That's one serious race car, I'd like to crash, eh, drive it.

Charles, hope you want to keep some kind of say in what goes on in the UF1 stuff. Always been the voice of reason and by far the most rational guy I know in RC racing. Peace and love and all that, we know.
Hope you get to sit back and take the ride like the rest of us but gonna need that voice to keep it fresh and real or it will loose some of the shine.
I'm sure you have a plan and I think I know who's gonna be involved in that plan and if I'm right it's gonna be incredible.
See ya soon man.

off to bed......
It was fun. Never playing either of those tracks, I'm happy I finished well in Brazil (even though you lapped me). I have Vettel and Sutil for spinning me out and nosing me into the wall. Put in some good laps after that but nothing compared to your hero run.

Singapore. Oi. Dreadful. I want a rematch on that track now that I know it better.

Round #3 of Sean's Summer Series this Sunday at TQ. Usually getting 10+ F1's and there should be some FGX runners to help you with set-up and Sean probably knows what tires you need.

Can we please keep UF1 around. Its the only reason I got into the RC sport. I enjoy racing one class all day. I can't always make it to every race but when I do I have a blast! Everyone I have met for the past 6 months have been top notch. I'm a big fan of UF1 and I look forward to many more years of racing. Keep UF1 alive and strong!

Oh yeah by the way Calvins car is sick!!!!!

There may be a few changes but I'm pretty confident UF1 will stick around.

Exquisite! What parts were used to do the drivetrain conversion? Will that be available soon?

More power to UF1!!! RC F1's popularity has been on the rise and its good to have a group organizing races and setting standards.

Where i am, we have slowly nurtured F1 club racing by keeping it inexpensive, simple, and most importantly FUN. Mabuchi silver can and Formula Tuned motors give adequate and realistic speeds for us and allowed us to do multiple 15 minute mains after a 30 minute fastest single lap qualifying session. We have even done one hour enduros with mandatory pit stops for battery changes (no pit crew assist allowed) and those were among the best racing experiences we have had. Lately the club has expanded with recent races seeing attendances of 24-26 racers and it is still growing. .Moreover, newbies have been encouraged to join by making it easier for them to participate and making the class unintimidating. It is starting to become more of a challenge for the organizers as the group grows but we remain committed to keeping it inexpensive, simple and fun.

I encourage UF1 to keep doing what it does. The racers need organizers like you who will keep things sane and orderly so that the class will continue to flourish.

One of the reasons UF1 is fun is because the races are not held in one local track. Makes it interesting by different places, thereby simulating a "world tour" kind of racing. If you have a few tracks within driving distance of each other, it would definitely create more interest from the racers. Also better publicity.

Hey Lightfoot, did you guys practice the game on regular basis? My last F1 game was in 2002 so I am pretty overwhelmed by all the new tracks and technology such as KERS and DRS. Right now my PS3 is covered wiyth dust. Do you also play GT5?

It's actually just as fun when the whole series is at one track.
The winter series has been held at TQ's carpet track and we pack it full bi weekly on their normal practice day. Win win cuz there is time between rounds for the non F1 as well as the F1 crowd to get some practice laps in also. Very laid back and still get in a UF1 only program.
