One off topic (from the decals)... Do I need to have the original motor connectors on to make my F201 TCS legal?

Thanks,
Roy
We are still on schedule for the site launch with the first 3 decal sets available on the 20th.

Hey Steve,
It's good to hear from ya, I hope all is well with ya. It was an intense TCS Nationals and if you were in the mix it would have been epic. I hope you can make it out for the regional race at Tamiya America. It's been quiet at the track for the past two weekends, plus the track is green with all the rain we had the SoCal area.

Hi George,
Yes, I will be trying to attend all the races next year around the country,
Bruce and I are going to attempt to go to all the races in Aliso Viejo and WI, PA, GA, MD, TN, Burien and of course the Nationals.
I think I have a very competitive next year for the races, I have been doing a lot of testing and of course the Wind Tunnel and
Simulation Rigs have been working around the clock!!!

Steve.

I've gotta have a Ferrari. I don't like the Tamiya version, the AMS is okay. Mark, I hope your decals blows theirs out of the water.

Neil,

I am still working on the Ferrari set, right now I am having dificulty reproducing the new vodophone and gradient Marlboro logos used on the 04 Ferrari.

If you don't mind me asking what exactly do you not like about the Tamiya and AMS decals? I am asuming your problem with the Tamiya set is the lack of Tobacco sponsors, is the AMS problem a durablity or flat finish issue?

Mark

The Tamiya logos are too old for me, the AMS logos are good, but they do scrap up very easily.

Yea the AMS decals look great at first but they do scuff too easily. its a shame really, if they were to clearcloat them they would hold up much better.

I tried the high torque servo saver. it's too big and it's hitting the upper deck. I guess you cut it shorter to fit?

I use the black one my car but if you use the white one justuse the middle hold for the link and trim down the sides.

You can also use the small Kimbrough but you will have to trim it.
