Default 3 Racing new f1 F113

Just jumped on the 3 racing website to look for option parts for my fgx. So as usual i click on option parts then click on 3 racing as my manufacture. Then there is a additional car in there, the F113. Does anyone know more info about this?

cheers josh?

I'd guess it's an updated F109 or a 180mm version of the F109.

Especially looking at those wings that are under the F113 parts list they're Tamiya style mounting, not FGX.

I'm assuming it is this:



There is a bit of discussion about it in the FGX thread. Appears to be a FGX but with both front and rear Independent suspension.


EDIT: Perhaps not seeing how the wings mount. They must be developing a 3rd F1 car.

Looks like an old school front wing set with Tamiya type mounting holes from the picture shown.

Hey J-Pap, Where did you find a FGX type chassis with double independent suspension systems?

According to the article on RedRC, they hinted that it is an inline battery car with solid rear axle.

Crap, does that mean the race organizations are getting ready to limit the class to solid rear end? Interest in class with that... 0.

Around the world almost all organisations limit F1 to a solid axle. Why do you think almost all cars are built like that with only one exception.

Been waiting to read more details on this chassis and I know this sounds stupid but.....Are we really talking about a solid axle as in NO diff ? Somebody clue me in.

Solid axle cars do have a diff. They just lack the true independent suspension. Only the FGX has that.

The car above is indeed a full suspension fgx. They have an image on their facebook page. 3racing is calling this picture "New suspension system for FGX" Just wondering if that means f113 is a full suspension fgx, or they are 2 different new f1 cars?

So not the f113, but if you're interested here is some video of the "New suspension system fo FGX"

According to RedRc which has also been quoted above, the F113 is a narrow chassied, solid axle F1 with inline battery. It has nothing to do with the front suspension on the FGX picture above. 3Racing call the picture a new suspension system for the FGX, so I would presume it is just that, an option for the FGX.
