I too recently picked up a nicely used TUNE version of F201 with the Williams and Carbon Test body...only a few places can find new bodies made from Tamiya...ebay probably is the best place to get, but prepare to pay TOP $$$ for those cause they are discontinued. Your choice are the Ferrari 2K, Williams, the Carbon Test body...I think these are the only 3 were made by Tamiya especially for F201.

D-Drive's body might work for F201...I have both 103 and 201 and 201 is indeed different then the F103 bodies, so don't expect the F103 body is a direct fit onto F201 (or vise versa).

Rims and tires are easier to find...mostly Hong Kong site or Much Hobby over Canada. Or always EBAY.

Decal...try D-Drive. For me...I create my own using AI, if you can spend the time on the internet and collect alot of photos of your choice of F1 body, you can collect enough "image" and generate your own AI file and print them out yourself (in the right scale). Or of course you can buy from D-Drive...but they are $$$$.

I have the next 10-15 years to rebuild this car, so does my F103, and my Bruiser......

The ones at DDrive do they fit the F201 or just the F103?

But thanks for the site

D-Drive doesn't sell much of anything for the F201, unfortunately.

Apex is right there arent many shells out there for the F201 since it hasnt been produced in a while. Locally some of the guys are running the same tires and wheels that we run in VTA.

E-mail d-drivesports english and ask them if they have anything for the F201. They are real good to point you in the right direction if they dont have what you need.

If that doesnt work get on the forum at www.mlpmotorsports.net and beg Marty Petersen to pull you one or three. I know he is able and the shell looks nice even if its not a Tamiya mold. He has a nice history of mods and hop ups for the Tamiya F201. You should find some cool pics of his work while you are on his site.

I don't have any spare bodies, but I have a GIANT collection of new parts (enough to build 3-4 cars), as well as a complete "tuned" chassis/roller. If anyone is looking for a large quantity of F201 parts that are no longer produced, drop me a note. Not splitting it up, just want the big box out of my shop. The whole package is going soon.
