I'd rather get good decals from the USA instead of England. Since it was shown #16 Ferrari would be nice.Always been a Ferrari fan in F1 not always their drivers but the brand.

Since the Tamiya F104 v2 Pro thread has been dead for over a year, I'll also try posting this question here:

Is there any good way to adjust toe on the F104 v2 Pro without removing the turnbuckles? Between the limited room in the front arms and slop in the turnbuckle, I can barely get a quarter turn of the turnbuckle before my wrench hits one of the arms and then it's almost impossible to get the turnbuckle to try and turn it again. I've tried multiple tools and all sorts of angles and run into the same problem. Am I just missing something super easy? I don't want to have to remove the tie rod every time and reinstall a million times to get the desired toe. Thanks!

Here's a quick preview of the Lewis Hamilton car I'll post a finished pic but so far it's beautiful

For the f-104 V2 I would probably pull the turnbuckles off measure them and order a set of aluminum ones that are 2 to 4 mm longer that will solve your tow inproblem. Honestly I run about one and a half to two and a half degrees of toe out on my formula one car as most people are I'm assuming you do as well ,it gives you nice stability and gives you lots of turn in off throttle going into the corners. Towing the front wheels in will give you straight line stability down the straight but your car will lack steering and may be a little darty. I would run zero or at least one degree tow out. Try the longer rods and aluminum to me it makes up set and they have more angles on them so the easier to adjust.

Everything you see in the pictures is in the USA shipping out of Florida. Website should be up in 3 to 4 weeks. All the decal sets include every decal that is showing on the car and a few extras plus it also includes front and rear wing decals that are pre-cut . Also both numbers are included so you can do whatever driver number you prefer or you could just leave them off all together and have a Ferrari theme car for example and put your own number on 😎 I'll keep everyone posted

I’m actually running about 3 degrees of toe out right now and my car understeers like crazy. I want to reduce the toe to around 1 degree, it’s just a pain with the way the turnbuckles are blocked by the arms, making adjustment difficult. That’s why I wondered if there were any tricks to adjusting them without removing the arms over and over again.

You didn't say but you should include a steering wheel decal. Most bodies don't come with one (only the older Tamiya ones did). Keep it generic, shift light, a few knobs and gear screen. Great looking bodies!

I see the montech 2017 f/r mostly for newer liveries, old montech for older ones.

Bitty design bodies seem to be popular as well or montech. I don't see many protoforms as much (likely cus you have to trim so much from the rear to clear).

I use Tamiya 51383 J Parts Front Wing F104. Any wider and I tap boards with the wing edges, lol.
For the rear, XRA373514-K Black X1 Wide Composite Rear Wing.

Awesome, I am perfecting the wing decals but I cant make them for all the wings so Im trying to create a kind of universal template for the majority of wings and the end user can trim a little to make them fit nice. Any Ideas are welcome
