Diffs and bulkheads most likely. Cant see the arms being the same as it is a Mini ... narrow compare to a TC

The rubber tyres for the F104 are a very recent release from Tamiya, but there's a healthier range of rubber available for the F103. rcmarket.com.hk appear to carry a few different brands and there's quite a few other sources. With a bit of transplanting, you can probably fit the F103GT hubs/axles and run touring car wheels/tyres, but that kinda spoils the F1 look

Go hunt for the F103 thread on rctech and you might find some other hints as to which tyres work well.

Also, Rubedube might have some pointers...
Well I spose the 1st Q is does the 109 use the sames wheels as the 103 or the 104? I used to run Tamiya type B's on the 103 years ago and they both lastest a decent amount of runs and worked decently. If its very cold the type A's would work but at SMA I imagine type B's all year round would be great.

It would prolly be worth looking into a set of rules to keep the class cheap like 17.5 or slower grunt only. Mayb Control rubberz as this keeps the pace more even. Mayb even a set gear ratio to keep speeds the same. Anyway as long as the learning curve is not too big the class should do well.

As far as I know, the 109 has good parts interoperability with the 103. Some people are running 103 front-ends on their 109's. Check out the F109 thread for more insight.

Right now, Tamiya haven't released A or B rubbers for the 104, pretty much standard kit tyres. To be fair, they don't seem quite as hard as typical kit rubber. The good news is that now they've released rims that will take rubber tyres, more will follow...

I'm having a ball with my car - it's very different from the TC and more numbers will make it even more fun.

Troy ,sorry you miss understand ,I know what your saying.
I been pushing for a cheap class for ages .
But no one seems to want it ,Let alone the manufactures,
They just dropped the car weight so its back to who ever can afford the most expensive exotic light weight car ,last year was compeditve cause most cars had the same weight.
Ive pushed for hobby wing type pakages but I get the old theyll be to fast for newbies ,we got novice for newbies .and god forbid they faster than stock,we cant have something thats fast and cheap.And mostly we cant have ppl haveing fun cheaply.end of rant.No fun NO membership something to remember

Smile New Member to Sydney

To All,

Moving to Sydney at the end of Jan, and I am looking for a RC Club or two that I can race at.
I have been racing at a family based club, and am running a Kyosho VOne SIII (with chasis and suspension upgrades) and standardl engine (GXR15) at this stage.
I also have a Tamiya M03 Mini, with a Hobbywing Brushless system.

Do you guys support these categories?

Thanks

Parko

The mini will be perfect, we have around 8 people running eveytime in mini. But for nitro we don't seem to run that as much nowadays.
