Carrera Ford GT & C7R Finished

Postby HomeRacingWorld » Tue Jun 20, 2017 9:11 pm

I spliced and soldered extension wires on the Ford to keep the lights/digital board.

Both cars have the new adapters and Sloting Plus guides.

Watch on youtube.com


I mixed Silicone and Paul Gage for kicks.

They are VERY close in action and that is what I wanted. Modern Ford vs Chevy.

Very smooth and the difference in performance was well worth the time/investment.

Well thanks Bob, appreciate the kind words.

It's been fun tuning these as well as seeing others post their own setups.

I just hope the Corvette doesn't blow a front tire on the last lap....With the addition of the Ford, one could run the entire LeMans GT series from this year....Aston, Porsche, Corvette, Ferrari, and Ford
