The pro ten 235mm guys have better tires, way more down force and more motor not to mention the 55mm of extra track width.

The exo104 i have is more than capable of hanging with the 103s but pro ten? Don't think so after watching them on you tube. Different class of racing entirely

Modified Pro ten 235 mm in good hands are faster than 1/8 nitro in bad ones...

Please donīt compare with F1s. Thatīs pointless.


But will be nice to compare 200 mm WGTs (foam pro10 tires) with Tamiya Lemans type C cars (foam F103 tires) using same kind of motors and electronics... I think WGTs are still more competitive...

Is it required to tape the battery in the F1R?
or will the little holder infront combined with the aluminium in the rear hold the pack in place?

Already done Sir. Just got my F1R today and using one of my F103's for the conversion. Jump right in after you get your kit.

Hi
No, the F1R comes with holders. The blue shock mount is what holds the battery in.

I might be intrested in buying the F1R exotec chassis, but when will it be back in stock and what steering link is used when using a short lipo battery?
Is the F1R chassis that much better then the F104 PRO or the F104X1 chassis?
Is it better with rubber or foam tires or better with both?
