One thing on the F201...the gearing is fixed!!! I did not see anyway of moving the motor fitting to adjust gearing (not even the TA02 option holes!).... but I'm sure Tamiya will come out with an option motor mount!!!

Not surprising....I'm just waiting for someone to 'shoe horn' a front one-way into the car!!!! or come out with a new one!!! With so little weight up front....I think this car is going to need a front one-way.

if the tires is that big, the whole chassis will be quite long tho.

I didn't measure the tires but KY showed me in a mag tonite that the original F201 tires are 64mm dia...thats the same as our TC foams!! Maybe KY can fill us in since he has the car now!!!!

The F201 is longer than the old F103......but not as long as the Indy F103L.....I saw a picture comparison from somewhere...........
