For F103GT, it was since March 2006. For F103 F1 chassis, since when they were around.

I did own some of the older kits like the F102s, F101s, Road Wizards, but sold them away because I didn't have enough space for them.

I'm writing from Singapore

It's coming along nicely. Love the scale courage look so your ride should be sweet. Compared to the photo you posted it looks spot on.

Are you going to race at TCS Nationals?

Thanks

I don't plan on doing any serious racing, although I would not mind at all. There really is not a big F103GT series around me from what I know. If I am wrong, someone please chime in.

Ill get some more pics when I can find my curved lexan scissors so I can cut the wheel wells.

Well I saw the date for the Nats. But it states that I must have raced in a previously held regional race to be eligable? Is this so? And if I am able to race, is there a class for the Courage body? I dont have another Tamiya body atm and it wouldnt really be what I wanted to race if I am just going to slap a touring car body on.

Im ready tho!

The F103GT class at the nationals is an exhibition class and the Courage is the only legal body. I don't know if you have to have raced in a regional event to run in the exhibition classes - the site says the TT-Gear class is open to anyone, so I don't see why F103GT wouldn't be.

I read the rules n stuff for it on Tamiyausa.com, and they state the class is "open to anyone" because it is a "exhibition" class. That means I can enter without having raced any previous Tamiya Cup races? That would be cool to get in on the last race at the Tamiya Track.
