Default Blue Aluminum Screw Kit for the Tamiya TRF101 - 66pcs

I purchased a few blue aluminum screws for my Tamiya TRF101 and ended up with a few extras. As such, I was able to make a few more kits for interested racers/enthusists. The screws are made from 7075 aircraft grade aluminum and are anodized blue (medium to dark blue). 6 speciality screws are made from stainless as aluminum was not available. Includes the 4 flat head screws for the front pivot holders as well as the M4x30 screws for the front wing/suspension block. I also included two M4x25 screws in aluminim if the lower block position is used. All are 2mm, 3mm or 4mm thread in round head or flat with 1.5mm, 2.0mm, or 3mm allen key. Much lighter than steel or even titanium. The following sizes are included with the kit:

3x6mm Screw Round 6
3x8mm Screw Round 6
3x10mm Screw Round 9
3x12mm Screw Round 4
3x16mm Screw Round 3
3x6mm Countersunk Screw Flat 5
3x8mm Countersunk Screw Flat 18
3x10mm Countersunk Screw Flat 1
3x20mm Countersunk Screw Flat 2
2x5 Screw Cap 6
2x6 Screw (stainless) Flat 4
4x25mm Countersunk Screw Flat 2
4x30mm Countersunk Screw (stainless) Flat 2

Total of 66 pieces. $29 shipped in the USA if interested. A few $s more for international shipping.

PM or email for details. I have 2-3 extra sets now and hope to have more in a month or so.

Your method is completely logical and just how I would do it.

Hopefully, there is an option part or method that we aren't aware of that allows us to achieve desired ride height with rubber tires that doesn't involve placing shims in no less than seven locations.

The 101 set the fast lap for the day at 15.1 but was later matched by Doc's V2 during happy hour

Check again in manual on mounting rear wing holder onto the carbon rear plate. There is two holes. Make sure you get the right one. Installed my wing with no problem.

Default build complete

Ready for shakedown:











The car ended up with 5mm with black springs and 4.5mm with silvers (front end built as per manual). Tires are PIT 571/575 on Tamiya wheels. Re-using my MP4-24 bodyset I had on my F104X1. Side pods had to be trimmed up a bit to clear the links, along with the front nose section to clear the CF front plate. Everything else lines up just fine.

job well done. I'm sure you will enjoy the new car a lot.

I've noticed your blue battery screws. Could you tell me what brand they are and where you got them. Much easier to use these by the looks of them then what the kit has.

thx mate - I plan on getting out to the track this week to test it out. My current main runner is an updated F1R; it would be a good comparo between the two.

The Exotek twist nuts comes in different colors - here are 2 examples.
black anodizing:


blue anodizing:

This is my first build in 20+ years and have no experience in F1.
The previous prebuilt and used kits I got, I eventually disposed because I knew I wanted to build something from scratch.

I am just wondering which set up would be better for indoor asphalt, medium to high temperature (Philippine tropical climate)... Battery forward or battery back?

I already know the answer is to try both set ups and see for myself... But I also don't really want to have to re-wire (re-solder) connections as much as possible.

Holy Toe Batman. I thought in F1 you post to have the toe set at 0?

I wish I lived in Cali so I could run here. The track looks like a lot of fun in F1.
