Mark I don't believe that the NSR tyres are eurethane. They appear to have a join like the "rubber " is wrapped and joined also they can be " treated" and it improves grip.. Any petroleum base substance normally ruins eurethane tyres. But no matter what they are made off the classic tyres look good and have great shape. I would like to see them make some 7mm wide higher profile tyres.
How will you attach the top rear radius rods/ties or are they glued to the body? Also, the rear end on the body looks slim, what adjustments to the chassis build did you have to make to accommodate it?
I've pretty much finished this refitting of a build I began 5 years ago. New cockpit interior, new driver (Immense Miniatures Jackie Stewart head of course), and new engine detailing. I kept the old running gear and chassis as the car has yet to be raced, but it doesn't seem to have lost any zip over the past half decade.

A ha, the secret weapon is unleashed? All ready for battle. Nigel
Not quite Nigel. I still need to attach the body mounting post and reattach the slot guide. Prudence and past experiences suggest that I strengthen the body and accessories since the model (including the unattached pieces) weighs in at just 53.6 grams. Although my car is modeled after a BRM, I still build my models more like a Lotus!
