I didn't see the F1 bodies at Stormer Hobbies but I could have missed them.

Just sharing, a very high level view of racing. All are Tamiya F104.

+ YouTube Video

The fastest Tamiya F104s in Asia.

Thank you very, very much for your help and insights. I really appreciate it.

Very interesting!!!...I could assume there are a lot of Tamiya F1 cars in other countries, since F1 is so popular outside the U.S. But I am surprised at the response to the new IRL body. We have had a flood of requests from many foreign countries. It's great to talk to everybody from around the world. One of the nice things about the internet!

You are mistaken
That T-bar is exclusive to the WGP, as is the chassis





As far as I know, that part has not reached inventory stateside yet
I'm waiting on one as well

And do You have information if it will be available some day? Just wanted to try WGP lower deck and t-bar (don't wanna buy the whole kit which is in stock). I have found parts in HongKong but they are out of stock for months...

The other combos suck.
You may think you want the hard fronts and soft rears but the car will have no control/steering and you may even think you can run the hard fronts with the medium rears but you will have no control of either end.

If you now have W tires for front and rear, throw the W fronts into a bag and forget about em and go get some N fronts.

When the N fronts and the W rears are both new the car will be twitchy cuz the fresh fronts will overpower the fresh rears.
The hot ticket for me has always been to run well used fronts and relatively fresh rears but brand new rears will still be just a bit sticky and can get the car on edge, scrub the rears in for at least one run to take the edge off, run the fronts for a whole day to kill the edgyness.
Stiff black springs up front and everything very free and light, oil and spring in the rear combined with a perfectly fresh diff.

When you're done with the TCS race, go get yourself the awesome Pit Shimizu 571 and 572 combo and get ready to have a real race car!
Did you also use the insert that came with the tire??
I think I read somewhere before, in order to get more grip, do not use insert on the rear tire but I'm not sure both front and rear or just rear...

Thanks

Definitely run the inserts! No inserts, no good. Tried it.
I've always run the stock inserts and I've had a few good results.
Others I've raced with have tried changing inserts for different times of day or track temps or... but I haven't been beat by guys due to inserts. They win for other reasons.

Does anyone run Brushless "blinky" 21.5 / 48 pitch?

I'm converting my 104 Pro from brushed to brushless and I run 48 pitch, so I'm looking for a Spur / Pinion gearing to start with. Track is a 120' x 80' med-high grip outdoor asphalt. Warm Temps outside. I have no idea what FDR i'm looking for.

Any suggestions? I need some advice before I Race Sunday. Thanks.
