try this seller's decals. Much better than the f1paintlabs decals which I don't recommend. I bought the STR13 and RB14 decal from this ebay seller and the quality is day and night difference. They are precut and laminated and larger than f1paintlabs. F1paintlabs decals(str12) wash or rub off far too easily and some parts of the sheet are too small for the new Tamiya body and is sized more for the smaller Protoform body.

Nice paint work--but I really HATE those new "high downforce" bodies with the super wide nose in an attempt to create more aero!! They are not in keeping with the spirit of the class to look "scale" as possible. F-1 does not have that wide double rail body! Sad really.

But unlike the FW26, the F26 actually handles well.

When did that car ever race? And the ridges are ONLY in the front curve-- not halfway up the top deck. I don't see anything like that on the current 2018 cars??

2004?? and note the ridges stop AHEAD of the front wheels as well as the body is a SCOOP in the front--not a wing. The RC body runs the ridges all the way up on top behind the wheels--and IF you are scale--then you would cut it open over the front wing to let the air in! Only 14 years ago---not today's F-1 at all.

If one is looking to go "full scale" on their F1 race body, then stick to a Tamiya body. Tamiya is a model company and scale is what they are all about. I am currently running the Tamiya 2017 body and wing set on my Tamiya F1 that I only race at TCS races. Why, because it is not competitive enough in open F1 racing. For open F1, I run a Roche F1-16 with the new Protoform F26 body. For performance, it is fantastic. The scoop nose gives more steering, the side pods more rear downforce and I love how the back is designed so you don't have to cut off the whole back of the car to fit. I am also running a fan under the full rear body work. If you want to compare the F26 Protoform body, compare it to the other "pure race" bodies like Montech, Bitty, etc. and then decide which ones you call ugly. With the right paint scheme, the body still looks dang good in my humble opinion.

If I am using TAMIYA F1 rubber for TCS, what wheels do I mount them on? The set for foam or set for rubber? Last time I glued Pits rubber on foam wheels. Is it still similar?

Thanks~
