I will have to admit, you do have the best backdrop of any race track I have ever seen, full scale or R/C. The view on the left half of the track is breath-taking!

OK, I am a few pages behind and have not read them all since your post. Tamiya (used to?) made a brake light "module" for brushed motors. I just happen to have a few of them if you need/want one. PM for details. By todays standards, the board is on the large side in my opinion, but very light and easily afixed to an F-1 chassis.

Did someone say "MARTINI" F-104?

With the help of decal man extraordinaire CSeils, it's mainly just wrapping the wings with silver carbon print vinyl, and adding the stickers. I gathered and arranged the logos and Carl finished everything up properly and printed the decals. Now I just have to paint the dang body....

Thanks, it's funny the things people take for granted.

Default Tire truer arbor

I just picked up a used Integy tire truer 4 off RCtech and need the proper arbor for the F104 wheels. Does anyone know what size I need or where to get one?

Jeff,
If your tire truer shaft is 8mm and this is the arbor you need for F103/F104.

just curious, the picture is the kawada, but the links point to the kawada and a 3R piece. are they equally good choices?

Thanks Calvin,

I'm going to see if I can get one at the RCX today. If not I'll order one of those two.

Thanks again

The Kawada is better than 3Racing.
  • Kawada made in Japan.
  • 3Racing made in Hongkong.
