Be awhile before I use them.

We have seven (7) now in Madison with LM-1 kits!
Excellent report! Have you guys had a chance to all run together yet? What's the racing like?

It was easy, the paint is a spray bomb job. I even used the molded in body lines to guide the tape.

I just assumed you would go that direction with it...I don't why I thought that...maybe it was your avatar. LOL

Have you ever thought about going with the Arrows/Orange scheme on your F1?



They have the stickers to make it happen.

I was thinking of going with something along the lines of Action Express Racing since that is the closest to an American flag livery that I can find in the prototype class

Touche' Mr. Vyger, completely overlooked the avatar.

Yep, remember the Arrows very well. Just went with Marussia to keep it more current. Maybe on the next one I do up.

THis is the livery Id like to see translated to the LM-A body for an LM1 once I save up for it (being a father as well as a hobbyist money has to go to my family first):





what Id like to do is use the red cockpit and the blue side panels with white as the background field color (which if memory serves correctly goes on last when painting RC bodies)

My current set up for those interested:

Front -
kit springs without the preload spacer
20K damper lube
1.5 neg camber
1.0 toe out
5mm ride height

Rear -
450wt oil
HPI silver spring
1.5mm droop
AE gold side springs
20K damper lube
5.5mm ride height

Tires -
full sauce rear, inside 1/2 front

Shorty pack full fwd
ESC behind pack

Kit spur/23T pinion

Has good steering but can roll in sweepers when the bite comes up.

Good luck
