That was 2003. In 2002 I prepared the car of my good friend David Joos and he beat Ronald hands down @ the Euro's before becoming WC. It was a very big fast 1/8 track and nobody beats me in the preparation game!

I am not getting the point of this part?? Once I mount my body and put the front body clip on my wing won't move due to the body holding it....

Also , do you race? I run F1 in Roseville at Speedworld

I have yet to see a Tamiya Wing fall off ?

Seems useful for the FGX though

They dont fall off just bounce around a lot. Mainly the F60 wing. Some people need them depending how smooth your surface is. I just used lexan for my brace.

Ahh, I see

Been running the F60 quite a lot, but haven't come across that issue yet.

Redbull,

I just got my F1 and in the process of building it. I have an F1R. For me I guess I liked the idea of the nose brace because it gave stability to the nose. To me anyway I have no evidence of that its just my thought. I have been to Speedworld to practice my driving sucks. Never gotten to race there yet but I do intend to.

You guys have some sweet tracks up there
NorCal, Speedworld, Ripon
That would make for a good start to an F1 series....

I'm pretty sure Lightfoot would drive up there just to race in the rain

I have all three track owners working on it! It will be so sweet as the three tracks are so different

We are finally setling out running rubber and narrow cars and 21.5. Our only real difference from UF1 rules is most guys at one of the tracks are running the fixed timing citrix 21.5, as it is fast enough and cheap

That's because you never hit anything.
