As much as I can tell, that is the PF Fifteen on the new AE F6 car.

I like the Tamiya bodies and wings for scale realism, although they are older bodies. I run the PF bodies and wings on my VBC Lightning.

I'm eyeballing the the protoform f1-fifteen body for my personal paint body.

I ordered it from my LHS and I believe a couple other racers followed suit. We are all pumped about the alternate direct servo configuration among other features.

It says it's for Ackerman but i would think it be for more or Less weight in the front. You think I'm correct

Because the flag on a pole is supposed to mount Standard left to right.
On a military uniform think about the flag blowing in the wind and the soldier walking forward. That will tell you which direction the flag faces. The soldiers arm in this case is the flagpole.

I spent the first half of my life in service. This is the correct way to fly the colors.

Myself and other local F1 racers mostly want less slop and that traditional direct pan car feel but it also provides more room in the chassis, more weight distribution options and maybe less "servo tweak". I really hope the kit includes the parts for both servo mounting options - would be fantastic to have this option out of the box.

I'm sure it does. The setup with more parts would be the drag link setup.

Really stoked about the release of this car!

As for the servo mounting options, it is to give different chassis flex and steering feel. Track conditions will dictate what is best.

The pod is definitely the highlight of the car. The design is virtually tweak free and the prototype I've seen has proved very good!

This is why having a flag that is symmetric rocks! No questions on how to represent it. One less thing to worry about! #CanadaFlagRocks!

Just teasing you guys!

May be a bit premature (as the kits are not out in the wild yet), but I'm wondering about the compatibility of these front wings. I'd really like them for my Tamiya front end cars and it looks similar hole pattern according to bottom of the chassis. It looks like it'll take a Tamiya or Protoform or any other front wing (and rear for that matter), but the way the AE design looks like the Xray design so who knows.

I might just join the queue and race one of these just based on the looks of the wings. Don't judge me.

I was thinking the same thing. I'm gonna assume it's a protoform. Which is fine with me plenty of parts support

Ordering some parts for the F6 before it arrives, but a couple questions please....

That is the protoform fifteen body in the pics right?

What size sensor wire will work the best?

What gauge wire should I use?

Im thinking pit shumuzu tires on the gray schumacher wheels?

Anything else?

Looks to be the protoform fifteen body.
Use 16g wiring.
Sensor wire will depend on where you mount your esc.
Shumuzu's are always a safe bet, but I would see what the fast guys are running at your track.
I would pick up a set of exotek soft center spring kit for tuning.
Side springs, and front springs all for tuning to your track condition and grip.
