dtm, how's your rebuild of RR ? add anything new in the last rebuild ?

still interested in the one-made race ? F201 huh ?

your new 1:1 car looks very cool

I am only rebuilding the RR so it is in a good condition for storage......I can't stand 1 year old dirt...when I eventually do run it again!!!

F201 would be cool...but only if we can all get cars and spares...they are a bit scarce at the moment!!!

Thks!!

why you worry about spare part supply? with that speed of the sport tuned motor, I dont think you will toast your car.

Exactly.....with no airflow over the motor...it may just 'toast' the chassis!!!

I found a slight problen on the RR...the screws holding the plastic pulley on the front one way had started to unthread (all four!). 2 snapped screws and no way to get the ends out (I used threadlock!!)

Anyway, have resorted to AA glue the pulley onto the shaft plus the two remaining screws!!!!

downgrade your motor to a silver basic stock 540 johnson before you can get hold of an alloy motor mount !
