A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Got to see this chassis up close this weekend.
It's a work of art.
Nice job Mike.

Gotta nit pick a tad on the advertisement on Exotek's web site...it is not a 5 link floating rear suspension on the EXO104. It is what is commonly referred to as a "link" type rear suspension but definitely not a 5 link. More specifically it is 2 link center pivot that pivots not floats.

That aside it is a great looking chassis...I'm considering one for my Lotus

Default Link vs T-bar

I'm sure this has been asked and answered a thousand times, but I'm a pretty new member and despite having been through the various F1 forums, I don't have anything summarizing the pros and cons of each. Currently I have an F109 from 3Racing, and I like it, but what exactly are the advantages and disadvantages of the T-plate/T-bar chassis vs the link type? I run exclusively on unprepped, outdoor asphalt; the car will likely never see carpet. Thoughts?

Outdoor and/or bumpy track conditions the 109 (in my opinion) is the car to have.The link setup will keep things planted better over bumps.
I have a 109 two 103 and a 104 (wolf).
The 103 is faster on smooth carpet or very well prepped asphalt (must be smooth and grippy).

I also think the 109 is a better rubber tire car (overall).
My 2c.

The body for the McLaren is in multiple pieces, I wonder how it will hold up during a race. Tamiya should re-release some of the old F1 body sets.

Anyone know, give or take, what the shipping cost for D-Drive to the US is for a kit?

Or does anyone know of somewhere in the US popping current F1 sponsor decals?
nevermind on the decal sheets, found what i needed, much cheaper on ebay thanks to a local friend

I'd love to look myself but they're still on vacation

Hey guys, another question about getting our f1 class off the ground. We want to run a spec tire and wheel. I cant seem to find any available mounted tires w/wheel, but what Im wondering is if the HPI f10 wheels are compatible with the tamiya/3racing hubs.

I guess the other option is running the tamiya tires and wheels, but if they dont fit the HPI then we will have the same issue, just in reverse.
