Do we know all the differences?
right side motor pod and bottom plate but not the left side pod plate?

longer rear axle?

is the rear 190mm? front 190mm?

include carbon reinforced side links?

include the alum side spring holders?

TRF101 is a proper to scale narrow 180mm car
Note the lower front arm is same from F-104 180mm

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.
Great photos, they completely tell the story - front and rear.

I wonder if it's stronger (or the same) at the "base ball" than it's V2 predecessor?

To this date, that's my only complaint of the now "old" linked F104 V2

Cheers!

yes it looks the same but may be a new part #, probably not of course

didn't someone post here the the rear pods are farther apart, how is the rear the same width when the pods are farther apart?

just wondering about all the differences

Does anyone have the ability to scan the manual and post it or send it to me?

Thank you

has there been a set-up sheet posted as yet?

I had a quick look yesterday but didn't see one yet. I hope to have my car be the end of the week, so if no manual is posted can post one on the weekend.

They must have lasted 5 minutes.
I can't find them anywhere but on ebay for $400+.

RcMart has raised their price since then. It is now $269.

Looks like the diff sits much closer to the motor mount. Must be how the pod is wider but the width is still 180mm.
