I haven't seen double sided tape as stiff as the Tamiya stuff anywhere.

Saturday's F1 racing was great. Steve H. took the pole and the A-main win but Denmark, Casey and a host of others were in the A-main battle. Rod M. took the B-main over yours truly.

The B-main F1 video is the first video on the Frederick Hobbytown MD website and the A-main F1 racing starts at the 30 minute mark. check them out:
http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/12654699

The indoor temp was about 61 F and all the cars are running on rubber. I think the fast F1 lap was an 11.6, and it took 27 laps to make the A main.

more later.

Please tell us what tires you will be running, and what surface. Please be specific. That will make it MUCH easier to help you.

Good job on the website! Any chance of creating a body/wing section or providing a link to places to get bodies and wings?

I'm familiar with rcmart but completely forgot about d-drive until i saw the link posted somewhere.

F1 Stuff is not readily availble at my LHS. Granted there are two within an hour of me that will gladly order anything that I want, but I was wondering where you guys are buying from and if possible is there one site that has loads of links to other places that sell F1 stuff. I dont mean to be giving Robk extra homework to do but it would be great to have an F1 specific source page.

big battles today between exotec's, tamiya's and the tight twisty track. No idea who or what will prevail in the A-main as such different cars are atvtge front. Steve's F 104 is top of the TCS legal cars.

I think the d drive sports english page has been hacked. There is a bunch of Turk crap on there. Nothing about RCF1.
