The associateds are a good price and easy to get parts. I run a vbc...but a little harder to find parts. Tons of kits out there...could just start new...learn car by building...you’ll have to take it apart anyhow to know it.

Those X-rays have been for sale overpriced forever!! I've got a very nice VBC if you'd like it---pictured in this thread. $250 RTR--I"ve decided to go with a different car. It's in excellent condition

Agreed, used clean F6's can be had at a fair price. Lot's of factory and aftermarket parts support too as well as Xray gear diff will fit also.

I thought he was already diggin the Roche Coach like someone else I know.
But on that note, I will be shakin down my TRF103 this weekend in an effort to replace my worn, bent and outdated 2015 XRAY X1.
At least it resembles a slightly newer 2016 XRAY X1 but with the extra option of being able to use a T plate rear which I'm pretty familiar with as well as the side link pivot ball rear and a slightly adjustable wheelbase.
Get yer popcorn.
Oh yeh, a bunch of em were gettin it done at the Tamiya TCS Finals last weekend, racers had nothin but praise for the TRF103 as compared to their previous variety of Tamiya rides.
However, besides Rodzilla crushin us with his TRF103, 2nd place Matt Allen decided to try F1 this year and also ran away from us mere mortals but was using the tried and true 'cuda special F60 kit with fiberglass chassis and X1 conversion.
He had his workin great while for some strange reason, still not known why, mine lagged a bit for the first time ever.
Matt is also an incredible driver, he smoked the Premier GT1 13.5 Class full of past Champions from all divisions and did it by easily winning the first 2 of 3 A mains.
He's goin to Japan for Worlds and tattoos
# time to update since Tamiya USA track is now just a very fond memory. RIP.

Is there an easier way to glue tires onto Tamiya wheels? Especially the inside wall. Any tip to share?

Use a glue tube bottle with a thin nozzel. Its a worthy investment and take your time, little by little around the tire

Can't get all the hippest F1 tires in pre-glued form but there are a bunch that are pre-glued that are very good.
But you already knew that if you run F1 and aren't limited to a spec tire.

First run with the TRF103 today was on carpet, yup, that's where we ran.
Threw on some 74/75 Pits that were workin on my XRAY, dropped the 103 down and was not far off my XRAY times with the kit setup, only adjustment was ride height.
Can this be a carpet car?
Maybe not too bad?
Note that my XRAY is not the super dialed aluminum chassis carpet shredder of the serious munchers but it goes pretty good, so does the 103 comparatively speaking
