I'm liking the spec sheet for this car . R/C GOD or an R/C DOG ??.
Either way, the inboard shocks are a nice touch and i'm liking the sound of a fluid filled gear diff - if only for pure laziness and keeping gunk out of it.

On 3Racing's website, they already have some hopup parts listed, the usual alloy bling and C/F decks, plus some sweet stuff , like nose cone weights for fine tuning.

I also notice they specify Ride part numbers for rubber tyres - a good thing IMO.

I can see some sweet RBR decals on one of these , along with a number "2" on the nose

I'm checking the website every other day or so. It is such a nice looking chassis.

Is it here ,is it here yet !!??
Don't really care what the naysayers think. If this chassis runs as good as it looks I'll be jumping back into F1 in a big way.

jump jump.

We just got a class going here. This car may not work in it, but at least 3 of us are getting it anyway.

Looks cool...but looks like dimensionally they went their own way. At 190mm it is wider than the F104 but more narrow than the F103/F109. I like the car but until manufacturers standardize more then F1 will likely never be more than a novelty class.

I agree that it doesn't fit in the 180mm standard. But, if this car handles better and has better parts support, which it probably will, it may become the standard. Maybe it will force Tamiya and other manufacturers to consider new designs. We can only hope.

It seems all the talk about standardization is a little misguided. What difference does it make in the grand scheme of things ?? The 3R chassis is still 2 wheel drive but now has a working rear suspension. Is this such a drastic difference from the current "pan car" F1's. One could argue yes or no. Could it help F1 grow if we actually had 2 classes of F1...pan car and active suspension ?? Probably yes. If this car is successful could it prompt all manufacturers to make a similar car....again probably yes.
I guess i'm trying to figure out just what the argument is regarding racing this chassis against the current crop of other cars. Innovation in designs does not necessarily create a huge gap in performance potential. The F201 is what I'd consider a "radical" departure from any standard but that isn't the case here and as was found with the F201,the performance gap didn't exist. It was just "different".
Being heavily involved with VTA and USGT I can only suggest that the most important thing is to keep an open mind and be willing to accept some slight variation in traditional class rules and offerings. VTA fought that uphill battle and won. Lets do the same with F1 and embrace this potentially class expanding design.
