Sounds to me like he is running outside.. 64p is delicate, one tiny pebble and you chew the gear right up.

You can do with the Tamiya 64p as well.. those use std 64p pinions as well. But you only get the choice of 93t and 107t I think.

DucatiGary, it should be showing up in early November. Some Online stores will have it in stock early, but they'll jack up the price. I would wait awhile when RCmart gets it, and you'll save yourself some money.

Is there a date the F103R will be out? And is it going to be worth it in terms of option parts, or is it mostly bling stuff? I'm looking for a car to race TCS with, and the RM looks fine, but I don't know if I'll wind up spending $300 to make it race ready...

its not carbon fibre, just CF look

i went to fit the TRG rear diffuser this evening, went to their site to see how its mounted (you have to drill holes, cut it etc) and found that body.

its the same carbon print as the diffuser but i think they will sell well, i want one.

edit its a TRG chassis which is the same as the tamiya F103

The only F1 kit Tamiya sold with a carbon fiber printed body was the F201. It was a Ferarri body set, one clear the other carbon.

That body looks very cool. I'm going to have to pic up one of those now. Thanks Gary LOL

It looks like the TRG McLaren MP4/7 body I just got from them, only carbon. I see a new body idea....picturing it...HMMMM

Must get new body...need new body...must buy new body... Damn voices...Do you guys hear that too?
