So I picked up an F103R today and was expecting the rear ball suspension to be included with the kit, but I guess the F103R kit doesn't come with it. What are the advantages of the rear ball suspension? I would think it would make more of a difference on asphalt than carpet?

I normally do not post here but I too bought an F103R kit. I am trying to track down a TCS Legal body kit for it. I even considered buying and RM kit just to get the body. Someone please PM me if you know where I can purchase this... Thank you.

What kind of servos are you guys running in these cars?
Also, is there any weight rule on the F1 class for a TCS race? I do not see anything posted.

jamie, take 1 of ur oval servos that just happens to have a busted ear and use that! no weight limit. but be advised these things actually can behave better if they've been eating well.

I previously tried the ball suspension on the normal F103. It handling sux, so I reverted back to the normal suspension.

Was running on asphalt btw... Never tried it on carpet before.
