Had a fabulous time at the 2012 MuchMore Masters, here in Sydney. The most outrageous part was that someone who knew how to setup his car and drive won. The nerve!

Anyway, here's some photos for RC F1 fans to enjoy:

IF any of you are fans of RC F1 you need to make it down to Texas on june 16th!! this is our test race for our upcoming summer series! We have joined forces with UF1 now and expect 30+ entries locally hopefully more if we can get the Austin and Dallas peeps out. Kick ass track and facility, had the nitro TC worlds here two years ago.

Hi guys, just trying to get more people on facebook interested in F1.

http://www.facebook.com/f1rccars

Hope you "like" it and promote your races and event schedules. And of course, to share your beautiful photos.

Thanks.

Hi, What's the best method for mounting foam tires to wheels. Just got a F103 kit today and I'm skeptical of using the supplied double sided tape.

The tape works well, clean the wheel and stick the tape even with the outside edges then follow the Tamiya instructions (stick the tabs out so you can pull the backing off the tape after the tire is on the wheel etc., also wet the exposed sticky areas to allow the tire to slide on). After the tire is taped to the wheel, CA glue the edges of the tire/wheel.
The alternative is to use 3M weatherstripping glue (Gorilla snot), apply it to both tire and wheel surfaces, let it dry completely for several hours then wet the surfaces with lacquer thinner then slide the tire onto the wheel and of course clean up the mess after.
CA gluing foams onto the wheels isn't really a hot ticket.
