No one is asking, so I will: where are the spare parts?
The rear bulkheads, port and starboard, have recessed holes to hold the flat head machine screws. These holes are not the correct diameter or the bevel is off. Three out of the four holes have cracked more than half way through the depth of the bulkhead. There was NO impact (wreck). I have taken the car apart because the diff leaks 10,000 wt. grease. Also, the motor mount screws backed out and stripped out 1st gear spur. I may not have re-lock tighted them the last time I pulled the engine (to service the diff), so it may have been my error.

At last weekend's 200mm Nationals, a couple of guys brought along their F180s and to see them in real life was really good. One guy drove his but I was also driving at the same time so I only saw it out of the corner of my eyes.

Later, Serpent UK sent me some clips of their test drive that was taken from a cellphone and I've edited all the clips into one movie. You can download it now at 3hobby.net.

Wow, you have a really good looking collection of 201s!

For the F180, do the Renault, best looking current team IMHO, second only to MacLaren.

Man, do the shells come prepainted or did you paint everything yourself? Also, where did you source the stickers?

Your collection is very impressive. How do you make decals? On the computer? Do you need a special program to do it, or just some practice?
