Does anyone think a 10scale nitro comeback like the kyosho kf01 would be interesting. Electric is cool I love it but nitro hits different.

The Schumacher kit came with a white front and rear wing and looked god awful. It works with none of the current team's livery. Not wanting to waste this perfectly good wing, I thought I'll try my hand in dying plastics. I could paint the wings, but last time I spray painted montech wings, even with thorough cleaning, the paint didnt really stick that well to the plastic and flaked off. Also any bumps and scraps will only show the white underneath which wouldnt look that good. Bought some cheap black dye I found online, heated up the water up to 70c and held it there, pretty much emptied the entire bottle into the pot and let the wings soak for a few hours. The rear wing came out ok, Its a very dark shade of blue/purple, but passable to look like black, but the front just looks blotchy. Oh well. Im just gonna run with it for now.

man! Look at the tire wear on that. How do you get it so sticky in cold weather. Itís getting too cold now. And I donít have tire warmers yet. Maybe Iíll take a heat gun and carefully warm them up lol.

They pretty much had no grip. Just put together the Icon2 W so just did a shakedown with old tires just to make sure everything worked and nothing came loose before I give her the beans.

soon, I just made a new header pipe for it as I destroyed the last one trying to weld it. Lol. So Iíve since been working on that. The original engine is okay but this ofna P-zero is way better for tune ability. Taking to the track today and likely tomorrow for more testing

well the exhaust, just like the real F1, is between the aero not on top so that wonít be possible plus impractical lol. Zoom and look carefully itís right between the center of the lower spoiler.
