Thanks in advance.
If you're running Canadian TCS, as of right now you can use any Tamiya tire, so Type A for carpet/cold surface and Type B for outdoor/hot surface. If you can get the new type C carpet tires, they will likely be the way to go, though they haven't been released yet.

Good luck, and enjoy. We had the first Candian TCS race with the FF-03 class this past weekend. It was great fun, and the cars all ran fast and were fun to drive. Nice to see a variety of bodies running around too.

Yes, sorry, I forgot to mention that this will be for the Canadian TCS here in BC, Canada. Do you happen to have any part numbers for the type A tires? I just bought my FF03 Pro so I don't have tires as of yet.

Thanks!

Default Weight

I was looking at the 2011 rules for TCS, and although they dont apply to me in any way, shape or form, I found some points interesting...
1) Pre-mounted tires only - Is this a good thing or bad thing? If the price is right....good thing!
2) No weight has been specified for the class.....and f I go back and check the current rules, it seems there was no weight limit either...(unless I am blind) I found an unofficial rule that says the weight needs to be no less than 1400g.

Does anyone add weight to this car when running Lipo? I found with a Turnigy 4000mah lipo, I have to add about 60g to get it up to that weight (1400g)..and mine is the std FF03 with Civic body set....

Thanks.
Thanks for the rely NiMo

Does anyone know if the tao5 or mo5 alu outdrives will work in the ff03, our local supplier is out of stock till end of Jan.

Info from another guy saying I should turn the diff the wrong way round this will also help the diff coming loose, the manual is the wrong way round......any thoughts.

Why are some using the 416 bolt and nut.

Thanks

Carson Scirocco with Tech racing rear wing and painted everything except lights. It's a bit wide for the FF but impressed with the details. Seems to be PET rather than Lexan though.

Looks good, but they are very fragile. Never thought of them as PET but that might explain things. Ordered one finished painted for my M05 and it lasted only one raceday. Shame as it drove well and looked good also.
I will avoid them in the future.

Partnumber for the wing or where i can get it, please?

The plastic retainer (part 1 on K tree) is fragile and if the diff is too tight it will crack. The 2mm diff nut also has a habit of stripping in a tight diff.

The 416 lock nut is much more reliable.

There are 2 types:

TE0036
TE0037

Package includes 1 wide and 1 narrow wing. Used the narrow one and cut it down to look like a Super 2000 wing.
