Steve, whose decals would you get? AMS has the best quality that I have seen. There may be others out there though. I would also suggest that you read up on the laws regarding tobacco advertising, just to be safe. Since RC cars are considered by the gov't to be "toys" you may have to play games in order to sell tobacco decals in the same shipment as a car, for example. Maybe it would have to be two separate orders in two separate packages or something like that.

Hi Guys,

The ones we are getting are straight from Tamiya which has been previously on their F103 chassis before. And thanks for the email and input guys

Also, We are getting in some Aluminum Hex hubs (with the rubber band around the pins style) for the F201 soon. These are the same as the ones on the 414M2 and they work great on the F201 as well (I tried them out on mine already so I know they fit.)

By the way, very nice looking McLaren!!!

Thanks

Steve Wang

Wow I didn't know these cars were so popular. I just put in an order for one. My friend has one as well, and we found out a track by us is trying to get the class going for the winter on the carpet. They also hold a TCS race in January.

Hi Guys,

We were finally able to get a class of F201s together over the weekend, and it was a lot of fun!!! We ran stock ratio with 19T motors in it, most of the guys were running Pit Shimizu tires, and in a parking lot track we had no problem with traction, lots of speed out of the car, and a lot of spectators watching.

And also, the Tamiya hop-upped cars were equally competitive with the Cross hop-upped cars which means you don't have to spend a whole lot in hop-ups in this class to have a competitive car. Also, rumor has it that Tamiya is thinking of using the 19T motor for the F201 class next year
