The Toyota TS020 uses all the parts that the F103 also has(except chassiplate as this one is wider).
Only different part is the linked front suspension but this was/is also used by some of us on a F103 chassis.
The Nissan is more like the F102 chassis type but then with a bathtub chassis
They should bring out all the "old" group C bodies out again (at the same time)to run in the WGT class.
This will be a really nice site for sore eyes

Also note Nissan RC91P and Toyota TS020, both were previous pan car style chassis.

I agree

Jaguar XJR12
Sauber Mercedes C8
Nissan RC91
Mazda 787

Think there is one more?

Often wondered why the Porsche 956/962 was never done ?

Also not forgetting, and on same chassis, the Ferrari F40

No, but it was run in the first season of the revived GT1 series, although the kit version was the road version.

There was also the IMSA Nissan 300ZX, on both this chassis and the wide TA-01 chassis
(still have the unpainted shell but lost the rear wing and decals)

Hey Guys,

I recently got a F104 Pro black edition with a bunch of hop ups and tested it for the first time yesterday. It's my first experience handling a high-performance RC and the car handled beautifully and I'm planning to test a couple of setups and upgrade ideas. However, for past few weeks reading through this forum, the X1 seems to be getting tons of great feedbacks.

My question is: Can a 104 pro still compete with an X1 or will the x1 just blow it out of the water?

Is it neccessary to get the X1 or upgrade the existing pro?

Thanks!

I upgraded to the X1 and mine isn't even a Pro but an F60 standard kit so doing a Pro would get you dialed.

I run the Pro Black Edition. Just add weights to the right places to get balance depending on track conditions. I don't think an X1 would necessarily be faster (and side damper looks ugly sticking out of the body). Loosen upper deck screws if you want chassis flex. Good luck, see you at the track.

I suggest you get the steel rear axle. World of difference for rubber on asphalt in our track.
