that is one nice looking ferrari. well done

Can I ask, how do you do your custom decals.......I'm wanting to do a variety of car's this year based on the 2010 sponsor's. Is it a program you use and what do you use for your decals.....vinyl?

I've noticed that the Shimizu's don't specify the compound on the rear tires... are the soft, supersoft...or what?

Very nice ride!!!
What did you print the decals on?
I am in the middle of painting up an F60, could really use the barcode graphics

Thanks!
The paint was really nice. same bright red with a hint of metallic. I havent run the car yet, still deciding on a motor/esc.

The wheels and tires are stock tamiya from the f60 kit + bbs decals.

I made the logos in photoshop and printed them on water slide decal paper. Sealed them with decal bonder and clear coated them on the car where possible.

Akura, not sure if you saw the link a few pages back, How to make your own LED kit. I plan on giving it a shot too.

Shimizu makes a few different compounds. What ones did you get front and rear? Did you use the inserts that came with them? Do you run on asphalt?

Thanks aussierevo and kartshifter... But I've been making my own LED lights for F1 for years using single flashing or standard 5mm bulbs and a resistor.... and there's one on my current car...

what I was trying to find out about is this:



the link I posted above doesn't take you directly to the page I was trying to inquire about

There's an indoor asphalt track in my area and the track stays in great form all the time with very high bite.... I can't wait to order a set or the Shimizus and try them
