Hy!

I have an issue with the reinforced suspension arms.
The front lower arms have much play on the ball the are mounted. all the others are normal like the kit ones.

I noticed it not before because i used the transparent fiber plate, but now i rebuld the car with david junes setup, and there īthe plate is not used. now i recognized the play of it.

Is that normal?

Greetings Blueman

If you use a counter sunk screw where the arm mounts that will open up the pivot ball a bit and adust the amount of slop. However most of us have found it's better to live with it then end up with too much bind.

Did anyone notice that the Snowbirds race had an F-1 exhibition class? There were only direct drive chassis running, but it was cool to see interest in open wheel r/c again.

InspGadgt, I'll be ordering some stuff before too long. I'll drop you an email to check the inventory.

Hopefully the new site will be up by then. I've just signed up for their new Linux server and will be migrating to a new store software hopefully over this weekend. I'm hoping this will generate enough sales to get the shop back on it's feet.

I was one of the F1's driving in the Demo at the Snowbirds. Yes all were direct drive except 1. We had 2 hyperdrives, 1 corally, 1 CRC(mine), and 1 F201. Would been more but the new prototype from CRC could not make it done there to race.

I "raced?" the F201 and the chargers that were by the track fried 2 of my 4 cells. 1 cell was venting when I put the body on the car and the second one vented at the start of the race. I wish I could have had the chance to get another pack but thats the way it goes...

BTW The same charger fried a 4 cell battery pack yesterday at the track I race at....

Could any comparison be made between the performance of the F201 vs. the direct drive cars?

Well here in Ga we race a series were we race both style's of F1's. They run 6cell stock on the direct drive and 6cell 19turn on the F201. The reason for this is cause of the added weight of the F201 and more of a drive train to rotate. The driect drives have more straight line speed with this but the F201 with a 19t is able to keep up and over take in the turns. So it makes it a equal playing field. If the f201 has to use same motor and batteries as the direct drive it will be much slower overall.

Greg... theres not just one track we run our series at. We run at tracks here in North Georgia and in Tenn. But here is a website you can go to and click on F1 page and get teh rules for our class. Also there are pictures of our rides on the site also. Also go to the Georgia section in RCtech and look for the threads for the F1 All-star Series. Alot of info on rules and tracks that we will race at. If you need any help with the F1's or questions feel free to contact me. I am also a team driver here in the southeast for MLP.

I will see also about getting more stuff for you to help you set it up and get you going.

Chad Sharp ( 3rd place in F1 Demo at the Birds)

Very cool videos on that site Chad. How do you guys get F201 wheels on the direct drive cars?

The F103GT uses TC wheels and tires so all you would need to do to use the F201 wheels on the F103 chassis is use the rear hubs and front knuckles/axles from the F103GT.

You could do what InspGadgt said. But we really didnt enforce that rule cause some of the direct drives we raced were oval cars that were converted to F1 cars. So we changed that rule to Foams or Rubber. I raced a F201 in our series and i used foams from a nitro onroad that where 30mm and trued them to be same size as the rubber tires. We have alot of things things being added for our upcoming season. We will allow lipos and brushless for our 6 cell class. Should be alot of fun
