Ive been out of the F1 game for a long time. Used to race an original F103 back in the mid 90s but boxed it up and put into storage. Played around with a F201 when it first came out and just didnt like it. Well today I pulled the F103 out put some new foams on and had a blast running around cones with my son. So started searching for a new F1 car so we can do some bashing together. The F113 is really catching my eye, just one thing I havent been able to find out.

Is the battery built into the chassis? Seems like theres no way to get it out. I hate to charge lipo out of my charging bag.

Grind out the bottom of the F104 lower arm, and it's ready.


Now it's legal for UF1 Series, so I can race F113 next UF1 round on Jan 19th.

I can't wait ...

Thanks.
Hi Spring, a couple of questions for you.

(1) How have you liked the F104 front end?

(2) What are the part numbers you used to convert the front end. Looking a doing an order through you guys and want to make sure I have everything. I have put what I thought was right in the shopping cart but doesn't look right. I'm missing something.

That's about all for now. Thanks for your time.

Cheers.

I can only get it out by removing the top deck (four screws).

anyone know where I can order "F113-301/PK Straight Servo Mount" in the US? Found it on 3racings and asiatree's site but would rather support US retailers. And I dont know why they just dont include some plastic ones! Its the only thing keeping me from finishing my chassis.

After really wanting to test the F113 out this weekend and not wanting to buy a new servo and short lipo I started to think........ The mounting looks just like the F103, So I went digging threw the F103 parts bin to dig out my stock servo mount. 30 minutes later and just some trimming of plastic its a perfect fit!
