This dude, Calvin Lee who can't stop fiddling with these cars After I saw his I wanted one... soooooo nice... Here are some pics of his car, but he has since made more upgrades... scroll down to see chassis... The 104 I've been driving the last year he built and called the CAL2011... it had two upgrades during the year with one recall I'm not kidding....

i have one and it is great. i can set the car up so i am able to push it more.

also, dear exotek,

can you please design some front arms for the f104 car where you can adjust front camber? this would be a great upgrade for this car. i got spanked by some f103s last weekend and i think if i had more front camber on one side of the car i would have done better.

Are you serious? That chassis in the last pic needs no upgrades anymore.. Just a good driver!!

DAAAMN! Sooo....where would I order the chassis in the last pic? I'm positive that's not one of those Hong Kong knock-offs.

i know i've seen them on d-drive sports, but there is a dude on the USF1 site that's selling them as well - dunno if he'd ship them overseas

look 2nd or 3rd one on this page - http://uf1series.com/_news/news_2011.html

Here's some (crappy iphone) pics of my finished Ferrari shell... gone for a update of the late 80's early 90's version.. black wings etc.

What you can't see is the black is actually carbon effect vinyl, and the whole car is matte.... now can anyone spot the obvious mistake I've made?

Will take some better, on track, photos this weekend
