How bad is the slop compared to the stock arms?

Hey Guys,

The pre-lim round was a success!!! Right now, we have around 24-26 racers signed up all together for this series. That should make about 12 teams if everyone shows up consistently.

The pictures from the preliminary round are up on www.f1rl.com I have the list of drivers, finalized rules, and teams up on the website sometime this week

Does anyone out there have a good editable setup sheet for the F201 they'd like to share?

RCInfinity,

I'm working on that, should have them up tomorrow. I have more pro-drivers right now than sportsman, but not by much. If everyone showed up, we should have well over 20 guys, and around 10+ teams. If that's the case, it should be an awesome series

CF chassis is excellent!

I've got the 3 Racing chassis which came with all the alloy and harware as well for $65! There are some huge advantages with the chassis:

1. Motor runs much cooler (20*C measured last week)
2. much easier to work on the car
3. looks freakin' awesome!
4. won't warp

In short, Highly recomended!

I should be getting my 3racing chassis soon. Need to do some testing with it. I'm sure it will perform alot better than the stock chassis.

I have a C2 in my car and, to answer your question, with great difficulty! I have it mounted sideways in the electrics bay so the 3 posts that you solder the wires to are on the inside rear facing edge. The power button is just under the top deck and is not easy to get to. I don't have any pix, but you should be able to get it to fit in there and still access the button.
