Neil, everytime I see a pic of the new Williams F1 I keep thinking that it's a bobsled and not a car

Believe it or not Izzy, my setup doesn't work at Socal. Ted and Dennis easily passed me. I might have to get another F201 just for Socal.

I was thinking about getting a F201 for the TCS in March.
is the stock box kit all you really need to get to the medal round?
if not what are the must haves? The track is indoor asphalt with a lot of traction. Thanks.

I was wondering if anyone has hit on a good carpet setup for the F201 yet. I've tried a bunch of things and the car is ok, but not as good as I would like. any help would be appreciated.

Hi Ritchie, hopefully you will be able to make it. Looks like it's going to be a big race with lots of tv's to watch the Super Bowl. Let me know if you are going to make it.

Hey Gary, I personally don't have a carpet setup because there aren't any carpet tracks out here.....yet! However, I know the guy that represented Australia at the Tamiya worlds who has a decent setup. I'll ask him.
