I have a weird question. I'm looking at the Renault stickers offered by F1Paintlabs (http://f1paintlab.mybigcommerce.com/10-1/) and think they would look sweet on a yellow or camel yellow body. However, as far as I know, there aren't Renault bodies around. So... do most of you just buy, say, a Ferrari body and paint it whatever team/color you want?

Yep, that's the ticket

Ok, another noob question. Looking at the TQRC site for F1 bodies, I see sets like the Ferrari 2012, F60 and Macleran, I get those full body sets. But, some others are just bodies and some are just bodies with a wing. If it says that a rear wing or plate or mount aren't included, how do I know what to get to get those missing pieces? Some I can relate by name/model, but I'm having trouble understanding if all plastic and hardware will be included. Basically I'm trying to get a body and wings but no decals so I can use the F1paintlabs decals. Can someone clarify the non-bodyset options I have?

Sorry, I promise I'm not dumb, just confused :-)

The bodies that include wings also include decals, you want the F60 or McLaren tamiya body they are the best options.

No, I know, but I have my eye on the F1Painlabs black Renault decals, and I want to put them on a yellow body. So, I basically wouldn't use the F60 or McLaren decals. I was hoping not to have to waste those. That's all

The McLaren at TQRC

Body only

Front Wing

Rear Wing

The costs of the 3 above is more than the complete bodyset and you'll have to find the head. It's better to just get the whole thing and sell the stickers.

Hm, yeah, that's the conclusion I was coming to myself. I appreciate you giving me the links, though!

Does this Adjustable front arm make the car that much faster?
What would be the benefit to use this besides easier adjustments? Does it provide more speed in turns?

If you know how you want to adjust camber and caster for improved handling it will surely help dial in to different surfaces.
Get it right and that car will be happier than ever.

Well the theory is that you gain more negative camber when the wheels are turned because the axis of rotation is tilted more.
Imagine vertical kingpin(no caster) vs horizontal kingpin (90 caster).

You are better off buying the bodyset, because it includes all the hardware to assemble the wings as well
We have McLarens and F2012's in stock, with F60s due to arrive soon
