I'm trying on the Ride wheels and the fronts hit the spring and king pin.
and if you shim the king pin to get the wheels to fit it raises the ride high way too high.. anyone have a fix for this?

First class sir.

You have plans on making the Force India or any pre 2011 decals schemes?

when you are prepping a new body... do you cut first then paint?
or paint first then cut.
i typically paint then cut on most of my rc's but this
seems like the front ends of these cars have a lot of notches to take out..

I used to paint and then trim, but I'm finding that the masking is easier after the body has been trimmed

So Brad, How did the racing go today? I'm gonna stop by tomorrow for the stickers.

That Renault is about the best looking RC car I've ever seen. Awesome!
