Although I bought the front one-way...I'm running full time 4WD....it had enough turn in to cope!!

Running 23T pininon is marginal on the plastic motor mount (I smell some plastic burning)....so I put on the Racy alloy motor mount!!

burning plastic? "you smell what dtm's cookin'?". A friend of mine tested his F-201 with the stock gearing but he fitted a Dyna-run Super touring motor. boy that car had some go! but it still barely keeps up with a F-103 with a sport tuned motor...

Having some troubles in making the body mods on the williams but i'm getting there...

I got myself a Tamiya Opel V8 Coupe....I think this shell looks quite 'cute'!!!!
how much the shells? by the way, u got an opel V8 shell eh? thats a nice body but the stock rear wing looks a bit wimpy... try to install the tamiya lightweight wing set on that. makes the car a bit more "macho" know what i mean?

The stock wing on the V8 does need some mod!!
