I'm thinking of getting into F1, or at least it'll be my next kit. Which kit is the one to have right now? Not the illegal one in the previous post, but one I can legally race with.

Exotek is nice....the carpet works for asphalt too...Schumacher runs well too..all run close to the same, get what you like most, xray and roche, crc, fenix are all top contenders

Thanks for the recommendations, I think I'm leaning towards the Roche.

so I recently installed an upper rm deck on my f103 and the servo mount for the rm. Car seems more stable on the straight and exiting corners.
It has the old metal antenna holder. Should i replace with a newer smaller shorter plastic style ones or is the big metal thing sticking up better? e.g. during a crash or flip?
ty for any input.

I got the Exotek Ultra CW edition. It comes with 2 chasis, one for ashalt and the other for carpet.

While i'm a novice at driving, the car is the fastest car on track. (I race on a low grip outdoor track in Sydney Australia)
It's rear grip is a huge, due to the design of the rear.
It has a major advantage over the traditional centre pivot cars because of the design and the owners input to the car.

Head over the Ultra group of facebook and you'll see its won all the major important races in the USA.

How would rear pod motor mount spacers help? How would they improve grip? I would think all it would do is raise the rear up...

Are there any clubs running these with 21.5T, or is pretty much everybody doing 25.5T?

If you're refering to the 3mm spacer blocks that install between the t-bar & pod plates they just raise the axel to accomidate larger diameter wheels.

We have a small club racing on a prepped parking lot and use 21.5. Mainly because we primarily run stock touring car and everyone had motors.

25.5t is the norm now a days in the US. Motors are as fast as the old 21.5t back in the day and most tracks in the US are on the small side.

This is what I'm talking about... these came in a trg pan car kit from Japan hk and not sure if the kit is a f1 car kit or pan car kit but it uses a lot of f103 parts. Curious to where these go and how they would effect my car. Sry about the crude picture. Lol
