Looking at the first picture and initial 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.

Tamiya has announced some specs of TRF101 F1:

  • 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
