Default Yeah Racing Aluminum Dampers

Hi. Are these dampers any good? They are cheaper than the special 103 damper from Tamiya and the ones from 3Racing? Thanks.

I'll post some pic's of it tomorrow when i'm @ the track...before the "scrapin" begins.

For real though,that car literally went from ebay to the track and was dialed.

My one r/c wish for this year would be that Tamiya does a "re-issue" on the 103.Don't try and fix what ain't broke.
Maybe if we keep threads like this alive it will happen.
here they go...











win or loose this thing is fun to drive...although a win would be nice

I! Hello, what shade of color Tamiya spray paint does it take for a body of F 103 in the colors of Renault R30 latest version?

I have big doubts to choose.

At your ideas ....

Yes, they work on carpet.

Ride, Pit Shimizu, or the NLA Tamiya rubber are the tires of choice for the carpet series at TQ.

I have been looking at F1 for a month, which version of the F103 is the best one? Is the F201 or F109 worth lookihg at? Is any one car that better than the other? We have a carpet track and have to use rubber tires.


Thanks
John

F-103 on Ride "A" tires is great on carpet, not as good as it is on foams though

F-201 4wd is discontinued, for good reason...

F109 can work, but needs more attention than the Tamiya cars.
