Anyone know if these LiPO's will fit in the F103r?

IP5000 Intellect 30C Lipo Battery Pack - 7.4V (w/ hard case)

SMC C-Max 40C+ (5200mAh) ( I know this one isn't TCS legal)

Thunder Power Pro Race 40C (5000mAh)

Thanks!

Default f103 15th parts question

Just a Tamiya newb Question. Do they not have exact replacements for the front arm? The spare part number is for regular plastic arms and not the carbon arm set that is in the 15th anniv. kit. Also what about the king pins? Can't find a replacement part number for those either. Just trying to get some spares ready.

The only front end you can order is 50503 right now. The king pins come in parts bag B. Other companies make them aftermarket. I just put my RM back to stock last night with parts bags B and C. It wasn't fun sourcing the parts, but RC Champ was able to order them separately straight from Tamiya. I'd give that a try myself and see if you can come up with those parts.

TRG make carbon reinforced front arms that look a fair bit like the F103R arms

Not sure if I ever posted this here or not. Here is the F103 I got for Christmas. I put it together just after Christmas but I don't think I ever got around to posting it here. I decided to just go with an all black paint job because this body is going to be my beater body, I've got another body sitting around waiting for a more detailed paint job.

Man I love this freaking car!!!! I ran it for the second time this Tuesday and WAAAAAA!!! I used a lipo in it this time, and my rollout was pretty high, but my temps were low (125f) 93/30 54dia 54.69 rollout I also tried 93/32 but ran out of carpet LOL (Silver can).

I found a big thing with this car is to keep a realy smooth cornering line. I was running it against the 10.5 rubber sedans and was only off the TQ by a lap, but qualified 5th over all, didnt race the main.

Cant wait for tcs (canadian) this weekend.
