I would do custom stuff, but it doesn't come cheap. It's the amount of time that it takes to collect all the logos, then scale and arrange them.
Paul Tracy Penske please.....

If you decide to just buy the Tamiya wings separate, they do not come with the screws to put them together. Those only come with the complete body set. And finally, F1 Paint Lab decal sheets are great for the liveries but do not have the base body items like the air intake sticker, side pod intake stickers, exhaust or the steering wheel. That $ 40.00 body set is going to cost over $ 100.00 before you even lay the first coat of paint.

Thanks for the comments but all many bodies share 1 F104, or F103. I am a painter not racer.

Favourate racetrack memory of the 80's growing up, being in the race tent with Rick Mears, Roger Penske, Paul Tracy and Emerson Fittipaldi at Gold coast indy (93 or 94, probably 93 as Rick Mears had just retired)

Beth.
I was walking the infield in Indy in 93' when Mear's car went by on the tow truck, after crashing for the first time ever at the speedway. It was pretty odd seeing his car on the hook.

I got PT's autograph when Penske first signed him to test. He was walking around the Speedway with some friends during NASCAR's first pre-brickyard tire test. I think he was more surprised someone recognized him than I was to see him.

WRC F1 is receiving a "performance massage" in those days. Model is improving a lot.

I've been into R/C for a minute nitro, electric onroad and off-road and understand a great deal about the sport and technicalities, Im trying to get into every aspect of the sport including 1/10 scale F-1 racing. My question is
1: What Turn motor is used in this class brushed and brushless?
2: Is the ESC set to locked spec mode?
3: Obviously the class is large enough for some people to have a whole fleet of cars and race everyone of them at least twice a year, Is it big enough in idaho to own one and race regularly?
4: Last but not least not many companies make these besides tamiya, 3racing, and hpi that i know of is there any other companies to choose from besides tyco lol?
