I was wondering if Kyosho will be releasing a 2.4 F1 chasis, or if the F1 chasis is dead at this point?

Thanks,

check the hfay participation for the f1 class, it's certainly not dead :) i've already converted mine to 2.4 as many others have. improvization... if it's not given to us, we make ourselves.

The shop here has some parts. Also, they do have a sale on the AM readysets for $130 shipped

There are still people who are willing to buy the AM board if you do not want it.

F1 is definitly not dead. It gets overlooked at some of the big events, but it is still very strong at the club level IMO. I know the DoW guys have a strong following for it, as do the guys at HSH in NC. We run F1 here locally too. Those are just a few of the groups I have met people from. So Id say it is still alive.

As p-boy pointed out, there is parts support. Bodies are tough to come by, but I imagine that is a liscensing thing more than Kyosho not wanting to produce them.
