There is a parts sheet. Its seperate from the manual. It's about a 6x8 sheet with all the F103R specific parts.

I was told the F103R premnounted wheel/tires will be available Jan.22 in Japan shops.

And yes, these are the right #s for the premounted tires (front#54135 rear#54136)

BTW it is a 15th aniv kit.
Yes, I have cracked 2-3 of those.. Its quite brittle that plastic. So try not to tighten too much or crash to much...

I just finished my 15th Anniversary Kit and was curious if you guys add weight when using LiPo's ? If so, how much and where ? It's been a while since I've run a pan style car so I know I'll be playing with the set up, but was curious about weight. If it helps, I set this up for TCS and will only be running the silver can for the next few months. Thanks.

We run ours with Lipo and don't add any weight to them at all.

Try to keep them under 170, They are really happy at 150.

Has anyone purchased a Chevron models F108 or the TRG F08 bodies? Any feedback on these? The TRG bodies look thin and not very crisp. Unfortunately everyone is out of stock of everything
