Tamiya's FF03-PRO

I know this is kind of old but I haven't written about it yet and it's an alternative to the TOP Racing Sabre I wrote about earlier. I like FWD touring cars. Actually I like the variety that touring cars offer. FWD is one of many flavors in the touring car ice cream store. I know the old FF01 was supposed to be the best FWD racer excluding the Yokomo YRF. I never drove it before though. I have a pair of FWD's on the horizon and maybe come Christmas I'll have one of these sweeties too! I buy my own Christmas and birthday presents and act like they're surprises. So pitifully sad, yes. Any how this thing is mad sexy and much cheaper than the TOP. So if you're poor like me check it out.

the FF-03 PRO, the newest touring car chassis kit in our line-up. The FF-03 chassis features a horizontally-placed front-motor, front-wheel drive and comes enhanced with a range of high performance parts to offer you anew driving experience. Due to its unique chassis layout and FWD setup, you can enjoy a style of driving different from 4WD chassis machines. The chassis features a newly designed lower deck and comes with a compact front gearbox. Suspension is equipped with short reversible suspension arms and TRF416 uprights on the Inboard Front Suspension(IFS) setup.
