motor mount isn't designed for brushed motors like a silvercan.

I really like the front end. Very cool! Can go stock or Tamiya. Motor mount looks to be one of those dual lower mounting types. Very clean.

The SP-1 F1 made an appearance at this past weekend's TCS race at The Track in Winthrop Harbor. Quality looks great! The Speed Passion version will be black anodized with machined chamfers along with black anodized stand-offs. I was told it is currently in production and will be available at the end of the month or next month.

They probably didn't consider silver can motors since brushless foam F1 is pretty popular in Asia. I don't think anyone uses silver can unless its a local spec class. I guess someone can design an aftermarket pod plate if the demand is there.

I hope the street price is reasonable.

Does it matter? Most rules state silver can or 21.5T. Everyone I race with have brushless setups.

Another good looking chassis. Kudos....

I think it does mather for a lot of people who are getting started in R/C and to those who want to try something new/different and want to keep there funds under controle or already have some brushed esc's/silvercans.
In my opinion it would have a big benefit if it gives the buyer the opportunity to choose between brushed and brushless.
It's always nice to have a brushed systeem for back-up, but in this case you are forced to have a second brushless system and therefor i will not even consider it of buying this chassis.
But that doesn't mean that this chassis would not look good cause of the motor mount, i think it has a lot of potential.
It's just my opinion.

There are rules for brushed motors in UK and Australian rules, and F1RCGP in Japan has brushed motor classes. Personally I prefer to run the spec 22T brushed motor we allow in the UK in my rubber car as it gives better throttle control and is more drivable on the track than the 21.5T brushless and is just as fast down the straight. I run brushless in my foam car as I can crank up the boost for more speed, and being able to drive the car harder means the brushed motor doesn't last as long as in rubber.


The chassis does have a motor mount for brushed motors listed as an option part.

You have a valid point blue.

Hello,
I don't think so.
I still have some brushed system but they are just getting dusty on a shelf.
Beside I would not use one of my own brushed system with the lipo batteries. they are just too and don't even support lipos cut off... and I don't have any nimh batteries anymore.
Do you really consider that it is a cheap option to have a recent brushed system that support Lipos where you could get a cheap decent brushless system like hobbywing Ezrun or Hobbyking for 50$ or less)

The optional brushed motor mount WILL BE out shortly after the release of the kit....it will work with brushed motor or motor that require the up and down mounting screw holes.
