Anybody have a link to a online shop to buy F103 tyres and wheels by Ride? Want to buy a set for my new F109.

Also guys being new to F1, how do you make a F109's diff more open rather than locked? Any help much appreciated.

103 rides are hard to find.
In fact, 103 rubber in general is a bit hard to find.
I have had some luck tracking down the trg tires but they are $$.(over $50 a set by the time they ship ).

Raw fish has bad influence on your brain - get the next boat from Yokohama to Gothenburg now!

Eat some Tunnbrödrullars and have yourself a Pucko - that's what real men eat.



Your country needs you as well as your Team - Squderia Hugo / Koppartrans Racing - or you'll be helplessly last in the league if you don't show up in Viskafors!

BTW Anders - I won Concours d'Elegance in your absence

Read this post http://www.rctech.net/forum/6596189-post317.html - maybe you can find it helpful.



I'm using Associated red diff grease instead of that silvery goo

Default carbon chassis

[QUOTE=bjholz;7411729]So why you you think they went with an FRP chassis instead of carbon fiber? Will someone make a carbon fiber chassis for this car?[/QU

Hi guys,

i have a problem to build the diff.
Is that correct that the thrust bearing, the disk spring and the diff spacer spring will be mounted into the wheel? and not on the axle?
Never seen something like this before

If i mount it in the wheel i will not get the diff locked.

And is this normal that the thrust bearing gets really hard onto the axle?

I think that they are to small.

Have been in Spain as well after Japan, and need to spend som time on my ´58 Thunderbird at the moment, so I guess I have to live with the shame of being last in the league....

I'd use it just because it is carbon fiber! I dislike fiberglass chassis.

So yeah...where do I get that?

No need to rub it in - I'm all envy!

All rims/rubber tires that fit F103/F104 will also fit the F1-09 - the F103 rims are the same width as the kit wheels

You have to check that the inner thrust bearing plate falls all the way down to the wheel and doesn't get locked on the axel - you may need to work the axle with some fine emery paper prior the assembly.

Carbon looks better - always!

Fiberglass handles better - in most cases.

The choice is really up to you ... I'd go for carbon chassis if I only could get hold of one
