If you look at the included parts list on the box or so there is mentioned that the chassis is a "special part" aswell as the rear axle spacer.
It's an alumlinium one and also marked as a "special part"
The chassis plate is a must have item for being able to use the full height of the tires.
I'll keep my eyes open to get that chassis plate

Rear axle spacer
I believe this is the new spur gear adaptor to run non Tamiya gears

It should have been written down by me as rear shaft spacer, therefor i think they mean the spacer that's on the left side of the motor mount.
The one between the bearing and the wheel stopper.

The three special items listed on the front of the box are: chassis, left hub spacer, and black wheels. No spur gear adapter so I had to do the tape trick.

Finished the build last night and brought it into work today to mill the front arms!

Tamiya spur gear adaptor for rm-01 has been available for about 2-3 weeks now. Item number 54459. I imagine that it is identical to the one that is for the F104 too that has been around for quite a while.

I don't think the diff outdrives fit the RM-01 rear shaft, i think they included that set for only the spur.
And the RM-01 wheels don't fit the plastic diff outdrives.

Just a confirmation, I have a F104 and the RM-01 and the parts are different. I don't have an F104 v2, maybe it is the same.

You can run the same gears on both cars
Only bushing/bearing size which the spur gear rides on is different

RM-01
Spur gear with bearing/bushing, mounts directly on the 6mm axle



All current & nearly every Tamiya F1 ever
Spur gear with bearing/bushing, mounts on diff-hub which slides over 6mm axle

I just finished building mine. Any suggestions on gear ratio for 17.5 & 13.5?

Any Immediate necessary Hop-Ups?

Thanks
