We are back to racing F1's on a weekly basis up here!  The change to 25.5 motors has brought interest back to the division!

I don't do social media so I would not know. There was a good showing a few times at WSR. Most of the bodies ran was WRC(I even have one). I think I may have given away all my 21.5 motors, haha.

As long as they fit on a 190mm rubber f1 chassis. But you know how this works. As soon as people figure out which body is best, the class will 90% that one body. LOL I'm going to try the L1 from JConcepts since I don't have to get it from over seas. On FB I've gotten a handful of PM's so the interest is definitely there.

TAMIYA has a few and there are a lot of off brands from HK. I think many have the WRC bodies already.

I have a LeMans chassis but if you limit the body manufactures, you might kill it before it even starts. Everything else is cool. Just run whatever with simple rules and I think it would work out.

A lot of us have F1 chassis(s) sitting collecting dust. With the F1 class being split due to the 21.5 and 25.5 motor change, the class seems to be fading away.  My proposal to see if there is any interest, is to go LeMans.  The WRC or the JConcepts L1 bodies. Someone drew up a conversion kit on thingiverse, which I can adjust if needed or draw my own. I would make adjustments to the top shock mount, but that's irrelevant at this point. Instead of spending $$$ or how ever much it is to buy the conversion, I can print the parts, No thread jacking please, just looking to see if there is interest in something new. Thank you.

 

LeMans Body - WRC or JConcepts L1

Motor - 21.5t

ESC - Blinky mode

Weight - TBD
