Questions??

Ok, 7.2V, thanks.
About that kind of bathtub instead of the most conventional, with FRP or carbon. If it really have real potential to be good chassis?

Smile Jordan Ford 191

A couple pages back I wrote about my old Jordan Ford 191 (F102), and showed some pictures of a very dusty F1.

I have now renovated it, and wanted to show some pictures of how it turned out.

I decided to only use parts I had from back when I paticipated in races ('94 and '95), and I wanted it to still be a racecar, so it is not going to be sitting on a shelf (therefore I didn't do that much restoration work on the body).

I think it came out quite allright, but I have to put in a less hot motor, because at my first testrum at my club it was clear that it went far to fast for my cababilities

Well here it is:

Today has new photo, in below.
Come on, anybody say something, please?
Don't see it's amazing, even isn't in market yet, so pricey, then maybe will not sell in outside of Japan.

mac, I've been told this is not a kit but a conversion for the F103. Is this correct? And for that price, you can buy 2 F104s...

But it is a very nice chassis indeed!

Yes, conversion kit, if you are meaning the design, is just a copy in some point view.
About the price, i think is worthy, due it's amazing, then don't forget it's possible to decrease the price in past of the time, as happened a lot of kits.
About the F104, i don't like so much the battery position, i think it just fits to run on technical and grippy conditions, and the driver must have a lot of experience to run pan-cars, not like me which has just experience to run 4wd TCs.
Off course, if all the market is favor on the 104, instead of 103 which is going out of the stocks, then i should choose the new 1, isn't it?

Hey Peter, that's Jordan is a blast from the past. Great job with the resto work.

Mac, that car is impressive. What's the street price on it?

I just got my F104 Pro last night and the kit looks AWESOME. The body is much more impressive in person. None of the photos online have done it justice. I still have to figure out what paint scheme to put on it. I'm hoping to start the build tonight; gluing the edge of the chassis will take the longest. I'll post up some pics later of the build.

I put already the link through the official site, anyway try here
Well, i could say here that costs 39500 yens, then you try convert to your own currency to see how expensive it is!
About the problem of between the old style horizontal and new style of vertical battery position, somebody said from F104 thread, since is LIPO battery the problem of oversteer is not so notable as like using NIMH, i think this is probably the reason of the most new cars is coming with vertical design.(Please make a comment about that, for me have a idea to choosing F1 chassis)

Nice to see the old F102. I used to have the Footwork FA13 Mugen Honda (F102) back in the day and sold it to upgrade to the F103RS. I regret selling it. I see you have the old yellow plastic damper. I still have both of my blue & yellow dampers that came with the kits.

Good question. That is a picture from the RC F1 GP series in Japan. From what I gather, that was one of the guys from the factory who ran the car.

Nice looking kit. Wouldn't mind having somewhere here to be able to race F1's or even dig out my old Tamiya Saber again, after a bit of a restore that is.
