Have you looked at the photo gallery ever? There are plenty of GT1 cars there.....as long as the base is an F1 chassis...

HELP!!! I just ran the car and it was running well and everything was good, until......I decided to try my rubber tires so I changed the wheels on my F103 and now the damn diff won't act right.

I changed the wheels, moved the trust bearing assembly to the new wheel, and put it back together. Now the diff is slipping when I set the diff action at about medium. I'm not sure if I got the concave(cone)washers facing the wrong direction or if I did something wrong to the diff balls and rings.

SO I got two question that I think might be the problem:

1. Which direction should those three concave washers be facing. When I took it apart they were all facing the same way stacked ontop of each other. Is this how their supposed to be. If it is, which way should the dish be facing. In toward the wheel, or out toward the thrust bearing?

2. Also, are the diff rings and ball supposed to be greased or not. I thought I saw a small amount of grease on there when I took it apart, so I added some. Was this a bad thing?

Hit me with some answers as soon as possible guys. Remember this is my first Tamiya F1, so this whole trust bearing in the wheel thing is new to me.

Thanks for any help you can give.

the cone of the concave washers should be pointed towards eachother....this is what give the whole diff set-up tension so you can adjust it.......

Nevermind guys, I got it figured out! I just kept moving the cone washers around until everything was working normal again.

I still want to know about the diff rings and balls though. Do they need grease like normal diffs or what?

I don't know if this is a tip or trick....but here it goes...

When I run carpet with my F103 LeMan style bodies, And when the car comes out of the corner it usually spins out...[still can't get the proper acceleration for both wheel at the same time coming out of the corner]
So what i tryed was to just take the 'balls' out, so I got the rear end as one unit [lock up diff]
Then when I hit the track, of course. No more spinning out.
But do you guys think during cornering, it will slow it down? since the inside wheel is the same as the outside wheel....?

Maybe you guys think the spin out part will be even worse...but it is actually better...

that's interesting...have to try it. I just loosen my up and be sure to feather the throttle when coming out of the corner...

Thats pretty much a solid axle set up. Sounds like something they would run in 1/8 on-road. I say if it works for you keep it.

Default Benetton Decals

Does anyone know where I might be able to find some Benetton decals? I don't really care what year they are from, I just would like to do a colorful paint job on my new body.

Thanks,
Jody

Odie: I don't know, but you are aware that the Benneton team is no more don't you. Now there is only Renault.

Check Ebay. I have seen lot's of uncommon decal sheets there. Just search for "F1" or something like that and look through the million or so results that come back. You could always make them yourself if you have a color printer.
