Since you "are" Tamiya USA, any idea when it lands to Europe as well?!

<--- used to own and cherish an FF01, nowadays donated to my beloved nephew who continues the tradition!

The gearing options are pretty varied. You can adjust pinion and spur to the geearing you need. Let me assure you, big pions fit within the gear cover.

Rtype C. Build your own car

The weight balance of the car is what it should be for a FF car.

Off the bat, I would recommend people get the Aluminum diff joint and universals for the car. If you want, the aluminum suspension mounts would be good too. From there the sway bar set coming should be fun to try.
Whoa, I thought the official release date is 6/25/10? Did the release date get pushed down?

No. You need 53500, 54076 and 54077 (alu) or 54078 (steel).

Just ran my FF01 Special edition with a 3400 lipo pack and a black motor... I think I'll be ok for a while ... it runs great! So until I see how it compares on the track against the FF03, I think I'll be holding off on a new purchase... I'm waiting for the Thunder Tiger SB5 and the Venom VMX450... so my "future money" is tied up anyway...

A UK shop (Models In Motion) is listing the FF03 Civic kit for 168.

I know FF03 will be faster and more refined than the front drive m03s & m05s but will it really be that much of a different driving experience or just the same thing but a little larger??
I guess those who have FF01s-02s & mini coopers will know about this.
