Good luck! My TRG was phenomenal on foam. Rubber will take a little bit to tweaking.

I love eye candy as much as the next guy, but I quickly bolted on a Tamiya front end to preserve the bits on carpet.

Hope you bring in the line. Chasing bits down in Japan/China/Aus became a bit of a hassle.

I at least want the front upper mounts to work on a F104 so I can use turnbuckles for the upper arm too

Just got done with the maiden voyage. This car is amazing. Mid to high 11 second laps when other fast cars are low 12's/maybe high 11's.


The car does not chatter or squeal tires at all. Most f1's I have seen do both.

Default 2012 Carpet Nationals

Well, it was a very successful outing- sort of.

After setting the fastest F1 lap of the weekend and qualifying on pole, the main was a disaster.

The combination of my nerves, lack of experience racing these cars, and a less than perfect set-up got to me.

Initially I struggled with the car having a massive tweak and pulling to the left really bad. Once I got this settled, the car was good, but it felt too hooked up. With the compressed schedule and single A-main, I decided to not change much since it was "good enough" to set TQ.

With a little more time and R&D we should be able to remove some grip off of the rear end of the car and get it to rotate a bit better. This should be good for about 1-2 tenths on a track like the nats track.

Much credit and congrats to Tony Phalen. His F104X1 was MO-NEY all weekend long. Hopefully we can race again soon in the future. I had a blast racing F1's, everyone was a true gentleman while on the track

That rear wing you had was mega huge, you should sell that space .

We have just become a distributor for TRG and ZEN F1 products.

Is there anything you guys would like seeing in the USA?

Right now we are planning on bringing in mostly F104 related items. We also plan in bringing in the TRG111 and the necessary spares to keep you guys rolling.

At the moment, we are just trying to see if we can get access to the F104 width car. If not, we will make the conversion ourselves to make them narrow.

The TRG111 will come without bearings, electronics and diff. Street price should be right around 340.00-350.00 USD.

If you are interested in a car, you can contact me via PM so we can put you on a wait list for the car.

MDawson. I can do that for sure.

Since there are not many of you guys with the 09, contact us at the store so we can do a special order for you.

Ok, we will take note.

We do ship to Europe all the time, so it should make it easier to get parts for you than in Japan.

Donīt know whatīs the problem with US orders from Europe but ALL end at customhouse and have to pay a lot of custom taxes...

I think TRG has a German distributor anyway...
