That "dude" is Nolan Farmer ... I mentioned in my earlier post. I even added my name to his list of morons who are willing to wait and buy a 1/10 nitro F1 RC racer!

The concept was cool, especially with the use of the FS-26c. Glad you have the patience to wait. It would be cool racing on the road courses we run our touring cars on. I just wish that someone other than Thunder Tiger or Serpent that was doing the nitro F1 concept (hear that Mugen, Tamiya, and Kyosho).

Acutally my patience is running out. If Serpent comes out with their 1/8t version, I'll get that one and that'll be it. I saw the real deal at last year's hobby show and even have a video of it at 3Hobby.net ... but its a static display only.

The Serpent rep there told me Salven just tested it just before the show and wasn't too happy with the handling. I guess that's maybe why they're still working on it.

I seem to remember some time back that HPI had a Formula 1 nitro Rc made from a Proceed.

You can read this post though while I look for it. Apparently Kyosho had one too.

This is still not the one I was looking for but it is an 1/8 scale Formula 1 and it looks like you might be able to purchase it.

Yes they do have one and I saw a thread on it but I'm so fixated on finding that link or image of the formula 1 Proceed that I saw that I didn't post the serpent, so here it is:

I think this is made by Kyosho long long time ago.

Thats a Kyosho F10... was out around/about 98-02. It was out in three versions, formula, sports proto (had this), and Toyota.. something.

Wheels and tires are from a Super10... just about everything else is spicific to the car... probably hard to find parts for. I have seen the 2 speed for it on foreign sites... and overseas eBay sites.

Search for Kyosho F10...see what you find.
