You know what people.. we need a sticky for this.. or something..

This question gets asked at least once a week.

Is there a way to do that?

OMG Roy! DO IT! I'd love to run F1 at KARZ...I have an F103RM with about 4 different bodies that I'd love to run. I also have an F103GT and they run pretty well too with rubber tires although you really need to run different rubber front and rear.

In some ways I think F1 would make a better spec class than the Mini's...and I REALLY like Mini's

I'll be out on Sunday and I'll try to further influence your decision

Cheers,
Mike

Can you convert the f103rm to run touring car wheels like the f103gt.....we are trying to find a spec-class for our club....we all like F-1...but if we wanted to, for a special occasion, run 190mm bodies would/could that work??

Hope someone can help me out!!

Thanks,
Roy

actually bro, the front and rear wings seem to work well on the williams body. at least its better than the stock rear wing of the Williams... it was so fragile that just one bad crash is all it takes to crack up that wing... my friend once broke a wing after he accidentally dropped the car when he lost grip...

They are one of the shells from the old F103LM, they also came with a Audi R8? and a Toyota Lemans shell. But yeah i think they are 200mm. Those Tamiya leman shells are pretty hard to get these days.

Thanks Tommi! I'll keep you in mind if anything changes and I decide to sell.

Congrats to Hamilton on his 2008 Championship and to Massa for his race victory! Great show for the last race of the season.
