After 3 years I had it and shut it down.
What I want to say is, please pay the $5 since we don't want to lose the best thing that happend in the F1 RC world.
Thanks BP Shadow
Very well said. At best a business in the hobby industry is almost a hobby itself. We F1 racers need to be very gratefull to Brad for what he has done in the past and hope that he continues to do so in the future! Just my 2 cents worth. Andy Wallace Carbondale, IL.

The car looks awesome, almost like a stealth version.

Sean Park at TQ Raceway (tqrcracing.com) pretty much single handedly put F1 parts and great racing right in our desperate laps by taking a huge risk and droppin a lot of up front cash on inventory.
Brad Palmer f1paintlab.com is THE paint and sticker guru as well as F1 parts supplier elite.
Constructive criticism is best done and probably most appreciated directly thru pm or email.

The F1 paintlab decals are the highest quality decals I've ever seen for any kit. I'm an offroad racer most of the time but build shelf queen onroad cars to cruise the neighborhood and his products are untouchable. I really wish he'd expand into other onroad cars such as prototypes or imports, it's hard to find decent livery for those cars.

Cuda, you are far too kind, but thank you. I hope you will still feel the same way if we bang wheels goin through the bus stop at Nats.
That said, I second what Cuda said, me aside TQ is a great shop, and Sean is my top dealer and a great guy to deal with. I've been doing F1 since 1989, and back then there was pretty much nothing to speak of, you had a choice 1 chassis and 2 bodies, and good luck on decals, you had to buy 5 sheets to get the decals for one body. Just saying that things have come a long way and this is probably the best time for F1 in the RC world.
