I'm jealous.

Pics when you get it up and built. I'm interested to see the anodizing - to see if it's similar to my X1.

I will snap some pictures tomorrow and post them during my build. I am to tired to work on it tonight and would rather do it all in one swift shot.

Looking good edhchoe. The Pirelli supersoft markings match the F2012 livery. The Tifosi would be proud.

Thx. I like how the tip of the nose sits behind the front edge of the spoiler. The spoiler/bumper will protect it in collisions. Also the nose is squarish and the tip is flat so hopefully it will stay pretty longer.

Its not, it is more of a gunmetal grey than a gold titanium color

Roughly, a little lighter and not as warm. What kind of wheel nuts are those?
Those are cool

Thanks. I guess I'll hold off on getting the V2 Ti (will now wait for the TRF101)

The wheel nuts are made by Qteq, purchased them through Reflex Racing in TX. They are pretty cool. The fronts even have a groove on it to allow the bearing to properly seat / fit and acts a hubcentric ring. It does require a different nut driver - but that tool in and of itself is pretty cool. Comes in 4 colors, including a really close match to Tamiya blue. ReflexRacing

How do you affix the air intake? I have been using tamiya provided clear double sided tape. But it came off during the last race after performing several acrobatic traction rolls. Superglue? Shoe goo? Screw and nut? All of the above?
