I guess I've got more of these, but I don't know for sure.

It's the Hot Bodies Ferrari (Corally F-type), but this body has been modified.
This body hasn't got a lot of downforce. So he made the rear wing and side-dams larger with some scrap lexan, to gain more downforce.
I've attached a couple of pictures where you can see the body a bit better.

You're welcome.

By the way, I've tried it a while back.
But I didn't liked it at all, because it's a low downforce body (though it looks realistic).

Tekin,

Thanks for the pictures, do you have any from the 2004 JMRCA 1/12 race? I believe the car uses Kawada M300RSX front end and pods, plus the new Twister 2 speed control.

Thanks again for the great pictures.

Default white springs

Hi all. Great pics.
Ive noticed the WHITE pod springs..
What are they? I have used the corally springs..but i want more choices,,the heavy springs tend to push the rear pod down past the main chassis..as we run 2mm ride height,,it drags around the track (the sparks look impressive, but not too good on handling).......any one else having this problem?
The fibre glass prototype is a treat..the chassis has a lot of flex..gonna stick a ice-cream stick on the deck to stiffen it. and the nerf bars work!
mike

Looks like a completely new car.
Kawada uses metric parts most of the time. Rear pod upper plate, motor mount, front suspension, bumper. That is a new chassis plate. See cut out between the front suspesion.

I thought the white springs were prototypes or they are old HPI springs.
Because the rear end design comes out of the old HPI Road Star and Super F1.
If you want to stiffen the car, Doup Powell (PRC) makes a conversion kit (for this conversion kit...), which is way more stiffer.

The bumper, front end, rear pod, damper tubes (on the last set of pictures) are made by Kawada.
This conversion kit is actually designed for that car and the L3/4.
On the stock (customer) version of the Hammer there are holes made in the radio tray for the Kawada damper tubes (in general they are shorter than others).

That chassis isn't new, Atsushi is always testing new things (as every team driver).
Just take a look at the pictures that I posted earlier. On some of them you can see clearly that there is some material removed between the battery slots to lighten the car.
