It will be available it a kit or in a conversion for those who have the original car. Either way, you will be taken care of.

To be fair, the cost of an XRAY includes a body and wings. Not sure if the WTF1 includes those.

Sure...but I (personally) probably wouldn't run the XRAY bodies/wings anyway... I'd probably end up swapping to Tamiya wings and a different body.

Glad to see this will be a full kit eventually.

For the CRC crew:

Any ETA of the new kit, or the conversion parts? Need to know when I need to have the money saved up and ready!

It should be available in the next couple of weeks.

Again, what's the advantage of the transfers battery?

The biggest thing I've found on other 2WD platforms is the gain in weight bias to the rear end. I don't have experience with F1, but the same has been true for me on 1/12th and other 1/10th cars.

I've also heard that it helps with chassis roll, and thus traction rolling, but I have no experience with this...

Seems most of the manufacturers of F1 cars nowadays are going with the transverse configuration. I'm sure its for a good reason.

You mean like Tamiya did with the F103 25 years ago? lol. Maybe that's why my F103 can run with the modern cars.

Will Tamiya bodies with the optional side pods still fit?

Yes, but not easy, transverse battery placement makes the original Tamiya bodies fit poorly.

The tamiyas wont fit with side pods, they need to be uncut.

About to jump on the crc wagon to get my feet wet in f1 since I already own a wgt gen x 10 se. Any parts compatible between the two models?

The Tamiya F60 will not fit without lots of re-molding and duck tape ;-)

The Protoform Fourteen fits very nice though

I've been practicing at my local track which has a low grip (non crc) carpet. What can I do to tune in more grip, front and rear? The car will not turn in without a lot of braking (which makes the car swap ends, of course, and also needs to be babied one on the throttle, until we get some traction built up. If I do manage to get into the corner at speed with proper braking, it still turns in a bit too much.

I'm using the stock setup, but I'm considering a few changes
Softer main spring
Thicker dampening tube lube

I forgot to mention that I'm using Shimizu/TCS tires with SXT 3

Your options are:
1) softer tires
2) more droop
3) softer front springs (stock 0.45 kit springs are already pretty soft though)
4) little or no side spring pre-load. (some might even set a 1mm gap.)
5) lighter shock oil.

I fought with this condition for quite some time and found that droop was my biggest problem towards getting it to turn in consistently. Like you, I had to be very gentle with the throttle.
