What size screws are meant to be used for the Tamiya rear wings?

Agreed, it's more balanced with it and is more noticeable on a link car. The Tamiya diff is quite heavy.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

2 x 6 cs, self tapping

T.O.P. has some nifty titanium ones #TI-CT0206 that I use. I run them as it lowers the cg of my car and gives me an advantage over the other cars at my track

Default Williams F1

Finally finished my F1 for this weekends racing. It's the FW34 on a F2012 body. And I know the helmet is wrong... Maybe the helmets from the Young driver test....

Looks great! Look forward to seeing it in the flesh on the weekend. Mine's similar, but nowhere near as sharp

What did you use for black on the front wing?

Phil.

Thanks, although there are a few 'imperfections' up close....

For the front wing I actually brought an extra black wing set. So i used the black front wing instead of the kit white one and just painted the back section white.

Any one ever run the rear wider then the front on their F1. I want to try the counter weight but the clamp on my axle is the long one. I have the rsector widening kit which uses the short clamp. I put the wide kit on the rear to try out the counter weight as it makes the rear pod completely balanced now. But my rear width is 190 and my front is 180. Are there any rules against this setup and what would the handling be like. Won't be able to try it until Thursday.

That looks awesome, love the color scheme! I was going to ask about the black wing too, but someone already asked and got the answer

I made a video of my recently completed Tamiya F104v2 Pro with the Ferrari body. This thing is awesome and can't wait to get it on a track!

Default F104 front end on an F109.

Would someone be able to give me the list of parts I need to convert the front end of the 3Racing F109 to an F104 front please? I've been wading through threads all day and everything is a touch vague (maybe because I've been up for 25 hours)...

Thanks

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