Alum motor mount --- I lost two spur gears in one month till I installed this upgrade. Either getting hit, or hitting something caused just enough misalignment to chew up the spur.

The stock plastic mount is just too flexy -- or I am too clumsy a driver!!!

What else would you pick up for the initial build that are the "must have" parts?
I recommend getting an extra rear wheel axle I bent the right side at WCRC when the left rear tire hit the wall transfered energy I guess.

Hi,

the absolut must have are some HPI S Tires. With Kit tires the car doesn't work!

Furthermore you can try the new HPI Front and Rear Wing set...
You will have a bit more steering and rear is less nervous. And it looks just great!

Kind regards ,

kabus

Kabus, where on earth are you finding a new wing set? HPI's website doesn't even have it?

Also, anyone want to share any carpet rubber setup baselines they might have with the Exotek chassis

Ok- just checked mine and I'm running 96/35 for foam so you guys might start at 96/38 for rubber and temp the motor from there. Mine only hits 105* but I'm geared more to make run time for 10 minutes. I'm sure you guys can get more aggressive if running 5 minutes.

I heard you were doing some hot laps with the F10 at Cal Raceway Saturday.

Any news on the HPI foam tires

One note of interest, I am VERY EXCITED to announce that Alpha RC F1 has signed on to sponsor the F1 exhibition class at the Champs this year!!!

Any commercially available F1 Chassis: Alpha, CRC, Tamiya, 3Racing, Cross, Kyosho, HPI, TRG, etc. is eligible. It will be a 210mm max width, foam tire, 2-cell Lipo, Handout silver can class. Looking at the F1 threads here on RCTech, it should be KILLER!!! Can't wait!!
