Side pods were trimmed and all set to match the custom monocoque chassis.

Can't waiiiiit!!!

My chassis is on the way to be done; I stayed with the original design and don't included the bottom side pods because of handling characteristics (as we don't have any feedback, I prefered to stay "classic").

Cheers,

A lot of the parts are exactly the same as the SP-1, minus the unique pod mount and dual shocks.

Smile Tamiya TRF101W

Hey guys, I recently got my paws on one of the new Tamiya TRF101w’s. I’m sorry the images aren’t better. I snapped these on the fly. The car looks pretty cool car so far. I’m wondering if Tamiya will eventually release the standard width 104 front end in this new carbon fiber configuration. Is it wide? Yes, but without a ruler I’m not quite sure how this measures up, other than yes it’s wider than the standard F104 front end.

The chassis thickness is thinner than the 101, so the rear motor plate has been shaved down to compensate the difference where the rear link is attached. The damper plate looks as advertised with a minor change shifting the damper further towards the rear. The remainder of the rear pod looks to be the same as the 101 version.

The upper deck offers a couple of mounting locations to secure it to the chassis. This should allow for more chassis tuning depending on your tracks conditions.

At the front of the car is the major change. Tamiya has stepped away from its tried and true lower beam suspension. Now there’s the aluminum center mount with two carbon fiber lower A-arms extending outwards. The rear of the lower A-arms are secured to a new aluminum servo mount. The front springs are captured between the top of the adjustable metal upright and the upper A-arm. As far as ride height adjustment goes that’s to be determined but it looks promising.

Enjoy the pics.

Shouldn't be difficult to make. All they have done is take Shimizu rain tyres and mounted them on top of foam tyres, with two tyres mounted on each rear wheel. Get some foam F104 tyres and true them down to fit the wet tyres over them.

From the looks of that TRF101W front end, your ride height adjustment will be limited if the spring is between the upper arm and the upright. Unless you can shim the entire upper arm away from the aluminum.

But the kingpin looks like it can take the spring below the lower arm. If that's possible, then you can have more room between the upper and lower arms to position the upright for height adjustment.
