Exclusive: Tamiya TRF101
7 May 2013
Tamiya USA have spoken exclusively, although briefly, with RC Formula1 on their new F1 chassis.
We asked Fred Medel from Tamiya USA for his comments on Tamiya's new F1 chassis the TRF101.
While the details are still close held Fred had this to say:
"The TRF101 should prove to be a upper high end machine on the race track. The specs you have listed seem accurate based on what data I have, but I have seen from experience that some things can be lost in translation [Japanese to English]. The biggest advancement with this new car is the corner speed capability. That’s the biggest thing I’m excited about!
I will be leaving for Japan next Monday [13 May]. I will be attending the [52nd Shizuoka Hobby] show and taking many images. My intention is to do a live BLOG on our new website launching in about 48 hours. I’ll have video and images posted from the show."
We can't wait to see this car! Safe trip Fred.
