This is the one I remember.
Kyoshos' first RC F1 had this scheme.

the limiting part is the king pin which is always just right ie 'too short' to allow much adjustment.

The Kyosho is a Jordan and the lower picture is the Tyrrell.

The Tamiya body is the Tyrrell. Yamaha just made the engines,and have never made a complete car.

Cheerz
This is how to make your own height adjustable uprights.

Kawada and Square both make height adjustable uprights in Alloy,but they bend and break rather easy. I have been running cut down Tamiya uprights for 2 years and havent broke one yet.

May Sound odd, but have you considered a bike paint scheme? Maybe a Rossi version!

Default Tires ARRRRG!

1) Anyone remember what the Ride compounds were? If I recall correctly they were the opposite of the Tamiya tires and that A hot tire and B was the cold tire?

2) Anyone try the TRG tires? I see RC Market has some showing in stock.

3) Anyone compare the F10 wheels/tires to the F103? In the pics they look like the same dimensions.

Same as Tamiya tires as far as hot cold, but the later vers.Ride brand for F103 have grooves.
2) Anyone try the TRG tires? I see RC Market has some showing in stock.
I have heard they are ok, not as grippy as Ride
3) Anyone compare the F10 wheels/tires to the F103? In the pics they look like the same dimensions.
The New Ride tires for the 104/F10 are dimensioned for the late model F1, i.e. larger dia front, and larger dia narrow rear.

Default F60 body on F103?

Does the F60 body fit the F103? Not sure if the narrow body on the back side will fit of the chassis area where the battery gets installed. Any ideas?

Lately I have been switching my front tires(foam pre-mounts) from side to side after each qualifing run and main run. Tring to keep them a little closer in size as one side seems to wear down faster,although the coning problem is still there they seem to stay closer in size without having to true them. The rears really dont seem to have this problem as bad maybe just a 1/2mm difference after a few weeks pracitce and racing. Do any of you guys do this or is it just overkill?

The F60 body is long and narrow,so it doesnt fit the F103. You could do hack job on it if its the only body you can find,but the batteries will stick out the sides and the rear of the body will have to be cut short to have the nose match up with the front wing.

Its best to stick with bodies that are made for the F103.
