In Japan, Tamiya has a separate TCS class for the W's but is there option tires and TCS parts? I Have not seen them? Were is this leading up too?

Sell the F104?
Bring the F103 out of the box and mix it up with the F104?
Get a F104W and mix up using F103 tires?

I ran the race before last at TQ (F1 winter series) close to 15 or more cars. Only two F104Pro (me and Mark), the rest went back to the F103.

Anyone has info on this mystery?

Cheers, Marcos
All 3 cars state that they come with foam tires...Not sure what that means for TCS. If they brought back the old A's and B's, it would be game on.

Hey Mike can you post some setups that you use on carpet with your 104 kit?
