Gotch ya! Thank's!

I take it that you cut out the basic shape, and then bend each screen to the finished shape and then attach/glue them in place.

Hey guys, newbie here. I'm a f1 enthusiast and thought a fun model to play around with would be cool.

I'm looking to buy an FGX, I'm a little concerned on how long the car will be supported. I've noticed some hop up parts are already out of stock. Any idea on this?

Also, could anyone recommend the cheapest electronics set up that I'll be able to race with? Looking mostly for Brushless, long battery life. I think 21.5T brushless is the class? Not to sure on this stuff. Looking for a Motor, ESC, battery, and charger recommendation.
