Default AMS Decals

Does anyone know of another source of AMS decals other than Rainbow 10?

I ran my F104 for the first time today. It was on carpet and it was, humbley submitted, DIALED! No instability, smooth transitions in the corners, stable on power too. Option aluminum motor mount, rear battery box and soft 'TEE" plate.

Am I just luckey?

Default 21.5 gearing

I just picked up a 21.5 at the RCX today. I will be running it with a LRP sphere tc. Does anyone have a starting point for gearing?


Thanks

This ain't your first rodeo Marty, you know how to setup a car, and this car is very fast and stable when put together properly

btw, what tires were you running ?
