Default Best F1 chassis for parking lot bashing

No racing. Just fun with a 5.5t brushless setup

Or recommend another chassis.

Uncleaned public parking lot, smooth

F1 (or pan cars in general) aren't too flash on parting lots. A 4wd touring car is the best bet as it will handle dusty and rough surfaces.

I've already got a TA05 with One way and SPool with a 5.5t. Its a riot.

What would be an appropriate step up from it?

I recon the TA05 is a good car for parking lot bashing (and on the race track). If you're looking for something different you could always set up a drift car. Start with a good stiff Touring Car chassis, some drift rings, and get that thing sideways

I wouldn't go far as to say that. They just need nice clean asphalt and soda for traction.

I agree, but he specifically stated unprepped carpark, so F1 is out really. I drive an F1 on unprepared asphalt, but it's a race track so generally clean, and it's fine, but we run silver can!
Also if you're looking TC upgrade for uprepped surfaces, shaft drive is a good idea if you can find one as it stops stones getting in the gears

Go with the least expensive kit and put lots of weight on the front. HPI F10 perhaps.
