I'm waiting patiently for the lotus style wings to come out. The Cross/TRG Advance wing are definitely a failure! I'd take 3 or 4 of those Tamiya C 12 Sauber front wings if I could get my hands on them for a reasonable price.

My original M-bodies took a beating and the front wings are still in good shape.

If anyone is interested I ended up with one extra F103 R 15 anniv ed. That I will sell for $230.00 shipped in US , $245.00 shipped overseas . It is still factory shrink wrapped.

What's the best way to get paint off of the Tamiya wings? I tried to get tricky and it turned out like crap, so I need to get it off.

Brake fluid worked for me. Need to be patient though and don't leave it on too long.

Looks good, but is it a poser or a racer?
Just kidding wish my F103 looked that good.

I am dissapointed they are not just rereleasing the f103. Whenever a class REemerges, they release a new car and phase out the old. Dissapointing. And while the new car looks amazing in terms of scale appearance, the narrow track width and narrow tires really scare me in terms of performance.

It's an interesting design for a t-bar car with the battery down the middle. I'm wondering if we'll see 1:12 t-bar cars move towards this design?
