If there is anyone that has done the f1r conversion with an f103 please pm me. I'm trying to figure out what parts on the f103 can still be used

I just tried. About the only useful part is the upgraded damper if you have one. The rear pod will not allow for a low enough ride height setting, so I ended up getting all F104 parts from TQ. I used both F104 motor pod kits from 3 racing a Tamiya F104 steel axle, the 3 racing F104 diff and clamp hub. At that point all I needed was the complete Tamiya front end and a damper.

Thanks for posting that. It does look a little big, but it's a very admirable effort nonetheless. Do you have any other info on this body? It looks like a one off by a talented model maker.

@aarcobra, thanks. I'll contact F1Paintlab, but I expect I'm going to be left looking for something used. I appreciate your contacting your friend in Georgia.

Scott,
I still have two Rabbit conversions in stock, let me know if you are interested

I'm surprised Tamiya doesn't do something like that! I would love to see the Lotus 49, the Gurney Weslake Eagle, the Ferrari, Honda, BRM, etc. from that era!!

I want to make a Nissan Deltawing. I have an old (original) HPI F1 car that I can use the main chassis plate and rear end for donors. I still have the tuning spring NIP. Fabbing a new front suspension shouldn't be hard. The body, however.........

Hey guys, how can I control the amount of weight transfer to the front tires. The front end digs into much when off throttle entering a hairpin turn.

F103RM setup

Front - Gold Springs 10k lube - 0.5 toe
Rear - 35 wt oil, TRG Black spring with white marking.
Ride height 4 mm front and rear. droop 3 mm

Front black springs makes the car to edgy.

No traction compound is being used on this setup.

Have no fear my friend! Already in the planning stages and I have a bud that can help with the body! Just too many things to do and not enough energy. I must pick a few and follow thru!!! ;-)

mine started out as an stock F103 sauber from 1995, but there is not nothing original left.



My Rear pod is 3 Racing F103 version with F104 diff that i was running on the 103,up front the carbon F103 front end with Tamiya alloy steering arms,
I also used Associated titanium turnbuckles and ball cups so there is no steering play.
I used an Associated TC6.1 damper as i had some spares new in their packet still.

I use the F103 tyres, and ride height is fine.

Beth.

With F103 tires the ride height will be fine...but if you do the full conversion to F104 suspension and tires then you will not be able to get the rear ride height low enough with F104 tires.
