This might be old news to some, but its new to me. I just recently discovered that you can adjust F103 front camber using the stock carbon front suspension. What a lot of the guys are doing here in Japan is cutting out the middle supports (where the two long chassis bolts connects to nuts at the top of the suspension arms). They replace the cut out material with shims, they will then add shims according to what camber they desire.

I've seen it in person and it works.

I'll try to get some photos if anyone is interested.

Cheers.

I am getting ready to put on my new Lotus 98T JPS stickers on that body. It's the first time I will work with waterslide decals on RC body, are there any special tricks I need to know?

There are already a few options.


Zen camber adjust rods
work by bending the upper arms to increase camber.

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.

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

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.
