My Team Powers Illuminated Setup Board, with LED light stand that can be mounted to the setup glass or used on it's own stand. I chose to use it on it's own stand.

Thanks to Lamar at Gridworks Racing for getting this out to me, in spite of some issues, it was worth the wait. Although I'm not quite sure if i will go mobile with this, which is a shame for it makes for such a pretty work pit, it would be a pity to not show it to anybody, and keep it locked away in my dungeon lab

The setup board is made of tempered glass, with a build in 12V back light. It has setup rule markings and bubble levels to insure a flat work surface. The LED pit light is very bright and has a touch sensitive switch that illuminates red in standby, then white when on. a press and hold dims the work light to a lower level, however I like it full power. It has a glass base that matches the pattern of the board. The board also has a touch sensitive power button to illuminate the board. Pictures don't do it justice, nor do my quick snap shots here.

Here the board is lit with the pit light on full



Here is just the board light


Power switch



Just the board


The board relative to other surroundings

Ha, Thanks Cam! I may just bring it and leave it in my pit spot, rather than transport it. It can be like a club trophy display


Here it is sort of in the normal light of day on my work bench, with the shop fully lit

Hey M! Thanks for the kind words. Impressive collection you have assembled That M2 is a sweet car and reminds me of the original intent of the E30 M3, even with is muscular stubby look. Congrats on the new house.

I'm just using 40wt silicone kit oil in the diffs of both the 6.1 & 6.2. It works well enough on the track, so should work well enough for bashing.

I was interested in a Kyosho Mini, I believe.. However My attention has wandered

That Yeti XL is one heck of a machine! I was looking at it at our local hobby store. It got snapped up with in a few days, which is a good thing as I might have bought it myself

I received a 24T pinon for my WTC Associated 10.5R, so I hope that the right gear for the track. I mounted up my old HPI Sprint 2 McLaren body just to try it. I have a fresh McLaren, as well as some other bodies coming for it, however I would really like the LMP style Team Muslo.

I can't seem to get the SkyRC ESC software to load on either of my Windows 8 machines, and mill try it on a Windows XP.

I hate the long body post look, and will cut them as soon as I know what to run with this chassis


The 1s Toro ESC looks to be a nice unit, however I can;t get the Skylink to open on my computers

I can't stand the long body post either. I'm trying to hurry up and get this fitting down on my f1 so I can clip those suckers off!

Can't wait to see your F1 car! I want one too, but will wait for a bit until I settle in to one

Yeah, I hate cars with long posts :P I have a Porsche GT1 and a Mercedes CLK GTR bodies coming for the pan car as well as some extra body posts. That's when I'll cut these suckers. Mean while I'm waiting for reflex Racing to get the LMP Muslo back in stock.

Anyone know of any other LMP or Open cockpit bodies that will fit the 200mm pan car?

Will a Speed Passion LMP fit?

I painted up a Mercedes Benz CLK GTR for the WGT chassis. I so much prefer these bodies over the typical generic Touring Car A few in our club are interested on USGT, so I ordered up some tires and will maybe convert my VTA over to USGT, or get another chassis.



I didn't mount the rear duck spoiler as intended










With the 1/10 fleet
