WTCC that turned out quite nice! It's hard to believe that body covers up that touring car! Can't wait to see it with the bigger rear wheels.

Thanks
Unfortunately the postman didn't bring the tires today...

@TeamLotus: 1977 is absolutely correct!

Default Ferrari F60 vs. Mclaren MP4-24 vs. Ferrari F2012 Bodies

Has anyone compared the Ferrari F60, Mclaren MP4-24, and Ferrari F2012 bodies? Apparently the MP4-24 is a bit more aggressive than the F60. How does the F2012 compare?

I have run both McLaren and the F60 and I honestly can't tell a difference. To me the wings are vestigal at best, so I would imagine weight of the body parts would be more important than the aero. You need to make everything a lot bigger (think tc wing) to start getting aero effect.

Rob is correct with wings for F1 cars, I noticed alot more downforce running the f113 rear wing on my F1R then the Tamiya wings but you have to find a suitable front wing to counter act it or else the front end will wash out and the back end stays planted

I have not compared a F60 body to a McLaren but I have gone back to back between the F104 pro body and F60. Between those two the F60 provided much more rear grip. With the F104 pro body I had a car that was on the verge of spinning out in faster corners, then mounted the F60 and the car had a slight push suddenly.

did you have the same wings for both bodies or did you keep the wings of each body ?

The comparison was with complete body sets. so the proper wings where used with each body. It was at a TCS race so I had to keep the wings with the bodies

Man, I cannot believe I did not destroy my Tamiya F104v2 this week at the races. Had some epic crashes and the thing keeps on truckin'! Wait for the massive t-bone collision at about 2:45 in

+ YouTube Video

That I can believe. The F60 wing is way up in the air. The Pro wing is much much lower. Lowering a tiny wing can't help, that's for sure....

Has anyone tried running the car without front and rear wings? How much difference does it actually make?
I would imagine the rear wing makes some impact.

Talking about that, I may try and make a functioning DRS system for my "Display" shell. Could be interesting.
Anybody done this before?

I lost my rear wing in an accident during a race, we run 35 minute final and the car got undrivable.. it lost all rear grip. I did a quick pit stop to mount the wing again and the car was again OK. I did loose lot of valueble race time
