Trunbuckels and shock are the first things I replaced. I got a nice black damper and trunbuckels. Now I'm just hunting for a good body to replace that generic one. All in all, it's a nice kit that won't brake the bank.

So I take the answer is yes. Same damper/shaft length as the touring cars.

I put the stock F103 shock to my TC4 shock, and they are roughly the same length. So, it's worth a shot.

1. The damper/shock is the first thing I replaced.

2. You usually need to gear your pinions higher if you'er going brushless. You can find 103 pinions at online stores.

3. Re-Model? don't really know...

You might have trouble with the upper deck, if your ESC is too high. You'll need a lower profile ESC if you want to fit that upper deck.

Also go with a bigger pinion(the silver one).

Default F103RM Build w/ Hop-ups

Hey all! I'm new here. This is my F103RM. I've put a few of the new hop-ups from Tamiya on the car. I used the new carbon fiber upper deck, aluminum servon mounts, aluminum motor mount, TRF shock, the new aluminum wheel nuts for the F103. The upper deck comes with the blue aluminum body mounts, 1mm spacers that go between the upper deck and the battery bulk heads, and a blue aluminum shock post. I mounted that in the car so it could be seen, but I used the raised shock mount. The kit comes witht the option of the ball pivot t-plate or the original O-ring style t-plate mount. I chose to use the original O-ring style. I thought that was pretty cool of Tamiya to include both as a tuning option. I also added the new TRF titanium turnbuckles. Plus I threw in a few blue screws and other stuff.

I hope you all enjoy it. I can't wait to run it.

Thanks!

Yes, that's the F103gt motor mount. The original rideheight adjustable mount was purple (I don't know why they picked that color). It bolts right in, but you don't use the spacers between the motor pod and the t-plate.

As for the electronics, I've used the LRP Compition ESC's and the Novak Cyclone. They both fit with no problem at all. The receiver should work as long as it's about the same size as the Futaba FM, like a R153F. It all fits under the upper deck no problem. I've never tried a brushless system so I can't comment on that.

I hope this helps and good luck.

Well, it's not like it has a gear box persay. It's direct drive, so in my opinion yes. As long as your gear mesh is set correctly it shouldn't be a problem. You'll just have to crank down on the diff. I'd suggest using Tamiya's thrust assembly bearing, instead of the kit supplied one. Just my .02 cents.
