Here is one for you guys. I picked this chassis up on ebay a while back but never ran it yet. It's a K's F1 chassis kit from Japan. Sorry the pics don't look so good. Curse you Iphone camera. LOL
Hey it kinda looks like this:

Nooo roro, don't do it!!

It's too purdy and rare(in the states) to run it. I'd display that in a glass display case with maybe a half painted F60 body.

Trick!

It's a tub chassis based on the F102.

After getting the newly re-released Tyrrell P34, I found and older P34 body kit on ebay. Not much to do since it is factory painted, except the self-cut rear wing holder. Of course that piece is crooked in all direction.
Since I don't like the look of the sticker decals, I printed them out on waterslide paper.

^^^ so that car is designed specifically for a Tekin? I don't see how anything else would fit on like 5mm of extra chassis?

This may just be me, but I'm not a big fan of electronics hanging outside of the car. There is still a small chance you could get T-boned and knock out the ESC or receiver.

Shouldn't be a problem. He could just add more chassis area(wings) under where the esc and servo sits. BTW, been running my electronics a little over the edge of my Losi Type R's chassis for years with no problem. If you get "T" boned well......somethings gotta give. I'd be more worried about the front suspension on that car.

Braddah Joe,
Yeah, was good fun but I broke my F104 in the second to the last heat. But no worries I'll be ready next race. We were all wondering where you were since you were pre registered. Anyway hope to see you next Sunday race. So ya think I should just put my new car under glass? LOL. Maybe after I put a body on it I'll bring it to the track so you guys can check it out. Take it easy Bro.
