Thanks Tony and when it is Done I will send you one ok.

Maybe you can get it out on that Tamiya Track and do so testing! and or winning if they let you run it in the 4WD Class.

Maybe we can get people back into F1 2WD Cars!
Plus with our New Body and Belted Slick Tires Slipper Clutch and F1 Nitro 1/10 scale to follow.

For fun I could probably run it with the 4wd'ers....not sure if that would be possible at something like the KO Race or whatever.

Anyway, the F201 class fizzled today at the La Mirada. I did, however, throw it out there during practice and must say this car is a DREAM now!!! Lots of speed, GREAT handling....I think I was running lap times VERY comparable to my 19T TC! I made some slight mods to the chassis that allowed the car to roll a little more without touching down on the chassis. I will be taking some pix tomorrow (hopefully) and will send you a couple (if you want) to show you what I did.

Great job, Marty! Very impressed with this chassis....ready to win some races!!!

Hey there T man I would like to see the pics as well! and That is our first Gen: Chassis I think with the New F201 PRO II we changed most of the little things that would bother some people set up at some tracks!

What I don't get is my Chassis on the underside dose not hit.

But your Chassis is over 1mm thicker than our New PRO II Chassis as well as your topplate is as well thicker than our PRO II. SO our new PRO II 2006 is Lighter and thinner.

The Batteries on the LTO Chassis were moved forward almost a 1/2 inch and the same with the saddle pack Pro II Chassis Forward about 1/4 of an inch and inward about a total of 1/2 inch to help with Chassis roll over!

Here in the Pics is the Chassis after Tony's the PRO and the one after that the next 3 are the PRO II I am out of the Saddle pack chassis at this time! But as soon as some supplies come in I will show you all, the Changes we have done!
Hey Tony I'll Trade ya a New Chassis kit for some Parts I needhelp with ! LOL

I got it maybe we should put in the center FIA Ride height plank under the Chassis lets say 2mm Thick!

I would like to see these as well.

I guess the Chassis rolling over in the corners is a down fall of the Chassis But My chassis will not do this and about 8 other people I talked with theres do not do this.

And we all run 4 to 5mm of ride height!

I have had one other email on it- But I guess it is just the chassis roll and crap tires offered for the F201 a Harder sidewall and a stiffer setup might be the answer Not sure

Ok, FINALLY got the pictures taken. It's not that drastic a change, just the back sides of the chassis. I did notice a HUGE difference in the way the car handled....it stopped touching down in the corners and carried SO much more cornerspeed. I also added some of our chassis protector to help if it did still hit.

I think one of the biggest problems might be that I'm running the suspension pretty soft....I want the car to roll alot. Seems, to me anyway, that this is the way it works best.

Anyway, pix attached.

Hey you got it to work for you the way you want it is all that matters 2nd at last years KO PRO PO wasn't all that Bad!

Here Tony on my Chassis I run 35 wt oil in the front one orange oring in the shock then with a 5mm ride height I have put a peice of fuel line on the shock to control down stop (keep the chassis from rolling) and Yellow springs
and in the rear 25 wt oil and one orange oring in the sock and ride height in the rear at 4 to 5mm and a peice of fuel line to keep the chassis from hitting the ground (down stop) and I use the tires and chamber and toe to set up the car!

Now with the new F2006F1 Chassis we fixed this problem! Pic of the front of this F180 is the same thing we are doing! with this change and we are looking at the same for the rear!

Looks very nice Marty, very clean without the front diff and also very light, any clue on a possible release date, or should we be asking closer to the date?
