Default Strengthening your F1 or On-road bodies

Just a little video I did up that shows how I re-enforced the Ferrari F1 replica body for my Tamiya F104v2. Enjoy!

+ YouTube Video

Hey Justinco,

I just watched your videos on youtube. Very informative. I'm thinking about buying a serpent f110 but wanted to get those p zero tires and wheels that you have on your F1. What brand and part # are they?

Thanks in advance

Thanks! The P-Zero is just a sticker. I am running Ride R1 tires on it right now, not sure of the part #, think it is medium compound.

Cool. I stumbled upon this a little earlier in the day. Your build skills are solid; that power supply that you built for me is still running strong. It keeps chugging along despite all the SXT, motor spray, Xray and VBC plastic shards that it has to endure on a weekly basis.

I hope what you say is true that you are going to get a touring car and come back to 5280 Raceway. Heck, last Sunday's F1 race looked fun enough that I'm even considering joining that fray. If so, I will obviously need to study your most recent instructional video closely.

I am going to try and come out more often for sure. Not sure when I will get a touring car but I definitely have it on the list. See ya soon.
