Thanks for the reply!

Im going to be using the Speed Passion Reventon S - But cant see if it supports the 6.0v for the servo. Does anyone know if the Reventon S works with the Savox 1251?

Cheers!

Hi Guys - Can anyone see anything wrong with the following item?
The trader has great feedback, So I'm thinking this is legit - But the price is REALLY low.

If it's dodgy please let me know!

It'll be no problem at all - both are mainstream components for RC racing. The Savox's do have a reputation for high current draw when they reach the limit of travel, but I've had no problems with mine (just made sure that the EPA was set below the physical limit of travel).

It's personal preference, and an element of risk mitigation, but I tend to buy electronics from local suppliers, so when/if things go wrong it's generally quicker and less costly to resolve.

Depending on where you are, the SpeedPassion web site has a direct online store with delivery from several countries. Better yet, these are things that are good to get from your LHS.

Cheers for the reply!

Another daft question now - Does anyone know where I can find a red blinking LED that will fit nicely as the F1 Tail light?
I tried finding a ready made kit for it, But I'm likely looking in the wrong places.

Cheers!

I suspect it's just movement; I never suffered a problem on the track, but I was able to run into problems by alternating maximum steering left and right a few times. This was with a LRP ESC system, supplying 6V@3A, which is above average. EPA was well below the servo's physical limit.

My BT-45b had its maiden run today. As I hoped the car behaved like a 70s beast. The rear wanted to step out everytime I touched the throttle (drifting yeah!). The car behaved good and had a lot of steering (a thing I love and need for my driving style), but the exit of a tight corner, especially the accelerating was difficult. After trying a lot of things (softer springs, camber, etc.) I added toe in (didn't think it would work) and boom (!) the rear calmed down immediately. The laptimes dropped 3 thenth. Still the performance in comparison to the F104v2 (laptime record 15.98 s) suffers from the smaller tires, the heavier car and the shitty aerodynamics . My best today were several 16.5s laps. The car made friends with some of the older clubguys directly who loved the body on first sight. This came to favour as one of them is going to get some bigger rear tires from an unknown manufacturer which will help the scale look and my acceleration

Can anyone help me out with what my options are for lightweight F1 bodies?

AFAIK, Tamiya only produced one lightweight body and it's been discontinued:

Some of the other after market bodies may be your best bet, but i've never compared weights.

The Speed PAssion body is not a lightweight, but it's lighter than regular weight Tamiyas.

Found time to finish the body and to do some fine adjustments. Additionally I found the perfect rear foam tires for this car. They are 45mm wide and 72 in diameter. They will come on monday, so on the pictures are still the small tc foam tires.

















I LOVE THE LOOK!!! I am staring at it the whole time Can you guess the driver and the year?


Below you get the idea what hides underneath. The body is a perfect wrap for my changed TC6 chassis

Awesome work. With the wider rears - it should give you better cornering speed + the closer to scale look.

I don't know about the year but Hans Joachim Stuck used a later adopted European Union flag on his helmet.

I think it might have been 1977 ?
