Saddly, no one really has spares or a good supply source.

Does anyone know where I can buy the TRG carbon F1 body?

I found it on this link:
http://www.rceasy.com/ch2/2008/10/24...arbon-f1-body/

I would like to get this body for my F103R. Please help me out.

yeah the solder tabs fouled on the body when the t-plate rolled side to side..

i've ended up cutting out the rear left side of the body (above the motor tabs) slightly higher than the right side to allow for the t-plate to roll..

i've also used 12AWG wire which might be overkill for the 13.5 thats in there, this would save room and weight if you used a smaller gauge wire like 14/16AWG..

can anyone tell me what the TRG "Superion" tyres are for? that is, what makes them different to the non-superion rubbers?
ideally i'd like to know if they are suited to different temperature range (and what that is) or surface (and what that is) etc?

Hey Madjack!

Sweet lookin cars. How's that Benetton working for you? I tried the B195 before and didn't really care for it. But I've never run the B192. The Sauber should be dialed with foam tires. I'm not sure about the new chassis, maybe if it doesn't work on the R chassis you could switch it to the older chassis next to it.

Good luck at the race in a couple of weeks. I'd love to race with you at a TCS...good times....very good times.

Hey Mark, the car looks great! I like the wings, are those the ones from 3Racing? Also, what tires and wheels are those? It would be nice to not have to true tires.

Let me know when you get a chance.

The 192 works OK when coupled with the Lotus 107 rear wing

*Sauber is an o-ring car and works well
*Benetton is a pivot ball car... and is a work in progress

You need to make that trip to the track!
