Hey Goingfast, thanks for the reply. I actually picked up two of these FF01 in separate auctions on ebay in a short amount of time. One is in pretty decent shape which i think i will recondition and shelf, The other came damaged. I was kinda happy it was damaged, I can run it and not feel bad about it. Since i will be running it, i was thinking about gluing it up or plastic welding it. I have never plastic welded before and will do a ton of research if i decide to go that route. I've epoxy 'ed things before (resin in particular) and it doesn't last. Ofcourse finding a replacement would be the way to go. If you do have one, i would gladly pay you a fair price for it. Maybe I'll start a thread about plastic resin repair? Hmm we'll see. If you dont have the part, no worries. I'll figure something out, its just good to feedback from guys who have FF01's. And to everyone else, its good to see that you all are all so passionate about RC's Lol. Keep the dream alive! RC!!

One of my FF02's, with Kose arms, forgot who made the aluminum steering set-up.

Thanks for playing.



Well then you need thicker glasses or need to grow a larger brain because the one that you have says alloy gearbox = laydown shocks. Didn't your parents tell you to not smoke crack? It's not good for your brain especially small ones like yours.

Tamiya F1 springs inside the rear shocks so it lifts a rear wheel in corners.
A shim in the front diff to add a very little slip.

The lifting rear wheel keeps both front wheels on the track under power, and the shim to add a little slip/traction control.

Also to remember to brake before a corner and drive through the corner.
Brake in a corner and you will lose the rear end.

looked in garage for my cars earlier, unfortunately they are in many bits with most small parts either lost or in other places.
Was so thinking of putting the TA03F together again in FWD mode.

Good lets keep it that way...wouldn't want to hurt your feelings....

BTW don't flatter yourself....99% of the people on this board most likely don't know WTF you are and probably don't give a sh*t either. If these people did find out who you are they'd probably laugh their f*king @ss off seeing as you post like a 10 yr old.

Sounds like you are actually proud of the fact you post like a 10 year old while trying to get more new people into racing... What a moron....
