Default Best F1 Chassis?

Hi,

I am thinking of buying a F1 car for the winter.

What is currently the best chassis?

Tamyia?
Yokomo?
VBC?

any other?

Thanks!

Best wishes from Austria,

Alex

I have only driven two cars F104v2 and a TRG. from looking at the cars at our track the best cars are TRG or a F104W those cars look the most stable and the easiest to drive. I have a F104v2 and it is harder to drive then both those cars I mentioned above. You have to find a car that fits your style! IMHO

Hi there!

Im recently getting involved on the F1 scene, and along with reading the F1 thread on this forum, I found this guide useful:

Ahh, Im not allowed to post Links yet - Try RCformula1 .com.au and check out the buyers guide sections.

It covers all the popular chassis available.

I went for the TRF101 in the end.

Tha answer is the one driven by the quickest driver.....

Honestly there is no right answer to this question, TRF101, yokomo, VBC, 3 racing, they are all good cars in the right hands,

Having recently switched from a Exotek to a Yokomo there was virtually no difference in my times, the only difference was the yokomo was on the pace from the word go.

All the F1 cars are great, but just throwing the new Speed Passion SP-1 F1 into the mix.

Last year, our F1 series winner was just running a really old F104 Pro with very little modifications. He's still running the car and winning races. Our track owner also runs an older F104 with very little mods. All comes down to driver...

I guess what would help is if your club allows 200mm wide cars or is it strict at 180mm, 190mm, etc.

Doh it was the Speed Passion Reventon 1.1 he was using :P

Either way F1s just look badass and don't break like TCs. All are great
