Yes. I may very well be. It's the same brand new pro kit you can get anywhere. Except it's assembled. I bought the kit and never ran it. Then changed my mind about the class.

If the buyer prefers to have a brand new unassembled kit. I can take it back apart and provide one big parts bag.

Timmig - that's why I am including a brand new never used brushless ESC and motor. And a set of used B3's.

trust me I'm still losing out some $$$ at $200 shipped.

Default WTCC Chevy Cruze build

I had a Clio when they first came out and when they announced the FF-03 I just had to get one.

It started as a Pro but I have upgraded almost everything.

This was meant to be a show car but got out of control.

The first race is tomorrow night so i'll soon see how long the diff lasts on a SP V3 13.5 brushless setup.

regards,

Damunn.

At some tracks I recall in the past, there were drivers didn't like the idea of running touring cars with a mixture of 4wd and fwd or rwd. I wish TCS will create a new class for FWD cars like they did in the mid 90s.

I am noticing the Tamiya kits are more expensive before. Even the TT01E which includes the LED light unit are around $150 average price. I guess it's US dollar currency loss in value causing the price climb. Most of our TA05 V2, TB03, FF03, and even F104 are all close to $200. For most of the shoppers who are beginners, they're overpriced and not equipped with an ESC. Even TT01s are hard to sell as well.

Looks great! Now let's hope Tamiya make a real Cruze body for the FF03!

let's hope they come out with a trf version so it makes more economical sense for us, esp. with the strong yen to dollar exchange

Harder material are stronger and will most likely have a better chance surviving when you crash but can compromise weaker materials since it flexes less. Driving well will give you better lap times.

There might not be a TRF version of FF03 because it's not 4WD so the team drivers can't use it to compete at national or world event.

By the way, I hope the PIAA or Jaccs decal set is still available for this body below:

all the piaa ones were bought out few months ago when accord was announced.

there is a guy on tamiyaclub trying to remake the piaa stickers. but the jaccs he said he cant do because of the florcent colors.

Cool non - FWD bodies!

FYI,
I just tried an old Tamiya Skyline body on my FF03 and it fits perfect and so does the Altezza body! You don't even have to trim the bumper!
