Im used to driving a V1RRR so any advice for a first time 1/8er would be great.
Here is a list of the needed parts to "update" your '03.
FM507B, Front Bulkheads
FM545 Front Arm Set
(4) BRG008 Bearings
(4) VZ 213, Bearing Cams
FM508B, Rear Bulk heads
FM407B, Brake Lever
FM544-45 Spur Gears
FM543-49 Spur Gears
FM541-20 Pinion Gears
FM540-16 Pinion Gears
I didn't list the new "front sway bar" parts
The gears are much better - don't let the supplier send the older gears - the new gears are much beefier.
We have front belt tensioners - see: empirercracing.com
plus, there is an exploded view of the '05 with part numbers - for reference
I see you are in the UK - have you checked with: http://www.benracing.co.uk
hope this helps,
