This is a no compromise Kit designed for just one purpose...winning. It's as simple as that. No hard sell required, the CRF-1 was designed from the ground up to allow the end user to adjust every conceivable parameter in the steering, suspension, chassis geometry and grip characteristics.
It includes a full set of Carisma team suggested option parts as standard, allowing the racer to then choose the body type, the correct wheels and tires for the tracks they race on, and their choice of electrics.
For the Racers, For the Drivers...
2WD, and specifically F1 is a true drivers class, and possibly the closest thing in RC to the thrill of 1:1 racing. Many factors come into play to make such a successful chassis. It's about the ease of setting the car up to suit the track and it's surface, and just like it's full sized counterpart, testing is the key to it's success. The prototype was extensively tested in both Asia and Europe, then from that data the final production model was born, with its compliment of performance hop ups supplied as standard issue as recommended by team drivers.
Take the baseline set-ups and tweak them to your own driving style. Push the limits of it's straight line speed and both on and off power grip in the corners. Slow in, fast out is the name of the game and getting that all important podium position is the ultimate goal. From a stock class club racer, to a full blown national or international contender, the CRF-1 takes it all in stride, and leaves no-one wondering as to its true intent...
