No, but I heard they're not as good as the tamiya bodies.

Default Audi R8R Body set for sale

Guys I wont be using this body set for our Le Mans races (sticking with my C) I'm selling it for $85.00 (brand new in original box, what I paid for it). Will consider trading it for an F1 F103 body set.

PM if interested...





Marcos.

That car has a brushless motor installed. What's the weight of the battery? Our 3200 Carbon Series packs weigh about 200g, and the bigger brick style packs weigh about 300g.

Dig that first shot, the F60 on rubber and the 103 Renault/Tamiya on foam are my 2 rides front and center.

The 104 F60 on rubber couldn't even catch a cold let alone keep up with the foam cars, and Mike's F10 on foam was a bullet all day.
The 104 on rubber did handle very well though, just was a second a lap too slow.

Moral to the story, wanna go really fast on carpet? Better stick to your best car and run it on foams.
Next time for sure!
