Default Is F1 useless?

Here's something to justify the obsession

What is F1's contribution to the world?

PM me, I have a ton of Wizard parts. NOS plastic, gears, all kinds of stuff
I have a few gearsets as well, but I think they are the option gears

those photos are just plain sick! I had to look twice to see that they were indeed model cars and not real ones. no wonder this F1 stuff is making such a strong comeback. Awesome pics. Absolutely awesome.

Looks like an aftermarket front end.
My 104 is setup with 1 degree of camber, and it is coning the tires, but I expect that

Yeah for more steering, but I may go to zero because the car is rotating around the front wheels. I ran on carpet this past weekend and when the bite came up it was causing traction roll. that was with running the kit foams all the way around. I think the rear pod on this car is very sensitive in how its set up

Default F1 decals

Well, I took the plunge and ordered these from Hong Kong:

http://cgi.ebay.com/f103-decals-for-...QQcmdZViewItem

Its a good looking basic set, seems same as what comes in a kit. Can do Mclaren, Ferrari (with Marlboro and bar codes), Jaguar and Red bull. Plus, 2 smaller sheets for 1 set each of Bridgestone and Potenza tire decals.

Wonder if he has others like this...fwiw
