3Racing TF201C-001 Graphite Chassis Conversion for F201
Share this model:
Purchased Jan 2023 from Japan.
I picked this up on an auction site in Japan; it's an extremely rare and beautifully engineered carbon chassis upgrade for the Tamiya F201 F1 cars, so now about 20 years old. Brand new, unused and still sealed in its bag, and complete with instructions, stickers and sealed small parts bag. I've added images of the instruction sheet (copied from the original) so you can see just how many parts make up the set. What I didn't know until recently is that the same set was sold by Eagle Racing back in the day, as I found some images of this which I've added below mainly so you can actually see the chassis kit when it's not in a bag! The instructions for the Eagle set are in Japanese only, so maybe they sold some of 3Racing's products under licence just in Japan.
That looks pretty just like it is!
Thanks @Mad-Bee, I totally agree. I think it is one of the most elegant pieces of engineering I’ve ever encountered in relation to a Tamiya model.
