Tokyo Hobby Show starts today. Look forward to seeing more pics! There is also a new Pro kit with a lightweight body with a Nov release - 0.7mm instead of 1mm.

What's the advantage of a "lightweight body" over the current one?

Regardless, these puppies look like they'll be heading my way as soon as they're released:
Looks like Christmas is taken care of

It's lighter so all the usual benefits like better acceleration, cornering and lower CG. Although the difference would be so small, I doubt I could ever tell the difference...

I saw the link on Facebook. If you already have the F104 Pro, just wait for the body set & the new set of wheels & rubber tires for the F60. I want to try out those wheels & tires for my new project with an old Group C Chassis, with an ADVAN Courage LC70 Mugen body set.

Make me crazy! This car is a real MUST HAVE! Even 2.. 1 to build, 1 to save in the box...











Price is included also.... 19.470 Yen. That's about 222 US Dollar. Bring it on!!!

There was also a nice black F104 Pro. But that price is stated 26.040 Yen. That's MUCH more then where we buy the F104 Pro for now. So maybe de F60 will be cheaper as well:

Hi everyone. We understand some people have been having problems getting their F104's to stay with the F103's on the track. We believe this is largely due to the narrower rear tires which is 10mm narrower. We have found that running the wider F103 rear tires makes quite a difference. But it makes the rear end much wider than the front.

So we have developed a set of option front axles for the F104 (and F103). This will allow you to widen the front end on the F104. So you will have the same width front and rear if you choose to run F103 rear tires. They will be machined from titanium for super light weight and strength. We estimate the price to be approximately $15 a pair and should be ready in the next few weeks.

Happy racing!
