Looking for a 2wd F1 car.....

so far all I can find is a Corally F1 (can't find an online shop with one yet), Duratrax Delphi (dis-continued but should still be available in some stores) and Tamiya F103 (also dis-continued).

Are there any other makes and models currently available (or dis-continued) I might have missed?

HPI Made the Super F1, there was the Kyosho Target/Scotch Indycar, the Kyosho Impress, the Cross Crossfire...Woods made one based on their Oval Car....those are all I remember, but you could do a lot worse than the F103.

performance wise the Delphi is not so bad, just the quality of the components is not the best,

I have been running one locally on a weekly basis and I am very competitive against the F103's

running tamiya type b's all round and a ball diff is necessary,

The Cross is a nice one. It is marketed by Powers International. I have just built one. Very nice ! I have also built a few HPIs. Also nice. I sell them both.

My son and I both run Corallys. If you want a seriously good F1 look no further. You know how good their 1/12 car is. The F1 is pretty much the same.

Default Kyosho Impress

Hello I know that this is an old thread but I just wanted to say that I have a Kyosho Impress that I want to sell. It is in very very good shape. It has an HPI F1 body on it. It is painted yellow in the style of the Penzoil indy car of Rick Mears. Or at least I think Rick Mears drove the penzoil car for a while. Anyways I just want to sell it. I haven't ran it for a few months due to having probably the worst streets and parking lots in the US. If anyone wants pic's or more info about the car just pm me.
