Default f103 bearing size

Does anybody know what the 3 different bearing sizes are for a F103?

1.Take the larger peice with the five sided hex

2. With your hobby knife cut off the rounded peice at the base of the hex(just continue to score until cut through until you can remove the rounded part)

3. remove your rear axle

4. Choose your kimbrough spur that you would like to use.

5. Insert diff balls( use the associated balls) you can use 12 diff balls on this instead of having the five or six that Tamiya uses, they will now ride in a different spot on the rings.

6. Take your Kimbrough spur gear and insert the peice that you have just cut off into the bearing hole of the spur gear. You will no longer need the bearing in the middle of the gear......may sound crazy to some of you but this does actually work really well.

7. Now slide the gear over the axle and set your diff. You can now use any gear ratio that you would like be it with a 48p or 64p gear.

8. You will have one of these hex adapters left when you are finished with this project. You can dircard the two other small adapter or do like I did and find someone that runs this truck and gave them to them...LOL and you will also have an extra hex for the spur adapter.

Let me know how this ends up working for you guys.....GOOD LUCK
Or just use this spur gear for $4.79 (as posted by robk previously):

or
http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXN136&P=7

Best part is you can use the adapter again and again on other spurs.

Oh wow! I think my hobby shop might have that spur gear. That peice is the only thing you will need. That is the exact same peice that comes on the losi hex. I bet that might work a little better plus you won't have to cut anything, but I did not think that they still made this purple gears any more and the one at our race shop had just been sitting there for a while on the shelf. I will probobly try and see if they still have it actually!!

Tamiya F103 Premounts, none better.
They're a little spendy but they wear well and have excellent grip for asphalt or carpet. This is also the tire included with the F103 Anniversary kit.

Who's down for F1 racing at WCRC on Sunday the 27th?

Remember we were all invited to do another round of the Ultimate F1 type racing format on that date?

I'm good to go if y'all are too.

I think it's awesome that they cater to us F1 Primadonna's and our need to have it our way or we ain't gonna play attitudes .

Nah, it's an awesome deal all around and I know everyone likes it.

Altho it is the holidays, I'm sure lots of us will have new toys to play with and I'm guessin a bunch of us will be wanting to hit the track?
