The class did decline, along with the other pancars. Good tyres compounds became hard to get; people moved to TC, and so on. This year however a couple of veterans at our track came together and we decided to all go F1 again this season. Should be a mixed field with Corallies, F103s, F109s, some homebrew. Not sure if there will be F104s, as people seem to be avoiding those. We'll be running foams, always have.

The amount of dislike for the Corally here is.. impressive :P
All cars ran 27T Stock motors, the pink 36 ones before the rebuildable versions.

One track was a flowing 1/10th Nitro track with 150ft main straight, where Tamiya's were faster but was no match for Corally's through the bends.

Another was a tight twisty 1/10 EP Touring track, where Tamiya cars were being lapped by Corally's (I borrowed one for a race and went 2 laps faster than my best with a F103)

Third was an indoor track, where non corally cars were mobile chicanes.


Only time Corally cars had a match was when placed against Pro10 cars (235mm pan cars)
