I'm using 46mm with the 1C suspension mounts and they work fine.

Sounds good. Thank you in advance.
According to one of the rctech.net members his FF03 was only .4 to .5 second slower than his 4wd...not bad at all for a FWD.

I drove my friend's FF03 last weekend and looks like I'll be getting one soon for TCS and some USGT club racing...

if you are .5 slower than the 4wd each lap that's one lap down in the finish races...
I did raced my FF03 againt the 4wd and the FF03 is faster in the back straight but the in the infeild the 4wd is quicker out of the corner

Overall how were your results racing FF03 against 4wd?

anyway, the answer is no... the TA06 gear diff will NOT fit the FF03 without any modifications.
The TA06 gear diff is much wider than what the FF03 will allow to fit even when using the SpecR diff housing.

Pic attached is a comparison between the SpecR FF03 gear diff (white/bronze) and the TA06 gear diff (black).

Shane,

Yes they can. Just check when you put on the blade that there is no binding with the suspension compressed.

I checked my FF03 and with the standard front blocks I am using 44mm universals.

Later,

Calvin.

Hi all.

Just picked up a standard ff03. I am looking to do a few cheapish mods to improve it. I was thinking some tuned springs and a full bearing set, what else would you guys recommend? I want it for outdoor and parking lot driving.

Many thanks! JM
