F1 is alot more challenging than tc's...Try putting a 4.5t in one and see if you can make it stick to the local asphalt track using rubber tires !!! It' all about the ultimate challenge, and F1 is ”IT”......

I asked a longtime hobbyist and the race organizer," Why are there so few F1 racers joining"?

he answered .........."it's the hardest thing to drive"! Now that is a challenge

I remember handing over my F1 remote to an experienced nitro racer, and he got frustrated of doing donuts at every turn . He returned the remote quickly, saying it's too hard to control... Tire prep knowledge is extremely important in this class...

Don't worry. Yes if you put a 4.5 motor in a f1 car it will become nearly undriveable but the f1 classes are usually geared for 21.5. They are actually very enjoyable to drive with a 21.5 or even a 17.5. Not as easy as a 4wd touring car but not a total nightmare. They are a lot of fun.
