cheers Vyger

the wings are the Tech Racing "Type A" wings...
the rear wing is VERY low compared to most but has 2 adjustable surfaces (and the front wing has one)

the tyres are TRG rubbers..
the fronts are the hard compound tyres (TRG2101) and rears are standard (TRG2201)
grip levels on asphalt WITHOUT compound was very nice with the default setup of the F103R
i think temps above 55 degrees C dont suit the rears very well (but the hard fronts loved it) and become a little greasy, although still competitive
(won 4/5 races against guys using foams and compound)

i would like to try the TRG superion tyres next, but dont know if they are suited to asphalt or carpet, hot or cold temps etc...

-Mark

Which team stickers do you need PA? I've got a few spares I could sell off of the D-Drive sheets.

I bought the 90s set for the McLaren stickers and the 08 set for the BMW stickers. I did sell the Toyota set off the 08 sheet, but the other 2 sets are still there if you look at the D-Drive site.

I painted it up with the Nigel Mansell Williams Renault colors (yellow, blue, white). So Canon, Camel, Labatts, and Elf would have been nice. Its painted similar to Vyger's avatar.

I believe that set, including helmet stickers is on that sheet. I'll check tonight.

Just giving you 103 guys a headsup here. From the interest that is growing it looks like the 2010 F1 Builders Cup race will be in Madison, Wisconsin. I'm being pressured (not really) to have the event there and so far it looks very promising.

The 2009 event will still be somewhere in N. Georgia, date will be given soon.

Ok liljohn, the word is given. Start getting the word out to the peeps. And get them in a F1 car!
