The CRC rear widening hubs will work. The front end is done by Full Option.

We were still using the sauber mercededes overhere as MIX bodies made reproductions a few years ago. But it is good he's back and i heard he has some new idea's as well.

Good body with good amount of steering on speed. With a gurney and front wing attached you really can dial in a very high amount of overall downforce if you desire to do so. With the front wing atached it looks real good as well.

My mercedes from last year.






My Mercedes for this year. Still have to put the front wing on. Season wil start in april.

I believe that Alexander took a 1/8th scale wing and made it fit to the body. That's RC modelling hey, see things and make them fit. There is not always an "out-of-the-box" solution for things.

That is what keeps this hobby interesting I believe...

Yes, kind of like the F1 Decal set that I made from scratch. Sourcing all the logo images online, tracing them in Adobe Illustrator to create vector artwork and then testing them on different thicknesses of vinyl until I found one thin enough and rich enough to simulate paint. Also recreating the wing decals for the side damns of the front and rear wings. I "believe" there was quite a bit of "seeing things and making things fit..."




I'm excited to run a variation of what you guys are running with a group of us here in the US and I don't mean to sound ungrateful for the help or tips. Just thought I would ask.

The gurney at the back is indeed a 1/8 scale gurney made to fit. Even though i made it adjustable in height I believe the best balance of downforce vs drag is to have it as low as on the blue car.

Making decals can take a long time indeed. It is actually very gratifying once you found just the right one. I have done a Rothmans Porsche paint scheme some time ago (Serpent 235mm Porsche 962 shell) and it took me a long time to finish it. Looking up livery, printing, getting them down to size etc etc but it was fun to do it.

The decals on the blue car were done by a fellow driver on some kind of vinyl. The letters are plotted one by one so had to put them on the shell one by one as well. Tedious job but it is worth it once it is done and you have a good looking shell on the circuit.

My problem is always that the nice shells get thrashed fast! Paint an ugly shell and it seems to last longer .

Try IRS and for the shock, use the TC5 shock.
Works like a charm.
Also E-bay is your best friend for the older asso cars.
Perhaps Asso it self has the parts??

regards Roy

They do look like them but are not sure.
I believe Alex can help you with that one.

if using the tc5 shock or any touring shock, what spring to start with? the tc springs are a different size and weight compared to the buggy silver, green, and black springs.
