Luosi, is that a FGX body underneath that beautiful Red Bull scheme you did? If so, that is the best looking FGX body I have seen yet. I generally don't like the FGX body as much as the Tamiya F1 bodies, but yours is nice!

It depends on the body style for rear wing. I run the TRG Advanced rear wing on my F103 with a Tamiya front wing and TRG M91 body (MP 4/7). The rear wings hold up well, but not the TRG fronts. I tore up 5 of the TRG Advance front wings and shelved my favorite body for over year. I picked up 4 for the McLaren front wings when Tamiya did the reissue last year. Haven't ruined one yet.

That was just sold recently. It was originally a Team car made into modern art after McLaren won the championship, or so the hi-story goes.

Same as the others, the TRG Advance rear wing, or if you need a bucketful of rear downforce the TRG (or Cross - same wing) standard rear wing. A TRG diffuser also helps stabilise the rear while protecting the spur and wing from damage.

Front wings depend on balance. Currently using Tamiya McLaren MP4/6, Tamiya Sauber or TRG standard, which are all very similar in design.

Hey Oscar,

Welcome back to the F1 scene
What you can try is the CRC Shorty lipo pack.
It is 4200MAH and fits perfectly under the topdeck.
It is 96MM wide.
Reedy has them also as has Losi.
Reedy is i believe 4000MAH and the Losi is 3800MAH.
Enough for you to play with if you use the silvercan motor.

regards Roy

Wanted to share some pics of my f1. This is my first f1 body in over 15 years. It is a tamiya f104 body with the tamiya decals mounted on a fgx with the rabbit conversion.

6376vette, your F60 body looks nice on the FGX chassis. I have noticed that everyone, including you, cuts away a section of the rear of the sidepod around the motor area; does the body not fit well in that area?

Since the fgx has the two horizontal shocks for the rear suspension mounted to the upper deck you have to trim the body to clear the shock shafts. This was the only area that had to be trimmed on the rabbit. Everything else was cut on the body cut lines. If it were mounted on a full fgx the body would need to be trimmed differently to clear the stock front arms but since the rabbit uses f104 arms it fit perfectly. The attached picture shows where the body was trimmed. If you look close you can see the fgx shock bell crank for the shocks. I will post a pic of the shock shafts tomorrow so you can really see what is going on.

Even the stock fgx body must be trimmed for proper clearance.

CF upper and lowerdeck conversion for the FGX to use F104 front end, instead of the glass FGX front end.
