I've got a slight problem. I have a F103 and I just installed the 3 racing rear alum pod. I also have the alum ride height adjusters. Problem I want to run an Associated axle like I had it it before with bearing adaptor. Any idea if there is a bearing adaptor for 3racing to be able to for an Assoicated axle.

the 12L axle fits the 3 racing rear end. I ran the same setup in my 104

For the vibration use shims on your axles,or get rid of theTamiya wheels. That sound you hear when you corner is "The Tamiya sound" this goes away with good wheels.
i am running standard uprights hence why i was surprised with the amount of understeer.i also have small shims in the axles but didnt realise the tamiya wheels were prone to chatter. would the zen wheels work any better? thay seem to be the only 103 foam wheels i can find(non tamiya)

Are you using the flanged ball bearing in the alum. adjusters. Because that's what I've got and they don't fit because of the flange.Do the flangeless bearing work?I found some flangeless BB and they don't work either.The size of the hole for the bb is 9.6mm. maybe they changed since you got yours?the part number for the adjusters is F103rm-03.

Hello guys !

I'm very interested in buying this second-hand F103 . The owner sasy it's 8 years old and very rarely used . It has a carbon chassis but everything else is standard plastic . I will run it rarely on an outisde asphalt track , since there is no F1 competition here . What do you think , is it worth buying ?

It looks good, but that appears to be the FRP chassis, and not the carbon.

Plus they are only 120.00 brand new...

Well , converted into dollars it's about 50$ . It comes with a servo , silver can and a battery . It doesn't come with a body however . I think it's a good deal ...

I'm experienced in TC and 1/18 but I know very little about F1 However , I always found it very interesting . Hopefully I'll make this deal ...
