Hey Buddy how are you?
It's cold up there, have you visited the hangar for indoor racing?
We start the UF1 series over here next Saturday, are you in for TCS Nationals?

Cheers!
Marcos

Here is a product review article about Tony Phalen's Tamiya F104X1. This is the car that Tony drove to win the F1 Championship at the ROAR Carpet Nationals last weekend.

Hey Mike, it sure looks like Tony's car. The only way I could tell the difference between your car and Tony's car (both of which were black/gold Lotus F1 cars with a little red in the wings) is by the color of the side view mirrors and the ROAR sticker number on the nose of the car.

Tony's driver has a gold helmet and mine are red. I don't run mirrors either. Other than that, pretty much the same.

What's a better route to go on for my F104 Pro? The Exotek F1R conversion, or the F104x1 lower chassis and roll damper conversion? Only running on rubber tires both indoor carpet and outdoor asphalt.

I'd say X1 upgrade. Since you already have the Pro top deck you will probably use that for carpet and then for asphalt you can use the X1 short top deck. The new X1 long top deck seemed to work pretty well on high grip asphalt and will probably work well on carpet too.

Apex sure does make a lot of sense with that post!
If your club allows aftermarket kits canít go wrong with Mikeís F1R though.
Do you already have an abundance of t-plates or maybe side pod springs? Food for thought; they are both great chassis.
