You may need a new type of lipo-some of the 3200 packs out there have cases like a stick pack

Hard to tell from the pics. Are those Tamiya style wheels? If so that could be a good move for HPI for chasing down 103 type cars. They were bullet fast with the pancar tires though. Hey! This means that HPI will have to be represented at the next F1 builders cup! Unless they are afraid to run with the big dogs now.

Hehe good one. Its def not an 09 aero package though... With that said, it should have the 4 grooves in each tire to look the right part.

Im sure that Marty is already working on a pattern for the center support and a full carbonfiber chassis. If he isnt then he will be as soon as he sees this car. Check out www.mlpmotorsports.com for his other stuff and ask him if he is going to make some hop ups for this car. F1 is his thing.

Somebody should remind him that the track in Winthrop Harbor IL, Strictly Rc in Norridge IL and the Underground in Chicago have people racing F1. He would have some people to run against with his designs

Take the down out of chasing and you will be more accurate. I'll be racing my F103 on a permanent asphalt track in the sunshine, it doesn't get any better than that.
