1 i never bought the 201 i tried this guy's who had it at the track and then a 103 thast someon was selling and i liked the 103 alot better it was smother and better acceleration . both cars were running the rules for the club wich are rubber tires and Mabuchie/johnson stock silver can motors. becasue on our track even a p2k2 or a monster is way to much.
2 how do you manage to handle that much power in your f1 newracer. i ahve tried it once with a 4 cell pack in a parking lot and i couldnt manage it past 1/2 throttle. stearing way to touchie at high speed. i need to put more downforce up front i think.
3 if you want a real F103 driver well il have to get the best driver in the club on here lol he can beet the crap out of everyone by at least 2+ laps and he running club rules and a 103.
4 all in all. yes the 103 dont have camber or toe in in the back and no camber in the front but it dont need it. you put the right spring rate in the front and the right oil/damper/spring combo on the abck and it will grip at full throttle through the corners on almost any track. I run on carpet.
with the 103 you can tell if your set up is right just by listening to it.
if it sticks and dont squeel in the corner you can take the corner faster.
if it spin coming out of corner getting on the gas losen the dif a 8th of turn.
if it spins mid corner soften the front springs and let off the throttle a hare, you never have to use brakes with this car.
but still the 103 is better out of the box compared to a stock 201. my 103 was stock ans so was the 201 i drove, so you can say what ha think. but im just saying what i know from everone that races F1 around here.
