The ff01 list doesn't end eh?  I can get over how many you have. 

Actually I have 12 finished FF-01 projects.

Nr 13 Laguna is still waiting for decals

Nr 14 Golf IV waiting for the build

Nr. 15 Indoor runner and Nr. 16 Outdoor Runner are already in the planning stage

My fear is always breaking parts.  I have two cars.  both are brand new never run.. one is so brittle that i fear even looking at it, the other is my version of a TRF spec but too pretty to run lol

I don`t worry about that, got enough spare parts for keep them running.

I always wonder about the statement that the plastic is so brittle, as I find it quite good on all my chassis for its age. Was your car exposed to sunlight for a long time?

These cars weren't tough from the beginning. Especially the front shocktower has a molding issue on the mounts that leads to cracks. All the chassis I have are still good on the plastic side. Only the gear cover (which has no real load to take), the front tower mounts and the rear inner camberlink mounts seem to be sensitive. And these didn't fail in Quincys and my outdoor racing (yet). If I compare it to TT-02 plastic (the tub for example) it just seems to be a little more brittle.

The one car i have is fine.  I actually took the knuckles etc and put them on the other car.  The other car, im not sure.  i went to switch the brass ball ends at one point and the plastic just crumbled.  I'm sure its probably age/uv that is the issue.  i have a ta03 from 1996 that has plastics that are brand new no issue.
