I just finished my first F103 RM. Since I found a Sauber shell and front wing, I did that first. Not much excitement since I am new to RC and I did everything out of the box.

Here's a C-body I just purchased. I plan on doing a red & white sceme w/ Target-Scotch decals. I know, that's a Indy car.

Does anybody know of a better performing ball connector that holds the tie rod to the steering arm? It seems to break often then not.

Thanks.

Not sure you're gonna get that 104 nose wing to fit. I'd have to dig in and check it.

Dont know if it was intentional, but you built the rear wing backwards.
For the front, I would get ahold of a heat gun and heat the legs on the wing and bend them inward.
