I bought the F103GT heat sink, 0.4 spur set, and special TRF damper as well as the old F103 carbon rear axle for weight. If you are going to be at Tamiya on Saturday, I will bring my F103GT out and see what we got. I am interested in doing the exhibition class, but don't know yet. I am using a Corvette body.
For the tires, I will be using B3s with green inserts. I don't think going with blue would be good since the weather will be in the 80s and blacks are way too firm for this chassis no matter what weather.
The problem I have with the graphite chassis is that it makes the chassis almost too stiff. It doesn't flex enough with that chassis and makes it impossible to setup well.
I am still trying to figure out the gearing for the silver can, but I tend to run black can for fun. What gears are you guys using for the stock silvercans? I am running with the Tamiya 0.4 pitch set if that helps. I just need a good starting point for it.
