That is not an FF platform. Looks more like a souped-up TA06. Looks like it might have an interesting setup, maybe single belt and direct rear drive. That would be interesting.

The F1 chassis must have a really tall nose to accomodate the servo stood up.

Most current F1s mount the servo in that manner.

Went to the website listed in the first post. Did I miss something because there isn't any "news" there other than a couple computer generated images. The only thing "news worthy" is that the photos are actually from tamiyablog.com

So to discuss, I would suggest going to the actually website that the information came from (http://tamiyablog.com/2013/04/future...bby-show-2013/). Not only does it have the same pictures, it has the part numbers for the new products.

Also to discuss, why did I waste my time going to a website with only half the story instead of the original source. Is someone trying to increase page hits on their website?

It's not a new car its this: 84352 TA06 Carbon Chassis Kit

This kit looks like they put the servo on the other side. This is something they should have done before so you could mount the speedo on the same side as the motor for easy wiring and still keeping good balance.

Interesting F1. It's definitely got some changes in the front end versus current F104's.

It is actually a news site. Not a blog.
