any of you guys actually done the conversionb yet? i am in the process of it as we speak. i am waiting on the rear axle and front swing arm set from rcmart.
3 things needed...
3Racing (#F103RM-10) Front Suspension For F103RM USD$15.50
3Racing (#F103RM-09) Knuckle Arms For F103RM USD$11.50
3Racing (#F103RM-01/LB) Differential Housing For F103RM USD$17.90
F103GT plus $50 shipped.
this is all that you will need to convert a F103GT to a F1 racer.
misc items incluse body and wings, but no chassis, lower deck, upper etc are required.
there are a few things you need to take into consideration.
1) F103GT kingpins are longer and hold at thte top and bottom keeping the top control arm attatched. if you go with a f103lm pingpin, it is much shorter. and does not connect at the top causing the top control arm to become detatched. the 3 racing arm setdoes 3 things, 1) it connects top and bottom so you can use F103GT on LM, LM on GT w/ no issues. 2) it can adjust castor. 3) you can adjust camber.
**this is the ONLY part that will allow you to adjust camber on this car!
2) the F103LM knuckle has a cylindrical portion that allows the use for a bearing or bushing. if you try this on the GT, it wont fit, will wobble and be horrible to drive on.
3) the Hexes are much larger on the F103LM than the GT. that is why the rear wheels wont fit. the only way to fix this is to get the LM rear axle set.
it is not cheaper to buy an LM, you will end up hopping up the LM anyways with these parts.
If you have a GT convert it, if you have none, Get a LM.
