One more note of interest, I am VERY EXCITED to announce that Alpha RC F1 has signed on to sponsor the F1 exhibition class at the Champs this year!!!

Any commercially available F1 Chassis: Alpha, CRC, Tamiya, 3Racing, Cross, Kyosho, HPI, TRG, etc. is eligible. It will be a 210mm max width, foam tire, 2-cell Lipo, Handout silver can class. Looking at the F1 threads here on RCTech, it should be KILLER!!! Can't wait!!

you might able to find some of those older wheel dots for 1/12th scale cars.

Would love to see someone post picture for the mid 90s Williams Renault body (when Williams was winning races!) or Mild Seven Beneton (Schumacher before he switched to Ferrari).

Hi, I have a F103RM and was having serious problems with rear traction on the asphelt track I race on. We run rubber tyres only at our track and silver can motors(going brushless soon). I have finally got a set of RIDE tyres and they are awesome, heaps better the the Tamiya A's or TRG qualifers.

I have seen a F103 not using the rear friction plates and running the shock directly to the motor mount.
In what way would this help?
With side to side movement(twist) how much should I allow(if any)?

I am the only one at our track with a F103 everyone else runs F104's, they were kicking my butt till I got the RIDE tyres. So any usefull advice would be a real help.
Thanks.

I think you've learned your first lession in car setup. Tires make all the difference. Now the friction plates are there to loosen or tighten up the car. And the center shock is for rear bite. The T-plate suspension also changes the handling characteristics of the car. You have the option of using the ball or O-ring setup. The O-ring setup gives you more tuning options and allows you to fit a wider range of battery types.
