They make a replacement wing set for the 2012 Ferrari body that is black plastic instead of white. Pretty sure paint will flake, and my RIT experiment resulting in a grey wing.

Wouldn't vinyl be a better choice? or you could buy the black wingset.

According to Tamiya USA:
•Requires D : wheels, tires, body set, motor, esc

I find it strange that this car is to be released hopefully in a week. However I inquired at my LHS about the car; they know nothing of it. It is not listed on any of their distributors. I have also noted that Towers which is one of the distributors has not listed it as "just announced".

I admit that I do not compete on the highest levels; nor am I a top qualifier. However based on the research I have done by the time I buy a V2 kit and at a couple of upgrades that are recommended, I am either at or near the cost of the TRF101.

Hey I remember you, I was the Austin F1 winner with the Brawn GP car. Hope you get your TRF101 in time for texas EOS rd.2 at my home track. I expect a huge F1 class at this race. We had 17 F1 cars racing last weekend and it was 95% locals. I am hoping the EOS will pull some of the Austin and Houston
F1 crowd to our track.

Since everyone is waiting for the TRF101 to come out I scored a good deal on a F104V2. I figure it will suit my needs and if the TRF101 is that much better it looks like I could buy the chassis and front end to upgrade my V2 down the road.

I run the Texaseos series also but opt to not run F1 since I run UF1Houston. I may change my mind for the upcoming mikes race and drop VTA or USGT. I also preordered with speedtech for the TRF101 but currently running a SP1.
