I am an idiot!!

I am a freakin moran!!!!

I am a nutjob!!!!

My wife is gonna kill me!!!!

My son thinks I'm wacked!!!!

My dogs are even thinking I've gone over to the "other" side....

First thing I did was to buy me a a new "real" car last year. 2006 Mustang GT. 5 speed 300 HP....

SO what did I do last Friday....

Went out and bought the F103GT and finished putting it together last night....
100% stock......

And it looks like we will be running the F103GT class the my local track as 3 other people have bought/ordered this kit...

Now I have to get a practice body for this car....

Where is the problem?

1 Give your son the F103 GT you just built

2 Buy yourself another F103GT

3 Put a TRF scarf on the dog's neck

4 Put the the son, the dog, the 2 F103 in the Mustang and got to the track to race the 3 other guys.

5 Change the wife.

All the best to everyone for 07

[QUOTE=gtypecanare]Some pics from today.


I wish so badly for Ferrari to make an LMP car. Maybe Herr Schumacher could try and break Tom Kristensen's record 7 wins @ LeMans.

Default Get rid of black nose sticker

Here's a quick MS paint edit, showing an all red nose-no black sticker.

I haven't decided. I just didn't know you could buy them separately. I'll have a browse of the online shops. I know the Australian distributor definitely wouldn't bring them in as they don't even import the 415's or Evo5's.
Thanks

You know Rod, its gonna be hard for anyone else to paint up an original body with Tamiya decal sets if you keep painting all of these bodies!!!! Awesoem work.

Can anyone tell me the part number for the rear mounting posts that come with the Courage kit? I need to put them on my F103GT kit so I can use the Courage body.

Lol...my brother did the Ferrari.

Remember how I said I'll do the Jordan 7Up scheme...well here she is. I still think the 7Up scheme looks best as an F1 car, hands down. In any event, here are some pics for your viewing pleasure.

That is an awesome looking ride! I wonder if Tamiya has any Williams FW24 decal sets laying around it might look slick on a Courage body.

Let me as you though, how many of these will you ever use? I mean, the nice guy I am, I would be willing to take any of them off your hands!!

Nice looking paint jobs.

@ the "type" brothers :

What wheels are you guys using? I like the way the wheels sit in the wheel wells. Thanks

The one's I''m using are Ride 24mm 16spoke wheels. They are 0mm offset so I use spacers and 6mm hubs to "fill" the wheel wells.

Edit: I also use a circle cutter to smaller wheel wells. My brother uses tamiya wheels.

You can find them here in the US: Speedtech
