Team Mardave FP1 Formula 1 Car | CompetitionX

Team Mardave FP1 Formula 1 Car | CompetitionX

A new Formula 1 car is coming to market, this time from UK-based company Team Mardave. The FP1 is a 1/10 scale F1 ride that promises features like a multi-layer brace system to help tune the car to any track conditions, a fully-tuneable front end with wheelbase, track width, ride height, camber and caster adjustments, lightweight steel rear axle and carbon chassis. A long damper tube is used in the center (instead of a full-on shock) as a complete ball diff for tuning traction.

What We Like:
Besides the fact that Mardave is entering the F1 class (we love to see that), we also notice a few interesting items on the FP1 to take note of. First, the battery uses an o-ring as a hold down – not a new concept, but we think it’s one of the best ways to do it. The front end is a neat concept – we’ll be curious to see how it works. We’re also intrigued by the servo horn; the link can be raised or lowered easily by simply loosening the connecting ball – fine tune adjustments, here we come!

What We’re Not Sure About:
That center damper tube has us worried. Most high end race cars use a complete competition shock to control rear damping. We’ve never tried a single tube so it might work, just seems a bit odd to go that far off the norm. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
