Not sure if it is possible. Tech and Kose make 1 ways for the F201 already though.

even if it did fit it wouldn't be legal for TCS. It has to be made specifically for that car.

Nige - I believe the rules are not so strictly enforced in the local Tamiya races which Ozone participates in.

Ozone, you should check earlier on in this thread. I believe some one said that the ball diffs from the TB-Evo III cannot be used in the F201. That being so, the same may be the case for the one way.

Are all the hop-ups for the F201 really needed? If not, which one really do make a difference?

I got an F201 last month. It seems like half the money I payed went to Ferrari licensing fees, and the other half was for the car. It has so much plastic!
The chassis is also very monopolized, all the parts have to be from Tamiya. I mean its impossible to change the gearing, and shocks. I've had a Radio Shack Golden Arrow and it was faster!!
It looks cool though.

Give the car a chance. It's very fun to race and the long wheelbase makes it challenging. Put a Monster stock motor or a 19T motor in it and it will do similar laptimes to stock sedan. I've been racing my F201 for over a year now and it's one of my favorite classes.

yup!, with the stock gearing, the monster or the Chameleon is the way to go...And definitely comparable in both speed and performance to a 4wd sedan (if set up correctly)...

One of the funnest classes out there..


getting back to the prefered diff issue,...is there a difference in design/construction of the lightweight diff halves compared to the kit unit...also is there a spring that will fit/cushion the thrust bearing to keep the screw from breaking and baking out?..

Yes, there's quite a difference between the lightweight outdrive set and the kit one. The lightweight set works like most other diffs where you have an aircraft nut that the adjustment screw tightens into rather than that grub screw that's supposed to hold the adjustment screw in place. It works very well and holds adjustment like you would expect it to. You can also use blue loctite on the kit diff adustment screw to keep it from backing out.

Hi Guys,

We got more 3 racing hop-ups in stock for the F201...including "Michelin" Tires. These are new tires from 3 racing, and I'm not sure how well they work (I have not had a chance to try them out yet) but they have the words "Michelin" on the side and that alone for me is cool enough hehehe. We also have new shocks from 3 Racing and complete Ti-screw kit for the F201. Here's a direct link below to the new stuff:

And due to popular demand, F1RL will be starting up again end of July. I'll keep you guys posted on that.

Steve Wang
