You should do this, a big "yes".

Sorry, if this was asked already...

Anyone have a pic of their 103 fitted with the 104 front wing?


I am in need of a front wing and the 104 is the only thing I can get
fast.
Thanks

The wings on both cars are interchangeable.

Westy, what tires did you end up running?
How did they work on the asphalt?
Cars look good.

Nice pictures westy, foam tires work so much better where we race, BUT the rubber tires and rims look so real. We ran the F-201s about 5 years ago, and they looked very realistic with the rubber tires and independent suspension front and rear too bad they didnt work that well.

Hi i ran trg on the front and ride type-A at the back.
Michel ran ride type-s on the front and type A at the back.

I find rubber tires more constitent than foam, and we decided to run rubber tires for the competition.
