Welcome. This is the main section of RCCarTips.com that discusses everything about radio controlled Formula One cars. Beautiful photos, exciting videos, in-depth reviews, fun race events, cheap buyer's guide and more.
If you are looking to buy a Formula One car for the very first time, I would recommend you buy 1/10 Tamiya F1 rc cars. Why Tamiya? Because of realism (officially licensed bodyshells) and you have more models to choose from than any other brand. Tamiya has produced F1 rc cars since the 1980s, so you can buy a Formula One body style based on the era you want going back to 1980 up to the modern design.

Above: The most expensive kits are the new 1/10 Tamiya F104 version 2 that uses a link type rear suspension.
Another popular kit is the 1/10 3Racing FGX. Just slightly larger than Tamiya, it is gaining popularity because the chassis is more realistic with independent rear suspension and, soon to come, front independent suspension with inboard shock absorbers just like the real thing.

Above are electric powered. For the ultimate realism there are nitro powered models. Though not as popular nor as fast as electric, the engine sound and smell of exhaust fumes add so much to the F1 experience.

While it is fun to simply play in parking lots, you can add more excitement by joining races. In the USA there is a good series called the UF1. There is also the Tamiya World Championships, where there is an F1 class. Or just have fun joining local club races.
