Ok, maybe we can get back to a discussion about the model.

Anyone had success getting an F102 wing to work on the F103 chassis plate?

I want to use the Jordan 191 wing.. but I see the mount is different.

Anyone?

James

TRG has some rubber tires for the F103.
I know Tamiya used to have some but I don't know if they're still available (53138, 53139)

The TRG rubber tires are excellent IMO. I bought mine from RCmart, but other places have them now. I looked for Tamiya rubber tires, but had no luck. I recently assembled a F312T3 and it came with the Tamiya rubber tires, after mounting them and glueing them up, I like the TRG tires better. The rubber compound seems to be stickier, the foam inserts are not too bad, and I believe them to be belted like a normal touring car tires.

Is anyone having trouble with the front TRG rims? The bearings seem a bit too loose causing the wheel to wobble? I'm using the kit bearings.

seems fine for me other than a little torque steer on the launch (which i think will be fixed with a couple of washers on both front tires)

I think that on such a car, steering expo is a godd thing (I set it to -25% on my Futaba 3GR) but I didn't have to set a throttle expo or EPA, with a 9.5 Eraser (it was this week end, on a unclean track, on my F103 GT, so with 26mm touring foam tires, instead of the 45mm rear foam tires). The only point is that 25 shore foam tire can last 6 packs, so a bit more than 2 hours, no more...

Hey James, the F102 wings will work with the F103. The rear is a direct bolt on. The front needs a little modifying but it can work. You just need to cut off the two front parts that stick out and keep it from sliding into the A-arm bulk head. Once those are trimed off the wing should slide in with out a problem. If you get it and have questions just shoot me a note, I'd be happy to help.

Well I bought the 191 wing.. it is on its way.. I am going to buy a TRG 94W body and a rear wing.. this will be as close to a 191 Jordan without blowing my budget.. since I am going to run it.



What do you think Vyger.. close eh?

Just shim it up with a small piece of paper around the bearing when you push them in...

That's a great looking car. I got one of these a about a month ago. TRG did a great job shaping this one. The only problem is there aren't any trim lines for the front A-arms, steering links and wing. So you'll have to get creative when it comes to trimming this one out. I think it should be a great platform for the 191 build you've got in store for it. Make sure you post up some pics as you go. I'd love to see how you work it. Are you using the decal sheed from D-drive?

Nice clean look Rob,

I dont bother with decals on the tires, because I figure they wont be there long anyway.

yep.. dont really have much choice if I am going to really do a 191 M. Schumacher.
I think the $25 us price tag is a bit much.. but there will be lots of decals left for another project.

I am still using up decals from my original Road wizard sheet!
