Here's my new project. Just completed it today, and thought I should post the picture before hitting the boards with it. It's also a Roche Evo.

How do you add a tail light that only comes on when you are off throttle or braking. basically just off when you pull the tigger?

Why do you want it to only blink under braking? In full scale F-1 it blinks constantly under any rainy conditions. It's to help the drivers identify the rear of the car in front of them in poor visibility!

Actually, on current F1 cars, the brake light flashes when the driver is off of the throttle and the hybrid system (ERS) is harvesting. It's such a drag on the car that the brake light is used to warn other drivers that the car ahead is harvesting and may slow suddenly as opposed to just coasting.

But yeah, they blink non-stop during the rain, too.

Thus leading to the Hamilton / Rosberg incident in 2016 when Hammy saw Nico was still on harvest mode and dove to the right and when Nico defended, Lewis took the wild ride across the grass, into Nico and they both ended up in the sand box. But I don't think either brought a pail and spoon to play with.

Really enjoyed racing this season - winner of the South Swedish F1 Cup and second at the Nats. Roche F1 EVO - a fantastic chassis!

Barcelona? Oh man, Toto was mad! It made Hamilton look bad, but Nicos move was ill-judged and too late.

Agreed Nico moved late but....... he was still ahead and you know Hamilton would have tried to push Nico off if the roles were reversed.

BTW - the Tamiya 2017 body and wings were good. Car was more stable through the sweeper than the F60 body at Tamiya. Got my F26 body and going to try to paint up to test this weekend at TQ in advance of the ROAR Regional and will try both the Tamiya 2017 front wing and the Montech 2017 version.
