From what I've heard, Tamiya is goingto release a F1 kit with a lexan body and a hard plastic body but don't have any other info on that.

If you really want F-1 bodies, get the Hot Bodies F1 bodies. They might not be the best but they do make it.

Bodies is no problem! Protoform make a Nice Porsche GT1 shell which I use on mine, tyres are the real issue as the Tamiya rubber is pants!

Getting hold of the larger wheels so that you can use Pro10 foam is the way to go but unless Tamiya or a 3rd party start making stuff for it, its going to get harder and harder to keep it running.

as for tires, there's a couple of company that makes the F-1 tires and i don't remember the company but they made a rubber tire like the real ones with the groove.

see if you can get a hold of one of those Hot Bodies F-1 bodies.
