In stock form (F10 out of the box with rubber tires) that is correct as it is set up for the 12mm hex like a 4wd touring car. What we are talking about is with the foam tire conversion. The foam tire conversion changes the front and rear axles. And that is what we are talking about.

yeah, what he said.

the conversion cost me $80 shipped, but upgrades alot. only think I dont understand is why is everything orange and they include purple washers!?!??!?! I know Axial sells orange washers in .5,1,2,4 increnments, but the ID is too small for the kingpin.

I'm thinking about getting and mounting rear diffuser on my F109.
Does it worth it or not? If it does, which one to get?

Don't think anyone in my country have heard of that conversion?
but then no one runs the HPI at places I go to.

rear diffusers make a real good rear bumper , stops the spur gear getting damaged ,when your mate hits you in the rear,

That's very nice , but I'm after more rear grip without adding weight and I hoped that diffuser will help with that. I just wanted to make sure it does what I want.

All in all I'm trying to go fast enough so others will be far behind me and I won't need bumper property of diffuser

And here I was thinking, that's what the wheels and rear wing were for. Looks like I learned something new today

So I've ordered TRG diffuser from ebay page of RCmart for $6.5 with free postage. I've decided to try it on my own and I'll see how good it is.

abc hobby makes them also,. they have different styles that are meant to manipulate the airflow differently. Because of the base of the wing reaches the nearly the base of the t bar, there may be some modification needed to get it to fit properly.

best part is, there is an ebay vendor that sells these in california! someone carries them in the US, so no 14 day shipping!

Yeah I know that ABC makes them as well, just TRG looked a bit cooler



I bought clear version as it was cheaper and I don't fancy graphite look on it.
To ebay vendor from california - it's no help for me as European resident

Default Advice

I'll be putting together a new F103RM kit; is there something in particular that needs attention? never own a F1 car, so any tips on how to make the car handle good out of the box will be appreciated.

I think I saw different T-Bar stiffness for the F104, are there any for the F103?

Thanks
