Looks like an emulation of the YR-F2 to me. Nothing wrong with that but when the bar is that high, tamiya have their work cut out. After all, there's no point in bringing out somehting like that if you can't beat a 20 year old design.

If it is true (and Google doesn't lie, as we all know) that they're going to bring it out with round battery slots (for Nicd/Nimh) I think it is a great missed opportunity. I will wait until they launch the Lipo upgrade.

Guys,

I was just wondering if there would be any interest in reproduction YR-F2 kits in both TC and M-chassis size. I'm looking into the feasibility of producing a limited run of kits, with subtle upgrades to the original design for current technology etc.

If there is enough interest (which I'm hoping there is) I'll do my sums etc on pricing etc.

Cheers,

Steve

That has already been done. I have alloy arms, bulkheads and suspension holders made by an UK company that also makes suspension plates (the upper for front and lower for rear) and chassis plates. It doesn't look like they had too much of a market for these.

C-hubs and hubs rear and front are a straight fit from the YR-4 range of cars.

Upgrading this car is very difficult as the chassis can take Lipo batteries as it is. One area that has not been tackled yet is fitting modern dampers but I am not sure how necesary that would be as I have not tested extensively the original items under competition conditions. The main problem there would be the very limited room available for front damper. The rear can very easily be converted to TRF-style shocks.

A side-by-side saddle-pack configuration as used in the Durango DEX 410 would be the way to go. This would move more weight on the rear whilst creating more clearance at the front for the larger diameter TRF (or similar) shocks. The problem is to find a way to rearrange the top deck supports in such a way as to accomodate the batteries. I am looking into this at the moment as I have just purchased a saddle pack.

Niznai,

I wasn't aware of this...if you wouldn't mind, could you please advise of the compny name as I'd love to build up a YR-F2 (if the company still offers the parts, or even exists). I love the look of these cars but have never owner one, and have been looking for one for awhile.

Thanks and regards,

Steve

You can get major chassis pieces from fibre-lyte in the UK. I have a YRF2 Special using the front end pieces from a standard YRF2 ie one spring,no shocks and no rear shocks,just springs like a pan car. It works just fine! Don

Here's some pictures of my FF01, just fitted new universals and upright.
Parts are getting harder to come by so i changed to standard Tamiya universals and found other uprights that fitted. My orginal old FF01 Tamiya universals where worn out completely.

Looking at that you can see where Xevo got the design for their Mini

Default Spare parts anyone?

Hello, great thread. Just got introduced to Tamiya FF01, and I gotta say it is fun to drive. Seen alot of nice FWD cars in this tread, nice guys. My FF01 needs some replacement parts that are hard to find. The parts I need are the "FF01 A parts gear case." I have only found it on ebay from a seller in the U.K. It will come out to around 60 bucks after shipping which is too expensive for me. Was hoping someone might have the part and be will to sell it. Anyone? Once again great thread, lots of awesome cars! If I don't get the part I might try to repair it. Does anyone know if it is possible to repair "plastic resin?" Love the tread, love the cars, love the hobby! Roman.

Looks nothing like a Xevo other than a double deck chassis, I guess all double deck front motor chassis are copies of a FF01.

Xevo

completely open alloy motor cage
lay down shocks
longtitudinal battery position

uh...yeah....right...lay down (pun intended) the crack pipe...

You are missing the front bumper.....That is why your front case busted up easily
I have to look to see If I have any parts left in my bin....

Shows how little you understand R/C

The alloy motor cage is because it is easier for small manufacturers to make alloy parts rather than the cost of moulding. Hence the lack of gear box housing on the Xevo

The lack of moulding means changes have to be made .. hence laydown shocks as they couldn't mould parts to attach the shocks to

And longitudinal battery? Well the Xevo can do it both ways ... and interestingly the faster way was across the chassis at TITC

But then again you are the expert

LMFAO...and what does this have anything to do with copying? Going by your logic EVERY gearbox on the plantet is a copy of a FF01...

You are obviously NOT an engineer so don't pretend to be one.

LMFAO....having lay down shocks has NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH to do with having an alloy gearbox. The FF03 has lay down shocks and last time I checked it doesn't have an alloy gearbox.
