1 RC Cars
Manila, Philippines - We
race the Tamiya F103 and F104
rc car kits. Out of the box, these are very fast, competitive, and
cheapest rc race cars you can buy. Below is a beautifully done model
from Hector (hgcolors).
You can buy these at
Lil's hobby shop. Visit the RC Hobby
Shops section of this website for location and phone numbers of the
shops. Then check out the racing events
schedule and join us in racing
Simply buy the Tamiya F1
kit, a cheap Futaba radio controller,
1600SP Nicad battery pack, TLP battery charger, and a cheap TEU
electronic speed controller. All in all you can have a racing machine
for less than PHP14K.
Below is F1 rc racing in
Japan. Hopefully soon we will have as
many racers here in the Philippines.
See you soon in our F1
races in JP Raceway. Just approach any
of us, we are friendly and willing to help you get started in rc racing.
F1 RC Rules (tentative)
In general, to have fun.
Bawal nakasimangot sa driver's stand :)
Body - Must look like F1. If you have le mans, feel free to join.
Chassis - Open, but preferrably the Tamiya F1 chassis.
Engine - Only 2 hole Mabuchi/Johnson 540 sealed motor. No tampering, no
Tires - Open, but preferrably the Tamiya F1 rubber or foam tires. Must
be F1 type tires.
Battery - Open.
Race etiquette - To encourage everyone to have fun, no lapping rule is
in effect. Racing all the way!!! If you are a faster driver, find a way
to overtake the slower cars (if you can)!
Race format - Fastest lap qualifying. In general 10 minute races and
sometimes a 30 minute race with pitstop. Will vary race formats to keep
us all challenged. But always be ready to race for at least 30 to 60
minutes total per race day.
