Hiro said he placed well against F103's and 104's.

Was he running his 17.5BL motor on four cell NIMH?

Our track's current Formula One rules are any chassis, any tires, any batteries up to 7.4lipo BUT...silver can motors only.

Looks like a very promising car. the local onroad here is gonna run this as a spec class, which will be my first venture on to the onroad side of rc. Hope that it can lead into a mod class as well.

Not to sure yet but as for setup box spec and the hpi tires as far as i know. They are gonna use this as a "novice" class for new comers to get there feet wet. For winter they run on carpet and summer on asphalt so i hope this car can adapt. They are in the process of building a new layout thats gonna be huge but fast.

Check that just read more on the boards 27t or 17.5 depending on the racer.

What a day of racing today!! It was truly a day of F1. So many people showed up and all were nice looking formula one cars. I just hope we will have this kind of great event every month.

Anyways, the f10 ran great again today!! After three rounds of qualifier i qualified 2nd and finished 2nd overall. I ran against mostly Tamiya F103 and a few other brand cars so it was like my F10 vs Tamiya 103. In the last main race, my F10 hit fastest laptime time on the day in rubber tire class too.

The F10 had some option parts below listed but it was almost box stock car.

#102878 Ball Diff Set (95T/64P)
#102879 Threaded Aluminum Shock Set
#102911 Aluminum Motor Mount (Orange)
#102912 Aluminum Left Bulkhead (Orange)
#102906 FT01 High Grip Slick Belted Tire S (Front)
#103017 FT01 High Grip Slick Belted Tire M (Rear)

Also I recommend you to have HB 12x front hard springs if you run with rubber tires. What I had on my car was

#61699 Front Spring (Hard/0.55mm/5Coils)

with those hard springs, the car turn in crispier and was also more stable overall. Those are highly recommended.

Lastly, i will leave my gearing for the 17.5 brushless motor I ran today.
95 spur gear/29 pinion so it was 3.275. The track was kind of big (Tamiya USA) but I think it would be a good starting point to find right gearing for your local race track.

Hope it helps.
-Hiro

hey Hiro do u have any pics of your f10..?

Was that you last night who picked up the F10? I thought Billy was talking about your car that was built in 2 hours before the race. Will you run it next Wed? Was waiting on a few more racers before I make my decision.
