I know this is not a for sale thread, nor is it a F1-09 thread, but I wanted fellow F1ers to get first dibs. I am selling my F1-09. If anybody wants I can post pictures. It comes with complete rolling chassis, stock foams, silver can motor, CRC update side springs, and a KO PROPO pds-2502 digital servo. $70. P.M. me if interested. Thanks guys.

Now if I could just find the time to dedicate to the car...

it looks like quite a bit needs to be taken off the back of a 104 body.....i wonder how much then will be needed for the f60.

hopefully mine arrives this week as well, will post pics with both bodies.

Default F60 Body on a F103?

Hy there!

Do a F60 Ferrari body fit on a F103 by using a 4cell Stick pack and tape the battery in the car in the 15 aniversary edition style?

I think it should be narrow enough then right?

The front and rear wing should be a direct fit but does the shape of the body fit then the chassis without any major issues?

Greetings Rainer
