Great work Mark!

You can see Mark's photos, and a second Denmark racers build photos, here.

Looks like the Scandinavians have a head start on the rest of us

Next weekend (23 June) is Round 2 of the Victorian Cup Series in Australia and one TRF101 has been entered. We hope to bring you photos of the car on the track.

I'm intrested in buying the TRF101 but i need to be sure if the width between the motor mounts is wider then the ver.II motor mounts. Is it possible to do a measuring of that width?
It's because i'm using a speedpassion 21.5T motor and we all know that the wire connections on the motor are at the end of the motor instead of on top with soldering tabs. Meaning not much space left between the wires and the left motor mount.

5.8cm on the TRF101
5.2cm on my F104 Pro v1

The TRF101 motor mount is made for brushless. A slivercan does not fit. You will need some 2mm spacers.

Where in Hong Kong did you get your TRF101?
Complete details of name of store, address, and any other useful information to help me get myself a kit as soon as possible.
Thank you.

Updated the gallery
https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...4846218&type=3

This is an awesome car. Built quality is TRF when it is the best. No plastic just carbon and alu. Lots of more pieces to build than the F104.

Will the new front axle really be a step forward in comparison to the F104v2 front axle? I drove a F113 today and its front axle works extremely good. Of course this car is more like a 200mm GT car with F1 body...

But when the F113 was on rails in fast bumpy asphalt corners, my v2 was bouncing a lot. So how will the TRF101 behave in such conditions?

In one of the Facebook pictures, I saw a blue anodized motor spacer. Does that come in the kit, or is it available separately? If not in the kit, where can I get one?

I race on small track and most everyone runs silvercans.
