BP - beautiful McLaren, as always!

border - really nice ING! Chevron bodies are so nice to model with.

Well here's my ING. Pictures aren't nearly as nice as BP's but they'll do.... except for the last one. Not sure who took that one, but it really looks like it's sitting on the grid.

Mike,
Thanks for the props, I cant take credit for the photos, that was the work of John Discher, one of my racing buddies here in Detroit. Your ING Renault is awsome, and totally worthy of being the Nats champion that it is.
Was wondering what wheels you have on there? They are very cool!
Remember, Im gunnin for ya for the title next year.

BP - the wheels I used are actually just the F103 premounts. I put them on a tire truer to groove them and then painted in the white line.

Oh, and I have a few new tricks up my sleeve, I'm so looking forward to the next TCS Nats. Besides that, I'll finally get to meet all you concours heavy-hitters!

What you may or may not realize is that by winning concourse at the nats, you are also a heavy hitter, welcome to the party pal

Just wanted to post some pics of my Sauber F103. I took concourse at the Mephis TCS with it this year. Not up to BP and Vyger's standards, but not bad for a hack like myself.

Hey once again, if you win concourse even at a regional level, I wouldnt consider yourself a hack, that is a nice lookin Sauber, there is something to be said for keeping things simple

Thanks. I have a F104 on the way, and I'm trying to decide what to do with the body. I have a set of Jaguar decals laying around that I might do, or I'm going to wait for the Ferrari body and do it on that. I like having a race body that I don't mind trashing.

Thumbs up Nice!!!

Let me just add in my two cents.... That 103 is sooo dope it gives me a chub, that's just me. I've been keeping some what tabs on it since I was first turned on to this thread. I'm throwing up right now it's so sick. Good work!

Default Decals?

I'd love to get my hands on some of those cool decals but I haven't a clue where to oder from. I like doing custom paint, but to have the realistic decals along with paint, forget it.

is that paint or vinyl on the wings? or part of the decal set? (the new F60 has decals that color the wings red)

D-Drive?

"Testing with many hours in the wind tunnel and simulation suggests that an offset side pod creates optimal down force for this circuit and should help our team achieve maximum results."

Seriously....I must have been not paying attention or buzzed when I mounted the side pods. I taped them on first and started drilling holes for the screws and they must have shifted while doing so. I swear they were straight when I started

Akura, the wings are done from scratch with vinyl.
