uneven asphalt surfaces?
I had an F104Pro a several years ago , and it did fine , but I am wondering if there is something a little better out these days.

Thinking about getting an F1 Ultra next, but I"m very new to any sort of racing. How hard are they to set up and drive? Should I hold off for a bit?
