Tamiya F104X1 Build

Formula 1 racing is starting to pick up here in Southern California. Maybe it’s the scale realism, the exciting handling or the competition. Or maybe it’s the inception of the seriously cool UF1 Series. Whatever the reason, this class has sparked my interest in onroad racing again and has me excited about each and every race. If you’re in the SoCal area, you should check out one of our races.

You can find the full, step-by-step build up right here on CompetitionX. I will be including a setup sheet and some build notes.
