Just do to their long history you can argue that Tamiya F1 cars are the most popular. Now there are so many options between Tamiya, Xray, Serpent, CRC, and more.

Most are using a shorty pack now for F1.

Default Interested in F1

I am interested in F1 , from what ive seen 25.5 is a better choice for indoors . If the track stocked them that would be good . I would buy one ( as long as it is not only Tamiya_)
