Default body sets

I see Tamiya has 1 older Ferrari and 2 older Mclaren kits on F104W chassis. Piecing the body/wing, front wing, sticker set, and body instruction all together would have a total $70 - $80 msrp. How come Tamiya doesn't offer older F1 bodysets?

Class wise it doesnt matter as that track doesnt have a f1 class , but i still want to be able to put it on the track and keep upto maybe the 21.5t touring guys

cheers.

P.s. Rubber tyres but i dont know which ones.
You'd be better off with the F104X1 or a McLaren or Ferrari. The FRP chassis will be better than graphite. The basic cars won't need much, maybe the shock, and aluminum motor mount.

Does X1 come with foam or rubber tires? Tamiya offers reinforced rubber tires for F104, they should put them in this limited edition.

Just noticed for the 2010 champs chassis:

TWC Worlds used FRP upper and lower. Carpet. Low traction.
TCS USA used carbon. Asphalt. Medium traction.
Tamiya Asia Cup used carbon. Carpet. High traction.

How much difference is there in appearance between the McLaren and Ferrari body sets?

McLaren seems to have more substantial side pods / pieces but is that the only difference?

Is one better suited to a Red Bull paint scheme / look than the other?

Today F1 cars look ugly in my opinion, the cars from 90s looked the best. I hope Tamiya can re-release bodysets that were offered 10 - 15 years ago.

McLaren bodyset is better. I wish Tamiya had license with Red Bull Racing, they did have a TT01 with Red Bull Racing logo stickers http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=58355

My ride height is 5mm with Tamiya rubber tires. Used the rear bearing holder #2 and 0.5mm upper shim on the steering block.
