Ok, I tried the flowing to get F1 back at WCRC:

1. Got in touch via e-mail and phone with Ron Schuur (on road director), had long conversations (won't bother you guys with the details) went' to meet him twice at the track, first time he was for it. The second time he just avoided me (not even a hello ).

2. Spoke directly with Danny (owner?) went to WCRC two or tree weeks ago, when they were remodeling, he said he wold call me to start again the series, I posted some of you guys favorable comments towards these end, suggested a format, PM him the format. To this day no reply.

What he did was that odd post in here inviting us to come practice with him and talk about it? Maybe some sort of you guys come and beg for it? Maybe not? Who knows except him?

I saw him again Wednesday at WCRC, just as Ron, I was not even acknowledge with a simple "hi". I guess these guys are just to busy ( at least for me )

Maybe someone else will have better results (perhaps it's my ugly Mexican-Scottish accent that they don't understand )

And that's my WCRC failed effort report for the F1 gang.
Sorry guys-itís disappointing.

Is there anyone amongst us that will be interested in participating on a small venture to open a track in the SFV (a real F1 home with an off road track to make some $) I may have the perfect location, in the middle of a beautifully park, already paved, close to the 101 and 405 ... PM me if this would be of interest to you.

Cheers,
Marcos

Does anyone know where to get the Type C front wing and rear wings for the HPI F10? I see them on the HPI Europe website but thats about the extent of the info I can find on them.

There is one in Moscow hobby shop I bought one for my F10

What kind on rear rims did you use on the photos below? As i can see, you are using ball diff for rubber tires? Are you mount Tamiya rims using hex adapter(12 to 14)?

I just fitted Tamiya f104 foam wheels to my F10 with foam conversion set. With F104 wheels my car front wider than rear (190mm in front vs 180 mm in the rear). I'm looking for solution to increase rear width to 190... Now I'm trying to make a 5mm spacers between rims and hubs to make the rear more wider...

Hi, they are f103 rims and tires. HPI also sells foam rims for this- it is just like the F103 wheels. It will make the rear wide. 1/12 foam donuts will fit the rims if you want to try those or just use tamiya f103 tires.

Mine are the hpi foam axles but I modified the right rear hub by cutting hole off in the end. Just an experiment for a smoother diff- you should use the normal foam axle diff

Yes, I'm using this axle too. But on Mike's F10 with foam wheels right rear hub is different and looks like ball diff for stock rubber wheels

That's been the biggest hurdle, no UK shops even list them, I'm only finding them on the HPI Europe website.

I did find them on wheelspinmodels.co.uk but I've never heard of that site before, can anybody vouche for it?
I'm even surprised none are even on ebay.

I believe HPI started selling two different front wings for the F10 over here in the US now. The type A which is a stock wing, and the type B.

I'd like to see somebody mount up a type B wing, I don't think I've ever seen one mounted on a car yet.
