YEeeeep ! Got ta get one of those. Amazing what Tamiya can come up with just by renewing something from their drawers. I wonder how they will drive with tourin-bodies on, as I remeber the old GT's could be quite a handfull...and as far as I know the touring-bodies has less downforce than the GT's have.

Wonder when they will be available !

Touring tires are bigger in diameter than the ol F1 tires. So you might also need the rear ride height adjuster to companate.

Why not just get the whole kit and use the F103 as a spare for parts. I'll be doing just that...

Good point if the kit sales on the shelf for 69.99 like the F103 originally did then I suppose I could pick up another kit if it comes with tires and a body,

but if no tires no body and no signicant difference in chassis ?

I wonder if it handles better than the trf f103lm I had? Even with those wide F1 tires it tended to drift.

Feb 22 in japan so maybe March here. No tamiya body included sucks.
