What is everyone's spring preference(brand) and preference for diff lube. The ride front springs interested me.

Tamiya made them fit by hanging the rear out the back of the body. There are plenty of alternatives from other manufacturers, look for bodies made for the F103.

The only small problem that is easily fixed is the front wings, F103/F104 front wings need to be trimmed a little to fit inside the F101/102 front suspension.

Tamiya recently re-released the Group C chassis, so the front and rear end spare parts for the F101/F102 are now available again.
Thanks for your answer.

Now I can look for a new fine body for my old car....

I use Tamiya front springs, of which in most cases I always use the gold (medium). But I do have a set of Zen Racing springs that I use from time to time. Also, if you can get your hands on some Kyosho 30,000 Diff grease , it works really well on the kingpins. Contact Christian Tabush at reflexracing.net , that's who I get it from if he has it in stock.

Default what ESC for F1/group C?

Ok so i've been looking around for a few weeks now, but the more i read, the more uncertain i get...
Should i buy Novak, tekin, castle or Reventon ??
They all seem to be about the same size, have the same functions and priced very similar...
Reading the forums i feel i read more negative than possitive on all the products.
So what should i choose and why?
As of now I'm leaning against the Reventon R, it looks the part a d the software solution seems clever.

They are all very good and capable ESCs. The Tekin and the Viper have the smallest foot print. The Tekin can be programmed right on the ESC but it is better to get the Hotwire and use a computer. The Viper can be bought with a programming box which makes tuning in the pits easy. The biggest downside on the Viper is the weight as the case is all aluminum. The other ESCs are nice as well but are bigger.

Everyone has their favourites and everyone will avoid anything to do with electrics they had a problem with some time in the past. You won't find any F1s using Castle and no one at my club will use Novak having seen too many of then go bang in the past.

Personal favourite is the Hobbywing Xtreme Stock, although it's not on your list. Of the four you have listed I would only choose the Tekin or Reventon, if you can stretch to the price then go for the Tekin, if your budget isn't that great go for the Reventon.

Questions?? Lotus 98 or 99T

Will a Lotus 98 or 99T body fit over a 104, if it does where can I find one? Tamiya has discontinued!

TamiyaUSA is listing the 99T body and wing parts in stock.
Body http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...uct-id=9338112
Front wing http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...uct-id=9338113
Wing mount http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...uct-id=9114019
Rear wing end plates http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...uct-id=9804457

It should fit on an F104 chassis, you will just end up with the motor pod being 10mm further out the rear of the body.

Default Chassis material for asphalt

What is the best chassis material for a DD (direct drive) F1 on asphalt? FRP or Carbon fiber?
I am switching from a FGX IRS to a DD car this season and want to know what people have been running on slightly bumpy asphalt.
Also are people running different combo's like Carbon main chassis with FRP rear pod and upper deck or other combo's?

Just dont want to waste the money on a new carbon chassis if it is not needed.
