Raising Red Broilers, has anybody hatched and raised F2 generation or more?

I'm currently doing a small batch of Red Broilers from Ideal. I assume they're similar to Red Rangers and Freedom Rangers. I've held back a few red Pullets in the past and they are good layers of large, brown eggs. I'm just wondering if future generations would be any good as meat chicks?
I'm planning to start a Dorking flock once I can find some Dorking chicks but I'm wondering if it would be worth hanging on to the best pullet and cockerel from my Red Broilers to see how they breed.
Any thoughts? I realize they're an F1 hybrid so that would be my main concern.
