XRay X1, CRC WTF1 are both very good cars. The cheapest one that is easy to drive is the Speed Passion SP1.

I just built an Xray X1, -It is a very nice car.

I was looking at the Tamiya F104, but it requires many upgrades which puts the cost above a stock Xray X1.

Can't speak to any of the other brands.

Don't overlook the Serpent F110-SF2. It's a fantastic car with no issues. The previous model the F110 had a few quirks but the F110-SF2 is flawless. I'm quicker with it than all the Xray's at my local track

I had the F110 and liked it. It drove great. The only problems I had was the hinges on the front suspension broke easily, the shims and lower mounts would move during the race, and the rear lower pod plate would break right at the screw holes. But, when fresh, the car was very fast.

If you are able to run wide F1's then the bog Std F103 is still very fast, and it can be picked up for peanuts

I guess if you hit stuff any F1 will break.
I have just picked up a used F110 and really like it and drove it back to back with my TRF101W and its got a lot more rear grip than the TRF or any other F1 i have tryed but still has good steering.
We run 200 foam set up so the front blocks arent an issue as you dont have those small thick alloy spacers under the arms so they dont move around.
When the SP2 comes with the wide set up as an option i think i will be getting it

I recommend the Xray X1 - Formula One Car . It is tough as nails and it handles like a dream.

If you want pretty, get the Sakura FGX. The only 1/10th in production with pushrod suspension!

No I'm not a rep for 3Racing... I just have no carpet track to race on locally- so i've gone full scale.

The F110-SF2 has removed all those weak links and is MUCH better!

And my X1 has never broken anything other than a couple rear bearings.
Also, I just placed in the A at the MHIC, I don't hit much, lol.

That's why I almost bought one, but I fell into a X1 and love the car. I still would like to try the SF2 though, lol. And thanks for not telling me I can't drive, lol. Those were known weak points in the F110.
