I suggest you order from your LHS, troll ebay or order from a foriegn source to get your parts.

I have these parts too, but after suggesting a 40% discount (including shipping) I offered to you on other diff parts you asked about last week, I don't know how anyone can help you other then giving you the parts and installing them for you free of charge.

Does anyone know about the Roche bits? I am thinking about trying some after the TCS race.

Default setup questions

so im having some trouble getting my f103 to hook up the way i would like. was wondering if someone could shed some light on a few things and explain the following to me.

1) What effect does the center shock have on the car? i.e. making it stiffer makes the car _______ putting more preload on it makes the car _____

2) what effect does the friction plate have on the car

3) what effect does the T plate have on the car? running the t plate tight makes the car ______


Im running on a med tracking asphault track and I just have too much steering. I can control it through the infield, its loose but i have to really concentrate on it. but on the straight, when Im full throttle the slightess touch on the steering and the car spins out.

im running the following

HBR med Fronts
HBR soft rears
black springs front
2 orings on the t plate
10k wight diff lube on the friction plate
a 7lb spring on the dampener/shock with 35wt oil

the car was doing well with the stock tires but as they wore down the car pushed really bad. those tires no longer exsist so now im running the hbr ones i listed about.

any input would be greatly appreicated

Dan

Thats cuz the Lightweight one is for an F1 car, the diff on the GT is almost entirely different than the F1. Why dont you just buy my 103GT as a complete chassis and be done with it?
