I would if I still had it. It shipped off to its new owner on Friday, and he is already in possession of the car. Most of the cars I post on here are customer commissioned. I have my own stuff, but lately I hardly get to work on it which is a good thing. I am also working on generating artwork for a number of decal sheets of this years cars, among them Lotus T128, Renault Lotus R31, RedBull RB7. There will be more after that, but those 3 are the primary focus at the moment. I dont have cost or timing yet, but i should in the next week or so.

Default My take on a Classic

Hey, new to posting here and rather new to the RC world but a huge fan of F1 and in lieu of not having the money, or the skills, or connections or anything remotely close to a racing life I decided to do the best next thing. Enter the RC world.

Anyway, my love for the sport started the first time I saw the Lotus John Player Special driven by Ayrton Senna in the Mexico GP in 1986. So I decided to build my F104 Pro with what I think the livery would be like if cigarettes would still be allowed to sponsor the cars. I ordered the decals on ebay and one of the sets came all the way from Italy!

I hope you like them.

PS: I'll upload the my version of a F1 livery with the Tamiya F104 body set along with my two other cars in the following post since this only allows 5 pictures a post.

What kind of paint and prep work are you guys using on the front and back wings? Also, where do I get the t-bar camera on top? Thanks.

wings are kinda hard to paint as it cracks and flakes under impact(s). try using adhesive vynal,works pretty good. the tbar camera thingy comes with a 3racing f104 wing set.

Default Mine Cogs, yours?

Hey guys, I also have a question for you. Under the hood of the JPS three or four posts above I am running the Sidewinder Sport 5700kV System with the SV2 ESC, the DX3E Spektrum and a 5000mAh NiMH stick pack. A pretty sweet kit for a noob if you ask me but lo-and-behold the thing cogs. I went to local hobby shop and they told me there is pretty much nothing to do unless I buy a new LiPO set ($100 at least and that won't totally fix it, he said) so my question is: Would a LRP BEC Stabilizing Cap help a bit?

Or is there another solution besides changing my battery system?

Thanks

The battery has nothing to do if it cogs...that is entirely your ESC/motor combo. I'm not familiar with that system but if it is a sensorless system then that is your problem. If it is a sensored system then you are having a problem with the ESC reading the rotor position. This could be a result of dirt on one of the sensors in the motor, a broken sensor board, a broken sensor cable, or something wrong on the ESC where the sensor plugs into it.

Who's going to the IIC Race in Vegas this year ?

I was talking to a group of folks this past weekend who are all going and the idea of running F1's as a 2nd class came up... Turns out Hiro knows Scotty... Hiro contacted Scotty... and here's the deal...

Scotty is willing to have a F1 rubber class if we can get 20 entries... This is totally doable considering people will be coming from around the Country...

So If your going to IIC this year and want to run F1 rubber, please add your name to this list and lets see if we can get 20.... Only put your name if your intending to go, writing your name down just to help the cause wont help Scotty gauge the turnout...

Yes, it is sensorless.. didn't know the difference when I bought it. Like I said, a total noob here. So, are there any solutions? A Capacitor? A new electronic system? Throwing it away??!

Cheers Gadget
