    Default F1200's are a handful

    I was reviewing my video from this last weekend and realized that I had some interesting footage of my hands.
    This is R1...where my camera is still decently clean (oil, bugs, etc)
    This is the last lap...me and my teamate (red car) lost the draft and we were just trying to get some fast laps in (his first race)
    Have a look at the feedback on the wheel and the way the front wheel dances.
    You don't realize how much you are working to keep the car smooth...kinda nuts. (check T3 and T8-10)

    FYI- At the beginning I let my teamate pass into 8...to set him up for the last lap. Both cars are absolutely equal...I pass him on the straight purely from the draft...pretty cool

    Very cool.

    I wonder how much easier/controlable it would be to drive with an independent suspension keeping that wheel from "dancing".


    Super fast for what is like 60hp, correct?

    yup...56-59 hp.
    The entire front end is stock 1965 beetle...incl. steering. But everyone has the same setup.

    It's fun when you're having to work to keep under you. Being stuck to the road and driving well under the limit is just like driving on the highway, albeit a little faster.

    Awesome driving as usual, Kev.

    This ones good.
    Start of Race 1 last weekend. We were 3 wide at the top of T2. Things got a little tight at the exit.
    When I got back to the paddock...I had to explain the white paint on the right side tires. lol
    I was totally expecting a big impact...way lucky this time.
    Turns out I had some nutty camber on the back...which induced some snap oversteer...and cold tires didn't help

    Looking at the first vid, they look like a lot of work to drive these little cars. Takes skills

    That looks like a ton of fun.
