hm...not sure, if the results would be that good...thought about covering the foil with a thin layer of clear paint...somebody has experience with this? does it work, or is the paint pealing off?

Check out this YouTube video of the 20-minute-long F1 A-Main Race at the LRP-HPI Challenge in Hamburg, Germany...

What a MASSIVE track! Could you imagine driving for 20-minutes of non-stop F1 racing?

Here in Holland we run a 7 minute sprint finale and a 14 minute main finale at the Dutch Tamiya challenge with F1,TC and M -chassis.
It is a blast.
If you make a mistake, you can get back to the front when running in the 14 minutes finale.
No movie fromt it tho
Only the one from TC is taken.
Track is this one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GC6os...ature=youtu.be

regards Roy

Yup, I can... TITC A-final was twenty minutes (with a mandatory pitstop to change tyres), and the SGP1 A-finals are 30minutes non-stop... tough, but good fun!

For the watch on the front of the body, I printed it out and used RC Picture Glue as seen here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqr1Xk6MujY



This was my frist try and it worked nice. It is important, to add also the picture glue on the back and sides of the paper to seal it. I used waterbased paint and the paper did not absorb any of the 3, 4 layers of paint.

Thumbs up

Well done to the mods that deleted my post(s) relevent to the O.P.

Well done to Nico Rosberg / Mercedes AMG Petronas !! I'm sure the good result will inspire a few extra 1:10 replica bodies around the traps ...

Dude, don't be that guy that posts results to the 1:1 racing ok?

It's already been discussed here and in most every forum here that no one wants to hear about the results since DVRs are our second favorite toy outside of RC racing.

He hasn't learned from his first mistake....

I already saw the race but spoilers do indeed suck!

There is a dedicated F1 thread in the chat lounge for that stuff...
