Hey guys... If your in the LA area I just found a big race next Sunday November 9th that will be having a F1 class... They will be handing out motors... silver cans I believe... So far we have 8 cars ! I just received my new/used F201 a few days ago and I can't wait to race it... It's called the Big Fat Turkey Race... It will be in Camarillo CA, Freedom Park... I hope Steve wont get pissed but if you have any questions please e-mail him at [email protected] , he's in charge of the thing... It would be great to have F1 A and B main

Sorry guys. A url squatter got my page. The club is in hibernation for now. I took a new job, moved, and had a baby all at once and I didn't have the time for my r/c passion. I moved over to blogger but if you look we don't really have much going on right now.

The F201 was and is a great chassis to race. We had to engineer the car quite a bit to get 45 minute runs plus qualifying out of it. I miss the having the club. The site unfortunately is gone forever I'm afraid. Some a**hole insurance company has my 10 year old url.

Great to see you guys carrying the torch for r/c F1.

Good a time as any to get those 201's out on the track. No Tamiya rules to worry about so open up those vents in the front and let's race!

slcf1, If you did not hear the Alpha F1's won the 2008 F1 Builders Cup.

More than just the website. New things are going on and the new cars are top of the line. The budget racer MP3/8 was made to take on the F103's of the world but that did not work...It destroys them! Anybody looking for a spec or club racer should check it out. 3 other new F1's and a WGT. I have the V103 and could not be happier with it. I keep looking for a slot on the asphalt because it will not get off of it's line at any speed. Check it out when you can. Watch for info on the 3rd annual F1 Builders Cup, Even Mo'better than the last!

Where in the US is the best place to buy these nice cars and for parts support also?

I've always loved these cars since they came out!

Nice work everyone....great car building!

Stock motormount is limited to 55/20 or 52/23 if i remember the gears correctly.

The 3 racing one is more adjustable, RCmart used to have them.

Hope this helps

And I don't think it is possible to get pan car foams on the F201, Touring foams yes, its a straight swap.
