lol I'm back down to only 2 F1s, gave an F109 to my brother, and scavenged the other for the Exotek. I wouldn't put it past me to have the F109 built up again soon though. I need atleast 2 spares to make it through a race day lately

The Buzzing Hornets Jordan would stand out really well on track. The Jordan guys brought a lot of fun to their F1 racing and still have a pretty good fan base. The less said about Eddie Jordan's choice of shirts on the BBC F1 coverage the better

A custom t-plate, a custom upper pod plate, and a little imagination I could see that happening without Tamiya's help.

I hear you loud and clear. I will go in and change it. Didn't realize how bad it was until I went back and looked at it

With no indoor track near and a serious itch to drive my F1, I took some drastic measures today. Removed a set of tires from the rims added at least 20 staples to each tire the re-mounted the tires. Then I went down to the frozen lake a shoveled a track and started driving.






I did not do any setup changes since the last time I ran on indoor carpet. Going to make some changes and see how it works tomorrow. Anyone have a good ice setup
