Well not only the arms...there are other areas that they could adjust to bring the car into 180mm like the off-set in the rear uprights as an example. Or even a combination like narrowing the upright off-set by 3mm and the arms by 2mm. I think it was ultimately not a good thing for the class that 3Racing chose to go that route. But perhaps Tamiya will pick up on it and maybe do a version of the F104 at 190mm.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but 190mm was standard since the Ta01. The original HPI RS4 was the only car that was able to do either 190 or 200. I see you point though, it wasn't true to scale like it should have been.



So I'm beginning to wonder: If a national set of rules (or even a international set) were to allow up to 200mm, would that mean that everyone would flock to 200mm for performance?
Don't know of a RC10 DS, must have been a US only car.
The cars was things like your 4x4 buggys, like Cats and Yoks, but used the 235mm Saloons bodies.

The TA01 was standard wheel at 180, and offset wheel could be 188.
YR4 was 190 with own wheel, and didn't use a hex, just a pin direct to wheel (like SC10 rear)

UK runs 2 classes, 190 Rubber and 210 Foam/Rubber, with the latter more popular.

i ran the pit ribs on the back and the 573 on the front. it wasnt too bad, but i didnt like having two kind of rims on the car.
im not sure if the 104 tires would work better, seeing that the fgx chassis has alot to offer in handling dynamics.

I'm not buying what everyone else has to try and keep up just buying what I want to improve myself and the car.
very well said there

F1 RC racing, Sydney style

This is Q2 at an SMA Tuesday night club meet. I was hoping the final would be up by now, but I'm very thankful to the guy who managed to capture this. Ignore, if you will, the two pan cars

After mulling it over for a while, since my only big problem with our rules here is the paint scheme, in the end it's a pretty stupid thing to keep me out of it. My concern is that at some point I'll get tied up with other cars that look like mine and will get confused. Fortunately real race teams will make subtle changes to differentiate each driver from each other so I've decided I will pick the real paint scheme that I want to run and will then just do a little highlight such as a standout color on the intake box/rollover structure or wing ends. Nothing pink or anything like that. It it's a Ferrari then instead of running black wing ends (assuming that's what they run), mine might be red. Something subtle like that but appropriate to whatever paint scheme is chosen. It's a believable thing that could happen in the real world and will still quite easily preserve the intent of the rules so hopefully no one would take issue with it. I just need to know for certain what car is mine should it be surrounded by others that look like it.

If you want to get really into it you can replicate a car from a certain race. The paint schemes on the full size cars will change from race to race. It may be one little sponsorship decal all the way up to a full car repaint for a special occasion.

Not this year, lol. As far as I read, all F1 liveries must retain the same paint-job for the entire series.

I think he is talking about in the real F1 car series not the rc series.

I've raced in fields full of Ferraris and haven't found it to be an issue, (finding my car) guess it could happen tho.

104 spec tyres all round... So car is narrow on the rear, wide on the front.

And that works? I'd be thinkin it'd push like a hard up crack dealer.
No widening for the rear even with 104 spec tires?
