Tamiya F104 Pro II
Setup Sheet & Resources
Replaced F104 Pro
This is an upgrade of the Tamiya F104 Pro which was released in 2009. Tamiya has caused a lot of confusion with the name so we'll attempt to shed some light on the subject.
Tamiya originally released the F104 and then the F104 Pro. You can see the difference between them here: Tamiya F104 vs F104 Pro.
Tamiya then brought out a number of variants including the F104 X1 and F104W GP. They then brought out the F104 Pro version 2 which is a completely different car to the F104 Pro II that is shown on this page. The good news is that none of these other models are still made. The bad news is they were all extremely popular so when you search for the F104 Pro II you usually get results for these other cars.
Recommendation: This car is not a competitive race chassis. However, if it can be found on sale then it makes a fun car park basher. It is also sometimes offered for sale with a pre-painted body shell and Tamiya make some of the best pre-painted bodies around.
