I am doing one with f2012 body and if I bought new wheels and tires for it also the parts/materials would cost about $160.

That yellow Lotus looks amazing. Even the photo position looks great.

You guys go it made. Every time I paint a body people come up and say things like "wow!" was anyone else hurt in that crash? Or, gee should we donate that car to the poor. I wish I had talent. All of my cars are the same color...blue.

Just need to get a proper helmet painted and see how durable the front wing is gonna be before i put the wing decals on!
Working on a F60 style twin right now, I ma not sold on the performance of the 2012 bodyset, it handles different for sure. Tomorrow is our UF1 pre race so I will be able to do lap comparisons between the two.

Your too mean to deal with nurses. Most of them are armed these days anyway.

My cars are the Tamiya powder blue. I picked that color back in the '80's because nobody wanted to be seen with it. One pass with the spray can and I'm race ready.
