How do we think the development of the 180mm cars is coming along now were a few years into them?

Have they caught up to the 200mm F103 in terms of pace yet?

Because I've seen lots of comments thrown around about the Pit Shimizu tires being much better than anything available for the F103? (yet Pits are available for f103s are they not??)

I've seen some really quick F104s recently they look dialed..

Anyone got an opinion on this?

I just ordered three of them from hkshobby.com. They are the 3racing brand adapter and they fit perfectly part number F103RM-11. Hopefully I did not clean them out!

hopefully the guy that ordered before you didn't clean them out, and they really are in stock. Good luck! I use the 3racing gear adapter, and its a perfect fit. Also the one I gave you long ago for your F103 was a 3racing. So as long as they actually get shipped to you, you ll be in good shape. I'm scared to order.

I've been looking for that darn adapter for a month now. Hopefully, in the very near future I will find one. I never thought finding such a small part like this would be impossible.

I've seen the ones on Ebay. I'm just a little nervous about ordering something out of Japan. I was hoping to find it here in the states first.

If we in the UK only stuck to UK hobby shops we would never have anything.

To be honest I'm more nervous about buying from US shops than I am from major shops in Hong Kong or Japan.

Default 21.5 options

Now that TCS is moving F1 to 21.5 I am converting my F1s over to BL and am curious what motors & speed controls others have found to be the "hot ticket" in F1? Roughly how much motor timing and with what gearing range has everyone been using?

LOL James & Terry

If I can buy the F1 kit I need in the UK then I will. There are two or three shops that are proving very good for F109 parts, and one source of older Tamiya parts that's been good for wings.

That said my GT car comes from CEFX ordered from Josh's kit direct. And I've had lots of other orders come from US, Japanese and other Far East shops.

You'll need to think about customers charges...
