Im not trying to hijack or bring back a zombie post, But I have been out of the hobby a few years and found some good deals on new to me kits, like this one. And of all the different F1 cars I have had this is the first real Tamiya. And I am impressed. Im reading this thread and only on page 3 but had one of my questions already answered. I am looking forward to hitting the track and a few boards very soon. Thanks

I finally hit the track with my TRF101 this past weekend. I didn't make a lot of laps and the ones I did I was taking it easy being first time on carpet in 4 years, first time on the Black carpet ever, and the first time I drove the 101. I will say that I was very impressed and if I could have ran some more I could have been a lot faster. My first timed lapped matched my fast lap in my old Exotek F1Ultra 200mm car. And I made no adjustments since I built car with the exception of taking out some excess rear droop. I had the gearing all wrong and needed to drop several teeth on the pinion. But self induced technical failures ended the day (forgot soldering iron and made a bad A wire solder. That said I expect to drop at least a second per lap next time out and maybe more if I really ring it out.

A few minutes with what you have and a piece 220 grit sandpaper would certainly do the trick.

honestly I run mine with stock set up out of the box but with the Fenix diff and its great, and it wasn't too much different when running the Tamiya diff. Car is way better than me.

Default Front suspension options

Been running my TRF 101 for many years. Any advice on front suspension options? I can finish the season if I can replace the front end. (Never really liked the front end). Any other options out there, like 2 piece upper arms design? Not seeing much and I can't get spares to replace the existing top ball holders (camber adjust blue) or steering knuckles. Thanks.

I have a couple of sets of the upper ball mounts in stock, as well as a few of the upper arms .The other option is part# 42286 which is an optional 101 front end kit. Similar in design but quite a bit more robust. I have a NIP one for $120 or I could sell you a used but low mileage one for $75
