Hi Guys, Been a while since I posted, But I have decided to get rid of my TRF101 and go down the touring car route instead.

If anybody wants a TRF101 chassis, give me a shout. It's never been run, But has been built. Comes with an unpainted Mclaren BodyShell and wings, F2012 Wings set, a couple of sets of wheels, and loads of spare screws etc.

Cheers!

Who said the TRF101 isn't a great F1 car. It won the TCS race @ Middle River Hobbies on 1/19/2014. Had fast lap and won by 2 laps. Ok OK, Mike Gee probably could have done the same with any other Tamiya F1 car.

The last 4 races i drove my TRF101 to a victory
Each race i set the fastest laptime and last sunday i was 0.25 seconds faster (on a large indoor track) then the second guy who was also running a TRF.
I drove my car with just a silvercan motor while the rest of the guys had a hobbywing brushless 21.5T motor.
Very pleased with my TRF

Sorry, you will have to ask Mike Gee what the set up was.

This was on carpet, medium grip
Front:
Gold spring, no pre load
Less camber option
4 mm ride height, no droop
20k oil on kingpins

Center shock:
Flourescent red spring
Kit oil
4 mm center ride height, 2mm droop over ride height

Silver side springs, no pre load
Links in outer position
20k oil in damper tube
4 mm ride height on pod

TCS tires. Fronts were glued up to the ridge on the sidewall. Full sauce rear, 3/4 front

Diff was fairly tight

You need to shim the front upper arm up 2mm in order to get 4 mm front ride height with no spring preload

Thanks for the set-up Mike and nice run. are you running the axles trailing or through the king-pin? Also, ratio did you wind up with for 21.5? Shortly or standard battery pack? JUst started building mine.. love the looks of it.

anybody tried the Rsector widening kit on the TRF101? I'm affraid it won't fit on the rear shaft or do I have to use a spacer or maybe I can also fit the counterweight (54332)?

I assume you had to use different servomounts? It looks to me the trf101 mounts are higher at the back. I was putting on some stock f104 upperarms and the rear is too high compared to the front upper suspension mount.

Sorry just saw this Carl. Pretty sure the axles were through the kingpin. 92/33 on the reedy motor, 38* timing. It was a standard battery, although I think shorty may have been better so the electronics would be more inline to keep the car more stable, but I wasnt about to buy a shorty pack for a rent a ride to try
