Just about to start on a new body, using the F60 as a base.

Quick question on the "sharkfin": is that intended to be held together with double-sided tape and then taped to the main body? Is that the most durable approach?

Do you mean CA glue? Does that affect the lexan paint at all?

I use shoe goo to assemble all the pieces, although I used it on my Ferrari that I disguised as a McLaren and the sharkfins have come unglued because the chrome paint doesn't bite into the lexan at all

Hello,

thats the carson 16 turn set with black motor (used for tamiyacup) and a stick lipo

tires are foam 3racing front and tamiya soft rear (no grip in this vid ...)

by far the best foam tires combo in my experience is (and also the cheapest?):
3racing front medium
xceed asphalt soft rear

(rc-mushroom have both)

What would a new f104 pro body go for with wing set? Or f103 body with wing set? Both are in perfect shape and painted. I'm looking for the vodaphone body and wing set or the f60 set possibly in trade.

Its going to be hard to find someone that wants a Pro body, especially one that has been painted. I would post pics and see if there are any takers
