What motor?

If brushless blinky or boosted?

I would ditch the tamiya gears. Most people I know have issues with them. Plus the extra balls in the diff always helps.

I figuredsome would have issues with the .06 pitch. I am debating between the SP 21.5 MMM, Novak ballistic 21.5, or the new schuur hope I spelt that right motor. It will be blinky with a Tekin RS.

Personally I never had any issues with tamiya pitch and I use 64p for my f104 (which is very similar to the tamiya pitch). Though I was definitely the exception at my track.

For 21.5 blinky and that size track I would start at 2.5:1 ratio and go down from there. I'm running that with a team epic revtech 21.5 on a similar sized track.

On the F104 bodies, do you guys use shoo goo or servo tape to attach the side pods and miscellaneous body pieces?

Currently cutting out my Ferrari F60 body.

I normally use both the supplied double sided tape & a little bit shoe goo to insure a solid bond.

I tried clear silicone on my current Lotus FGX body. Works really well

There is a lot more coming very soon. But due to the fact that I am 1 guy and I havent figured out how to create time yet, I need to jump back on the body painting and chassis building activities. Do note though that if I have a body job that requires a decal sheet that I dont do yet, I will create it for that job and have it available for sale almost instantly.

What is that last Lotus one? I don't recognize it.

Any plans to do one with striping for the FGX?

The last one is this years Lotus, Kimis car if you will. If you look close, the graphics are not gold, but a tannish pale yellow color

I also have the sheets done for the missing McLaren decals. I used them to do this one

and a close up of the cockpit

The Benetton B188/89 sheets are also done, but the first print that I ran the green was way too dark, so I went in and changed the color. As soon as I run another one I will post a picture

BP SHADOW; to paint the E20 car do I just need to spray the whole body black or is there some gold that needs applied?

Thanks Brad, hopefully I'll see ya around at the track sometime soon.
