If you want Foam Alan, Tamiya has some indy tires that are a little taller but seem to work really well. Shawn McDees uses them.

Rubber Tires - I use the Tamiya A compounds and they work good for me, the B will work when it gets hotter. Ride also makes some rubber tires, psycho can tell you where to get them from

you have that CRC so you can probably use the same tires that the 1/12th car use. I think they use ProLines but I'm not sure

Yeah, the CRC can accept any stand pan car tires. Jay said the black dots are the best, but they wear out very very quickly.

I don't think Pro-line has black dots. Corally and TRC do, though. You might also check CRC and see if they do.

Does anyone have a Tamiya 201 kit yet? If so, how does it handle?

Are they released yet? I thought the "hit the store" date was in April or May

Frank from Tamiya America ran his new F201 and gave us some insights on it over in the Forumula 1 R/C forums....

The Nige: Thanks for posting that link. It seems to me that the car is exactly what we expected it to be. Well, almost exactly what we expected it to be......we expected it to be arriving in LHS on time.

Hi Ian - we would be glad to help you but can you elaberate more on your question.

What type of kit are you running and what spur are you using.

23t stock motor? you may have meant to say 24 degree 27T stock Motor.

to be honest, I would only use a 27T stock motor on a 2WD F-1 if I was drag racing. That's too much motor for an F-1, just my opinion guys. The silver can or the RS 540 will do you just fine.

In my area, you will get spanked all over the track if you're not running a 24 degree stock motor (which is the maximum we allow in the class.)

Ian

You'll need to work on your throttle control a bit, but it makes you a better driver no matter what class you run in. I'd suggest starting at ~6:1 and increase your pinion a tooth at a time until you reach top speed just as you are letting off the throttle at the end of the longest straitaway. Unless you have a really long straitaway, somewhere between 5:1 and 6:1 should be good for a P2K, P2K2, Green Machine or MVP. In addition to the info Mike F mentions, it would also be helpful to know which motor you plan to run since some (p2k) have more torque in the low end and not as much in the high end where others (mvp) have more torque in the high end. You gear them differently.
