So the sheet is really good. Between the sheet that comes with the F2001 body and this sheet you can build and early or late version and have enough left over for another body. I'll get some pics up soon.

Hi All,

Here are 2 examples of F201 i have in my collection at the moment, both purchased locally here in New Zealand second hand, luckily the previous owners of each have pretty much never used them, Our Racing rules here in NewZealand mean that these really are only of use as shelf queens or exhibition purposes, each has minor things missing, one has electrics installed that i plan on removing, plan on restoring them to full authentic detail for both Ferrari Drivers at the time, which will involve some work but look forward to sharing the finished pics once completed. Also have 1 tuned version but this has had a fair bit of use by the previous owner , will put some pics up of this also once i have restored it a bit better...An interesting note is that neither were sold from the original retailers with the Sport tuned motor, both had untouched Silvercans, Have the original manuals plus a few spare parts. I read about the F201's on the Tamiya USA site and became fascinated by them and the story behind them so have hawked all our trading sites over here to get what i can, they seem a bit overly priced on Ebay, I paid no more than $150nzd for each example in the pics, still trying to get through all the posts on here and its great to see some other F201 enthusiasts exist

I finally found time to complete the car.
From 2.5mm cf I milled (by hand ) two LiPo braces:



Then it was like Lego, just assembling the braces and the body posts:



To secure the flat battery from jumping out its place I wanted to use a long body clip, but unfortunately there would be a collision with the battery plug:



I loved this idea for its simple yet effective function... Luckily I had some battery clamps from ReflexRacing laying around. These have to the job now:

WTCC - thanks, I'm looking for a US company that sells the tires your run.

Anyone know of a 3 peice motor mount similar to the one that comes with 3racing carbon chassis? I found a 3R chassis but it didn't come with the center bulkhead parts. Thanks

It would depend on how much you are selling it. There is really no other 4wd electric F1 market and I believe that the Tamiya F201 was the only one.

This was such an awesome car....I wish tamiya would re-release it with FRP chassis or carbon vs. plastic.

I haven't had an interest in F1 since it's gone back to pan car style.

True about it being awesome!! I picked up one on the cheap a few months ago after trying for years to find one. Right now, it is sitting in its original box assembled (by the previous owner), body not painted, and debating on putting a 13.5 or 10.5 in it.

It's great to see this thread revived with you guys I bought a used F201 a few years ago with the goal of making it a proper 2WD F1 machine (solve weight problems, custom chassis and getting rid of the huge slop), however the batteries didn't fit and other projects overcame it so now it's dissasembled in a box. It's great to see your work, looking at them might get that project back on the drawing board It's design is really great, the suspension is as close to a real F1 as 10th scale can get. Makes me wonder even more why they made it 4WD, because it would be the most realistic F1 car ever with 2WD. A really interesting car
