Still searching for the 103 tires and compounds I need. Thanks Cuda for the info!! Found some 38 degree fronts and 30 degree rears in Hong Kong. Ordered a couple of sets to try. Going for the older 53128's for the front-- found some 53129's.
FYI

Allrighty then---found some wheels and tires at Gyro-- AND two packs of the Orion 4500mah lipos to run with!! These should get me enough run time to practice and qualify in that their running short qualifying sessions. I'm going to try and make the race this weekend--- just gotta hope one of my radios shows up!! AND I get time for working on this thing to clean it up and have it ready to run!!
Hope to CYA out there.

I just recently bought my first F103 RM from a fellow mamber, and was wondering what LiPo's fit this chassis? Do the ROAR aproved hard casees fit?

If you run the o ring suspension, almost anything will fit. With the pivot ball, the rounded ones like an orion 3800 fit better

There are some high capacity lipos that fit with the pivot ball rear suspension. The Orion 4800's fit and I borrowed a 5000 at the TCS Finals that fit also, but I don't remeber the name on it, but it looked like the same case as the Orions..

New video of the Sportsman round 2

Watch me blow a second place start after only 1 lap!

I came back tho and finished 3rd, again.

Thanks Anthony for posting the video.

Now, anyone have the first round? I actually got to lead a couple laps in that one.
