I didn't remember the name but I remember the split chassis.

Do me a favor and bring it out around tax return time. Much less drama justifying the cost with my wife.

Yeah, I'm waiting with cash in hand too.

Dave, safe to assume this will be a 1/10 electric car? With 4 wheel independent suspension? Any time frame? Thanks

Bob, yes the car will be 1/10 and will have 4 wheel fully independent suspension with direct drive. Nothing else like it anywhere!

Time frame: If all goes well, by January. No guarantees though, the prototype is not yet ready for testing. Hopefully soon though. We don't want to rush this car to market, we want it done right!

Default Finally a pic...

Well it looks like we finally got an image of the new F104 McLaren from Tamiya. I hope we get to see some more pics. I wonder what version of the McLaren Tamiya used to model the RC after?

Tamiya F104, Vodafone McLaren MP4/24 #58475

That is sweet! Will be nice to see some new colors on the local tracks besides the usual suspects of Ferrari and Red bull.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

I can only imagine how many RedBull and Toro Rosso cars will be showing up once this body is released.

So if it's modeled after the real car we already know it's slower than the F60 around the track and has a tendency to break easily? ;-)

The RM will be fine since it's fiberglass, you'll be able to use the traction. The long fiberglass upper deck is something you want to look at if you feel like the steering is a little too dead. The pivotball suspension works well outdoors. The oring suspension works well too, but I have seen both work outdoors. Indoor, oring all the way. The Tamiya premount tires work, or a 25 shore for the rear and maybe 35 in front if you can get Zen tires or similar. Black or gold springs up front, with 20,000 on the king pins. Rear 25-30 in the shock, red spring or even lighter (the florescent minicar springs are lighter). 10,000 on the damper plate. White paragon on the tires, full rear, 1/4 front, cover the paragon with sunscreen when it soaks in (10 min).
What about Spur Gears? is there a way to change it to 64P on the F103RM? Looks like the one it came with the kit it was a notch or something like that in what of the sides

I think you can use the Tamiya Spur Gear Adapter, #54215. I've put a link below.

That should work fine. HPI used to include an adapter with their spur gears...not sure if they still do. Dan's also made an adapter. And Kimbro makes some of their spur gears reamed out to take the metric bearing Tamiya uses in their diff. The Kimbro will make the smoothest diff as it uses the bearing...but they are sometimes out of round.

Found the kimbro spur for tamiya f1 cars and it does work smooth

Still no nose flares so no realistic Toro Rosso or Red Bull :-(

But where would you get the flexy front wing?
