Hello
you can use a f104 carbon axle and a f104 aluminum diff instead , but it's more expensive of course. (then you can run at least)

Ok. Matt - drop me a note if you want to. I also have spare diff assembly. It's missing the diff rings. Probably won't be racing Tuesday night due to a school meeting, but you could always drop in to the State Titles

About to get my car on the track for the first time. Does anyone have a starting setup for low-medium grip carpet. The track is fairly small and technical. I'll be running the Tamiya/Pit tires.

I've heard that there will be a second run on the production of this car in november.
It's mentioned by Fred Medel (atleast i think that's his name) of tamiya usa.
That's good news for spare parts.

As we have a couple of races with a silvercan motor and yesterday i was trying to fit the silvercan in the car and to my surprise this motor doesn't fit without using a dremel or file on the motormount.
I've already ordered me a second motormount to be able to use the silvercan motor and still have a spare motormount

@Marklas,

I'm planning to do some testing with the side links, just need to find the time for it

I got my car on the track for a few shakedown runs this Saturday after letting it collect dust for the past 4 months. I used the kit setup on our small med grip carpet track just to see how it would handle.

I was pleasantly surprised how hooked up the car was the minute it hit the track. The rear end was very planted, a little to much because it was pushing in the sweeper at the end of the straight, but the car was amazingly stable through the rest of the track. I know it has been said before, but I could get on the throttle much earlier and harder than I ever could with my V2.

The next outing with the car will be our club race in two weeks. I need to drop the front ride height, it was at 6mm with the kit setup, and dial out the brakes in my ESC and then really give the car a proper test.

I found on mine that when I moved the link to the inside hole on the motor pod it helped mine hook up better on a low to med. grip asphalt track. Have not had a chance to try out carpet setups yet. still in the middle hole on the chassis.

I've tested all 3 settings on carpet using pits 572/571 and liked the outside link positions the most.

The inside link position gives the most traction but made the car push mid corner out.

The middle position I felt the steering was numb and would push going out of the corner.

The outside position gave most steering going in and out of corner.
I also tried middle on chassis outside on pod but lap times were faster with the links to the outside.

Ran my TRF101 for the first time yesterday and loved it. I picked up almost a full second a lap over my previous F1. This car gave me the confidence to go faster and just push it that much more.

I just have 1 question. Anyone know if the Tamiya McClaren body kit will fit on the TRF101?

The McLaren MP4-24 body ?


Some trimming of the front nose section to allow for the upper arms, and the rear side pod to clear the side links and spring perch.

We have 6 on order with Tamiya as soon as the next production run starts, 3 of these are spoken for already, and I am willing to order more if needed
