No shots of them with the bodies off though. Would be interesting to see what F104s were being run and what Hayato had done as well as fitting a narrow version of the TRG-111 front end on his F104.

I need some help from some vetrans. I am gluing up my tires. They are on the tamiya style rims. The back bead was a breeze. Now how do I do the outside bead without getting glue all over the damn thing?! Someone please help me out. Everytime I use even the smallest amount of CA it comes out onto the outside edge of the tire. Is there no way around this? I've seen a lot of pictures of glued rims without CA everywhere. So whats the trick? Less CA??

BTW, how did you feel about the tires, and what did you do to get your car working? I ordered and tried the tires a few batteries, and they seemed to be push-tastic on a car set up for Pits. Was the handout H1 front and rear?

Everyone was concerned about that choice of tires (Ride H1), but with the amount of grip available at the iic, and a little tuning they worked out quite well, many of the cars were still traction rolling, just like they do all the time with the pit tires on carpet

Mikes' new Exotec was easy to drive, especially considering how little attention I had to give it.
Running three 12th scale classes during the week kept me very busy.

Things should have gone better in the main, but due to the rather lengthy driver introductions, the tires went completely dry, and the car was on ice for the first few minutes of the race.
Lesson learned, when on rubber, don't wipe the sauce off till you're ready to drive

As for tuning, I removed the side springs, and added some pod droop.

Any one tried it?

I've seen Novaks, LRP, Cirtix and othe esc mounted in these cars.

But the Tekin makes the most sense with it's small footprint.

Thanks! I finally did get the hang of glueing them. I just used less glue and tried to keep the glue back about a 1/16th or so from the edge of the rim. That way when it did squeeze out it wasn't all over the face of the rim.

Once I had them about half way done I started second guessing what I was doing. I ended up pm'ing Lightfoot and he confirmed what I was guessing. I put the tires on backwards. only reason I'm worried about what they look like is because it's for a concours competition. Anyhow I baked the tires at 350 for 4-5 minutes and they popped right off. I have another set I'll make look pretty though. They are all on correctly now though.

I think you glued them badly....

You should have glued them with part of the rubber over the rim. I think...
