In my search for more front grip, I checked the Tamiya foam tires type A & B. But the package and dealer informations confuse me!

The package says:

Type A says front hard and rear soft,
Type B says front soft and rear hard.

Dealer information on B fronts is that they are harder than the box tires.

So if I put the B in front and the A in the rear I have the softest foams on my car?

What else would you do to your setup to increase steering on a V2pro ( I was pretty happy with rear, just need more steering in, middle and out of the corner; I used A foams in front and rear).

Right now i'm also finishing my sauber C31 F1 body, just need to get some plain red decals from my brother to finalize my front bumper and the car is ready for some pictures.
I've used the new tamiya 2012 body set, the car looks fantastic.

Default F104 GT Anyone?

Right around the same time I spoke with Sean (owner of TQ Racing) about getting VTA started I also asked him about F104 GT after seeing these bodies at the shop. At the time he still had a few in stock. Who's down to race them? I'm sure Sean will restock these bodies made by ABC. Believe it or not they're really inexpensive too.

Let's race them guys.

ABC Hobby USA part# 66054
Response GT430 / Body Set for Tamiya F104 $21.99



ABC Hobby USA part# 66051
Response GT-1 / Body Set for Tamiya F104 $21.99


ABC Hobby USA part# 69255
Wide Bumper For Response GT - F104 $8.99

Just got my two VF1 bodies in the mail. Look amazing! Super fast shipping.
Gotta get these painted to show the locals here in the PNW how cool VF1 would be!

Enjoy them Tommy... BTW does the 911t refer to a Porsche?


As far as 84 bucks for a body goes..how much of that is shipping? Shipping to and from Europe is fairly expensive. I cringe when I quote some of the high costs of overseas shipping to customers.

Manny,
I'll have to double check. If I recall correctly, it was about $42 for the body and about $42 for shipping, but my mind seems to be slipping a bit.

Did that include the wing? When I was looking at buying one I realised the wing was separate from the body which added another 14 Euros. They've also now released a diffuser for it as well but no idea how much that costs

So they're selling all the pieces a la cart? I would appreciate a complete body then maybe a selection of upgrade or optional parts.
