3Racing does F1

During the off season I suffer from Formula 1 withdrawal. I think about F1 constantly but I know from experience that every season brings new challenges and it is ridiculous to speculate until the new cars hit the track.I wish RC F1 had the same following here in the US that it does in other parts of the world. I have actually figured out a way to increase its popularity. Money. Cold hard cash. If you off large cash prizes people will show up to compete. It has been an unwritten rule in RC racing that large cash prizes bring out the competition. Maybe its time for some real racing promoters to get into the RC scene and make racing fun and cool.

My plans for a snow bash part 2 were dashed with 15 inches of snow. Way too much to RC in.Maybe it will freeze over the weekend and my truck will be able to float on top of it. We'll see.

This F109 seems to be the best F1 car on the market right now. Looking at it now I would have to agree. The price is pretty good too. Check it out.
3RACING is one of the most famous RC optional parts manufacturers in the world. We have over 20 years of experience in the RC industry, that we are extremely familiar with the essential RC racing technologies. Today we like to announce the birth of our complete RC car kit - the ALL-NEW F109 1/10 Formula 1.

Formula 1 is the highest class of car racing in the world. We are very pleased to introduce the new 1/10 scale F1 kit, which is a high quality, durable, and extremely fast car offering the best possible handling at a highly competitive price.
Tweaking System
The traditional T-Plate design has been given up on the F109. Instead, a special mechanism basing on ball joint is used as the tweaking system to make the chassis more durable and stable. The new rear chassis design deploys a composite of a pair of ball joints and central pivot ball, plus side spring and monoshock as absorber and buffer. The up-and-down rear movement can be controlled entirely through the high capacity central shock.
Motor Mount
The motor mount was built using high quality 6061-T6 aluminum with a very versatile design. The height of the rear wing is also adjustable V it can be adjusted with 3 different degrees of up-and-down movement using axle adaptor 0, 1 and 2. It is fully tunable for meeting the demands of the modern day racing environments.

Weight Centralized
The battery is centrally mounted through a special Quick Change feature, allowing fast and easy battery replacement without the need to struggle through the limited space. As the battery is centrally oriented, weight can be centralized to allow for better control of the car as a whole.
Suspension System
The front suspension system is highly flexible in that camber adjustment is fully allowed. Springs of different stiffness are included in the package so you may fine tune the system as you see fit without the need to shop for alternative shock absorbers from somewhere else.
The chassis is built with 2.5mm fiber glass material which is strong and light-weight, and is much less costly when compared with its graphite counterpart. The car was tested with a high speed brushless system and the chassis was found to be of sufficient strength for sustaining the stress and load brought by the brushless horsepower.
