With the new Pn cup rules for F1 what motor would you run in your F1 with the stock asf board? The 33 turn, the 35 turn, or do you know of another choice? Our club runs mainly F1 and we currently allow the x speed or speedy 07.

I usually run a speedy05 when I run my F1 mod. Thats probably what Ill run if I make it out to any regionals this year. For me the F1 is all about carry speed, and thats pretty easy to maintain with the super low CG. With the finicky rear end I find it hard to hold on to punchier motors. If I get in a situation where its just not enough power, Ill run a speedy 07 with some hotter batteries. Its still pretty linear, and more speed than my set ups (and skills) can ever handle :D

I would probably use a PN AWD II or III motor. I want more drag brake and punch than the Speedy 07bb, which for me rolls too much (especially in F1). The F1 is pretty heavy, so the additional punch is helpful. I typically set my cars up for more rear grip, so they handle better with motors that have more drag brake. When I use a Speedy 07, I usually need a front tire with more bite, so I can scrub more speed entering the corners...

Motor choice for me really depends on track layout and grip conditions. I want to use as much motor as I can put the power down without making it a chore to turn laps. If the rear is kicking out when you are exiting the corner, it is either too much motor or too much front grip.

Right now I usually have the Atomic Stock BB or Standard BB motor in my F1's if I dont have to use a handout or PN motor.

Thanks for the input. I have tried the atomic stock r and it is almost undriveable. The pn motors seem to be a little smoother in thier power delivery so I will get 35 turn and see how it performs and if I can even drive it with this much power. Can I use this motor on a stock asf board?

Yup:D Perfectly safe with 2x2 3010's on an 2.4-ASF board.

Just finished up a test and tune session with the 35 turn. It is way too powerful for my limited driving skills!!! I was almost 3 tenths of a second slower with it than the speedy 07 that was in my car. A very skilled driver would be able to control it and may be able to get it to be more consisitent, but I need a lot more practice. Here is a pic of the track I tested it on both clockwise and counter clockwise. Thanks to Mini az for the track idea.

Just picked up a F1 and with it's stock Kyosho X-Speed V in gearing it to the highest, it seems to be very controllable in my chassis set up on PN Reg. layout. I am attempting to find something more punchy so I may drop in my spare Speedy AD but hopefully it will not make it a handful. Lots of tuning & getting use to it before the PN Reg.

Tried out my spare Speedy AD & try to gear down but didn't make it easy. Too much torque in kicking stock rear end out so end up slowing down too much in corners which is how I 1st.time breaking the stock front wing & bent bumper. For now, back to stock Kyosho X-Speed V since good enough in speed & handling for me. Should I next to try out Speed 07 since is it can be controllable with some additional gain?

I finally got the Mantis T plate in conjunction with PN Motor Pod and Kyosho's Carbon Friction Shock set. Ran it with the Speedy AD motor and Kyosho's Ball Diff. Rear end finally is planted without the annoying hop but had to gear down to pin. 6 just inorder to get the Speedy AD to have some torque at infield but run of steam on fast straight.
Tonight finally picked up new PN's 43 Turn motor in last minute before closing and gear up to max 9 pin. It ran very smooth and seems to have nicer top end speed but I expected more low end Torque which don't seem to be there. I think it is maxed out in the combination so I guess I will live with it since it is drivable. Of course I was running with my worn play pack of TRP 900 batteries. So maybe when I have chance to run it with freshing up weekly race packs & motor is more broken in, it may have more punches to it.

I ran speedy07 with mantisworx lower plates. It feels that it can use more power without loosing rear traction. Once I get FPR's F1, for sure I'll test run it with mod motors such as PN32 just to see how fast I can get this F1 going. I'll keep you guys posted.
