any info to get foams on my car will be greatly appricated. i did have a blast running this the other day though.
I believe standard TC Foams will fit, just need to true them down.

Ok, looking for rubber tyres for my F109. I've found three brands, Pit Shimzu, Ride and TRG.

Which brand would people recommend? Looking for good grip + durability. Also, is there any difference between the F103 and F104 wheels, size etc?

If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

I run the Ride brand tyres on my F103. They give good grip on the surface that I run on and don't appear to be wearing that much.

I also run Pit Shimizu slicks on my F104. I love these tyres. They (Pit Shimizu) have also just released a set of slicks for the F103 size wheels. Grip with these tyres is amazing. However, I don't think they'll last as long as the Ride tyres.

Yes, there is quite a size difference between the F103 and F104 tyres and wheels. The fronts moreso than the backs.

I also work on a Sauber (Model F1.07). I hope it will look as nice as yours also I doubt it since it is my first multi-colored body.
By the way, which body did you use for your model?

Yeah its a simple paint scheme, but not easy to mask off.
Take your time and make sure your tape is down really well
This one was done on a Chevron F108 body

Maybe you'll have more luck/exposure by starting a new thread.

Default F1 Motors

At our track, RC Madness, we started out running 540 motors but as the class has grown the question of brushless motors has come up. Obviously a 17.5 is going to be faster, does anyone have any experience running 21.5s against 540s?

It going to depend on what you allow for the speed controls. Wide open, 21.5 will be pretty fast. There were some guys running 2s 21.5 WGT cars at our track for a while, and they were around the same speed as the 1s 13.5 cars at that time.

After reading hours and hours "how to" on this forum, I finished my first RC paint job for a F103 RM.
I started with an easy one, just to get my feet wet.

Links instead of images since I am not yet trustworthy. Do see the pictures, remove the space between "h" and "ttp"

I still have not found a Sauber C12 rear wing, so I used a Lotus instead.

Next up will be a BMW Sauber F1.07 using the F104 body but the masking is not as easy as it seems.

Nice lookin car, sometimes the best lookin cars are the one color jobs with a nice decal job.
Yes the Sauber F107 is tricky, I have yet to do one on a 104 Body
