Does the RM come with the pivot ball rear suspension or the screw and rubber o-ring older suspension?

Im really interested in this car but would like to know if there is a way to mount standard pan car foam tires on the car. Can it be done? How do the wheels mount on the car? Sweet looking car.

It can be done but it is a bit of a hassle. You'll have to change out the whole rear axle assembly to one from a standard pan car. Then you'll have to change the rear bearings from a metric bearing to a standard bearing and find some way to make them fit correctly. Then in the front you'll have make metric bearings fit in a standard wheel.

Would I be able to Convert a F103gt to a F103rm?
I have the front end parts, just need to know about the rear end.

What is the difference in the F or M type body?

Thank you
Dave
