I have a 2018 Bud Bartos Retro F1, IRRA® slot car, chassis built by Bud at my request, has Hawk 7R motor, buds front wheels with ball bearings, also bearings on rear, koford crown ARP pinion, TQ clips and leed wires, only raced a few times, no major wrecks in great ready to race condition

$135.00 includes shipping. Selling off some cars because our track cut back on our Retro program to allow for more flexi racing.

This looks like the same car you have on ePay for starting bid of $125.

It is just thought someone here might want a good F1 at good price. If bought here I'll cancel eBay ad.

Hi,

 

Question what track did you run it on? What times you turning? And last how many races on motor.

 

Damn, first question should have been is it still for sale?

Thanks,

 

David

Bradford Racing...

 

FWIW: the Bartos F1 actually is a consistent race winner on many tracks and Retro events with minor variation in set-up. You can check out the many major Retro race reports here on Slotblog. Motor, gears, tires, braid are disposable components that are often typically changed. Your competitive racing skill set on any track is a key factor, therefore in my opinion the following two questions are really not relevant based on the sellers general description of the total car:  "Question what track did you run it on? What times you turning?"

 

In my opinion I believe this is a good deal, but I already own two Bartos based F1s that have been tested and ready for their maiden race very soon.   :shok:   

 

I have no connection to David Rodgers, just sharing my feedback since you are a newbie to Slotblog.

The F1 was ordered as a chassis by me from Bud. I assembled it with all top quality parts. I raced it once or twice and it handles as it should.

 

The only reason for selling is our track Atlanta Slotcar Raceway has adopted a 90% Flexi racing program with the full three-class Retro program dropped to one day per month, F1 class being the least raced resulting in most times it wasn't raced.

 

So rather than it sit and waste away in my box I thought someone would like to have it. As to being a good deal, the chassis alone with ball bearing fronts costs $135.00 add another $75.00 in parts to complete. So, yes, IMHO it's a great deal.

Since no interest here I guess for now I'll just hang onto it.
