** UPDATE ** Check back for exclusive interviews with the designer of the TRF101 soon.

Tamiya has announced the immenant release of a new TRF, this time it is something a bit different, a TRF F1 car.

Looking at the first picture and initial (Badly translated) information it looks to be very much an evolution of the F104v2 but with a new front end, wider motor pod and more link settings.

Anyway, assuming the price is right, and I am allowed to race at the UK nationals this August I might be starting to save up for one now.. the combination of F1 car and TRF is a big draw for a me.

Here is the press info.

  • The front arms are 2.5mm carbon fibre rather than the plastic used on the F104
  • Servo can be placed standing up or laid down
  • The aluminum motor mount has "extended lateral width"
  • Carbon rear shaft
  • Quick mounting position from three locations before and after (No idea what this means, maybe the front suspension mounts?)
  • TRF damper
  • F104 metal adjustable uprights
  • TB-03 Aluminum Motor Spacer
  • HT aluminum servo saver horn
  • 24T hard coat .04 pinion
TRF101 8692582587929472504

  1. Front carbon arm is the upper arm, the lower arms are the same as the F104. Looks like a fixed upper arm, so back to sliding kingpin like the F103. Means you can adjust caster/camber by replacing the upper arm.

    Not sure about the "extended lateral width" on the motor mount, but the left side clamping hub looks the same length as the one on the F104v2.

    Side links have two sets of mounting points, so you can move them in and out for tuning as moving them out will stiffen the suspension.
