UF1 Pit Timer Box Build

The UF1 utilizes a unique Pit Stop system to further emulate real F1. This system not only looks cool, it also helps drivers use pit strategy to get out of traffic. Tim Ruwe, one of the founding members of the UF1, has come up with a stellar Pit Timer Box that helps both the drivers and the Pit Boss during the pit stops. He's written a How-To so other UF1 affiliates can make their own Pit Timer Box for their series. ...

Tamiya F104V2 Setup Sheet – Repsol Honda – Update

A couple weeks ago, Team Repsol sent over a copy of the setup they are using at TQ Raceway during the 2013 Winter Series. That setup was a good starting point for anyone running the V2, but now Fred Medel (Tamiya's main Marketing dood and Team Repsol Driver) has just updated this setup with a much more detailed version. This setup must be pretty good since Fred used it last weekend to put the hurt on a lot ...

Tamiya F104 X1 Setup Sheet – Team Lotus

Since everyone is loading up their setups, I thought it would be cool to upload the starting setup used by some of the Tamiya F104X1 drivers. This is a starting setup and might need to be tweaked depending on your driving style. You can adjust the amount of steering you need by how much sauce you apply to the front tires. Other than that, this should be a good start. You can download the .pdf below. Go get ...

Roche Rapide Setup Sheet – Benetton Ford

The Rapid Roche has been one of the surprising chassis to hit the UF1. In the 2012 Summer Series, Tony Tam piloted his Roche to quite a few Top 10 finishes, and now Benetton-Ford team driver Kevin Cole (AKA Panda) has wowed the crowd with some stellar performances (and his own list of Top 10 finishes). This car has been a bit of a secret as far as setup and what the Roche boys are running...until now. Follo ...

Mounting Pit Shimizu 0571 / 0572 on FGX Wheels

FGX Wheel Modifications for the F104 Shimizu Racing (PS-0572) or Tamiya (1032) Tires The FGX wheel diameter is too small to mount the F104 Shimizu tire; the gap between the wheel and tire is 2.5mm. I found that a sink mat is 2.5mm thick and is made out of rubber. This process is perfect for the project and this method can be applied to the front wheels as well. Here are the things you need: 1. Sinkworks 366 ...

UF1 Pit Stop Guide

UF1 racing format is unique in the world of RC racing. A single short qualifier followed by 3 fifteen minute rounds of heads up racing with an F1 like scoring system is very different from the norm.

The pit area is typically set up on a part of the track where speeds are slowest and is visible from the drivers stand. ...

Tamiya F104X1 Build by Rod Canare

This step is totally optional but I typically sand, seal, sand, and polish all of my carbon fiber pieces. The results are mirror finish edges and a smooth tactile feel when you handle the car. The F104 X1 comes with an FRP lower and upper deck as well as a carbon fiber battery hold down plate. This is my first experience with the latest FRP material that Tamiya utilizes and the quality of the cuts were a pl ...
