Here is the kit supplied roll damper assembled and mounted on the car. I'm not really sure how to tune this. I'm hoping to get some tips from the 1/12 scale guys.





Here is the RM01/F104Vir2 carbon bulk head plate (item 54375) mounted on the car.

With that CF real bulkhead plate, could you do away with that aluminium bar?

Thanks for the pictures Vyger!
It is a nice car. Don't You know if the width of motor pod is the same as it is by older F104? I believe it should be when the same axle is used but You never know...

Any news when the kit should be out (worldwide)?

Good point. I've seen RM01 TRF version picture without that alu bar. CF bulk head plate should be strong enough...

I found this on Tamiya USA's website, click on the "Product Manual" pdf next to the "Hop-Up Options" button. I tried to link this directly to the pdf but it gave me a error.

I donít have the car with me, but your assumption makes sense regarding the width of the rear pod. I can measure it tonight when Iím home and post it.

I would think the kit should be in stores sort of soon, maybe within the next two or three weeks. But maybe later since the transit eclipse of Venus caused very low tides.

Good question, Iím not really sure at the moment. I think Iíll wait to try that at the track to see if thereís any difference in handling/performance. It would look much cleaner without the blue bar. IMO

I'm asking because I'm using SP V3 motor (and it fits old alu motor pod) but from the pictures it looks very tight with the new RM01 alu mount... so maybe I'll measure my motor and hopefully there will be space enough...

Try it at the track is the best way but how does it look You can see at this this picture...

I like the way it looks without the brace, but Iíll still wait to try it at the track.

I measured the width of the rear pods (both aluminum):
F104-V2 = 60mm
F104 = 60mm
They're both same width (ID) measured at the location the motor mounts to (diff side) to directly across, opposite side. I hope that makes sense.

By the way, the RM01 pictured above has the 380 size motor and aluminum motor adapter which is 5mm thick.

Hope this helps.

Here's some updated pics with the front end attached. It's a pretty typical F104 front end, except I've added the new Tamiya front adjustable metal uprights (#54357) and the titanium coated king pins(#54160)

I've also added the ESC and receiver, but I'm not going to try and take pics again with the lighting I have in my office. I'll try and post pics tomorrow.

Had the change to compare some different cars on the track tonight. One essentially standard F109 (with the Calandra sidesprings and 3R alu camber block), one hopped-up F109 (CF chassis parts, Exotec servo mount, Tamiya carbon reinforced F103 front), and a mk1 Corally (from before the pan car front-end). All ran on foam, and with a Tamiya 32T motor.

The mod F109 had the fastest laptime, but the cars were close enough to do battle. This confirms what we've seen the last race too: with this sort of power, there is no real advantage for the Corally over the 200mm cars, and our decision to allow the Corally cars was justified.

Is the Body the same '09 F1 cars or is it slightly revised?
