Ok Guys here is a few shots with the body off showing how to mount the chip and also there is about 5-7g lead behind the led and two round magnets sat on top of the rear original flat magnet, it would also be possible to use 2 smaller flat bar magnets or break a flat bar magnet into 2 smaller pieces to just leave enough room for the axle gear to not hit any magnets. Other than that i fitted a set of Homemade urethanes and tried to keep the body loose with a small amount of Float, and glues the rear bearings and axle. Also when fitting the chip i removed the ferrite man from the guide end and ran the wires direct from the guide to the chip but make sure there is a ferrite man fitted to the motor.

I also have quite a few of these on their way from the UK, and still have at least 3 left out of that batch available and i will order some more in the next 2 weeks once the first batch has arrived

Guys from testing over the weekend i have found a few more things to help them go better. Try to get the body loose and float a little, also glue the motor as they move alot and can cause chatter and try to get the weight behind the led around 10grams and also if using my tyres or MJK F1 tyre they need to be trued down a little remove at least a 1 or 2mm this will help to tie it down to the track i have got mine to do an 11.8 sec lap so far

John, There was talk of limiting their speed.
Are we going to run a break out type race or are you going to make sure every F1 can run around the 12 secs/lap.
Or is it a fastest wins category ?

Cheers
Kev.

Thats news to me about speed limiting. All the cars i have setup will be around the same lap time as the loan car i setup months ago has gone quicker than 11.8 and my race car will get faster probably too as i true the tyres down (mine was around 12.4 before really truing them down) the only reason i have not done 11 sec lap in other cars i have setup is that once i set them up i do a couple of check laps to see if they feel similar to my other that i setup then leave them to the owners to true the tire down ect but from testing the more i true my tires down the quicker the times are getting and easier to drive too not that they are hard. I dont think anyone will get much of an advantage unless they get a freak stock motor cause once chipped there is not alot of room left inside to do anything. Once we get a few meets done with them they should produce similar racing to the Nascars being everyone has the same body, motor and chassis. I look forward to next meet
