I love this video I watch once a month if not more! Wish I could loop it as a screen saver.

The VF1 race is actually the following weekend at Tamiya for the Speed-tech Grand Club race... This weekend is the UF1 race at Tamiya
by the way, that's the best vintage helmet I've seen so far...

Nice madjack!
I couldn't wait for decals and paint to get here! I had a friend who was painting his body so I had him do this one as well.









I still need a helmet and I am ordering a new Body as well. I don't think they have a VF1 class here but I am going to test with it, on open practice days.

That is a decal I got from a buddy years ago. no marking or anything and it is thin. I will see if he will give me the info on it ok.

He did most all of my decals back in the day.

That looks fantastic Marty! Of course all your cars always look great!!
What front suspension arms are you using? They look very period correct!! Are they the F103 arms with chrome monokote?

Stock F103 and yes it is a decal Al up in Canada gave me, Monokote should work just as good.

Just use a heat gun when your wrapping the arms.

Marty,

How did you get the vta wheels to fit what appears to be standard 103 front axles? I was under the impression I would need to use fgx front axles to fit it all together.
