what exactly does this do?
It's a lever system, when the pod moves side to side, the lever extends one of the damper tubes while simultaneously compressing the other. It probably doesn't compress either damper tube when the pod moves purely forward or backward, which is an improvement over the standard damper disk setup (b'c it decouples that mode of the suspension between the shock absorber and the dampening disk). Hope that helps.

Sharpe, I bet that system works.
104 is looking better and better.

it will be interesting to see the feedback if anyone invest's in them.

to settle a thought is the Renault R25 and R26 arguably the world's most attractive F1 car ever.

or is it just me.

Eric P has run them @ wcrc, but I don't think he cared for the TRG tires, could be that he did not have the optimum compound for that surface ?

Also that was with the F109 chassis.

The R30 doesn't look too bad either

jeff....nice work...looks great.

I have looked at the R30 2010 Renault, and it does grow on you. I note the car tested over the weekend in Barcelona had red on the wings.

For those looking for F60 Barcode stickers, these may be of interest.

Who makes or can make a brake light switch. I don't want a permanent light nor a flashing light becouse the permanent isn't used and a flashing one is only used in the rain.

If you get the Tamiya TLU - 01 light unit you can use the 3 racing led light bulbs. They sell them in flashing or not flashing with out using another control. the unit has an on off switch. I am not sure how well it will fit in the f1 car though. You might even be able to use the 3 racing bulbs without the unit, not sure though.
