If there are four dimples marks, two on each side of the center line... correct ! The original '80's body used tiewraps to attach the wing to the wire wing mount.

Cuda - is this purple enough for 'ya ?

Yep Panda, that's a bit of purple.

I found a combo of 2 spacers that fit together to allow you to run "normal" spur gears.

If you're familiar with the aftermarket spacer that lets you run the standard spurs on the F103s and 104s, this is one part of the combo.
This spacer has too large of a center i.d. for the RM 01 axle since our spur rides directly on the axle instead of a hub/stud axle like the F1s.

The second spacer needed comes from the left side of the RM 01, the black plastic one that sits between the clamp on hub and the bearing. Or you can use the aluminum spacer from the F1 but will need to slice off what you need since this spacer is much longer than needed.

These 2 spacers together will do the trick.

I have simply where already times written the ball bearing of the original spur gear, pressed in a gear like you want to run. just extend the center "0.3mm"! to press it in.

If you check the set-up sheat inside the manual, you see 2 alu dampers mentioned as an option part.
My guess is that they will release also a carbon plate that's attached to the motormount and perhaps an alu stay to mount the carbon plate on it.
And probably an alu motormount too

Thanks for the link.
There is lot of interest in this car

I would wait for the correct RM-01 hop-up dampers.
The Center damper could be improved quite a bit, but the kit side damper works well as is.


They also show a spur gear bored out to 5/16" with a 5/16"x6mm spacer

The top spur is the standard Tamiya spur/bearing combo
The lower spur is the Kimbrough/Robinson type spur/spacer combo
The aluminum tube is the axle spacer used on the left side of the axle on an F1 to space between the hub and bearing, this is what I "sliced" a piece of to insert into the plastic spacer for the Kimbrough spur.
The pic of the single spur shows the 2 spacers combined if you look closely, aluminum spacer inside plastic then inserted into spur.
The RM01 has a smaller plastic spacer for the left side hub and doesn't need to be cut down as it is shorter already but not sure how you'll be able to get an extra one.

Someone like Avid, Acer or Boca should make a bearing for the spur gear conversion. I'm sure they would get some good sales out of just the F1 guys alone.

It's possible but it would have to have some pretty little balls.

NEWSFLASH!

After further review (in my best NFL voice), the bearing of choice is right there in our cars!
For Tamiya fans it's a 1060 and for the rest of you it's a 10mm x 6mm. It's the axle bearing on this car!
It takes only the tiniest bit of love with a body reamer to pop it into the spur (can almost force it in) as the difference is about .010" which is exactly 2 natural blonde pussy hairs.

YR4Dudedude gets credit for inspiring me to go check it out.
Rockstar this one is (Yoda voice).

1s battery, s9650, and booster ordered, chassis glued and drying in garage, and Rolex 24 is about to kick off. Good times

Also found a Wacoal decal sheet so I'll be representing hotness in lingerie
