Default arm fix

I searched all over that site. Could not find anything about making the arms look legal. Could you please describe.
thanks

As for one way. I've been running the tech unit since dec. Well ok, i took the last few months off, so I have run it a few weekends though. Seems to work well though. I did build a different front end with the one-way, and a stiffer diff in it, used AW grease for lube. This smooth the off-power wander.

Since all the F1 chassis look very similar, you can paint the body in any livery that you want and buy the decals separately from www.formula1-rc.com They have most of the current and recent liveries available.

Doh! Yeah, Barber, the body is clear. Sorry for making the assumption that you knew that. There is also a kit that has two bodies. One is clear and the other is painted in a carbon fiber pattern. It looks pretty cool.

This is getting really frustrating! It seems like it only wants to rain on race weekends! I hope they don't just scrap the March race and make that one of the throwouts like happened last year.

Default TA TCS TRACK

Could you guys let me know what motor, and gearing you people are using at the Tamiya America track.

Or maybe what gear you would use on the following motors.

P2K
P2K2
GM3
Monster
Chrome ???
MVP/Hellfire
please tell me numbers and why?

As I recall, you are required to use the kit gearing for TCS. You might check the rules on TA's webpage to make sure, though. If that is the case, I would lean toward the Monster, since it likes to be geared around 7:1 and should be faster in that gear range than the others. You might also look at the Putnam tuned Monster as well.
