There is a pretty good following of F-1 guys up here we hope to have about 15-20 F-1s at each race and I will try to keep you all informed on the way the series is going. Thanks Bill
I wish I had deep pockets for that BIG event, sounds like hella fun.

Spotted on the Kyosho Japan website:



Length 414mm
Width 200mm
Overall height 86mm
Wheelbase 267mm
Tread (F / R) 170/155mm
Tire (F / R) Φ56mm × 30mm / Φ58mm × 45mm
Gear Ratio 5.23:1
All-up weight Approximately 1,100 g
Engine SIRIO 09


Going by the dimensions, and from what I can make out in the images, it looks to be Tamiya F103 / 3racing F109 sized, and may even fit the same wings / bodies / and wheels ?
So looks like there is a Nitro option coming soon?
(and yes I know this bit is the Electric section)

The question is. Will it ever see the light of day, here in the states?

Or anywhere outside of Japan?

You get more in the states than we do in the UK, hence why we keep having to buy from the States or Hong Kong

Even in Japan, this might be extremely rare. Kyosho these days doesn't seem to produce anything on mass....

Default ONE PIECE ALUMINUM MOTOR PODS

I'm sorta interested in a one peice aluminum motor pod for my F104. Question is, in terms of quality, are they worth it?
I'm mostly concerned about axle alignment and bending.

Does anyone have any experience with these.

The two that I know of are the Yeah Racing and the TuneUp R/C. I'm kinda leaning towards the Yeah one cause although it was my first choice, the Tuneup one looks to have motor clearance issues from looking at pics.

The pic below of the Tuneup pod shows that motor clearance towards the front seems tight under the damper plate mount even with the use of a small spur gear.

I just looked at the Tamiya website and they have all of those in stock, which means any LHS should be able to get them in like a week or less, unless you order them direct and pay full price. I know I have some HBR's new in the package, have to look and see what compounds I have

It should all be the same dimensions as the standard pod so you should be able to move the motor ok. Regarding twisting it should be better than a 4 piece pod

You need to change the front piece of the rear pod to the F104 type. The friction damper post is farther back on the F104.
