I always stick with oem for my tamiya cars. They are made for it and generally always work or fit with little if any mods.

P.S. Still racing my newest F103 locally with good results. Even with a silver can motor.

"Speedy- pits for sure 571/572" According to the guys at 5280 Raceway. I just used the F103 equivalent which is the soft front and hard rear. I found them at TQ RC Racing. Im still trying to decide on which Speed Passion ESC to use since the Reventon Pro is kind of overkill.

571/572 is for F104 wheels, is it not? I was looking for the part numbers for the F103 equivalent for the 571/572 combo, but thanks. :-)

Do any of you guys know if the motor that comes with the TT-01 and the F103 are the same? I'm want to start running in a "F103 silver can" class but my kit didn't have a motor so I have a TT-01 silver can motor. Is the TT-01 motor the same as the J-motor?

If you run the silvercan klasse, you can use both.
Earlier Tamiya kits had the Mabuschi motors in it.
The later kits had the Johnson.
Both are fine.
The Johnson for me was always a bit faster.
The Mabuschi you could "tune" a bit better

Yes, the motor in your TT01 is the same as the motor included in the F103 kits.

Default Tekin "RPM" or standard Redline Motor?

Recently purchased my first RC car in 20+ years and am blown away by the advances in technology during that time. I'm building an F104W GP primarily for use on indoor carpet tracks but also occasional zipping up and down my (asphalt) street. No organized racing at the moment. I was fairly committed to Tekin electronics back in the day and have decided on an RS brushless ESC. I want a 21.5 redline motor to match but am not sure if I should go with the "standard" version or the RPM version. Which do most guys go with for 1/10 F1 applications? Thanks!
