I'm curious to know what people who ran F1 in the IIC thought about the Pardus handout tires in comparison to the Shumizu tires that I'm seeing most drivers use at their local tracks.

They run the full gamut, and I am not in the majority.
Alot of people were quick to blame the tires for the outcome of the race, and for their cars not working the way they thought they should. They are not the absolute best tire for carpet, mainly because they weren't designed for carpet. Given the limited test and practice time we all had with them at the race, I don't think they were that bad. If you are running all of the different chassis brands and want a tire that has rims to fit on all makes, it is a good choice. If you want the ultimate F1 tire, they are not going to be that. I am getting to tires that were left over from Vegas. As soon as they get to me I will be putting them up for sale in the store.

Definitely want to try some out for asphalt. They didn't look too bad on the rug...a tad on the loose side if anything. I think I saw a couple of traction rolls so maybe gluing the sidewalls might have helped some of the people there.

Thanks. After I shipped the F103 out to you, I was digging in the "archives" for a bunch of 1/8 Tamiya stuff I posted over the weekend on fee-bay and found an F103 body set I picked up from D-Drive awhile back and painted and detailed in the old Leyton House March livery. I ran the body once and then went to the body I painted up that was shipped to you with the chassis. Will take some pics and post up later.

I have to say the F1 class was fun at IIC - the tires didn't feel ideal and honestly, they are the only ones I have used on a current model F1 car but it was still fun. Time on track was limited like any big race, but it was the same for the TC and 1/12 cars as well. The cost was not that bad considering what you got - 2-3 meals, free beer at the meet and greet sponsor party, set of tires and rims, goody bag with lots of different quality things. Finally the experience of being at the race (in Vegas) and meeting and talking to other drivers from around the world.

They don't run F1 at my local track, I bought it just for this race and experience to do it. Glad I did -- my have finished 10, but I made the show and had a good time. PS - thanks to Brad for the support of the race and the tire decals, totally finished off the look of the car!!

No they are not, you need to glue them, but they come with everything you need in one package; rims, tires, inserts

Promodvette - here are the pics of the Leyton House cars. First body shell was a D-Drive body set that fit's the F103. Loved the colors and scheme so much, did up a second one on a Tamiya Ferrari F60. Humm, maybe BP will get some ideas.........

that looks cool on the F60 body...Might have to try that on one of the Mclaren bodies I have sitting around

If BP does want to do the Leyton House colors - I have a complete sheet of unused ones that i'd loan out - and I'm sure his will be better then the originals

The Leyton House is on the list of sheets to do, I actually have a Decal Island sheet that I bought before I started doing my own. Lots of new stuff coming in time for the holiday

Howdy y'all, has anyone mucked around with using different o-rings under the t-plate for an F103. I've noticed that o rings come in different compounds such as soft, med and hard.

Just want to get an idea if this is worth testing out.

PS this is for asphalt racing.

You can use different o rings or even neoprene foam like for shock bladders for a different feel. Also a metal washer in place of the forward oring is helpful if you want to reduce flex. I have even used an .030 nylon washer like used on offroad cars inplace of o rings on carpet.

Wanted to share my new McLaren Mercedes - a Unimog car carrier: [Tamiya CC-01]


Actual car carrier currently awaiting completion of fabrication.

Also, due to LewHam leaving McLaren for MercedesGP - the F104X1 livery has been updated to reflect car #1. (It started as the Heikki #2 ride)
