What parts are needed to convert to a F103 front end? and are any mods required?

My F133 with the Vodafore McLaren body, moved the posts to the battery holder and 1.5mm washers in the tail to move it back a bit.

Hmm.. Im a new user, and I have been out of the r/c world for about 10 years., and am getting back into it now. Ive been doing a lot of reading across this forum and others in regards to the f113 as its peaking my interest. This is always the question that is begging an answer, but truly would take some practice to answer.

Does the f113 handle better than its FGX ? the fgx has IRS, and has an hopup kit for the front. However, from a designer POV. The COG on the the GFX will be higher up than the f113, not to mention it appears the FGX weighs a bit more due to added mechanisms, as well as more bearings and gearing friction losses in the drive-train. The f113 will have the upper hand in speed no questions asked. But what about handling ? the f113 is wider, lower to the ground for COG. Has anyone here had/have both cars and thoroughly tested/experimented with them ? What are peoples thoughts and opinions ?

Unfortunately, I can't comment on f113 cause I only went through fgx.
but, based on my experience on fgx, the kit quality was a bit disappointing. However it was very interesting car for sure in terms of mechanism.

Default Ball Diff Grease

Hey guys, the manual doesn't say to use any, but do you recommend using any grease when building the ball diff?

This is my first F1 car. For my other cars always the manual always says to put silicon grease.

Any other tips for me will be greatly appreciated!
