Hi liljohn, Here are some shots of the F1-08 body on my Cross.

Body's pretty rough, I have mounted mine 5mm furthe backwards on the chasis than factory






Cheers

Thanks for the pics!

I'd have to say yes, Another 5mm forward and it would definately have clearance due to the way that the rear air diffuser is molded right into the top of the body. With respect to the second picture, the soldering tab is rotated about 20 deg clockwise putting the left edge of the tab almost straight up and down. Not quite center to the motor but very close.

Are the Tech Racing TF108, MLP V103 and Cross Fireforce cars more competitive in the classes you see run (you may not have seen the V103, its too new)? I'm now considerting kits beyond the f103RM for something more towards a stock motor class, but still F1. The Cross with its adjustable front suspension looks nice.

Thanks,

John

Hey John, I'm planning on using the 94 tooth spur with a 26 or 27 tooth pinion on mine. I'll use my LRP Compition ESC with 14 or 16 gauge wire to allow the body to sit right. I'm also planning on the kit silver can. I'll post some pics of everything once it done.

I need to get some pics of mine up as they sit unpainted and before I swap electronics Just to show the fitment pains. The ESCs should be here next week, the bodies should be painted. I have to wait for the white wing sets though. I'm still going to try and get a BMW-Sauber paint scheme on them. Tape masking is not going well. I think I'm going to switch to liquid mask over the tape I have laid out and cut around it as a template. Maybe try my hand at airbrushing. For such a simple 3 color job, you'd think it would be easy to lay out and paint! That red stripe is really a PITA .

Did you find the 94 tooth pinion to work better than the stock 63?

John

I just got my Tamiya carbon chassis and aluminum diff joints today. Now I can move onto installing the electronics. Pics of the final roller chassis below.

Hi everyone

As I'm planning to buy a F103 RM, in order to check if an ESC/motor combo I have here would fit, could someone please tell me the stock ratio of the trans? With, if it is possible, stock pinion and spur gear size?
I'm thinking about using 2 Lipo 2S 20C 1350 mAH batteries from an heli, Y plugged (parallel, not serial, so max output *2 and capacity *2, still 7.4V) with an Orion Brushless Touring package, 3100 kV but 180 W at 7.2V. I think that with such a low weight, I would need a very ratio tranny. The car will be used for inside (carpet) race and outside race.
Could someone please tell me which hopups are mandatory for this car?
Thanks for your help

Vyger,

I like all the light weight addons, stability and stiffening components. Is that the motor cooling plate advertised for the GT? I see the low friction plates and oil filled damper too, very nice indeed.

Edit: I wish they'd throw all that stuff into one big kit! Still waiting for the servo mount and turnbuckles you have though.

Thanks liljohn, yes the motor heatsink and shock is the one for the F103GT. It's a spot on match for this car and is allowed in the TCS races Tamiya hosts. The low friction plats I had from years gone by.

Dataz; regarding your question about hopups...I would suggest the heatsink, shock and spring kit for the front end and damper post. That's a really good start. I'd also suggest using bearings everywhere.

The stock gearing supplied in the kit is a 64 tooth spur with a 17 tooth pinion. Your final gear ratio will fluctuate depending on the tire size.

I usually run a 94 tooth spur and 24-28 tooth pinion depending on tire size.

Hey. When you paint the outside cockpit and driver, what paints do you use?

Vyger (Star Trek?)...

Anyway, could you list the hop ups and part numbers you have purchased for your F103RM?

Looks sweet BTW!

Has anyone driven the rubber tires yet? I'm really curious to hear about how they work on asphalt compared to foams.
