f1 is just strictly track only use......or if not you need a surface bang on perfect.

i run an onroad most of the time and i run it in a very good aera,its higher off the ground than an f1 so this helps as the surface is still bumpy at speeds.....

if i was running an f1 there it would be ripped apart by now.

they are very nice but very low......
F1's are no different from any other 5th scale on-road. The suspensions are fully adjustable, ride height included. You can run one on the same parking-lot you run your sportline on. They are NOT track use only. I run an RS5 that has a full carbon fiber monoquoque chassis, and i run that occasionally on a parking lot. Just change the ride height to suit the conditions.

F1 are the best handling cars full size or RC.

well thats funny man cause i have had one before and i smashed up the front bumper loads of times even though i ran it on the track and had steering height adjusted.

f1 are nice but not everybody rathers them over a sportline car.....

there is a lot of parts that need upgrading on the stock plastic model,take a look at the amount of alloy on a comp model and ask yourselves why?

they break up, simply because big and heavy.....and break faster than a sportline.....

guess thats the price for having a faster machine.....

i would still like another one sometime.
