The Jordan 191 Ford decals can also be used on the Type-C body. I have a new Tamiya Jordan 191 Ford decal set for sale if anybody is interested.

Yes, but the dimples for the body post holes need to be relocated to run them on the 103
I have all 3 in stock at

I'm having some problems with my 103rm on low grip asphalt or hard court, not getting enough off throttle steering. On throttle seems ok, and the car does spin out sometimes on corner exit but that could be because of my over eager throttling.

Running zen 35/25 shore f/r. 3racing shock with 30 oil. Silver spring on roll damper without grease. Silver (soft) spring on front. 3.5mm offset upright with toe rod on rear hole. The offset upright helped the coner exit to be more predictable but seemed to introduce off throttle push. Was on stock upright with black springs before. Any advice?

Thanks!

go to black hard springs on the front and on the T plate underneath rather than running two rubber o'rings, use a 0.5mm metal shim on the front hole and screw it down solid, then use a rubber o'ring on the rear one.

This will give much better steering characteristics, also make sure you're running where near 0-2 degrees of toe out on the front wheels.

Use a diff grease on the damper plate, i use associated diff grease, don't over tighten the damper discs they're just to slow down the rebound of the t-plate, not stiffen up the car.



Also make sure you're prepping your tires properly using suitable traction compound, start with rears only then introduce more to the front tires as needed to add steering.. (follow the compound instructions for how to apply)
