I believe the body comes with double sided tape to attach all the accoutrements, but most racers will probably shoe goo the nose on. A little fiberglass tape along with the shoe goo wouldn't hurt either.

Wow, that car is as beautiful as they come! Kinda odd that they would show pics of their state of the art F1 car and have a ~20yr old style body on it. Doesn't bother me at all, just an observation.

So I have an FGX on the way, and the F1 spec for the races near me is 21.5 blinky. I'm looking at the Viper VTX10R/VST combo, is the ESC small enough to not have space issues or should I look somewhere else?

I believe that is the car Tyree Phillips has been running the last few weeks in the UF1 series

Nice car, works well with a bit of tuning

3cmx3cm x2cm will be small enough especially if you use a shorty. Even with a regular sized lipo it will fit I think.

Is there anything smaller on the market that's worthwhile?

I'm also considering selling my F104 pro with lipo conversion. I'll just buy everything needed for the exotek chassis. PM me if anyone is interested.

Default Question for BPShadow

BP,

I'm thinking of doing up a Marussia paint scheme using your decals that I'm getting from TQ. Any suggestion as to how to mask the body? Should I try liquid mask or attempt green painter's tape to mark off the sections? Your help appreciated!
