The newer body that Chevron makes,the Red Bull type doesn`t have undercut side pods,but look a little wide/square compared to the one you posted a picture of.


i will be using yeah racing 3200 hardcase lipos. i am told they do fit.i dont have them with me at the mo,they are out on loan until i get my 103 running.

Give it a shot as it sounds like you have all of the parts allready,takes about 5 minutes,but dont expect much.
True...but that wouldn't be any different though than doing the tweak screw mod that many people do with the pivot ball rear.

Can the F60 body for the 104 fit on the F103 ?? I'll be using a mini lipo pack so the width shouldn't be an issue. Is the length a problem ?? And will the F60 wings mount to the F103 chassis??
mini lipo pack? i like the sound of that. what capacity is it? i am wanting to use a f60 body on my 103 aswell but the battery mount is to wide

Default F103 rules (but F104 are sure getting closer)

We continue with the Le Mans 24 Minutes after F1 so bring your cars!

Nice, but this would look real ugly on an F1 car. The body sits close to the motor pod, so it would not look aesthetically pleasing to the eye. It might even hurt the handling of the car as well. But it would be perfect for a touring car.

Yeah that is a nice compact and adjustable fan and mount. I have a LRP on my TC, its like a swamp cooler hanging on the motor.

I guess it's mostly on chassis layout and body type. I just know that with the bodies I have with my 103, there is vary little space between the body and motor.

I would like to see how that fan fits on a 104. Body and all.
