Hello all. New to this forum, and pleased to be here. Some guys suggested I post a thread here to see if anybody wanted to get rid of their Mantis Worx F1 front suspension, or knew of where I could get one.

Might be interested in some of the other Mantis stuff as well, but what I really want is the "tri-link", suspension I believe it is called.

Please feel free to message me.

Welcome to the forums.

Not really sure about the tri link front end but for other great F1 hop ups I'd suggest looking at Useful Idiot Design.

I've purchased their front wing protector in both pre 2.4 and recent 2.4ghz and they are great value without changing the weight distribution of the chassis.

I've also purchased their side plates for F1. They really help the rear end rotate the chassis better than stock.

Mantisworx really had great products but since Marcus isn't around any more....:(

Can you post item #'s for the OP please? I scanned ebay and while I saw a few F1's, I didn't see anything Mantis

I'll 2nd the comment about UID F1 bumpers for both pre & post 2.4 design. Have bought both and with some minor grinding to fit each specific body they fit perfectly at correct height too and everything. In addition to advantages mentioned above I'll add that the black ones practically disappear visually once the car is running on track and also much easier on other cars in crashes than Mantis...move on to UID i'd say, it's even better.

I have to order those side plates next!

Thanks for the review!

I haven't been designing much lately but I do have a revision planned for the F1 sideplates, I also have a special request bumper to finish as well.

All I can say is... F1 is now a solid race class for us now that we're all protected front and back! No more chipped spurs and busted front ends!

I will have more designs for the F1 soon, I'm looking forward to some vacation days so I can get back to work! :D
