Was in the Chicago/Joliet area this past weekend. Was able to get the Plazma F1 some exposure to the masses in Leisure Hours hobby shop in Joliet. Many were impressed with the car, its build, and its layout. Might get some converts to the Plazma F1 that are currently rolling Tamiya and Yokomo.

Default Front Wing

Hi guys,

I don't have one of these yet, but am thinking of getting one. I was wondering if this front wing would fit the car. Thanks.

The front wing may fit if the holes line up and if the back-end mounting plastic is not too thick to slide into the slot. But thick plastic is easily remedied by Mr. Dremel.

Is there a way that I can make this car to 190mm?

Ok, last 2 questions, for now at least. I'm thinking of going with the Zen Ferrari 641 for the body but am concerned about the back of the body being too tight and not clearing the rear motor pod and side links. Attached pic below:

Also probably go with Zen mounted foams-I'm thinking a little harder on the fronts-correct?

I've read the whole thread, and although I don't yet have a plazma f1 I think I can answer your question.

To make the rear 190 you would have to use F104 tires. On the front it's a little trickier: you can try F104 tires but I think what some else did was put on the whole front end of a f104. Hope this helps.

Yea my front end conversion did not turn out so good. I had all the parts (digging through the F104 manual and ordering them separately) but I did not have a F103/F104 chassis to use as a template to drill the new holes as "eff_one" had with his. I must have been slightly off on one of my holes and there was too much stress on the plastic parts from Tamiya. Lasted 2 minutes before one of the front plastic pieces snapped. Ended up going back to the Kyosho Front End.

Thanks Dean.

I guess I need to make myself a 190mm front out of CF in order to follow UF1 Rules

Hey Ed, where did you get this wing from? I picked one of these up out of a bargain bin at my LHS back in the mid 90's and I've never seen one since. I'd really like another one or two.

Hi Vyger,

I don't have one, just saw it on Ebay and was thinking about it. Did a search for f1 wings and this was one of the results-made by Corally I think. Do a search for item # 181213813820.
