I'm a big fan of F1 as well. Would love to see more F1 action like mini-zfuel said.

I think one of the main obstacle for F1 is that Kyosho doesn't release nearly enough updated autoscale bodies to support the ever changing F1 world. And custom making your own body is just so highly specialised and difficult (if you can actually get a white unpainted F1 body, that is).

not a chance. there is a new body being released and hfay will have an f1 class starting season 6.

there are pictures posted in the rcx 2008 thread where it was displayed. probably the best made so far in my opinion.

season 6 starts this summer, check the hfay website.

Dead!! I hope not. I just bought one a few months ago. I finally got it working good (thanks Brian and Joe). I still cant drive that great but I'm getting better. I just got into HFAY this season and I'm excited that there will be a class for F1 for next season (July 08). I think having an F1 class in HFAY will be good for the F1 and get more people racing them.

F1 is great. Hope to see more people race it. I think if the race organizers spend a fraction of the time they spend on promoting MR02 and AWD the F1 class will grow exponentially. I don't know much about HFAY but it's good to hear they will be including F1 in there organization. Getting new bodies from kyosho will definitely be a plus. Also, making the white bodies more available would be nice.

I don't think F1 is dead, but it is not as popular as the other cars IMO. Plus not as much options for it as the MA010 or the MR02/MR015

I love the F1, and i'll slowly build my collection up. I just recieved my MP4/19 body(Kimi's ride of course!). What a pretty F1 car it is; too bad it wasnt that successful.

I'm glad to see the new McLaren even if it is the 2006 season one. Although the pewter color of the real car doesnt translate well in the photos. Guess i'll have to see one in real life to assess it better ;).

This is a good sign for my dream of a 2007 lineup of alonso/hamilton's mclaren and raikonnen/massa's ferrari. Just one more year...

i really enjoy racing my F1. It doesnt happen much but the car drives really well. My only gripe is you basically have two paint schemes available and it gets confusing as to who is who on the track....

I hope it isn't dead, I was planning to get one during the summer to go w/ my 02, i suppose i could get an awd but F1 is THE coolest on-road racing, crashes, passes and speed!
