Thanks Charles, very high praise given how killer your shots are. Now if I could only get your Tshirt model to pose with my cars, I would have to quit my day job.

Do you know which Foam tires are good for Asphalt, relatively high grip.. I've got a set of rims already which are Tamiya foam rims, so i'd like to get some to fit them to save money.
For Tamiya foam donuts only, #84095 and 84096.
That's medium fronts and supersoft rears that closely resemble the Tamiya premounted tires that came on the 15th Anniversary F103. Harder fronts are useless. Use the traction sauce of choice for your track and do rears only at first. If parking lot rippin, it's a crap shoot but maybe Coppertone sunscreen for sauce, lots of it and let it soak.
Premounts are the hot ticket but pricey and I chose to forget the part #.

Many called them Barn Doors, so an easy error.
Barge Boards was the official name though.

I believe Carson is doing a West decal sheet.
Check e-bay and search on F103 and then ww
This one perhaps?--> http://cgi.ebay.nl/Carson-McLaren-Me...item1e66bfbfef

Default Mongoose/21.5 Combo for F103?

Has anyone tried using an 18th scale brushless esc in their F1 Car?

I know the Novak Mongoose was tested for 25.5 in VTA and passed the test well.

I'd like to run a 21.5 in my F103, but without an overly expensive or bulky ESC
