I love that Lotus, one of the all-time great F1's.
That Corally looks rediculous......

Nice looking car Mr Revo!!!
Not to steal the thunder, but I picked up the first run of carbon fiber decals today.
I have wrapped a pair of 104 upper arms with it and it is great material to work with, didnt even need the hairdryer to wrap it.
My camera is charging, will post pics of a sheet of material as well as the arms shortly
Cost will be $12.50 for a 6"X12" sheet shipped to you or 2 for $20
From what I saw wrapping the arms, a sheet should do 3 cars maybe even 4

thanks for the comments. I was going to wait for the new f103 Lotus 99T to be released and do one then, but with all the rain we have had and the fact that I'm on holidays and bored I decided to give it a try on the F104 body.

BPShadow...thanks for your kind words .Could you please pm me the price of 2 carbon fiber decals to Brisbane Australia. Thanks.

I cant believe nobody said anything about the touring car wing mounted on the front of the car. This is what stands out of scale. The rest of the chassis looks fine. These Corally cars look really good with the 70s bodies,if you use F103 size tires like in the picture.

Stock spur gear is 48p. Did you mean 64p? If I'm not mistaken, you have to use a spur gear spacer. Item #54215, 3Racing or HPI POM gear ring. What number pinion gears do you need? I might have some spare Tamiya pinions. I need a couple TRF F1 dampers. I also have the brand new Tamiya M-Type front wing & nose. PM me.

The stock spur is a metric pitch...depending on the kit it may have come with the 04 module (fine) or 06 module (more coarse) pitch spur. Often they are referred to as .4 and .6 pitch or metric 64 pitch and metric 48 pitch. Though caution should be used when referring to them as 48 or 64 pitch because normal pinions will not mesh properly with them.
