I believe he used a combination of sticker sheets for that car. There isn't one sheet that has all of the same stickers that I'm aware of...not that I know everything. The main sheet he used is Mitsubishi Lancer Rally truck.

Here's a link to the body set. If you contact Tamiya one of their C/S reps can probably give you the part number for the individual sticker sheet. The rest is masking and spraying. I hope this helps.

One body is on a Speed Passion SP-1 and the other a VBC Flash04. I can't believe how good these look in person

Question regarding the Serpent F110.

In the "Basic Asphalt-Rubber Setup" on the Serpent Homepage, how many holes for the shock piston are used? 1 or 3?

Thanks in advance!

Can someone tell me where I can find 1/10 pre-painted F1 driver helmet (from 2013 and 2014) for my bodies?

Thanks in advance,
G-rem

G-rem,

F1paintlab has some decal sheets that include decals for the helmet. I believe that one of the Lotus sheets has Kimi's helmet decals in it.

Yes, you're right; I already have the Lotus E21 (2013) decals and the decals for the helmet are included.

But I don't have them for the F14T (still Kimi), the Force India (Nico Hulkenbeg) and the Mercedes (Nico), that's why I search some painted helmet to complete my bodies (I am not very good at painting so small bits...)

BPShadow,
Since helmet liveries are much more static that the year-to-year liveries of the cars, I wonder if there is a market for helmet decals as a separate sheet?

Hello lads, the F104 party is prolly over but as there's a local track in my town that's hosting regular F1 tournaments, i've decided to buy a legitimate MP4-24 kit as a kick-start to my RC career. What i am sure of right now is to put Paintlab's R30 decals on the MP4-24 body and that's about it lol. I've got limited knowledge about the motors and such, hopefully this kit doesn't turn out to be a pain in the **** for me haha.

Got to see them this past weekend!

They are really sweet looking and light weight. No more screwing and taping pods and intake scoops!

It's a good bit of kit there. In terms of knowledge, well, that'll come from this forum (this thread even) and the locals. Most folks run silver can or modified (17.5t to 21t brushless). Take your time and before you know it. The kit will be done. What radio setup and ESC will you be running?

Here's another good resource Cick me

Thank goodness. It took me forever to finish my Tamiya F-60 body. And I didn't really like the way the side pods looked after I attached them, no matter how carefully I cut and fit them together. It will be good to have a body you can just drop on without having to assemble/structurally reinforce.
