i have a question about servo mounting. i currently run my servo with the saver pointed down. this is on a tamiya f104. it works fine but i would like to know what you guys think about having the saver on the top of the servo and what the benifits are of both. i have the exotek servo mount and i am contemplating changing the mounting to the saver on top. i had a failure of the saver at the last race so i wanted to try the other mounting position. thanks, doug.

Here is my latest VF1 project car...Jackie Stewart's 1971-72 Tyrrell 003 Ford.

The engine wiring, rear suspension, mirror mounts, and engine plumbing lines are all hand-made.

Body came from Manny at VF1 Club.

Hope you all like it.

I think the website for VF1 is down right now, but Brad at F1 Paintlab sells the VF1 stuff.

Thanks for painting the Tyrrell, I'm really happy with the way it turned out and appreciate all the extra detail you added.

Click here and here for some pics of other Vf1 bodies available. I have some tweaks to make on the Tyrrell mold before it's ready for production.

I use the 16ga TQ wire on my F1 car (2s 21.5), 12th scale (1s 17.5) and my 417 sedan (2s 13.5 motor). No problems.

It's a slightly modernised take on the Renault Mild Seven livery. I'm pretty happy with how it came out :-).
Nice job ! That is a cool decal set to work with. This was the body set I did up using the same decals for the So Cal UF1 Winter Series team event. Same car was Best of Show, TQ and race winner at the TCS race two weeks ago at the Tamiya USA track in Aliso Viejo.

Your welcome for saving your concourse bacon by fixing your over discharged lipo using my "special charging technique". And thank you again for use of your charger for the weekend. Last time I ever go to the track without a spare.

I got my 101 built, sort of. I think I fixed all the stuff I could find that was wrong with it. Needs a test session.

What are you supposed to do for ride height on these things anyway?

Low profile servo ,horizontal mount with an xray stiff servo saver...dialed.
The main advantage is being able to quickly add or remove shims to the inner link to adjust bump. Depending on who's saver you use..you can alter ackerman as well.Slight benefit of lowering cg when running a low profile servo.

I'm hearing it should be very soon, there's a couple of things that have held it up
