Does some one have pics of a tamiya body on the Serpent F110?

Though similar, they are different bodies. The one you posted for identification is an HRT F1 replica body that I can't remember the name of and the Tech one is pretty similar and I like it better actually. Smoother flow to it which makes it sleek.

I knew I had seen it! The body you posted is the Chevron Models F-110 Body for Tamiya F103 & Tamiya F104 which I believe is out of production.

A small group of us have been running them at our club since late last year and they are much more inexpensive than the TCS tires. (However, the TCS rear tires are still slightly better than the Yokomo soft rears.) They are just about same exact mold/tire diameter as the Pit/TCS tires.

The Yokomo soft fronts have so much front bite and I have all the steering I will ever need (even with black front springs). I'm running an old set still (10+ race days) for the fronts, no sauce. Out of the package, they definitely need to be scrubbed in though.
what rim do you run them with?

Thank you for your answer, I assume you're right!

Unfortunately, it seems both are out of production, the Chevron is on their website anymore and the Tech is out of stock everywhere...

So for realistic F1 bodies, I'll continue whith Tamiya and Speed Passion one

Best regards,

We have been using the F104 foam wheels and will work on Exotek wheels too. Just about same exact dimensions as the Pit/TCS tires.

Note the Yok soft rears have 5mm thick inserts, compared to the 4mm thick inserts of the TCS tires. I like using the 4mm insert for asphalt.

I saw some nice setup guide for F1 cars somewhere, but cannot find it anymore. Does anyone know?

I have run 574/578 this weekend when temps in shade reached 35 and car was super stable, but also a bit slow in turns compared to 573/575 combo I run in colder conditions. I am looking for more front grip from F104 front on F109 car. What should be done first, what next and so on?

The McLaren and the F2012 work also fine on this chassis

I'm hunting for the front tires on the Amain site, do you have a part number?

EDIT: I found it on Yokomo's site - YF-36FS

http://www.teamyokomo.com/partslist/...s/yrf_001.html


- Now does anyone know if Amain sells F1 rims! haha

I think "narrow" wheels are what you want. I haven't tried them but they look similar to the F104 foam wheels.
