I like it! Nice

F1 is growing in Madison. Skip the first 30 seconds if you don't like Rick Astley:

Default RG Wings

About to start building my F104 Pro, but I don't like the low, wide rear wing. Will the TRG wings (Standard and Advance) bolt straight on to the 104? They look to be taller and narrower, and hopefully will give me better performance too.

Are there any bodies available that are F1 cars from the sixties?

I have a set of F104 Ride S2 front and S1 rear tires that came with my F109. What types of surfaces are these tires good for?

Why does your car sound like that?

Boy do I wish they did!! Clark and Gurney and Hill and Brabham and Stewart. That was a great era in F1 racing.

Sadly, I don't know of anyone who makes that 60's body style; plus there are no suitable F1 chassis or wheel and tires for that era.

I'm sure you could pull it off with VTA tires

So I have a F103, and was thinking about doing the F1Ultra conversion from exotek, but I don't know if you can fit the f104 arms on and leave the lay down servo. Has anyone ever done this setup at all??? Cause I love the f103 but I wanna update the technology with the chassis

Looking for some help I bought the Aluminum spacer set for my F1R and I am trying to get it set to 5mm ride height in the front. Does anyone have the combination? Total F1 noob here.
