Does anyone know if the Civic ff-03 kit come with bearings? The Tamiya page says it has 1050 bearing spec uprights but doesn't say specifically if it come with them. Thanks in advance!

dont 'need' it for my FF03. would like to try it on my TA05v2. the SwayBar mount.. i know its not TCS legal, just wanna try it. not even sure if it will fit. one of my biggest peeves about the TA05 is that the SwayBar rod always rubs the driveshaft since it mounts to the center of the arm. with the FF03 swaybar mount it allows you to mount the rod to the front of the arm.

Hey Manny,

The gearbox is full bearing, the wheel axles are bearings.

The steering and IFS rockers are bronze bushings.

Hope that helps

BTW here is the link to the manual:

I just got this Volvo BTCC body done and I think this is the best looking FF body out there. I'm almost afraid to run this.

That's so true I never wanted a real Volvo. But the touring car version looks great. Now if they would sell a real touring car for the price of a regular Volvo I would think of getting one.

How is everyone enjoying this car? I have a few questions that might not fit the typical bill here, but Ill shoot anyways.

I was offered a challenge to build one of these cars for speed running. Are there enough upgraded parts available to make this car handle high power brushless and big lipos? I noticed most guys here are running mild setups for a competitive class, and it looks like the car might be limited.

Looks great, You should not run it ! I think these old bodies are made in limited quantities so those might not be availabe anymore in the future.

Sweet memories! This one was my first Tamiya body on a FF01 chassis, my first serious RC car.
But it didn't remain in good shape for a long time, maybe 1 month
Then I swapped to an Opel Calibra Cliff

Now on my FF03 I use a Gallardo body (I'm a great Lamborghini fan ) but waiting for a Honda Civic body....

P.S: great pics! I can't attach mine yet...

has anyone tried to use Toyota Corolla WRC shell from TA03F. it has a wheelbase of 237mm which is almost the same length as the short wheelbase for the FF03.
