Is this part an upgrade over what comes with a normal TRF shock, like what comes with the F104 Pro?

New digs. Lotus 99T in Benetton B188 livery. Thanks BP for the quick shipping and the great decals. I really like the material you use.

Finally! Somebody found the model attractive enough to put some time on.
This one was what I was planning to do. still wating for paint and the other parts coming in for my f104w gp.
looks great BTW, texastc. one thought. I would add yellow ring on the inner part of the wheel. that will pop your baby out!
I'll try to post my build once i'm done so you can enjoy company.

It looks really good with these tires and wheels. The Lotus 99t could look like so many cars with just a different paint job.
Again great work

HAA! Everyone's been busy.

I got my crap wired today. My first time wiring a brushless in an F1. Please be gentle with the remarks.

Vyger,

I am curious about your set up in the usually when your using a short lipo pack its to get rear bias or at least thats what I have read but your going the opposite direction and pushing it forward. Is that to get more steering?

You are insulting me by being humble with such a good job on wiring. I feel embarrassed comparing mine to yours.

Yes, Iím going for a bit more steering. Iím basing this off a friends set up for his X1 and now his vir2. He likes the additional steering this set up generates. Weíll see if I like it. I can always change it to something else.
