Default Fenix Mistral F1

I thought it's the proper moment to open a channel to talk with Fenix Mistral enthusiasts.

Fenix Mistral 2017, using the 7075-T6 chassis, as raced at IIC 2017 by AJ Lorello








Definitely, we're using a very distinctive front end, that allow a very fine setup of the front geometry.

Caster, Camber can be adjusted on the fly, in tiny amounts.

Nice touch is that all the tierods and kingpin are in Titanium.

I like to use titanium wherever I can. A good compromise of lightness and reliability

Any question... feel free to ask!

299 Euros equals $353.04 at the current exchange rate.
TQRC has the Associated F6 for $330, the Tamiya TRF102 for $346, and they don't have the Xray X1 17 in stock, but it's $350 when they do. Sounds like it's right in line with its competitors to me.

Hey everyone, I've been working on a good starting setup for Black CRC carpet, using CRC/Tamiya tires. I'll have something posted this weekend. I've been trying to get something together, but my track has been changing carpets and layout the past few days. I can assure you, it's easy to drive. I've had four people drive it and tell me how easy it is to drive, and two of them don't run F1 at all.

Sounds like I need to get one. What non kit parts are you using so when I order one I get everything I need.
