noticed on ebay a guy is selling painted TRG bodies and trying to pass them off as originals.

item number 170271402709 then check his other items for the other one.

nice paint job but VERY expensive and not what they seem!

Hi All

I have just been fixign up the 2nd hand car I bought. I have a problem though. I bought the TRG f103 rear wheels. However I cant get the thrust bearing etc to fit between the rear wheel and the rear diff. Looking at the f103 manual it seems that the rear wheel is in two parts so you put the thrust bearing set in between them. However on these wheels they are all in one part. so I'm stumped

Do I need to buy the all in one thrust bearing hop up instead? does that replace the std bearing on the end of the diff?

Any help would be appreciated.. My is ready to go once I sort that out.

Cheers

I knew our buds in Canada would be on the ball for this one. It seems you are the largest group so far for F1 racing that I'm aware of. As for the club thing It's not for any sanctioned events but they can be. We are just looking at numbers here to see if a championship could be within reach by each district without doing all the traveling to ease the cost. Maybe once a year have an event like the F1 builders cup to bring everyone together for a big F1 party. How are you doing with the black can motors compared to silver cans? I'm still a fan of the old Mabooch and can't seem to get away from it.

Just put the wheel onto the hex first, then slip the thrust assembly on after the wheel on on the hex(order as pictured in the manual), put the nut on and tighten diff to suit. All the standard thrust parts will do.

Very nice.

I am looking at the RM version from this link, and it looks hopped up with blue bits, are those included in the kit? I am guessing no....

How easy is to drive the F1? I've only had 2 RWD R/C before. The M04L and the Tamtech. The M04L was quite difficult to drive as it spun out quite a lot. The Tamtech was different, it was pretty hooked and easier to predict.

I'm thinking about getting the F1 15th anniversary if it's not too expensive. I enjoy driving RWD RC since it's a lot more fun than 4wd. The Tamtech was a lot of fun and cheap!
