What about the chassis? does it need to be changed (I am running F103RM).
Yep, but luckly it's an easy part to find, if not a little expensive.

I am using an LM chassis and so I do not think you need to change a new chassis.

I have just checked that the front knuckles will fit my LM front suspension arms and so I do not see any problems in fitting the RM front suspension arms. From the manual, they both look to be the same. The GT front suspension arms pivots, hence changing the camber as the suspension compresses. I do not see that as a benefit as there is a lot of movement around the pivot pin. Better to use your RM arms. I am going to change my front arms back to the original. I am using 3 Racing arms and front knuckles and I had to do minor dremel work.

My custom LM with 12mm hex wheel adaptors ... a bit untidy compared to some other chassis out here. No time to clean up yet after last Sunday's race and I have another race this Sunday if the weather holds.

front

Note:
Even after all this, the car is still not as quick as the CRCs or Associateds but it is still something special as I know I can just put an F1 shell on anytime. well ... after swapping the bumper for the front wing and putting the rear wing back on ...

I just ordered a M-body from mushroom last week, and it's coming to my home at this moment...

You can try the Blade FW18 body, or chevron f108/f109 body as substitute

got the package with the hinged T-bar as well.

the battery mount is also Yeah Racing which is wider, and has a 'ball' mount with the T-bar, and takes Lipos with room to spare.

not as a complete bodyset ...

the body with the drivers head - Zen
and I guess you can pretty much use whatever front and rear wings you like ... I have a set of 'TRG advance', which you can vary the angle of the rear wing and it looks a bit more simple and dated, without the many angles and curves and additional aerodynamic winglets etc ... if you know what i mean ...

have not painted it or mounted it yet ...

May fit, because it's intended for F103, but I didn't tested myself.


I'm sorry about your/my M-body. I promise you the body will have a succesfuul racing history (but on De La Rosa's jaguar decals) here in Spain

The Jordan 191 front wing is made for the F102.You will need to cut the two holes off the side of the wing to make it fit.

Just a heads-up fellas,you can "bend" a graphite axle with out it actually breaking. I had this happen last Sunday at our F-1 race. I "touched" a board with the front end and I guess the rear swung around a hit the board too. Picked up a wierd gear noise, that turned out to be the axel after changeing the spur and pinion gears.
