yes i to have been enjoying the read.

to the F1 gods out there would you recomend the kit set up to start with the f104 pro i have ordered the soft T-bar waiting befor i start the build but with the talk i would like to set it up with a good base to start with. would you recomend putting grease under the plate or do everything to gain the max traction to start with.

i understand a smooth trigger but would like a good starting point

Sure, don't mention driving skils. They are useless when you have the bette equipment.

Yes, it is one of the smaller esc's out there and works really well with 21.5 motors.

That is what our F1 series is going to "spec"as a BL setup.With the ultra sportsman v2 motor.Hope it's a good "replacement"for silvercan--testing has been very positive according to Paposwing.

you'll like the Speed passion combo. Our club has been running it in TC for over 12 months. Very close racing, simple to maintain and lot's of fun. I believe our club is looking at the V3 motor as the V2 is getting harder to get. Just a thought.

Yup... The cirtix will fit - just remove the fan which isn't needed for 21.5 motors anyways

That's an amazing looking car! Does the rear diffuser make a huge difference?

The velcro on the floor reminds me of an idea I had a while ago for these cars. Depending on how regulated the use of cooling fans are you could in theory build something similar to the brabham bt46. Not sure how well it would work since it would require sealing the sides and front of the body but theres the idea in a nutshell, get to work boys! I can supply a hand drawing if any are interested.
