I've heard the middle of November but nothing solid. I think I heard that on here or one of the other forums.

No, that is a Tamiya body, but it is the F201 Williams body set. The decals are not done on a cutter, because I have the same sheet that he used, it is a decal island sheet and has the sauber and the jag on one sheet. I have had the leaping cat and the jag script cut before I got my own cutter, and most of the logos are too small to cut, as I have pushed the limits on how small you can cut and get good quality

Hi All,
Thanks for all your inputs. I'm really new to electric stuffs. So does that mean I can use a GTB with fan(because then I won't need to buy another ESC) in the F103, with a brushed motor? And also I cannot use a lipo with brushed motor here? Somehow I see that the GTB with fan seems rather tall to fit in the F103.

Cheers.

Hi TitaniumR

The GTB, if I'm not mistaken, is just slightly bigger compared to the LRP TC spec. I have attached 2 pictures for you to see how i mounted my TC spec on the F103 and there is still room to spare. Do take note that i mounted my receiver vertically.

In the Philippines, when we run our F1 club races, most of us use the orion 3600 and 3800 lipo packs.

hope this helps

The official release date for Japan is November 28th so they should arrive here mid December for Christmas.

Thanks so much aleclandanga. The 103R has a front upper carbon deck. Does your esc/GTB still fit in? Saw you use a brushed stock motor.

I see you use the "other" not used battery holders from the "D" tree for the lipo.

I only have the others and I am trying to fit my lipo... need to find someone who has the D tree lying around. grrrrr.

TitaniumR, I dont see why you cant use the GTB if you have a small receiver. Nice thing is that you can always remove the fan if needed.

Just wanted to point out Vyger's new F1 thread. He detailed some body painting and decaling tip which I thought were helpful: http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...-whatever.html

Both the ball & o-ring suspension battery holders have a negative impact on handling. For best results I would suggest using the o-ring suspension set and tape the battery in instead of using the holders. If you look at the pics of the soon to be released hop-up chassis you will see that the battery must be taped in as suggested.

Guess I could tape it, but man thats a pain in the butt to tape up remove tape up.. as I have to charge the lipo in a lipo sack - I cant leave it in the car.

Is there instructions on how to build it with the o-ring suspension rather than the ball? The RM manual only shows how to build the ball suspension.
