@ Cuda/SCD - I will show @ OCRC if u guys will be there. gimme' some notice because of the drive to get into OC. For sure @ BCR if I don't hear anything back.

I need a taller pinion (26t, 27t) for Surf City someone let me borrow or buy one off of 'em? You would think Ultimate would notice they need to stock w/ how kits are selling and the way I hound 'em.

Cuda, ygpm.

I'll be there tomorrow, Craig, but around noon 'cause of Saturday morning class. And bring you EZ up for Sunday for all three of us. If you're getting a taller pinion, be sure to place a fan on your F103 as a precaution like I did.

erm, help?

^hmmm, try the 25 in back and if that doesn't do anything hopefully you have a newer Futaba radio... I slowed down my input and return speed on steering signal but I believe those are Futaba specific parameters.

Most are only saucing half to a third on the fronts as well. Oh, and make sure your steering ball joints/cups are placed below the steering knuckle to help eliminate bump steer.

Hope that helps!

Cuda - u can have one of the smaller bottles of Jack the crack I have been horden'

Like I told Craig, I'll be heading to OCRC after Saturday morning class. Hope you guys will be there 'cause it will feel lonely without other F1's. There were only 2 last Tuesday.

Default F103 15th with F104 front suspension and wheels

Here is my F103 15th with F104 front suspension and rear diff.
I installed the F103L wheels/tires to how much different width.
I'll run with F104 wheels/Tires tomorrow and will find out the car handling.

The F104 front suspension and tires the car had a lot of steering.
I turned the EPA for steering down to 50 and still had too much. I used the F104 kit spring, may be try with harder spring next time...

Yes! You need the F014 servo mounting or you could cut the F103 servo mounting at lower part.
Also, you need to cut the body to fit with new front suspension.
