Gives me back my controller and says the car seems fine. GRRRRRR!!! So there is much I need to learn...especially throttle control...and to not yank the throttle while turning. By the third pack I was getting the hang of it. F1 certainly takes finesse. By the 5th pack my lap times were coming down but consistency wasn't there. Haven't driven on-road in ages but it was fun as hell! And the scale realism was so cool. Can't wait for this Saturday!!
Apparently my email notifications for this thread are not working...I missed this entire conversation!

But yes as mike said you're more than welcome to pit over with us

Just wanted to give a big shout out to Mike for helping me out this past weekend. You went above and beyond as a company owner and representative. Saved me from what could have been a horrible weekend into a surprising 10th place finish in my first F1 outing. Appreciate all the help you gave me along with the tires and parts to try out. Looking forward to that F1R3!!

Hey anytime Josh! The F1 learning curve can be daunting, so very happy to help the 'new' guy out F1 cars are much more fun when you can just 'punch it'!

Anyone know where I can find an F1R2 kit? All my usually sites say are out of stock and the Exotek site says its is out of production.

Default F1R2 Race Results

Just picked up a F1R2 and raced it at ROAR Region 9's electric asphalt on-road race this past weekend. I didn't have any practice with the car but it was so smooth and easy to drive I was able to place 2nd overall. Great Product

anyone use the exotek machined spur? my diff balls won't fit. it takes 3mm diff balls right? I thought it had the original tamiya spur, but maybe it didn't. I'll have to get my calipers out tomorrow and measure them.

Correct, must use 3mm (like stock F104) diff balls

thanks for the answer. I measured the ones I took out and they are bigger than 3mm. must not have been a stock spur gear. i'll get some 3mm ones ordered.

Hey Mike, we're now in October, have you decided on doing another run of the F1R2 yet? I am itching to get my hands on an F1 chassis kit but will wait if you give a go signal
