Badboy,

Depends on the track, they have a little longer wheelbase, so they will not turn as well as the shorter cars. If the track is not so tight, you will probably be OK....

I think you just get the shorter FRP chassis and you good to go... anyone know if this is right ?

Fangio--> thanks for the info. Am planning on showing up.

Has anyone tried the link-type front suspension? How does it handle compared to the stock unit?

Yeah. You're correct. Obviously, the body will not fit either. If you get the FRP chassis, you should also get the FRP upper deck. If you're going to do that, I'd just buy the F103RX chassis. By the time you add in all the hopups that you really want, you will have spent as much as the RX chassis.

The link-type suspension works pretty well, but you need to check that the kingpins move freely up and down after each run. I use Paragon Ultralon motor lubricant on each pivot ball to make sure everything is nice and free.

One idea I have been thinging about (of F-1 takes off again) is two different classes involving the "L"chassis. You could have the RX/RS chassis in one class using 6 cell unlimited (or 19t) motor and the L chassis would be the "busch series" of open wheel. The "L" series would use 6 cell stock or 4 cell stock, maybe even TCS rules.
What do you think?

the link type front syspension will not work on asphault but it will on carpet. The same goes for the piviot ball rear suspension.

Dunno if I agree with that. I run my TRF car (with an F-type chassis) on prepared asphalt with the pivot ball t-plate setup and the mulitlink suspension and the car works well. The only complaint I have about the multilink suspension is that handling can be inconsistant if you don't check the mobility of the kingpins before every run. If they hang, even a little, I clean them out and put the Paragon lubricant on them and they work great.

Where I race, there are guys running the "L" chassis cars along with "F" chassis cars. I think the long wheelbase cars look cooler, but they compete well, even on a very technical track. You could try doing something like the ROAR 12th scale classes, where you have a stock/6 cell class and a mod-open/4 cell class. Now that would be cool! All you have to do now is find a bunch of guys with "L" chassis cars! I'm not building mine, so count me out (for now.) If only I could find a red wing set... then I could make a Target/Ganassi Racing car....
