Hi,

Do you know whether a LRP TC-sphere speedie will fit below the top deck or what brushless speedie to use that will fit?

Any of the F103 RM drivers have already fitted a LRP brushless engine in the M-type body car? I just finished building it and the solderingtabs of the engine don't fit under the body. Before cutting the body I'm looking if anyone has some better tips... THANX!

It's been discussed earlier down this thread. Look back a number of pages down, or do a search on this thread to find what you'er looking for.

Something like that anyway.

EDIT: The top parts did line up in the edit part, but I can't get them to line up in the post, but you get the idea.

I think Vyger would get a kick out of this. Looks like something that could easily be recreated with a little stainless tubing and a torch.

Does anyone have one of these F103 they want to get rid of? I have would like to trade a mini cooper for one. The mini cooper is nice and dialed. I finished 6th in the A main at Trackside last years TCS race with it.

Thanks for your time.

My F103RM will be in the For Sale/Trade section in the next few days, but I'm not looking for trades right now.

Raced a F103RM Anniversary Edition (carbon-filled front end) for the first time this weekend. Noticed that the front wheels are wearing with a slight positive camber. Is there a method to correct this?
