Thanks in advance.
I have a master set, I am in the middle of a move here and I guess in about 2 to 3 weeks I can see if our decal guy can make a few sets.

So if you email here [email protected]

back in the Thread we did cover this,


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

we went over the fronts they fit and work great.

http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...akes-em-6.html

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.

I'm not Marty, but I'm pretty sure that the V103 has a pan car style rear axle that allows it to use 1/10th pan car tires.

As far as race pics, yes I took some and they will be up soon.

Yes The V103 is a Pan car rear axle setup not Tamiya.

Ok go here http://picasaweb.google.com/mlpmotor...F103RMUpgrade# ok I was working on this for my son I took it back out of the box and took a few pics. I am running GRP front tires with the F103 front bearings in them and spacers to keep the wheel true on the axle.

The Rear I am running GRP Tires and a CRC Genx 10 setup works the best and is centered with the Tamiya F103 rear pod it was easy I just drilled out the Tamiya height adjuster to fit the 1/10 scale Pan car axle bearings and installed them back in the pod setup in reverse so the little 1/4 moon shapes are pointing out not in like the F103.

Plus I would think with todays economy I know it is hard to get the funds up for a new car.

So if you have a F103 or a F103RM you can do this easy just order the CRC rear axle parts and the GRP tires or I would go with Jaco they are easy to get.

Maybe after we finish with the move and get things running at 100% around here I might put together a Kit for your F103 & Rm to run these wheels and tires and also will add it to our MLP MP 3/8 Upgrade kit for the F103 ok.

This will not make your F103 or RM a V103 but it will give you better rear traction and better gearing.

Could you list the parts needed to convert the rear pod for a CRC rear axle?
And do you know where they have theese parts in stock?


Thank you

What companies make diffusers for F1's? I would like to to get one if they actually work. I thought i saw a carbon fiber one on a pic.

Any help is appreciated

Time to stop talking and start racing! We will be hosting some F1 events in Southern Illinois, Chattanooga, TN and Dalton, GA. There is also a chance to bring it to Southern Ohio also. Keep watching here for info. All you guys have to do is the three "ups" show up, signup, and lineup! Are we ready to race?

Now your cooking! Both of the Corally's, new and old versions are great cars. We run 2wd and 4wd together also with 2wd using 27T or 17.5 and 4wd's with 19T or 13.5. For 2009 we will be doing some longer mains with 540 silver cans in the 2wd's and 27T in the 4wd cars. Should be a lot of fun in between the normal F1 series races. Seems to be catching on in a lot of places now. In the near future we will have a website to purchase several brands of F1 cars to choose from and parts. Keep an eye open here for info. So far it looks like the 2009 F1 builders cup may be in Chattanooga,TN but that could change if a better deal/location pops up. Any of you guys seen the new Tamiya F103 anniversary edition?...very nice car.
