Default ABC Type B Diffuser

I just picked up an ABC Type B (Carbon Print) Diffuser for my F103 15th Anniversay. After test fitting it, it would seem this diffuser is meant for this car with a pan car / LeMans body .... correct ? Or, do some of you use this with an F1 body ? I ask because it seems that it will stick out well past the rear wing with an F1 body. I dug around this thread and the web looking for pictures of this diffuser on a car, but could not locate any. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Yeah bro, i got the ABC one too and it sticks out like you mention. From the pics on the web, the TRG one looks to be a bit shorter and tucks in beneath the wing. The ABC one looks kinda weird sticking out the back..

you can order direct from Tamiya. If they give you the price, and it doesnt say "temporarily unavailable, or see your hobby shop" then you can order it direct

Default Finished my f103r tonight.




It is very cool looking... I didn't expect the blue alloy wheel nuts. It is worthy of 15th anniv. edition title, IMO.

It needs a servo, receiver, and esc. It's a shame it will never see a racetrack. There is none in my area.
Now I am thinking about buying another one and keeping it NIB for 20 years or so and see if it will go up in value.
