I'm just getting back in to racing after over a 10 year layoff. I always wanted to run F1 before but never did, so that's what I am going to do this time around. I ordered a Roche Evo US car and need some direction on what wings to try and also motor, esc and battery. My local track is medium size, black carpet and they run 25.5t on CRC's. What do you guys recommend, and how big of a battery mah wise will I need? Thanks!

I had the best luck with Montech wings durable yet not too flex where they end up dragging after a crash.

Local track? Springfield?

Montech wings are a good start. Motor, I run Motiv but R1, Reedy, and TSR are all good. ESC, Hobbywing Justock, Battery, most of the LCG shorty packs are 4000-5000 mah, more than enough capacity.

With the Roche car, look up either Hanulec's or Klingforth's setups, both are good starting points.

Yes, mainly going to be running at Falcon and possibly heading to Prolevel occasionally. I will check out their setups. Thanks

hey guys quick question, I just want to confirm my thinking here, my car decided to traction roll as traction came up. I do not want to glue the tires unless I have to.

so to take away front traction here's what I want to try. go harder on front spring, add the front sway bar, increase the front width and rear equally by 1-2 mm , maybe go to softer diff in tubes.

is there anything else you all can think of?

Softer front springs and softer side springs. Less sauce on front tire.

Using a harder front spring will increase the likelihood of traction rolling. Here are other things to try, in the order we'd try them, to reduce or eliminate traction rolling:

1. Reduce ride height.
2. Softer side springs.
3. Reduce Caster angle (if this adjustment is available to you).
4. Glue front tyre sidewalls.
5. Harder front tyres.

Make sure your front wing isn't hitting and grabbing, I clean the bottom of it every run then look for the black carpet/sauce marks on it. Dremel the bottom of the far front ends of the wing, helps more than people realize

need some help from the racing crew here, I have a Exotek f1R3 and a Tamiya TRF101. I have been running the Exotek at the track a little on practice nights, and its fast. I need to work on my rookie driving skills. I have the F1s because I like them, not because I'm good, or will i ever be, I just don't get to the track enough, but I still enjoy driving it. I also like the scale aspect of it. So here is my question, Im only going to keep one, The tamiya will obviously have better body choices, and more scale aspect, so knowing that I'm not a big racer, club racing at best, which should I keep? I don't have electrics in the tamiya and wouldn't know if my lack of tuning skills at this point would make a difference in car performance. Track is black carpet. and they run a 25.5 class.

Turn one of them into an LMP.

keep the F1R3, its a great chassis. It will be less frustrating to learn to drive and set up. I love mine, it is only my back up car now because of how much I like the new TRF103.
