Since those are just touring car foams, there's nothing special about them, though. You can mount any toring car foam tires on the F201.
That's what I did last weekend, I mounted 45 shore 30MM Enneti's on the rear and 40 26 MM on the front.. Total changed the whole setup of the car.

That is pricey for the kit. 42K yen! I wonder if it is a completely new kit, and that is the retail price, not the street price.

This item has just been posted on the Rainbowten website and has in brackets (Williams). I believe the 42K yen price is the retail price. The street price should be alot lower. Can't wait to see what this kit includes.

I would speculate to say that it has all the hop ups that Tamiya has to offer for the F201.

Default Specifications of the Tuned F201

I have found out from Rainbowten that the tentative specifications of the tuned chassis kit is as follows:

58303 WILLIAMS BMW FW24 X 1
53513 F201 TURN BUCKLE SHAFT SET X 1
53515 F201 RACING SPRING SET X 1
53522 F201 UNIVERSAL SHAFT X 2
53554 F201 LIGHTWEIGHT COUNTER GEARS X 1
53567 F201 LOW FRICTION DAMPER PISTON SET(FRONT) X 1
53568 F201 LOW FRICTION DAMPER PISTON SET(REAR) X 1
F201 ALUMINUM MOTOR MOUNT (BLUE) X 1
F201 ALUMINUM ROCKER ARM SET (BLUE) X 2
F201 MOTOR GUARD (BLUE) X 1
F201 ALUMINUM DAMPER CYLINDER (BLUE) X 2
53637 F201 REINFORCED LOWER SUSPENSION ARM X 1
F201 ALUMINUM BODY MOUNT (BLUE) [F] X 1 [R} X 2
06 FL HARD PINION (23T) X 1
WILLIAMS CARBON PRINT BODY X 1

It appears that this will be the kit for all those who have yet to purchase an F201 because all those who have probably have all these hop ups already (with the exception that they are not BLUE.)

Hey guys..

When the F201 came out a couple of guys talked me into bringing in a ton of Cross hop ups for the F201. I emailed them all when we got them and no one bought anything.

Sooo...

Schumacher USA 813-889-9691 is blowing out all Cross F201 Hop ups at ~60% off. That means you are buying the stuff for what we paid to get it in the country.

Drop us a line if you need anything.

Sounds good Adrian. The problem with the Cross stuff is that it was too expensive and not as good as the other hop-up parts on the market.

42k yen is the selling price of R10... they don't discount.. they always sell at full retail.
