Thanks man! Fun with stickers You need to add a flavor to the adhesive...I got a couple stuck on my tongue...don't ask how...and they didn't taste to good. How about bubble gum flavored.

I'm even working on my radio now...you know, adding a personal touch.

All you need now is the Exotek nose brace.

Vyger, NICE JOB Sir !! While it's still being finished and you're able to take photos, could you post some good pics of the various wiring ?? I finally got my F1R rolling last night and I must say that wiring a F1 chassis is taxing. I'd like to see more people post some good photos of the wiring jobs so us newbies can get some ideas.
Thanks !!!

Thanks. Im currently painting it black but this is the finished result still transparent. It wont look pretty painted as it is raining and the paint isnt wanting to stick on much

The angles are very close, camera and pod being skewed make them look very off.



I did run it and the car has a ton of entry understeer now, and when doing high speed slalom it no longer drifts after the 4th turn. but i cant compare it much to how the car used to run as it has rubbers in the front and foams in the back for now. The flow viz i make was a bit odd as it had many stagnant areas and lots of spillage of the main floor, but the diffuser area was working fine. Next run will be runing it without the rear wing upper component to see how that affects the car now.

What's a good speed control to run in an F1 car that uses a 2S LiPo and silver j-johnson motor??

Here is his blog, there are info about his F104. Plus tons of stuff that my brain cannot comprehend.

btw we were talking about the Tamiya F104v2. He said it would be good on carpet but still t-bar for asphalt.

Thanks RBF ! I did see those previous photos. I was hoping for good close ups. For instance....is that the receiver mounted ahead of the battery ?? Just where is the servo wire ?
Also, this wasn't just for Vyger. I'd love to see the same kind of pics for as many folks that want to post them. Man...I thought the old F201 was a pain to wire !

Anything small, especially if it has a current limiter. LRP Quantums, Tekin FX etc.

Now THAT makes a difference. I had no idea that was really the receiver. I could see the plugs but couldn't tell the receiver had some sort of CF pattern wrap on it. That is indeed some pretty tidy wiring.
Clearly this kind of pic could be of tremendous value to newbies. This F1 newb thanks you.
Anybody out there have a F1R with the Exotek laydown servo mount. I'd love to see some hi res pics of the wiring if you got em'.
I'll take some pics of my chassis tomorrow and post them. Thanks again RBF.
