Tamiya F104v2 beginner tips

Tamiya F104v2 beginner tips for the new on-road R/C racer.

I made it out to my first race with my Tamiya F104v2 Pro R/C car this past week. The track was an indoor carpet track at 5280 Raceway in Lakewood, CO. It was quite the learning experience as I have never raced on carpet before! I put together some Tamiya F104v2 beginner tips for those of you like me, who are new to on-road R/C racing. The F104v2 is a great Formula 1 replica kit to begin with. However, these tips and tricks will help you out before starting your first race.

It was only a matter of time before I got back into on-road R/C racing. That is where it all started for me some 20+ years ago with a BoLink Eliminator pan-car! In my Tamiya F104v2 unboxing video I go over the kit contents and my plans for the car. This kit is unique in that is a “Black Edition” which includes all black anodized parts instead of the standard blue parts. I also grabbed a Ferrari 2012 replica Formula 1 body kit and plan to build this kit to scale realism.
