I definitly think you should get one... Its only like $80 RTR at tower!! then u could sell the ESC, radio, reciever servo for like 50 -75 total! Basically giving you a free car

Its up to you but id do it if i wasnt short on cash to buy it in the first place


peace-

Corally F1 cars are still available new. Really nice to drive too.

We are trying to get people to run 2wd F1 at our track as the cars are still out there . It's a bit of a chicken and egg thing, everyone says they like them but not enough people race them so people don't bring them as not enough race them and round in circles again.

I like that you have to drive out of corners and can't just mash the throttle at the hint of a straight. (1/12th is the same).

Just my 2c
Peter

ps we have a couple of Delphis as well, F1 rules are stock motor here, so the 20 t Delphi motor makes it pretty even!!??

Rod M - Unfortunatly you can't use bsr tires with the duratrax, but tower hobbies has both tamiya F1, A and B compound front and rear tires in stock.

they probably are better,

but this duratrax is only US$75 with body, ESC, motor, and radio gear,

I am going to sell off the motor, ESC and radio gear, and use my own gear, (just need a new Reciever)

I actually bought a full set of Tamiya A's and B's when I placed my order with tower,

I also got a ball diff, turnbuckles, and motor heatsink/plate,

should be fun

I race the Delphi on carpet, both Oval and roadcourse. I've been running foam tires so I can't help you there. I will say this: the car is quick and nimble. If you want you can PM me and I will give you some other tips for the car. On the oval using a stock 27 turn motor and a Sanyo 1700 mAh stick pack I did four more laps in five minutes than an RC10 L4O using 3300's! On the roadcourse I'm only a lap or two off of the 1/12th GTP cars. Good luck with yours!

I am planning on using a Monster stock 27T and converting some of my older GP3300 saddle packs to stick packs,

do you know if the chassis would accept side by side stick pack, or only the 3+3 style pack?

Ive used both. The side by side seems to work better.

I set a new track record in Oshkosh on the carpet oval with mine! I was running laps faster than the NASCAR Pro guys were!
63 Laps in 5:04.32

I don't know what that means (no nascar in Aus) but it sounds good,

I ran the Delphi last Friday at my local track against all the Tamiya F103's in the F1/LeMans class,

running a Monster 27T, TC2 ESC and Tamiya type B's all round, this was the first time running a RWD car, I qualified 3rd (out of 8) but slid off the track in the final (parts of the track was getting wet from wind and rain),

the Delphi looked like it had better steering than the F103's but was still quite loose in the rear on power out of the corners, still its lots of fun and with a bit more practice I should get better,

how on earth do you determine the rollout on these things?

the monster was not getting hot at all but I would like to figure it out,

General rule: gear up one tooth at a time untill you don't make runtime, or start to make slower laptimes. Download a rollout chart for easy rollout reference. (google is helpfull here) If you really can't find any rollout chart on the internet PM me your Emailadres and the teath count on your spur and I'll send you one in Excell format.
For the loose feeling out of the corner: use one weight thinner shock oil in the center shock, and/or use one weight softer spring on the center shock.

thanks Doggy,

I will try that out tonight,



hey Pro ten,

I don't have the oil shock yet, its only 8beans from tower so I will be getting it soon, I think the loose rear is more due to my driving style than anything else, need to improve my throttle control,

Can the TC2 be programmed to help with the on power delivery?? (I have the pit wizard but have not used it much)
