Default Tamiya F201 with Hop-ups

Hey all,

I bought this used F201 and I am in the process of doing a very detailed rebuild, but I am going to sell it anyways. Car will come partially assembled-but not one part missing to complete rebuild..

Things I have done:

-polished every ballstud
-Polished shock shafts
-ultrasonically cleaned all bearings and re-oiled.
-silicone 0-rings on all suspension ball joints to deslop.
-Front tranny and suspension fully built.
-rebuilt diffs. and removed any high spots on bearing races in tranny housings.
-cleaned all drivetrain parts.
-replaced all lower arms with re-enforced arms.
-rebuilt all shocks.

The car comes with these hop-ups:
-lt wt front diff.
-Front and Rear Universals!!!
-aluminum front rocker arms.
-re-enforced front and rear arms (new).
-aluminum front shock bodies.
-aluminum Motor Mount.

And comes with these other parts and spares:
-Mutiple sets of kit tires, wheels and inserts-some new and unmounted.
-well used full set of chassis components.
-A BAR TOyota body in used, but good shape. Two sets of front wings and a rear wing.
-front and rear dogbones and axles.
-plastoic shock bodies.
-manual, original box, servo saver, servo mounts, all screws, antenna tube. Its all there.


The only thing I need to warn about is there is one screw that stripped so I had to cross cut the screw to get it out-hence a dremel line on the stock chassis-which has the usual scratches from being run outdoors.
I can finish rebuilding the car if you like.

$160.00 shipped add 3% for Pay Pal.

Thanks,
Ray

Thanks-but to be honest-I have enevr driven a F201, but all I can say is what I have done so far to the car has much improved it from when I got it. I amtrying to build it like I would my 12th scale. NO slop-everything smooth as can be.

Yea, that's cool ... and if I do buy it, I'd really like for you to finish with what you had planned for the car. Here in St Louis we don't have much on-road action, so no real experts to work with. So getting a car done by you would be nice, a learning experience to see how other guys do it.

Looks nice, but I'm going to have to bow out ... since I just bought a TB-02 and a T4 truck. Unless you'd be interested in a TB-01 with tons of aluminum on it

Tigeryan-its 100% legal. IT needs things like the re-enforced prop shatfs, lt. wt counter gears and another lt. wt. diff-the its about as hopped up as a TCS legal F201 can be.

NOtice on the rear arms I already put the silicone 0-rings on.

Heres a pic of most of what you'll get. ONe set-of tires is worn out. ONe set is Pit Shimizu hards and then theres two brand new sets of stock tires. ONe has inserts.

Ha, I should just buy an EVO ... but for some reason I always buy the lowest model possible and then spend 3x as much adding parts to it.

I had some of the very First EvoIII's to hit America. Bought them from a HK shop before Tam USA brought them over. My TB02 is actually an evoIII converted into a TB02 with longer driveshaft, aluminum bits all over it. Its gonna make a rockin GT2 or GT! car I think.
