Get into F1 now before all the major manufacturers and pro drivers get involved and ruin the class.

Basically, have fun while it lasts.

I also find 17.5 TC more interesting, because you can run as a pack and run door to door and really race people hard. I dont think ive seen a F1 race where there were enough good cars for that to happen, that video included.

Lightfoot, you want a car that demands throttle control, run mod tc..
Your first quote makes you sound like a jerk. The second quote at least says something with a little depth.

So I decided to go the TC route first and picked up a Sakura Zero S to get my feet wet. If the F1 class takes off at the new onroad track this summer, I will most likely pick up an F1 as well. Thanks for all the feedback.
