Cool 3racing F109

Hey F1 guys:
The last pre-production photo and drawing of 3racing latest F1 kit is shown from their website.
Could anybody comment if is any good or bad, please?

My friend guess the suspension system is probably derived from F103 then think is no good due material is too weak.
Could anybody to ensure about this situation, please?

Best regards

It's a link F1 car and link 1:12 scale cars are proven. One great thing about link cars is that you can control\adjust roll movement alot more than a t-bar for more finite tuning.

I like how they have integrated the monoshock to dampen side to side movement.

I'd definitely pick one of these up if I there were an F1 class in my area. I think eventually you'll see alot of the t-bar designs all switching to link\side spring designs.

3racing stuff is usually really really cheap, like pot metal....

I'd stick with Tamiya or even HPI

I haven thad much issue with 3Racing hardware. I had some significant drive line components replaced with 3Racing alloy and CF on my old FW-05RR with a real strong motor on it, and lasted 2 seasons without any issues with any of those parts.

Just saying... Their alloy was as good as any.

I have one coming next week. the Tamiya front suspension arms setup should fit. the chassis is slotted for the arms.
F103 bodies should fit with no problems...

The chassis looks pretty nice, will it be offered by other dealers or is it only available directly from 3Racing?
