I would like to run the a Mclaren mp4 body on new serpent f110. From the photos is looks like it is based on an f104 chassis and has f104 body fitted.

Thanks

Sure you can as long as you have the front wing who's fit with the body. You should also cut the body differently for the front but it's not a problem

Main concern that it would fit the dimension of the chassis correctly. I understand it will need to be trimmed differently around suspension. I was not sure if it would fit around the front suspension and motor

I plan to purchase a body and wing combo.

The rear is larger on f103 body so you have plenty of room for your electronic and motor.
the only issue could be the height of the front upper arm if you put a very low nose body. i have already trimed a fw14 body on a f104 but the nose is a little bumpy.

what version of MP4 will you purchase ?

Hi Guys - Just ordered my Mclaren MP4-24 Body shell. Could someone direct me to which paint to use? I will preferably be putting it through an Airbrush.
Also - It has been a long time since I have sprayed a bodyshell - I dont know which bits need to be what colour - Is there a stage by stage for the mclaren bodyshell, or a tutorial any where?

Many thanks!

Alex

Yesterday I finished the chassis for my BT-45b ( http://www.rctech.net/forum/12400548-post9496.html ). Today I did some fine adjustment, added the electronics, trimmed the body and setup the initial chassis settings. Tomorrow it's getting serious; the car will have its first laps on my outdoor track in Dasing. I then will use the day for testing and setup.

The body is still uncolored. Colors are ordered for next week. What really sucks are the rims If someone has a good idea (must be foams) I will be thankful!

Now some pictures:

Sorry - Im full of questions today!

Is there any real difference between the Savox SC-1251 servo, and the 1252?

Is the 1251 still more than good enough?

Cheers!

I run the 1251 on all my F1 - 2WD cars (F1R, TRF101, F1 Ultra, F104WGP) and have no issues with them. The 1252 looks to have a bit more torque - which is most likely not much of a factor in an F1 car. The only thing I would pay attention to is the BEC voltage your ESC puts out to allow for the 6.0V the servo needs.

Either should be fine. Compared to the 1251 the 1252 is slightly faster at the expense of torque. Have seen some issues with Savox power consumption, though, you ESC needs 6V, and quite some power to feed it. I've had to use an extra cap in my receiver to prevent the 1251 from sucking so much power the receiver rebooted.

The only thing I can think of is that Yeah Racing make dish style rims in both mini and tourer sizes... they are for rubber but all you would need to do is grind the lips off of them and fit foam to them... might be a bit more trouble but at least the rims would match... I think you'd be able to use 1/12 donuts on the mini rims

You might contact Gordon at GQtires@comcast.net for foam tires. They are mounted on Black rims. Try the hard fronts and super soft rears. Send me your e-mail address and I'll send you a pictre of the rims.
