@jimjav,

I believe that you can get single shocks for your F1 car from Brad at f1rclab.com

Default Wheels

Do the Tuning Haus foam/rubber 104 wheels have the off set as the foam/rubber Tamiya 104 wheels?
Thanks and God Bless

Yes, same offset
I find sometimes the front rub and you have to grind the spokes alittle or add another spacer inside the wheel on the axle

Just finished a 1992 McLaren MP4/7 on Tamiya F104w GP Edition:















I am not a friend of owning shelf queens, but this time I think I cannot race her (even though I want it so badly) It breaks my heart...

Yupp... The head position is strange. The body has a neck thermoformed in the cockpit. To fix it I need to cut it off and glue the helmet to the body. I just didn't have the courage , yet

The head position looks normal in 90's F1 car.

Very Good painting job.

Perhaps you should not drill two holes on the body.

TRG still makes some nice 90s bodies. I ordered mine here: http://www.reflexracing.net/110-F1-Bodies_c_64.html

Edit: Ooops, just saw they are all out of stock. Even rcmart only has the '94 Williams in stock...maybe TRG stopped the production...

You can search the net for it. It is called TRG 92m.

For TRG bodies try Banzai Hobby
http://banzaihobby.com/radio-control...03-f104-bodies

Tamiya sell the MP4/6 body from their F104W based kit and the MP4/5 body from the other rerelease but you will need to go through the parts list as the body, wing end plates, wing mount etc are all sold as separate parts.
