I was afraid that was going to be the answer, they look awful. Hopefully it makes the racing better, not that it was a problem this season

In any case I'm glad the F103R/RMs come with old bodies

The Alpha's are almost ready to sell. Check with alphacat on this site. There will be a website very soon to see them and spend 'yo money. Very fast cars.

Hey Mxrich, would you mind posting up a link when the Alpha site is complete? I know I'd really like to see it, I'm sure other are curious as well.

Also, what diff grease do you use on the balls themselves? And is there any specific reason for this brand choice?
Hey Carking, That's a great idea. I'm seeing quite a few people that are looking for something like that. I can put together a baseline set up. It may take me some time to try (infuses on try) to communicate it in writing. As soon as I get it done I'll post it up on here.

Not a problem! There are actually two cars from Alpha. One is a dedicated 4 cell and the other is a 6 cell that will use 4 cells as well. I will post the site and any info as it comes in. After winning the 2008 F1 Cup he is already getting orders from his buds out there. The peeps like us will have to wait for the site to do the " add to cart" thing. But it should not be much longer.

Is it just me or are F103 kits hard to come by? Anybody know of hobby stores in the US that have Tamiya F103 F1 style kits in stock (GT excluded)? I want to make a wish list for Christmas, but if Tamiya is just teasing everyone and can't deliver F103's to the masses to support a new following, I may change up my list.

I just might have to pick up one of the T body kits. Does anyone have any experience setting up a kyosho indy car? It is the direct drive target/scotch car. Any help would be greatly apreciated. I am running on carpet with 27t and 6 cells with foam tires.

Stellamodels.net has the F103RM with T-body in stock for only $105.... Just add some shipping costs because they are located in Hong Kong.

Check http://www.stellamodels.net/catalog/...oducts_id=3499

I ordered mine from Tower on Tue and got it last night; last night I built all of it except for the electronics and paint.
