Hey Tom,

I was lucky enough to get a hold of the only 2 ever made prototype 2011 Calsonic Nissan LeMans GT3, they resemble a 911 GT3 Porsche.

Thanks for the offer.

Wow, I'd forgotten all about that whole Nissan/Porsche merger. Guess VW really was pissed at the Porsche family for that attempted takeover.

Wow, a Calsonic GT-3. That really grabbed us all by surprise. I wonder if it might even be..... blue ?

Oh darn, I figured with the money made off 3 sets I could pay for airfare, rental car and take my wife out to a nice dinner and you would not have to pay shipping like on ebay.

Default If you call one Wolf, you invite the pack...

Will the Wolf F104 be banned from this years TCS?

The wide body, different tires, wings, etc, could be tuned by a treacherous old ex-F103 driver into a very competitive car. You know, looking for the unfair advantage!

So will they ban it or not! Opinions please!

Wow! Tamiya finally put out a F103 beater and had to disavow it!

I guess now we won't get one of those famous Dave Jun comparison articles: 15th aniversary F103 vs the F104wolf.

Any specific details other than the obvious that it would whoop azz?

I wonder now will it be banned at the world finals where the advantage on carpet would be even larger?

Thanks for the update.

Maybe someone who has run the F104 with the 103 front end, wheels and tires (foam of course) will chime in and tell us how they like it.

I've run against a couple of em with my 103 on foam and they weren't on pace although they were faster than the 104s on foam.
At least that's what I gathered from them.
I like to call em 103.5's.

Still think the F103 on foam is the boss.

So, who's out there running these?
