What tires are you able to use? Foam or rubber? If you can use foam, where are you getting them, I can't seem to find them anywhere. I went to the Tamiya website and all they have are pre-mounted fronts!
Looking for all 4. Soft rears and medium fronts!
Thanks in advance!

Default Gearing

I just picked up a F103 for some 2wd action.

What gear ratio / rollout should I use?

We will be running rubber 1/10 tyres Sorex 28/32/36 (63mm) but I was wondering what would be a good starting point for a 540 Silver Can Motor (Johnson/Muchabu)?

Gearing for a 27t would also be helpfull.

Default Setup Guide

Hey guys, Ben from Australia here.

Is there a good setup manual or web site for the F103?

Didn't the last Kyosho car try a front end like this? And wasn't it like super brittle????

Oh well, guess my 15th Anniversary car gets turned into a shelf queen sooner rather than later.
