Team Associated Factory Team F6 Formula 1 Build

Team Associated Factory Team F6 Online Build

I love all kinds of motorsports, but Formula 1 is probably my favorite. The cars are wicked fast, look amazingly sleek and can corner faster than anything else out there.

I guess that’s why I really love the 1:10 scale F1s as well. So, of course, there’s no surprise that I had a grin on my face from ear to ear when I heard Team Associated was seriously thinking about jumping into the F1 arena. Then there was the rumors of an actual car spotted at the track. Finally, a press release filled with lots of pictures.

So here we are, mere months after the sneak peek photos swept the internet, I have a production F6 sitting on my bench awaiting a build. But before we get started, let me list the additional parts I’ll be including in the build:

• #8023 Team Associated Factory Team F6 Formula 1 Car,
• #FUTK4905 Futaba 4PX 4-Channel Transmitter,
• #FUTM0158 Futaba BLS571SV S.Bus HV Steering Servo,
• #27310 Reedy Zappers 3600mAh 7.6V LP Shorty LiPo Battery,
• #27004 Reedy Blackbox 510R Competition ESC,
• #287 Reedy Sonic 540-M3 25.5 Spec Motor,
• #1538-30 Protoform F1-Fourteen F1 Body,
• #PS-0577 Pit Shimizu 577 Front Tires,
• #PS-0572 Pit Shimizu 572 Rear Tires,
• #29276 Team Associated XP F6 Red LED Taillight,

I also like to include some other useful tools I used to build this car.

  1. I just stumbled onto this blog and find it exciting that Team Associated is finally entering the F1 arena. I have been a Team enthusiast since I built my first RC 10 back in 1986. I have not built one for a while and look forward to investigating this new product.
    Thanks for this info.

  2. Ya, I heard a LONG while back that they were looking into this market – glad to see them finally jumping in even if it’s a little late.
