Formula Perfect Machined & Anodized Rim Set

$95

Place an Order

After many months of meticulous machining, we are thrilled to release the Ferrari 641/2 (F190) Formula Perfect Machined & Anodized Rim Set. Our anodizing partners never fail to deliver the best, and only the best. We hope you're as excited as we are. There's nothing more to say... just look at them!

Many years ago we were allowed to photograph an actual Ferrari 641/2 and we used those photos as reference to create perfect CAD drawings so we could accurately create these 1/12 scale gems. The number of holes, the width of the spokes and many more features were painstakingly programmed and machined into each rim and adds a whole new level of realism to your 641/2!

Unlike the stock plastic rims in the kit, the correct number of holes appear on the front and back with accurate cutouts to create the spokes. Once anodized, these will provide the perfect to scale look to your Ferrari. Also included, but not featured at this time, will be four machined valve stems to complete the look and special back spacers if you are using the stock spindle and wheel nut provided by Tamiya.

We made a limited quantity of these and it will be awhile before we can produce more, so if you are interested, order now while they are available. Also, if you would like to get a look at the spectacular black anodizing that will be applied to these rims, jump over to the Ferrari 643 page. Here at Thunder Valley F1, we agonize over the details before we apply "Formula Perfect", our seal of approval, to our products.

Included In This Set
  • ○ 8 Precision CNC machined rim sections
  • ○ 4 CNC machined valve stems
  • ○ 4 special back spacers to use with stock spindle and wheel nuts if you are not using our Formula Perfect Spindle & Wheel Nut Set

This Formula Perfect Set includes two photo etch sheets, one with parts on sprues and one with parts on rubber backing. Some parts are simply too small to attach via sprues so our etcher allows us to continue to use this now nearly exclusive process to produce the smallest of parts. The parts are very easily removed from the rubber backing by soaking them in acetone. Additional images show the injector stacks, corrected air box base, shrink tubing, aluminum rod for the radiator plumbing, plus the packaging and the photo reference USB memory stick of Alain Prost's Ferrari 641/2 to give you exclusive photos to capture every detail.

Included In This Set
  • ○ 12 CNC-Machined Velocity Stacks
  • ○ Modified Resin Air Box Base
  • ○ 2 Sheets of Photo Etched Parts, 1 Sheet on Rubber Backing and 1 Sprue
  • ○ Pack of Plumbing Rod, Shrink Tubing and Clear Tubing
  • ○ Flash Drive with Images of a Real Ferrari 641/2 for Reference

Formula Perfect Dampers Set

$63.50

Place an Order

Check it out! You've waited and they are finally ready…the Dampers Set for the Ferrari 641/2 (F190). We worked hours and hours writing the programs and machining all the parts to complete this set so we could begin shipping them to you. We feel they turned out spectacular, we hope you will feel the same. This set has 16 components to replace the kit parts and really bring to life how the dampers on the Ferrari 641/2 really were. Shipping will begin on Jan. 8th with the first packages going to the Post Office on Jan. 11th.

Coming very soon will be the follow-up set that will contain the Tanks, Half Shafts and Bottles Set. We wanted to release them both at the same time but it was simply too much to accomplish in the time allowed. We'll have that set ready in about three to four weeks, so please check the web site from time to time for updates and new photos.

We're offering a special on the two new sets. Everyone who purchases the Dampers Set now or before the release of the Tanks, Half Shafts and Bottles Set is released will get free shipping on the second new set to be released as well as any other Ferrari 641/2 related product. We really wanted to release both sets at the same time but it just wasn't possible and we realize no one likes to pay for shipping in the first place let alone pay it twice in the sight of three to four weeks. So, we decided we'd offer a savings on the shipping so you can get this great new set now and the next one we'll pick up the tab on the shipping. Any questions, please let us know.

Included In This Set
  • ○ 2 Front Dampers - Upper Section - Replaces Kit Parts #A17
  • ○ 2 Front Dampers - Upper Section - Hexed Base - These inset into the bottom of the other Front Damper Upper Sections
  • ○ 2 Front Dampers - Lower Section - Replaces Kit Parts #A5
  • ○ 2 Front Damper Bumpers - These slide onto the shaft of the front dampers lower sections and need to be painted a flat, burnt orange
  • ○ 2 Rear Dampers - Upper Sections - Replaces Kit Parts #A13
  • ○ 2 Rear Dampers - Lower Sections - Replaces Kit Parts #A24 and #A25
  • ○ 2 Rear Damper Reservoirs - Replaces Kit Parts #E10 and #E11

Formula Perfect Suspension Components Set

$64.50

Place an Order

The new Ferrari 641/2 Suspension Components Set are complete and we will begin shipping them the week of Feb. 8th. The entire set now contains 26 components. The original 10 parts just weren't sufficient to replicate the detail needed. This did mean we needed to raise the price a bit from our original estimate but we feel you will be thrilled with them and and the detail will be fantastic. The 8 pins in the foreground are for mounting the suspension arms. They are inserted from the bottom, holding the suspension arm in place and a nut is glued in place holding everything together while still allowing the parts to move. The two pins that are located on the left hold the two rectangular parts in place on the rear of the car. They replace the screws and press fit into the part the screw would have been threaded into. The two larger parts at the back of the picture work as covers for the two triangular parts that are still held in place by the kit supplied screws. Once the parts have been screwed in place this part is glued over the top of the screw completely hiding it. Once assembled and installed this upgrade kit adds a tremendous amount of detail and realism to your Ferrari 641/2.

Included In This Set
  • ○ 1 Left Front Rocker - Replaces Kit Part #A
  • ○ 1 Right Front Rocker - Replaces Kit Part #A6
  • ○ 2 Bases for Front Rockers (Still use screws #BS3 to hold the left and right front rockers in place.)
  • ○ 2 Front Rocker Screw Covers - These replace kit parts #R25
  • ○ 1 Left Rear Rocker - Replaces Kit Part #A22
  • ○ 1 Right Rear Rocker - Replaces Kit Part #A20
  • ○ 8 Suspension Pins - Replace Kit Screws #BS5
  • ○ 8 Nuts to be placed on the under side of the Suspension Pins
  • ○ 2 Rear Rocker Mounting Pins - Replace Kit Screws #BS3

Formula Perfect Tanks, Bottles & Half Shafts Set

$88.50

Place an Order

Finally!!! We started this set back in June of last year and had to shelve it due to health crisis that happened near the end of July and laid me up for nearly three months. Once I was able to get back to work we focused on the Dampers Set (which can be viewed below) and was a great success.

Now we finally have ready the Tanks, Bottles & half Shafts Set. This great new set is the final touch for detailing your Ferrari 641/2. This Set presently contains 26 components and I am thinking I'll add four additional parts for a little extra detail. The tank in the rear left of the image is not finished and we will publish a new photo as soon as I can get my hands on a very specific tool needed to complete them. The fluid bottles that go on the front of the car are drilled out so you can add fluid in them and put the cap on top to add some incredible detail. We recommend using Mineral Oil that can be tinted. ( We originally suggest vegetable oil but were advised by a customer that type of oil will go bad after awhile so it should be avoided.) The caps fit on very well but if you would like them to be completely sealed use a standard white glue sparingly. We like the white glue because it dries clear and will allow the caps to be removed if need be in the future. One little part that isn't pictured is the u-joint itself for the steering column. They are incredibly small but make the steering column u-joint assembly completely functional. We'll also include the brass needed to join everything together. So, there are the CV Joints, mounting pins for the tanks, the fuel fill port for the fuel tank, the fire extinguishing tank, oil tank plus a lot more.

Included In This Set
  • ○ 2 Half Shafts - Replace Kit Parts #A4
  • ○ 2 CV Joints - Replace Kit Parts #R16
  • ○ 3 pcs Steering Column - Replaces Kit Part #R47
  • ○ Fire Bottle - Replaces Kit Part #R35
  • ○ 2 Fire Bottle Line Connections
  • ○ 2 Master Cylinder Reservoir Bottles plus Caps (Can be fiilled with mineral oil)
  • ○ 1 Tank - Replaces Kit Part #R36 plus 2 mounting pins
  • ○ 1 Tank - Replaces Kit Part #R38 plus 2 mounting pins
  • ○ 1 Fuel Fill Port - Replaces Kit Part #R48
  • ○ 1 Fuel Injection Connection Point - Replaces Kit Part #R23
  • ○ 1 Bottle - Replaces Kit Part #R24
