Never tried them. I use Kevin Frewers donuts, they're cheap and good.

Not sure how his international shipping is,but his service here in the states is top notch.
Donuts wear nice and work good both on carpet and outdoors.

hi, it's been a while since I dusted out my F103. Currently I've go O-rings instead of springs at the bottom front arm. Does anyone still use this set up or everyone reverted to springs? I also read something about spring on top setup but not sure how that is implemented. Would there not be too little room between the wheel and top swing arm? Oh, I've got the swinging top arm not the fixed type if that makes a difference. Thanks.

The spring on top only works with the fixed front end. The link type front end needs the spring on the bottom.

Front wheel bearings are the 850 times 4 type bearings.
Rear axle depends on what motorpod you are running
Stock motorpod are 1260 times 2 and the hight adjusable gearcase are 1060 times 2
Diff bearings are 1280 times 3
You can look it up in the manuals on the Tamiya site.

regards Roy

Those are the sizes.
850 means 8 outside,5 inside.
1060 is 10 outside 6 inside and so on
If you go to your LHS and ask for those bearings you get the right one.

honestly, I cannot remember how it handled since it was such a long time ago. I first learnt of it from this forum when some driver won a big F103 event (apologies to said driver for not remembering your name and the event ) and then everyone found out that he was using this o-ring mod instead of the usual springs. I believe some cried foul play but was apparently OK'd by the organizers.
