The F103R is the 15th Anniversary special kit, includes carbon chassis, full length carbon top deck, alloy servo mounts, alloy motor mount, alloy diff parts, TRF oil filled shock, blue anodised alloy parts throughout. Still uses the O-ring mounted T-piece rear suspension. No body or wings included.

The F103RM is today the standard F103 chassis. Fibreglass chassis, short top deck, plastic servo and motor mount, plastic diff parts, simple plastic damper. Uses pivot ball T-piece rear suspension. Comes with body and wings.

Thanks. The fact that the tamiya website shows the f103rm with most/all hopups on it was confusing me.

There wasn't a f103 that is somewhere in between? Was looking to get one but theres hardly any f103r's

You won't find many F103R cars, they were a limited edition model and haven't been available for a couple of years.

There isn't a mid range model, Tamiya made the basic F103RM with pivot ball rear pivot suspension recently but now out of production, and they currently only make the F103RS chassis with O-ring pivot suspension on their old Lotus and McLaren rereleases. Plenty of both cars still available new online.

To be honest you don't need many of the hop ups available for the F103. An alloy motor mount and any touring car oil shock is all you really need, everything else is up to you.

Default Eating Spur Gears

I keep losing the gearmesh on my car while on the track and subsequentially destroying the apur gears. Does anyone else have this problem? I'm using the finned aluminum motor mount with the flat spacer on the outside, and I think it just doesn't hold down tight enough, even when the screws feel locked in.

How long are the screws , i had it once where the screws were too long , hitting the magnet before fully tightening down

Try adding a washer or 2 to the screws and try again

Don't bother with the metal plate when using a metal motor mount, it's necessary for the plastic mount but not neded on the alloy one.

I just bought one of these today, so I plan on going back and reading this thread to learn what I can about this car, but I have a couple of questions that hopefully ya'll can help with before hand. Are there any necessary hop-ups out of the box I need to be looking for? Any fragile areas that I need to have spares for? Thanks in advance.
