Running for fun with friends is relaxing, lots of laughs.

I race almost every week in TC, mini, (no F1). Yet I had so much fun just playing with 7 other F1 guys on the track last Sunday.

The moment F1 becomes overcome with serious racers is when the fun dies.

Thanks,
Much better than the Tamiya tyres on asphalt. Ive tried Tamiya rubber and foam,RIDE F104 tyres and finally these RIDE F103 tyres and these are certainly the best.The wheels are the original F104W Wolf ones. I'm running a 13.5t and it handles great. Sorry I dont know the part number, just that they are F103 A Compound.

Can anyone point me in the right direction for swapping the 104 front end to the 103. I'm looking for what is required, what can, and will i re-use from my stock front end. things like that

I've searched this, the 104 and the 103 threads and i only get spotty info and nothing thats really helped thus far

Edit: I've found a few things here and there, as I understand it, the 103 front end is a direct bolt on so now my question...

Are the front pins, springs, steering knuckles and things of that nature the same?

The king pins on the F104 are longer. The springs and steering knuckles are the same.
