Tower will probably have it for that... but i believe the conversion worked out to $169... so might be around 130-150$ maybe... can only hope... the body and tires will be sought after for sure...

I saw it for pre order at hobbylinkjapan.... The price converts to $214.91... It doesn't come with the bling, but they make up the price by including the rubber tires and an ESC....

And the Ferrari licensing....

rear grip, rear grip,oh for some rear grip.

got to go for my first run on the weekend, and while it was a lot of fun, the rear was never planted. it just turns itself inside out

i run the stock rear tires with the std t bar - i did try removing the spring, but found that with it on it seemed better but i could not get above half throttle. running formula tuned motor 25 pinion 93 spur.

would running b tires in the rear along with the softer t bar help.

would appreciate any all suggestions.

Make sure 0 toe or .5 toe in.
Did you use tire sauce?
Use Black springs in the front.
Make sure the T-Bar rear screw (pivot) 3/4 - 1 turn out.
If it still no rear grip, sauce the rear tires only.

HLJ just says December release

http://www.hlj.com/product/TAM58447


something tells me that this will be a HIGHly anticipated release...LOL

methinks that they should have released this one first... or at least a generic car with 2009 bodywork and wings

according to tower... the A' are the ones that come standard in the kit...

Damn, tried to hide the crinkles in the photo angle Stripes are those pinstripe deals. They do well in photos, not so good on track.

Sort of on-topic......pertinent for sure. The TCS rules on tamiyausa.com do not stipulate a minimum weight for F1. Was one enforced at the events?
