The Tamiya wings are a direct fit. I believe I got ones for the F60(?). I can order them for you at our store. Be there Wed.

Just spoke with Dumper about the wings this week.

They are Tamiya F60 wings from TQ Racing in Chino, CA. He was able to buy them separately from the whole Ferrari body. Contact Sean at TQ.

Or...David has them per his post above.

I know TQ has them but they only have them in white, which is what I have. Plus what spur is most running mine came with a 100 tooth and with that I will have to trim up the right rear side pod of the rear wing in order to get clearance.
Plus I have a CRC body, it's seems that in order for it to fit you have to do a decent amount of modification to get it to fit right.

I went back to TQ ' S site and found the front and rear wings in Black. I have noticed that on the front wing in only goes in to allow only one screw to hold it In place and not both.

Agree, Walt. I ended up with black wings and it only was using the first screw to hold it on.

Do the Tamiya wings only get screwed together; or, are they glued and screwed?

Sounds funny; but, I am serious...LOL

They screw together. I got a white set that came with my car. I don't remember them not coming screws.

The F60 front wing is the one most of us run. It is only held with one screw, and does need a slight trim to clear the steering bulkhead.

I run the 96t spur which clears the rear wings and diffuser just fine. Spoke to Dumper at the Snowbirds and he was running a larger spur.

The CRC body is a great fit. Yes it does need a fair bit of trimming to fit the rear of the car. I used a picture of Mario's shell to guide me.

Hi Bill

Yes the F60 rear wing does screw together. Once together you can stick vinyl or painted lexan over the end plates to get colour on them.

I'm running an older Tamiya moulded plastic on piece wing (TRG make a similar one). Weight loss is minimal, but the lower profile is useful to free the rear of the car up.

Have fun with your WTF1 v

I am running a Tamiya F60 front wing. I like it because it is big and seems to hold up well. It is held in the front by just the one screw. I do believe I had to trim it a little to get it in there.

TQ R/C in Chino is the only place that I have found that sells just the wings without having to buy the whole body kit.

The two "hexagonal" spacers that come in the kit are roll center adjusters, not ride height spacers. I am running a .5mm spacer in between the carbon lower arm and the plastic piece it bolts too. Then I just back the kingpins out to get my ride height of 4.25mm. That is how I set my front droop.

All F1 bodies that I have used so far require a decent amount of trimming to clear everything.

The kit comes with a 96T spur gear. That works fine. I went to a larger spur trying to change the handling of the car by moving the motor forward, but it really did not do what I wanted. I have kept the larger gear in because my diff is still good.

Dumper the KS for the help in F1 at the snow birds. Still never got the difference right but did finally managed to get the car to run a few 10.0 laps... In the main.
As for the front ride height you only shim up the carbon plate. 5mm and use kingpins to drop it rest of the way? No extra shims under steering nuckles? That creates Alot of front droop doesn't it? What about ride height at back of chassis & rear of pod what #s you using?
