Default F1 Conversion kit from Yeah Racing

Yeah Racing is soon to release a new conversion kit - Item number TBC.
Looks like a link conversion with a F103 front end for the F104 (or am I totally lost?) - transform your F104 to a F1-09

Anyone with more info???

I'm not a big fan of Yeah Racing. So, I would be vary surprised if this kit does well against the others. But then again, a lot of it is based off the 103, which we all know is a proven design.

Iíve never used any Yeah Racing products so I canít really comment the quality, but a wide front end and a link rear works extremely well with the 3Racing F1-09.
Itís hard to tell from the pictures but it also looks like the wheelbase is shortened compared to the F104 Ė which probably means that itís designed for saddle packs or 1S Lipos.
As long as we donít have any better pics everything is speculations though.

I've used some 3Racing stuff on some of my TC's and they have proven quite durable, especially the alum parts.

Default 3Racing F1-09 challenger?



Link to more info>>

"This Yeah Racing Transformula Conversion Kit is designed by Mr. Hideo Kitazawa. He understands that most of the current Formula One cars are using T-bar system only. However, linkage system will perform better in bumpy circuit and more aggressive at cornering as it carries more speed at the corner and reduces roll shock to battery layout. The advantage of this conversion kit now is combining both T-bar and linkage system so racers can choose either system according to the track condition. Such marvelous functions are totally brand new in the RC market!

Moreover, the Kit is made by graphite and high quality aluminum. This makes the Kit much stronger and more durable and hence more suitable for the competition."

Im intersted in this kits as Kitazawa-san has been in F1 for a very long time. He was the #1 team driver for Cross many years ago and had a lot to do with the first Cross F1 chassis CF-01. The first Cross eventually could use a "T" bar along with the link suspension that it came with,if you bought a few parts.
This being from Yeah Racing is should be rather cheap ,just hope they dont screw something up when they start to sell it.
