How much difference is there in appearance between the McLaren and Ferrari body sets?
McLaren seems to have more substantial side pods / pieces but is that the only difference?
Is one better suited to a Red Bull paint scheme / look than the other?
Biggest differences are the front and rear wings. Macca sculpted winglets (Sauber, Macca and Force India) Ferrari little flipper (more Ferrari and Red Bull but not as elaborate) McLaren has a undercut rear wing (Renault) Ferrari has straight down (everyone else). Confused, look at the front and rear wings of bodysets and photos of actual cars.
I just finished building my F104 and am now installing the electronics. I purchased a tekin B1r after hearing about its small size but I had some questions on where and how many capacitors I should be putting on. I have glitch buster capacitor for my receiver and a 16v 180 micro farad capacitor for the esc. Sorry Im new to this whole thing but do I attach the capacitor to the battery leads or the engine leads? Do I need to instal any small ones on my engine the 540 Johnson motor? I will also be running 2s lipos if that makes any difference.
I am a very experienced racer but new to F1.
I have just purchased a F104Pro Black (yet to arrive) and I would like to know a couple of things.
I would like to know what are the best performing body and wing sets available?
I am not interested in looks or realism, I am only really interested in performance on the track.
Where are the best places to get parts for the F1 cars?
Where do we get Foam tires and rims for the F1 Cars?
I am thinking of putting the Exotec conversion on the car straight away because I have some high level 12th scale experience and the rear end would be familiar. What are peoples experiences with this conversion?

Hey, new to posting here and rather new to the RC world but a huge fan of F1 and in lieu of not having the money, or the skills, or connections or anything remotely close to a racing life I decided to do the best next thing. Enter the RC world.
Anyway, my love for the sport started the first time I saw the Lotus John Player Special driven by Ayrton Senna in the Mexico GP in 1986. So I decided to build my F104 Pro with what I think the livery would be like if cigarettes would still be allowed to sponsor the cars. I ordered the decals on ebay and one of the sets came all the way from Italy!
I hope you like them.
PS: I'll upload the my version of a F1 livery with the Tamiya F104 body set along with my two other cars in the following post since this only allows 5 pictures a post.
