Tamiya re-released a bunch of the touring car bodies when the FF-03 came out. The Volvo 850, Alfa 156, Opel Vectra were offered, possibly more.

I ran a 156 when I had my FF-03.

Thanks I didn't think to look there and Google was letting me down. I need a set of F1 tires and rims so I may as well get it all together.

Default Messing around with shorty packs and low profile servos

Had this idea for awhile. Finally put it together just to mess around with alternate servo mounting. I never liked the servo hanging way off the side. Took it for a quick run today steering seemed good.

Good work. How is the servo mounted? Does it change the balance in terms of oversteer/understeer?

Thanks! I removed the servo mounting tabs from the case and removed the grommet from the servo wire for clearance. It's installed with two small dabs of shoe-goo. It feels mere responsive when I turn in. I've only used it on an unimproved asphalt track so conditions weren't ideal. I have a ff03-pro I'll run it against when I get more time. Had a blast with a friend of mine trading laps with the two cars on Friday. We both felt like the center mounted servo turned in better but the tires weren't the same on the two cars so I'll have to play with it some more.

Default FF03 Spec R diff help

I've done a search on the forum but can't find an answer and hope someone out there can help me. I've resurrected an early FF03 that has the Spec R gear diff but the car came with no driveshafts. The outdrives are way too wide to fit the stock shafts so I guess some sort of blade/cushion/protector (call it what you want) is necessary. But which sort? I've tried the white Tamiya ones from the TRF417v5/TA06 but they're too thick. 3Racing TA05 ones don't work either and Spec-R don't supply any in the diff kit at all which just confuses me even more.

Hello everyone, i want to ask about my ff03r, what tires did you guys use? Bcause mine when using 13.5t with 4.7 final ratio and spool diff the front tire not survive just 6 pack of full batt the tire torn apart outside

Then i tried using sport tuned + 5.7 ratio + 1million cst diff oil still the glue off the tires

Im using volante tires btw

And i want the car competitive, now i can't push all out of the car bcause the tire can't survive

Thank you (I guess thats a "no" to the question whether the Spec-R diff wil fit or not).

Cheers,
Peter
