It arrived in August and gone before December.
I dont think there will be a new platform, the 104 is only a couple of years old, typical Tamiya product cycle is 3-4 years
104WGP is the wide car. What would be really cool is if they brought back the 103 rubber tires and let the W cars run in TCS

A little birdie said something to that effect, 2 F1 classes but nothing about tires for the W car. Hmmmm.
Just sayin.

X1 was a limited edition from the get go. Not surprising.

Yip, if it is limited it's available for a limted period too

They will probably bring out an updated PRO that will include the new X1 parts....but with the ali parts in Blue instead of that limited colour.

Me can dig it
Still driving the F103 on foams.
Even in the Dutch Tamiya Challenge.
We only use rubber when it is raining or on a very dusty or low grip track.
