Despite the new body being able to fit the F104W, does anyone recommend changing the suspension arms from the F103 to the F104? I'm just curious to see what you guys recommend.

Hi guys,
What do you think about this?
Formula design around a 2S super shorty.
This would give a larger range of battery placement options and allow for transverse with the use of a std Tamiya body.
Designed arounf a Exotek F1R2 so I kept the rear "t-bar" design with the option of locking it to the rear brace.
Space in the rear would also allow to put the esc and receiver next to eachother.
Top deck adds some stiffness, but its a small part to mill anyway and easily swap out for a different design.

So, any recomendations??

You will find a handful of either specific F1 decal kits or generic decals that can look are available in the UK. For example I got a Tamiya Lotus set (Camel yellow era) from eBay for my Snowbirds shell.

I usually have a spare set or two... but depends what you want. F60 Ferrari sets and the Vodafone era McLaren I could help with!

I am a happy customer of both the US based shops recommended already. Kevin is spot on with TQ Racing, and of course Brad at F1rclab. Have ordered from both for delivery to the UK (be aware there can be UK customs charges).

There is another option in Europe - the Border in the Netherlands sells a good range, and have good shipping to the UK.

Hope that helps,
Mark
Thanks Mark just ordered from the border
Any idea what motor I need to get for racing outdoor in the uk is it a 21.5?
Cheers

Excellent. Yes it will be a 21.5 for 2S for outdoor racing in the UK.

Not sure if you are racing at a specific club or in one of the series. I think some clubs may be running ETS rules which means the controlled Hobbywing 21.5 motor and speedo. The larger series run BRCA rules and a wider choice of motors.

Let me know if you need help with any of that.

Stabilizes the rear, takes away a little traction roll. Gives a little more rear traction. But, the wider you go the slower the rotation in the corner. So, like anything else, it is a balance you are looking for.

thanks I widened it last night and it solved my problem with the traction rolling. I went back to saucing full rear and half front and my car stayed on all four.

Guys building a X-ray X1 for low grip outdoor racing and was wondering if the 2mm optional chassis would be a better starting point than the kit 2.5?

Also do you seal only the chassis with CA glue or is it worth doing the upper deck parts and suspension arms as well?

So I've been looking F1 cars and I'm stuck on which one to get. I had my sights on the serpent and xray. Lots of others have been mentioned.

On a side note, all electrics being equal minus 1S, which cars are faster?
