Great job on that McLaren... I was thinking of doing one for my F201. I was able to get the decal set with Senna's helmet colors.

Fantastic!!! Looks like real especially that Mika Hakkinen helmet Brings back memories of the old times.

Alvin: I dont know about the MVP but if its a 24deg stock I would go with anywhere from FDR of 4.2-4.6 depending on the track

Default How it was done

Okay guys, here it is and it's really simple. The car is an F103 and the body set is Tamiya's Sauber C12. Mika is from the West Mclaren body set (you can't see from the picture but he's pretty scuffed up but I got two more of them). The paint is Pactra's Flourescent Red backed with White. The Rear wing end plates are covered with Tamiya's Flouresecent Red trim tape (perfect match). The stickers are custom made water decals covered with Avery clear mask (easy to do because everything appears over a white background). The logos and just about ANY logo can be found here. http://www.logo.nino.ru/

This was done in the name of science, mainly to see how the water transfer decals will hold up to abuse.

The rear grip with pinks was perfect but the same can't be said for my front tires I tried to turn in nice and gently from full speed (with a 13 turn motor ) and it got no steering and hit a big fat hose with the right front side (it broke the upper arm but I couldn't see that under the Le Mans shell) the next 4 mins had the car turning sharply to the right with no steering input wich resulted in another broken arm
A quick after race test and inspection showed that it had a nice 15m turning circle without my thumb on the steering stick (yes, British, still use a stick radio, in fact the stick version of the Futaba 3PJS) and 5 degrees toe out on one side.
I only had one spare arm so I put a new one in and tried to fix the other, no luck, it was quite badly damaged
Next round, reset trim+toe-in, steering sharply to the right again after a slight scrape
I can't get spares! (but the tires worked)

What were you running up front? Also, make sure the tires aren't rubbing on the body when you go to full lock. If you lock one of the front wheels, you'll lose all steering!

I was using Tamiya high grip fronts and they didn't rub on the body. I think that they had far too much grip, the other tires i tried were some medium grip ones which had too little grip and needed additive to prevent understeer.
When my LHS gets some more tires in I'll try some pinks on the front.
