Bit of a thread revival but does anyone know if regular 1/10th pan car wheels or wgt spec wheel/tires fit the Hpi Super F1? I'm asking just encase their is any offset built in to the wheels.

Thank you kindly Sir Don't suppose you could recommend a good starting point for tire compounds running on carpet without additive?

Blue front, green rears with plenty of additive on the rear was par for the course when I used to race it every week back in the day but as ever tire compounds have moved on alot since then.

Here is how we used to do it...we always used the old tape trick to hold the metric bearings in the standard sized holes. You'll need a whole Tamiya rear axle assembly, 5mm ID rear bearings that are just a lil smaller in OD than the stock 1/4"x3/8" bearing and with the F103 wheel the front bearings should be fine. Put a piece of tape over the rear bearing hole and cut a + in it, then press the metric bearing into place, the tape will make up the size difference from the standard to the metric. Then you can slide the rear axle assembly into place and shim as needed to get the width correct. For the front wheels you do the same thing...place a piece of tape over the bearing hole in the rim and cut a + into it, then press the bearings into place and shim as needed. It's not a great solution but it does work.

I believe the Top F1 car uses standard rear bearings and maybe a metric front axle with a knuckle for a standard king pin. So it may be possible to convert to Tamiya rims using the Top F1 rear axle assembly and front steering knuckles and axles.

I'm not sure its all worth it though...for the cost to do all of that your already half way to a new F1 car that you won't have to fuss with to make work with the rims.

If you can find the hpi f10 rear diff for foam package, hard to find and pricey, it will mount perfectly just shim for center and width. The part was listed on the hpi web site under f10 parts. 103 rims slide right on..
