So I'm sticking to 21.5 for at least another year. The tracks where I race F1 are going with the 21.5 motors w/25.5 allowed per USVTA F1 rules.

I haven't heard of any Spec motor for 25.5 here.
Why, if 21.5 is open would you want to control a 25.5 motor?

The motors I'm running don't even have 25.5 in their line up. Yet?
I'm liking my R1WURKS motors, batteries and support.

Only ones I'm aware of from the big manufacturers is Trinity, Tekin, Reedy, and Novak.

F1 is very popular at our track and the most competitive class. We have had at least 5 different winners this summer. I don't see any reason to change the rules.

there is a reason roar approves motors

nobody wants to run against a big wire(remember d3.5 17.5??) wye wound motor

F1 is not novice

I wouldnt have a problem with 25.5 if we had approved motors

I get that.

Til then, I'm gonna look for the fastest motor available I guess.
Gotta keep racing these, whatever the rules are.

Our last 21.5 race around here ran today.

Tuning Haus' End of Summer Party at Tamiya USA track So. Cal.

UF1 format similar.

F1, GT10 and 13.5 TC.

3 minute qualifiers to get best 5 non consecutive laps. 1 pit stop, triple 10 minute mains for all A, B, C and D (GT10 had 38 cars I think). Fastest time from any main wins round...

A and B Mains for F1 today, 20 cars.
Happy to say it went my way, qualified 2nd.
Finished 3rd in 1st A main, crashed early.
Won 2nd and 3rd mains to take the overall.
Love but gonna miss my 21.5 R1 motor.
Love the new TRF102 with 101 Carbon front end now.
Gonna retire my F60/X1 conversion car that's been so good to me for sooo long.
Sorry for the update but pretty friggin stoked right now.

Congrats on the win!

What's happening to the 21.5 R1 motor? Switching to a new brand?

What area of handling improved by switching over the the 101 front suspension?

Thank you.

In a nutshell, as mentioned earlier in this thread, looks like our main race coordinators have decided to switch F1 racing to 25.5 to try and help the class grow again.

I had the 101 carbon front end on my 101 while I tried to get that chassis up to speed so I just went with it when I built the TRF102.

Really diggin this chassis.

Just finished this Sauber C12. The paint is TS gunmetal grey, sprayed on top of a clear polycarbonate paint and backed with polycarbonate black. I was nervous painting this 22 year old vintage body but the test sample came out just fine. The fluorescent yellow mirrors finish it off. Added a windscreen and head padding for extra detail. I love these vintage F1 bodies. The car is a narrow F104 pro v2 with extotech front end.

Thanks Ron,

The only difference really would be the FRP fiberglass (flex) chassis vs the carbon (stiffer) chassis on the Pro

And actually, the pro's damper system works really well, not sure if the X1 damper is really the game changer.
The disc damper worked really well for me too, just ran it with light smear of diff grease on the bottom disc only and very light spring tension on it.
The rear of these F1's, for me, have to be very, very lightly set up.
Spring, oil, damper.
Front, for me is pretty stiff and make the car push, steer it with brakes.
That's just me but it gets around ok

Ok I will keep this in mind. I prefer a car with push vs loose even though I know loose is faster but Id rather have it predictable vs not.

didn't want to start a new thread so... if you have to choose between these five (only), performance wise, which one would you get? why? my home track is outdoor asphalt here in the tropics.

Street Jam F01
Yokomo YRF 001
TRF102
Serpent SF2
F104 Pro V2 black

thanks!

No mention of the XRAY X1?

That really should be on your list.

What can you get parts support for and what do others run where you are.

You'd hate to get something and have no support with parts and tuning.

I race my Tamiya 104 X1 and now TRF 102 on asphalt and they both work great.

I bought an XRAY X1 just for carpet and like it so far and others have been racing their XRAYs on asphalt with sucess here too.

We have a couple guys running here with the 104 V2 but most seem to feel that the T plate Tamiya cars run better on asphalt.

I have no experience with any of the other cars nor have I seen them run here, doesn't mean they aren't good though.
