I am going to build the Tyrrell 6 wheeler F1 car for shelf queen this weekend. Has anyone actually raced the 6 wheeler F1 car in the past in the '80s? It looks cool but don't think it would handle well.

Actually, it handles quite well from my experience.

How are you guys routing the wire for the low profile servos? I got a futaba s9551 and the wire is coming out towards the front of the car, making it pretty difficult to route.

Here is a link for small little clips for routing servo wires. Which stick nicely to the side of the servo mounts.

Way cool. Good looking collection of F1models and a couple of F103GTs and maybe even an LM in there. I have some catching up to do...

Well I ordered a Kyosho f1! Should be fun seeing as it will be my first f1 and every other Kyosho product I've used has been fantastic!
