Default R1wurks Dual fan setup

This would be perfect for GTP/LMP bodies. Nice product!

Waste of money for an F1 car and brushless motor. My brushless is only mildly warm after 5 minutes of racing.

Agree with previous posts that it would look ugly on an F1.

If you are racing check with the members at your local track what works best for the track. The weight distribution of the two cars is totally different and particularly for the F104 what works at one track may not work at another.

The F103 was designed with rubber tyres and asphalt in mind.
The F104 with foams and carpet.

In my home track (large outdoor asphalt), my 103 runs as well if not better than the bunch of 104's of the other guys.

Actually the F103 was designed with foam tires. The rubber tires did not come out for the F103 until several years after it was first introduced. Pan cars in general do better on a foam tire than on a rubber tire if given enough grip and both cars are a type of pan car.

If the grip is high enough to run foam tires...the F103 being wider and shorter wheel base will be quicker through the corners. But if grip is low and rubber tires are being used than it could go either way. At our track the rubber tires made for the F104 get better grip so they generally do better than the F103 on rubber tires.

Hi, what brushless motor (turns) would you sugest for a controlled class? Is 17.5t too fast? We will be using f103's & f104's on asphelt with rubber tyres.
Thanks

Depending on the size track a 17.5 may be fine...but to be a more controlled class maybe look at a 21.5 from the VTA series or a 25.5.

We run a f1 17.5 competition, the speed is great. around 70kph.
The cars that we run are; F103, F104, TRG109, 3R-F109, HPI F10, Corally, Selfbuild.
The tires that we use are from Ride and TRG.

Default F103 Body ??? Has anyone seen this before ?

Hi, f103ers,
I just started out with Pancars and found a F103 together with this body:Tamiya F103 Forum-img_2680.jpg. Previous owner could not comment on it...

When searching I could only find the F103 with the Audi R8 Spyder type body(58247), not this Audi R8C closed body type.

Is it another brand in the end ?

I want to know what I got before I wreck it

ideas, anyone ?
cheers, Stefan
