Do the bodys made for the F103rm fit the F201?
I too recently picked up a nicely used TUNE version of F201 with the Williams and Carbon Test body...only a few places can find new bodies made from Tamiya...ebay probably is the best place to get, but prepare to pay TOP $$$ for those cause they are discontinued. Your choice are the Ferrari 2K, Williams, the Carbon Test body...I think these are the only 3 were made by Tamiya especially for F201.
D-Drive's body might work for F201...I have both 103 and 201 and 201 is indeed different then the F103 bodies, so don't expect the F103 body is a direct fit onto F201 (or vise versa).
Rims and tires are easier to find...mostly Hong Kong site or Much Hobby over Canada. Or always EBAY.
Decal...try D-Drive. For me...I create my own using AI, if you can spend the time on the internet and collect alot of photos of your choice of F1 body, you can collect enough "image" and generate your own AI file and print them out yourself (in the right scale). Or of course you can buy from D-Drive...but they are $$$$.
I have the next 10-15 years to rebuild this car, so does my F103, and my Bruiser......
