Thanks.

Lower wing more downforce on rear, where most of the weight of the F201 is...
Foam tires: compound on rear and just the outside edge of front tires

There's a drivers stand. It's not as tall as the one at TA, but you can see the whole track without a problem.

Is there a website that has the track itself on it?

Default Tues night SoCal

Quick reminder to SoCal racers---

Tomorrow, the 27th, is the 4th Tuesday---bring out your F201s and keep this class going. We had a great start last time, and should have a few more joining soon.

See you there!

Terry V.

Hi Neil--

No---not this time. Probably the local one, and I just have built a virtually box-stock F201 to start testing just for TCS.

Sounds like fun, though; hope all goes well for our little crowd of Southern CA F1 racers up there!

Great job to the 2003 F201 champ for winning the Newark regional. Someday I want to beat that guy!

Congrats on a great finish, Neil. You had a pretty rough start to the main, but hung right there. You definitely earned that podium spot.

Hey fella's, My wife's wanting to get into F1 so I need some advice. Is the Tamiya tuned chasis kit over rated or should i get the regular kit and hop it up as i go? I also have a F103 RS still in the box from 95. Don't know if i should build it or sell it. Any suggestion's?
