You can also use Tamiya F1 Link Type Front Suspension , IMO the plastic is stronger than the 3Racing part.

Using the link uppers arms the Kawada mount lets you adjust camber.

Yeah Racing steering knuckles, the set includes 3 different camber settings, although swapping knuckles isn't the quickest way of adjusting it.


3Racing front suspension
, as used on the F109. Normal turnbuckle adjustable upper arms.

Can anyone tell me the difference and when it's preferable to use a slick rubber tire versus a ribbed tire? Is one better for carpet, etc.?

Ribbed tires were created to model the real ribbed f1 tires at the turn of the century. They have no advantage over slicks.

As I have some freetime right now I was surfing the net and found these tires for the F103 (scroll a little):
http://www.xceedrc.com/product/Tyres/all/all/1/3

I found a shop in Germany that says in the description that they will also fit on the F104.

Does someone have experience with these tires or can tell me if F103 wheels will fit on the F104 (v2)?

Thanks

F103 tires will fit on a F104. However, the F103 tires are a lower profile than the F104 tires and will lower your ride height. Also, the F103 rears are wider than the F104 rears which will change the trac width (the front tires between the two are almost the same width). All of this is in reference to rubber tires. Don't have much experience with foams so someone else will have to chime in on that topic.

F103 front rims will not fit a f104 front end. The front end parts are too tall and the rims will not fully seat on the axle. However, F104 rims fit the F103, being a larger diameter.

You are correct about the F103 rims on a F104 front end.
I Always use the F104 rims/tires on my F103 front end, cause of using these tires i'm almost able to use the full height of the tire. My smallest set of F104 tires has about 2mm foam left on the rim. Gives me the best ride height of 3,2 - 3,4mm, and i can say that the car handles very wel and it's very very fast.
Second positive point is, the bearings are much stronger then the 850 ones that are needed in a F103 rim.

So nice. Looks as good as the new Speedpassion Audi LMP.

Default That's awesome!

I must have that body! It's even cooler than the Protoform Porsche911 GT1/98 (Mulsanne) body. Is there a class somewhere in the world that uses sports prototype bodies on a WGT chassis?

A couple of points about the Rivall LMP body.

It's for WGT, so too short for an F1 chassis. If you still want one it will cost you $84, plus postage.

The Tamiya F1 link type front suspension gives my car less front end grip compared to the standard front end (whether on foams or rubbers). I believe there is too much camber or camber change.

Not any more. We used to run RC10L3Ts with the Mulsanne body about 10 years ago, but 1/10th pan was only revived due to the creation of the new WGT class.

Although the old style full 235mm Pro Ten are still popular in Germany and the Netherlands. Until Speed Passion bring out their new car.
