Thanks, but are there any options when it comes to mounting regular touring car wheels and tires?

I've been told that 1/10 scale pan car tires work. Check into it.

Well if you have the older style F103 you can convert the axles to the F103GT axles which will let you use any rim that uses a standard hex. This would allow you to use TC rims and tires and also rims and tires for the F201.

1/10 pan car tires can work but you have to do some converting...you'll have to change out the rear axle to a standard sized axle and drill out the bearing holders to accept standard bearings instead of metric. For the front tires people who did the conversion would often still use a metric bearing close to the same size as the standard but put a piece of masking tape over the hole in the wheel before pressing the bearing in. That would take up any slop between the bearing and the wheel.

Does anyone know were you can get either aluminium diff cases for the 201 or the braces that fits on the arm mounts? I went through two cases just by brushing the boards.

If anyone is looking for an F103 car (or three) to refurbish to race or for a shelf queen, I;ve got a few for sale, plus a clear body, plus tires. Here's the link:

The only difference between the M & T body kits are the body. The M body is a mid 90s high nose design with a smaller front wing and a more adjustable taller rear wing, overall it looks to be less down force at both ends and the better choice for most conditions. The T body is an early 90s low nose with a very large but lower rear wing and good sized front wing. In general the low nose design should hold up better because the nosecone is is filled by the front wing strengthening it.

The L body kit coming out is also a low nose early 90s shell (lotus 107B) with a larger front wing than the T body and a rear wing sized between the M & T bodies.

The R looks to be a full hop-up kit w/o body. Given that only a few hop-ups really improve the car I would suggesting getting one of the std kits along with select upgrades.

For hop-up I would recommend the trf shock, aluminum motor mount, spur gear set, front spring set and either the graphite chassis or a long upper deck. The turnbuckle set is a nice convince but not necessary.

I need some gearing help and I'm not having any luck over on the F103RM thread...

I have an F103RM that I'm trying to set up for a spec race. We're going to run handout 27T 30 (high revving) motors with 6 cells on an outdoor asphalt track with decent grip.

I'm hoping to run this 93t spur:

I believe it is compatible with standard 64p pinions. (is this correct?)

Any suggestions for pinion size?
