so i finaly ran my 109 at the track. looked pretty good. i used a 30t pinion and it was ok at my track. i had a chance to run with some 104's and 103 anvs.
Did you by chance run at SWR last night? Would you recommened it as an equal competitor to the 103's and 104's? I really like this car. It appears to be well thought out in the design aspect. For $125, it looks like something worth trying. I'm hoping SWR will get a few in.
Thanks,
Steve

wow, i just recieved my f109 in the mail and this thing is sweet!!!! Which is better to run, a standard servo or a low profile. It looks to me that a low profile servo might be the best way to go.. just not sure.......

Hi experts,
I'm thinking about F109 for our local races and I wasn't able to find out the F109 manual in pdf. My question is can I use the tamiya f103 rims (F1 rims but no 24mm) for the F109. We will run on rubber tires.

Thanks a lot

Thanks for the offer Ramon.
But really, i just want to see one run, or at least hear your feedback with regards to the other cars. I'm pretty set on this car as of now, just hoping SWR can get some.

Sounds good. I bunch of F1's on NorCal's smaller carpet track would be a blast too!

Yes.. the F103 rims are a direct fit. There are several Manufacturers that make rubber tires and rims. Like Ride, Square, Zen etc.

Questions??

In fact i will starting build my car tomorrow.
Could anybody if is necessary to sanding and glueing the edge of the FRP chassis, i think at least is not need to sanding it, is it?
I think this chassis doesn't fit all LIPOs due the size, for example my SMC MR special 4700 40c battery, is it?

Best regards

Questions??

Could anybody answer me the questions which i made before?

About another thng, how about if i change using F104 diff kit in mi F109, in fact i didn't like that conventional diff kit which must remove those thrust bearing to take off the right wheel.

Will F104 diff kit will change the wheel base, i guess the F104 chassis wheelbase is shorter due the all new tyre set, isn't it?

Best regards

You will not be able to fit the F104 diff unit on to the 3racing shaft unless you cut the shaft down in length.
I have taken the whole back axle out of the unused F104 and put it in the F109, and with F103 Rubber wheels on it is still 200mm.

Still building kit. seems like so many e-clips

No no, i will change all the diff unit, included using F104 carbon shaft.
If that works?
About other thing, i want to know if work using frp antenna, for example the Xray 1 for 1/12 chassis, is worthy to using?
And could somebody tell me if the aluminium servo mount of 3racing for f103 could put in f109?

I just started putting together my F-109. And it seems like some stuff in the manual might be labled wrong. can someone tell me which grease is for the ball diff? either the clear grease or the silver grease. So far I am very impressed with this model.
