Hopefully we will either see some of the original F1 bodies re-released or some newer ones.

It looks exactly like the F103GT or the F103RX that they don't support anymore......

I dont remember the RM, I had both the RS and RX, but I never heard of an RM , there was the LM, which is about the only chassis that I never owned. Please enlighten me

As one of the So Cal Mini crowd, I would like to tell you that a bunch of us would like to do that very thing! We have heard very good things about our mini brothers to the north....If the TCS finals are at your track, we will most likely ALL be there! Thanks for the invite!!!!

By the way...we heard a rumor you guys run an enduro and start from a sealed kit in the box, assemble the car and race. We even heard that each car has to have working headlights because they turn the lights down at some point to simulate night driving.....any truth to this ?? It sounds like a lot of fun!

By the way...it's true....Sirswiftalot is my twin brother!!!! Belvdere! Who drives a Belvadere!

Even if it puts me in the B it would still be awsome. We've got some fast mini's up here this year, but none of us even try to understand or implement any of the rare earth magnet tricks. We just race, so if you want to race where nobody will complain unless you drive to rough, join us in Seatown and enjoy a great weekend of racing.

Now why would I want to "downgrade" my IFS to an 'R" spec. Oh well, I will go back to getting high on Tamiya paint fumes in my hotel room here in HK.

Too bad... I would love to run this class again. The fast guys were always fast enough to qualify in the top 5 or so of the GT-1 class. These little land missles wer a blast to race wheel to wheel, much more fun than the F-103GT's and so much more stable and responsive.

Larry, bring back F-103 Formula cars...PLEASE!!!!

Supply and demand. Unfortunately these cars aren't too hot nowadays with the 4wd touring car and tire compounds available.

Maybe if you can get enough cars to enter for the finals race we can talk Fred into making it an exhibition "vintage" class.
