Have you guys seen the current commercial for the new Infiniti G37 where they are on a course and pull up next to the racing Red Bull F3 car and ask for directions? Funny and well done!

I looked and looked for a link to the commercial on the Internet/YouTube/Etc, but couldn't find one. This is as close as I could get:

+ YouTube Video

Went to an Infiniti dealership this past weekend and saw all the car sales guys drinking Red Bull. Then I said Vettel is leading the WDC and they all went blank. LOL.

I got the Tamiya Wolf WR1 completed and ready to race tomorrow night!

I found some interesting information on the Wolf WR1. It won its very first race in 1977 and just before it was retired, Bobby Rahal of Indy 500 fame was the driver. Jody Scheckter was elsewhere by then.

I've got the OEM motor and a Novak GTS speed controller inside along with a trusty Futaba FM radio. I'll look at improvements in the future if warranted.

Thanks. I'm happy with it. If I get another body I will paint the gold accents. Tamiya's decals are excellent quality but getting them to follow the contours on the nose and cockpit area was hard. I think wrinkles are inevitable.

He other thing I did was the face shield on the driver. That was easier that trying to paint/detail the face. And, I think it looks cool too. Just some lexan scrap material from a thinner body and i used some micro screws. It was easy to shape because it was transparent when I did it.

I recently noticed that Tamiya has a static model of last years Red Bull car on the way. I'm assuming that they had to get some kind of licensing agreement in place to recreate the car. Considering they already should have an agreement in place, I wonder if we will see that car body replicated on a future F104 body.

Tamiya doesn't make it, but there is a RB8 available in a clear lexan shell. Ebay has them.

i usually apply some heat on the decals especially around tricky round edges... helps the decal material wrap around and stick better. helps get rid of the creases and folds too...

F1 market isnt very big so i wont produce it but can custom make the conversion kit if someone really wants one. Testing is going well its getting better.
Let me know what primary chassis and hop ups kits that I would need for you to build it. I will buy it.
