Hey Steve, Let us know if you can find out if there will be an "-R" or "TRF" version, or are we looking at having to by a base kit and then tons of hop-ups. Need to get the budget ready early.......

The three Le Mans kits were the Mercedes C11, Mazda 787B, and the Jaguar XJR-8, both Silk Cut colors (European Group C), and Castrol (US IMSA Spec). For "sedan"cars, they did the Nissan 300ZX IMSA GTO class car, Ferrari F40, and original Honda / Acura NSX.

They were all the same chassis but some kits had different color chassis / frame parts like black, red, or green.
Thanks Kev for the info. I got the impression that Tamiya is reviving pancar after I saw the pic. I'm not really a collector so I'll most likely have to skip this one.

These kits were actually tub cars. They use a plastic tub like the TA01 - TA04 with the suspension bolted off of them. The actual Tamiya pancar was the F103LM version. This was basically the F103 F1 chassis. They made a Hop-up carbon chassis that had a wider platform. The F103LM kits were in three versions. Porsche 911 GT-1 "Mobil-1", the Toyota TS020, and the Audi R8 all circa 1998.

Extra mayo can be bad for the heart. My doctor told me so.

Kevin to only car that came with the wider chassis was the Audi and the F103LM TRF. The Porsche and the Toyota came with a plastic tray to mount electrics in
