Default TRG F109

Anyone know a shop that might ship one of these cars to the U.S? I've checked all the usual Hong Kong shops and can't find one. Any ideas welcome.

http://www.rc-trg.com/trg109.html

the release date says 'june 18' - but not if its 2009 or 2010

but this page - http://www.rc-trg.com/dealers.html - is a list of all the dealers for TRG, maybe one of them can help you, plus it gives you a like to each shop's page

rc champ advisor is on there - they might be able to give you more info

I've been down most of the dealer list, all of them are in japanese language and don't translate well. I don't see anyone with kits, I'm hoping someone around this thread may know a shop selling these kits.

They have been racing that car in Japan since the summer if I am correct. Contact Rc Champ, they speak English and have excellent service.

Ver. II is out now (F109B) - does look very similar to last years model.
It looks nice - but a bit pricey though ... 38000 yen for the chassis parts

Does anyone know how this thing runs compared to an F103?

BTW, i've ordered a few things from that seller (jr-rc) in the past. Seems like a decent shop.

You might try this shop:

http://d-drivesportsenglish.com/

They basically sell all F1 stuff. maybe they can get the '109'. I have a feeling it will be lot less expensive than the guy on EBAY.

I've ordered a few things from him as well, with no issues.

These guys are really helpful by email, and folks at the track I raced say they've great service. I haven't ordered anything thru them, but my enquiries were always answered promptly

Default other kits

Since we're on the subject, does anyone know of any other kits that use 103 type hardware that are any good? Since the 103 is gone, there really isnt anything good that can run in the same class and be competiive.

The Corally is a de-tuned pan car, so don't bother mentioning that one

MLP Motorsports had some sick looking F1 cars, but I think the company is no longer.

I'd like to get something that runs the same gear as the 103, is 'legal' and you can actually 'tune' it like a pan car.

The TRG 109 looks like a winner. I especially like the link tubes vs. the crappy t-plate (my opinion).

I know there is a bunch of different F1 kits from Japan, but availability, not knowing anything about how they run, and non-English instructions leave a lot to ponder.

It needs F103 parts.

Keep us posted on how it goes together/runs, etc.
