as of now, not yet.

i've heard rumors previously that tamiya was working on a "hardened" front suspension arm system for the F-104. maybe it will be similar to the carbon-reinforced front arm option for the F-103RM.

but since Tamiya didnt release any F-104 arm system this year, i guess theyre still working on it... unless the rumors are incorrect?

That way if you have a weak driver is randomly paired with a strong driver one is penalized by being scored together.
We and others do the same thing for series races which is what everyone is used to. This is a once a year one shot special for bragging rights to whichever team takes home the gold. The car companies love getting the trophy sent to them after the pics.

Don't forget alphacat. If he smells a race forming on the island of Toga he will breakout the titanium oars and push the USS Ronald Reagan out of the way to get there.

Speaking of...Andy, all your stuff ( I hope) is boxed and ready for delivery.

John! whatup! You will not believe this , actually you probably will. I've ran one heat race this whole year no kidding. My job has me doing everybodys stuff for them. I think it's kinda fixed now and all the cars are ready. Just waiting for the carpet to get here for the winter. Instead of a pm I thought it would be better here so everyone can say "HI" to an rc legend.

Everybody say hi to three.

Back to business, what sponsors have you guys got in mind for F1 racing?
