We have at our club in Norway both x1 and TRF 101 drivers. Althought the x1 is nice and new, at least at our club the TRF 101 and 101W is far superior. The x1 is very nice,, but so far the TRF 101 has proven at least for the guys driving the F1 class to be better. Who know in the future.

a small video from early testings TRF 101 :www youtube.com/watch?v=cTzGhcuVH1U&spfreload=10

Default New carbon shaft

Carbon rear shaft and diff housing Part number 84380. Does anyone have any feedback regarding this in terms of more durability compared to the kit version. I want to buy this but want to be sure it's not going to brake as easily as the original.

tgis is the same part that is in the kit. Personally I like the steel one as the car is very stable with it, plus it's strong.

Not as a direct fit.
You have just 1 front upper mounting point, but for exotek you need 2.

If anyone is interested, I'm selling my barely used TRF101W with Carbon Suspension Set installed. Sorry for the hijack.

For TCS it is the Tamiya 1031/1032 combination mounted on the Tamiya foam rims. I have them in stock if you need them

There are front and rear relabeled Pit tires, which are the 571 and 572 tires (I think the tamiya numbers are 1031 and 1032). The other Tamiya tires are the old kit tires, and the optional tires, which all fit the rubber tire rim, and are all but unuseable on carpet. Just stick to the TCS label tire and you are golden.

Wow seems odd to run a soft front and hard rear...

Dont let the soft and hard labeling mislead you.

These tires work!
That is why Tamiya had them relabeled by Pit Shimizu.
We had THE Tamiya man himself racing with us in the UF1 and doing very well I might add and that is how we finally got some "racing" tires available for TCS racing.
These tires are the go to tire, whether you get the TCS branded tires or the 571/572 Pit Shim tires, same thing.

In my opinion I think hard relates more to the sidewall for the rear tire, this tire is not hard by any means and has proven itself.

The pit tires are rated by compound F1/R1 or F3/R3 and sidewall hardness soft and medium or medium hard.
There are 4 front and 4 rear tire choices.
TCS tires are the 571/572 combo mentined above.
I dont know if there is a difetence between the Front and Rear compunds but R1s feel softer than the F1 fronts
PS-0571 RACING SLICK TIRE, FRONT, SOFT, F1-S
PS-0572 RACING SLICK TIRE, REAR, MEDIUM HARD, R1-H
PS-0573 RACING SLICK TIRE, FRONT, MEDIUM, F1-M
PS-0574 RACING SLICK TIRE, FRONT, SOFT, F3-S
PS-0575 RACING SLICK TIRE, REAR, SOFT, R1
PS-0577 RACING SLICK TIRE, FRONT, MEDIUM, F3
PS-0578 RACING SLICK TIRE, REAR, NEDIUM, R3
PS-0579 RACING SLICK TIRE, REAR, SOFT, R3-S
