Sweet! I just got back from Castle. They have 'em too! $149, though. I think I'll stick with Tamiya for now and maybe get a new car for next season.

I know a couple guys that race them. I'll help if I can. Here's a few basics that I can tell you for sure. Don't use the rear wing that came with the car. It's very brittle, so use a Tamiya or HPI wing instead. The steering linkage is kind of strange. I was told the instructions are pretty confusing. These guys ended up using a Tamiya high torque servo saver and a couple tie rods to hook up the steering. Leave the gearing as is if you are using a stock motor. It's around 6:1 and the car is friggin fast out of the box. The stock tires are a bit soft to be useful. Run Associated pinks or greens in back and purples up front to start out with. I hope that helps.

Ran the Cross last night......

Handled sweet, had much more steering than my 103. Just seemed more predicable. Pretty fast with the stock gearing and a black can. I do not like the Tires that came with it... gonna try a set of Tamiya's as we only run rubber. Gonna switch out the rear wing, seems like it is made out of rubber.

Overall, after some tweeking, I know this one is a winner. Pretty tough too. I hit a concrete barrier @ full speed, and did not break anything.

Gonna put the graphite axel in it, and a tamiya shock.

Spooky: how do you run the battery in that car. Do you run it across the chassis(Tamiya style) or along the length of the chassis?

Salrusso. Greetings from Malta.

We have quite a few years experience here with F1, though unfortunately we are not running them this year as there were not enough entries at the beginning of the year he club to warrant a class.

My son and I both run Corallys. If you want the best F1 that has got to be the one. It is a serious racer, strong and very adjustable, and right on the weight limit.

I made up a couple of carbon fibre chassis for them both, using saddle battery configuration. This has the advantages of giving you more space for the electrics and keeping the weight more concentrated towards the middle of the car.

I did this conversion on almost every Corally F1 racing locally and even a couple of HPIs - all with excellent results.

If you play with graphite or composite front arms and leaf springs you can vary front grip accordingly. Some guys prefer the standard composite items, some the graphite, some prefer a mix. The new Corally rear wing is good too. It is slightly wider, gives more downforce, yet less drag.

We race with foam tyres - Corally Goldstar hard up front and Corally Yellows at the rear though the yellows wear fast. The Silverstar gives almost as much grip with better wear.

We raced F1 with 21 turn stock motors. We had a control motor supplied by Corally and the racing was very competitive.

Son Josh and i used Novak Atom speedos, Novak XXL receivers and KO servos. Josh won the local championship many a time with his car and I managed the odd win too.

F1 is great fun. pity it has stopped out here.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Johnbull: I hope its a serious racer for what they charge for it. When I decided to get back into F1, I looked at the Corally. I wanted to have a Corally F1 to go with my Corally TC, but that price changed my mind in a hurry!

Its sad that F1 isn't as popular as it used to be. It really is the only scale class left in R/C. The bodies and chassis still represent what is used in actual racing today.

I mean when was the last time any of us saw a 300M or Stratus race???

R/C has pretty much abandoned scale for performance, and the F1 class was only one victim of this.

I'm not sure if you know this, but Corally makes two versions of the car. There is the GRP version, which my lhs sells for $199 and the Pro version which my lhs sells for $249. It's really not such a bad deal considering the Tamiya and Cross cars sell for around $149 and you don't need to buy any hop-up parts for the Corally or try to find Tamiya wheels. Associated, CRC, Corally, etc. wheels will fit. jmo! After spooky's review, I may be running the Cross car next year, though!
