You're working it out I see. The setup is completely opposite with the two brands you mention. Shimizu grooved , you remove steering . Ride on the other hand, you do everything you can , to maximize steering.
First, I need to know your basic setup . I can advise you what works best for me from there.
A 0.2 consistency is what gets me the laps running a 540. More motor surely makes me faster outright , but less consistent ( more wheel time required) over six minutes . More likely to bin it , than win it.....

The Red Devil 104X1 is done and available for sale. The price for the rolling chassis is $575, and includes the buyers choice of wheels and tires.
After the studio shots are done I will have it listed on the store at
f1paintlab.mybigcommerce.com

That's becouse you've never had the Chevron ones. I've seen them both and the ones you mention have a shiny vinyl and sometimes the white base color is not properly centered. The Chevron ones are hard to get tough and if U live in the US then it'll be less of a hassle to get the other ones.

Hey BP,

I have a suggestion for you. Don't know if the money would be there or not. But I was thinking it would be cool to be able to buy the stickers for just the front and rear wings separate. After doing an F1 body and spending the time and money making it nice, you take it out and race it and inevitably you break a front or rear wing. Only to mess up the whole paint scheme. Heck I'd just build a spare front and rear wing when I did a body just so I had an extra in the pit box.

Just a thought.

Also anyone tried the new Tamiya (TCS legal) tires? Better than the Pits? Same thing?

uuuummm...excuse me sir, no double posts are permitted here. You'll need to turn in your membership card at the window. JK

@ BP - I like Odin544's idea of the replacement wing stickers being available separately. Maybe even include a sheet of livery matching vinyl.

Also...me likes the new chassis. SCHWEEEET

@ Bigwig - Check out the tire stickers from from F1 Paintlab, those are also flat, non shiny.

as far as I've read, they are identical - just with the "TCS' added to the sidewalls...

I think I read - either in the TCS thread or the F104 thread - that the packaging even says something being pits...it wouldn't be the first time Tamiya licesnsed another manufacturer to make something they didn't have or didn't perform up to par (Spec-R gear diff for the 416x)

Since Heikki Kovalainen gets no love, I gave his 2009 ride the Gold treatment. Enter my latest hack job...it's not F1 Paint Lab quality, but it will be very hard to tell when the car is moving. Pic whoring time!

^^ I like it. One thing you can try is instead of the screws, use shoe goo to hold the body together. Works great and you don't have the out of place screws.
