No problem! All the gang here runs a 27T or a 17.5 with d-drive 103's and similar cars like the Duratrax, Cross ,etc. in 4 and 6 cell. The cup drivers can use any motor they like but this year it is 4 cell only for them. The last cup race in IL. everyone started with 9-12 turn motors and worked up to 19's to keep control with 6 cells. They were so stinking fast one of the hyperdrive cars ripped both airdams off it's wings. It went from great handling racecar to pinball in one turn...very cool. 27T? Have at it!

Thank you for the Help!

Got one more for you.

Can I put Pan Car wheel/tire on a F103? Is there any adaptors to use???
I am also wondering if a Pan Car axle(10L4) will fit in the Bearings on a F103?


I am still waiting for a couple cars to show up the door step

I don't know of any adapters for the rear for pancar wheels. Check with alphacat on this thread. He told me you can drill out the axle holders to use a 10L axle and bearings for the pod. I think on the front he used standard 10L steering blocks and after mounting the springs in different ways he said that "O"rings worked just fine. But then, he has his own carpet track to experiment with stuff. I thought I was hardcore F1 until I met him.
By the way, Go to www.mlpmotorsports.net then click on the F1 icon. He shows the different ways the Japanese drivers are inventing all kinds of suspension tricks on their F1's. Very cool stuff.

Well you can the Tamiya Front Bearings will push into the 1/10 scale pan car front wheels. however you must use a wheel that is made for a none flange bearing. there are stops in the wheel.

I am working on a set of 4 bolt hubs for the Tamiya rear axle.
So you will be able to run the 1/10 scale pan car wheels and tires on the Tamiya.

Next I have made a set of rear hubs and front knuckles and front axles to let you run 12mm hex hub wheels on pan cars Like our New Viper GT10 or cars with the 4 bolt hubs. Like this car here if one wanted to run F201 Rubber wheels and tires. and it will also work for the F103 or F103GT but you need the F103GT rear axle setup and our new kuckles.

This is just one of our New Cars it is the Viper F1 and should be out by the end of Sept 2008

bye see ya next year
I am working on a way to make an Rear Axle fit the F103 or Adapters for the F103 To work with standard pan car Rear tires.

I just got done loading the Front wheels on MXRich's Car ~ the Tamiya Bearings will work in the standard Pan car wheels.

Thank you again for the Info.

I took my Spare F103gt and installed the F103 front spindle and the front bearings out of the GT hub and they look like they will go into a Jaco Pan Car Foam.

I got a car! The F1 warmup race is on the 7th. My hero! Hey, did you fix that other thing you were telling me about? Or do I need to come up there and keep the door locked. I'm not sure why whiplash pulled the pic on that other car. I'll see if I can find one on here. Gotta go! Today is fast electric boat race day and I've found a new way to cheat! I'll let you if I get caught...again.

I think at one point Dan's RC Stuff used to make axle adaptors for Tamiya that took the same bearings as standard pan cars, allowing a standard 1/10 axle.

Not sure if Dan's is still around, maybe there's some NOS out there.

Yep New Car I need to order one part and finish the rear wing mount, So this should work better than that daul chassis F103. This is a Viper F1 with a Tamiya F103 front end on it. (MLP V103)

Good luck on the boat thing. and well we all cheat but they don't call it cheating till you get caught.

Ok The F103 Running on Pan car Foams front and rear.

we went over the fronts they fit and work great.

as for the rear Thanks to MXRick and Aphl, Yes you can drill out the Tamiya F103 Rear Bearing holders. to the size of a normal flanged rear axle bearing for Pan Cars. and with the holes drilled out from the back side of the holder and installed on the F103 not only works good but looks great.

I have not tested them yet but I did run around out front and they work better than the Tamiya foams ~ But the rear is about 6mm wider now and the fronts are the same I did make a set of aluminum spacers to put behind the front wheel, to help shim it out so it works and fits right and looks good.

Pics to come when I and done ok.

Here are pics on our MP3/8 but it has a Tamiya F103 Rear pod the best I can do right now I know my pics suck.

It is the rare occasion when I get something right! My job is to make laps not build stuff. The big tires still go on the back dont they? What's the Aleve for? Did you give the car the sniffles? Or is that a speed secret your hiding?
