I am awaiting my new toy. As soon as I saw them I knew that I had to have one. I figure why not just skip all the regular types and go straight for the F1 ? So I got the Coulthard car. Pretty sweet if you ask me. But I have alot of questions.
1. How fast are these? I assume they zip right along but will I be satisfied?
2. How far is the range?
I am already plainning the turbo and Xmotor for it along with the recharceable batteries (not Nicad)
I love looking at the pics others have as well. Its truly cool to see a mini viper with lights that can actually drive. Too cool
flood, welcome to the Forums! Good choice on the DC! The car is about 11mph stock. Adding the turbo and X-Speed (or even better, a Mini-ZRacer.com motor) will improve this a great deal. The range depends on many factors, such as your location, but you can expect 30-100', and you can make several modifications to help improve reception.
hi flood... welcome to the forums... nice choice on the f-1... they're a lot easier to modify and are more stable, plus they have brakes...
looks like mr mini-z answered your questions... so i'll just give you a webpage... its a japanese site that modified the f-1's to include most of the cars on the whole grid... check it out... and welcome once again...
I wonder how long it takes to ship to the US from Hong Kong. I bought it through model shop online and it shipped the 25th.
I stated this in another post, but I can't wait to run the halls here at work. I work at IBM and we have hallways that are very, very long. I think it will be fun to cruise em. Plus I can run it from my desk. We have the low cut-pile carpet here and I think the car will run great on it.
I have already thought about a new motor and turbo upgrade for it. I really want it to haul. I am already addicted and I dont' even have it yet !! yikes
aint seen nothing yet bro
just got my second f1, so now its a family of 3: one clk, one ferrari and one williams. i'm right in the process of building a 15x12 feet track in the garage, just build a 4 lane laptimer and it WORKS!!!! monday the carpets will arrive, so some serious racing is just around the corner
one year ago i thought that "rc-cars and people who play with them are lame geeks"............
It took about a week to get here (colorado) from Hong Kong, which was faster than I had expected. The shipping was like 30 bucks and the car was about 100. After Nimh batteries and a charger from target everything was about 200bucks.
I had checked a local store for the mini-z and they were 160. SO I saved 30 bucks ordering it.
