One more thing. HPI has been dropped from the Builders Cup this year. They were all happy they came in 2nd at the first race but seem to have more important things this year to do so...
I have more F201 parts than Tamiya has in their warehouse. I'll hook him up...

Some carpets yes, some no. Not sure why that is. The best thing is to mount some 1/10th foam on the wheels with 3M "yeller" glue and go like stink on the lint track.

Anyone know where to get new F201 bodies and wings? Preferably in the U.S. but not a necessity.


Thanks,


doug

Marty might make a run sometime soon. http://www.mlpmotorsports.net
But until then try D-drive sports english.

Good luck. I may have to go fishing for some shells myself.

D-drive carries only F103 direct drive bodies and not any for the F201 (longer). Marty isn't ready to re-do the F201 bodies anytime soon, as far as I know.

Nothing at Tower, and eBay is hit or miss... I was hoping for a source that had something to choose from (Williams, Ferrari, etc.). Guess this will be harder than I thought.

The slcf1.com page is down. www.rcf1.com is in french and I cant make out a thing they are saying.
http://www.gadgetworks.biz/is in a state of flux. Looks like they are rebuilding the page. No products are listed anywhere.

Dang youve got me wondering now.

Does the Chevron shell fit the 201? Has any one tried Mcallister? Sometimes they have off the wall stuff.

OK all Mcallister had was this.

That wont work for me. Probably wont work for you either.

Does anyone know how long gadgetworks has been rebuilding? I'm new to the F201 so I hope this is just temporary as opposed to one of those kind of projects that got started and then abandoned by the people who ran it.
