Formula 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 at JP Raceway.

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.

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 magnetism enhancement.
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.
