I'm about to purchase a F103rm, but was wondering, I run on asphalt, so what would be a good recomendation for rubber tires to run it with, or will it be fine on foam's. Is anyone running with rubber, and what's it handle like in comparison to the foam's

I'm going to run a tamiya technigold or rz motor with nimh batteries.

Any information you can provide would be appreciated.

The Kit tires, are a soft foam and will work well on asphalt. I would recommend that you get some tire sauce Paragon would be great, this will provide you with the traction you need. Keep in mind that depending on the surfacte the tires will wear and need to be monitored. This Kit has solid front arms and this leads to uneven wear of the fronts keep in mine that you should switch the fronts from side to the other after every run, this will allow for a more even wear. I have not seen rubber tires released as of yet.

Well, I just bought the F103RM. The only thing I don't understand is the differense between the M type and T type bodies.

The M type body is a McClaren with a high-nose body style. The T type is the Tyrrell 023 car with a low-nose front end

How do the kit foams work on carpet?

How is everyone mounting the foams?

For Black Can or Silver Can the double sided tape that is included works great.

As for carpet, i have yet to try.

Being new the the F103, I'm looking at a few aftermarket parts at the moment. Can anyone shed some light on what differences there are between the F103GT and the F103RM? Are the chassis parts/motor pods identical?

The sad thing is that I really hope that Tamiya does not do the usual we make for 6 months then stop all including the parts and support. That really sucks you know what I mean!?

ApexSpeed: The main differences bretween the GT and the RM are the following, Front suspensionon the RM is solid, the King pins are different and the c- clips, you can use the suspension from the GT, however you will need some part from the old F103 cars, they may be hard to get. The rear diff is different and so is the T-plate.

Will the standard touring dampers fit this chassis? I would rather buy a set of four than buy one for half the price.
