Might want to check out the Tq1000 wire while your at it. It's sort of a 16/13 gauge hybrid.... Just rewired from 16g to this and...have zero pod tweak issues.

thing is, I had some stuff in the shoppingbasket @ TQracing and would expect them to have some TQ-wires in stock.

About 16awg wires, I've used turnigy wires, very soft and no pod issues on the bench ;-) now on to the bodyworks...

Here in WI you can get that very carbon vinyl(the good heavy stuff) at most automotive stores. It'll be in the vehicle accessory dept. Usually goes for about 8-9 $us for an 8"x 5' roll of it.

Has anyone modeled a popular f1 rc car in any CAD programs? I'd like to tinker around with some idea's, but I'd rather not start from scratch. FGX would be the best, but a f103/4 would work too!

any parts would help to, ie servo's, motors, esc's, etc.

I have a shock question for the group. I am building an Exotek F1R2 and I am considering which rear shock would be best. I am considering the Tamiya 53901 TRF Special Damper and the Tamiya 42102 TRF Special Damper Set. One shock versus four. I thought that having four, if the 42102 and 53901 shocks are truly compatible, would allow me to test different shock/spring combos more quickly.
Ideas and opinions on the compatibility/comparison of these two shocks?

We make the decals sold through TQ and other shops around the world. Based on my experience wrapping arms and the customer feedback I will tell you it is very easy to work with and durable as well. I would say that its the best out there, but I'm not quite that arrogant.

Check the shaft lengths to see if one set is shorter. I've used the 53901s for F104, F103 and F1R builds. 53901 appears to be discontinued.

Scott,
Email me, I have a set in stock if you want 4. For anyone needing a shock I buy the sets and split them up, it works out better for everyone as I am able to sell you the customer the same shock for half the price the only difference is it won't come in the box, it is brand new however.

I think the AE springs may fit correctly, but I'm now thinking of going back down to the 2.5. The 3.0 is around 18/19lbs I think, so I may be way overdoing it there.
If you find a Tamiya spring collar it will fit on the SP shock and allow the use of Tamiya springs. I have been running a TAMIYA blue and sometimes even a white.

It's a good idea to get one and they're not terribly expensive. I can notice the difference in my car with and without it.

For me, One of the stuff I "needed" from TQ this time was Exotek POM 93T spur gear that will hold 16 ceramic diff balls.

And the aluminum rear main axle bearing holders made by Tuning Haus.

And the TiNi 2mm circlips also made by Tuning Haus.

Doug,
If I finish ahead of you in the next race, I will thank my new parts.
But if you finish ahead of me, you can thank your new adjustable servo mount.
