I got a topdeck and the full chassis. You want me to draw it and sent the file?

It is all special... especially the motor mount...




And here is the front left topdeck plate (one of five cfk parts of the topdeck):



If you pm me your mail address I can send it to you.

Just drove my f201 on a prepped track (Village Raceway) and it was an amazing experience. The 4wd system is a big help in braking and in the corners.

Default bargeboards, new halo, F104pro Spoon wing

It's an under-rated chassis but does have its short comings. Best way to get the most out of this chassis is to avoid using as many metal parts where unneeded, use a super light flat shorty pack lipo, brushless 380 motor, carbon chassis, rocker arm braces, and Hpi Fgx slicks.

A slightly overpowered motor gives it the right amount of speed and sense of being at the limit but the consequences of a crash are definitely painful.

Hi,

I will not sell my car in parts and don't have an extra carbon chassis.
If you cannot source a carbon chassis, contact me via PM with your email address. I will send you the chassis parts I drew.

The carbon fiber plate chassis also requires a separate aluminum motor mount, spur gear holder, and posts.

Default Working on another body

Felt like working on another body for my F201, with updated 2018 wings. Mercedes W09 on Tamiya pro body. Basic body and painting completed. Finishing up the decals and will work on barge boards soon..
