      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

  1. dcowan added a post in a topic I have a question about slicks   

    Most race teams video record the launch of the car at the starting line. The white line helps to accentuate the tire rotation so it shows up better on the pictures. As far as writing usually the pit crew may simply put an ID number or psi or circumference measurement.Some sportsman racers with dragster write their dail in on the slick. To make wrinkle walls? I have have used a mototool and round bit to carve in the wrinkles and then flatten the bottom, use steel wool to smooth out the appearnce and dull it down. Or just give up and buy them from competition resins. Remember to do each tire separately against the rotation, carve one side with wrinkles going left to right toward the bead for the drivers side and the other right to left. Do not do like Monogram did on the Snake and Mongoose kits and have booth tires the same.
