We used to run the Fenix with 30k kyosho grease, before moving to Traxxas pucks into a ball diff ... And then 2 months later the spools were born

I ran Traxxas pucks like a year before they had a Fenix diff. The spool doesn't work everywhere. Even with black carpet, there are some green tracks, spools are garbage there.

Not Tamiya, a Korean project build. Pretty trick!

I'm working on a Yokomo build as we speak. Should be a fun project.

F1 Helmet handy color tip is to use a Silver Metallic Sharpie to paint your helmet a certain color. Its much more durable than using standard paint and easier to work with. You can also mask out certain sections for decals or even the visor, which is stock black

The text in the description and during the video points out its a home made project by the owner. You won't be seeing this in production any time soon.
If anyone fancies something like this there's the current 3Racing FGX Evo kit, and Exotek can sell you the carbon chassis for it.

It's a shame because I would buy the hell out of that.

So, are bodyshells on F1's merely decorative and to stop the electronics falling out, or are there bodies that are better for track performance?
