Rally FF03 looks really cool! Are you going to keep IFS? It looks like it gets in the way to steering.

Yes will keep the IFS. No issues of rubbing with the steering.

Interesting, I had to move suspension link in arm inwards to be able to get at full stock lock, that was before I cut downstops on chassis. Rally block tyres were already rubbing against damper mount at that stage... But that was on TB03, it looks like FF03 has improved that system.

I noticed that you run front dampers upside diwn. Does it have some advantage? And what tyres are you using?

I really never noticed anything different in performance with the dampers reversed. The rally tires are from Austar,

CF servo/RX and ESC trays on the FF-03 RR


All electronics installed.




They have different characteristics in set up but both perform really well for what they've been set up. I love these cars. The bodies should arrive next week. VW Scirocco for the Pro-R and Lancia Delta Integrale for the RR.

Ready to chop some 4WDs If it wasn't so heavy...
Although I have been designing a carbon chassis in my spare time to solve that

Good looking car herrokero. Like the tires you have there, what are they? Love mine, along with my TA-07 and F104. My favorite cars to run. I'm still trying to work out the snap slide though.

I've been looking for the alloy spur gear mount, alloy part that goes on the back of the gearbox, and the front bumper mount. I'd prefer the Tamiya parts, but they seem to be made from Unicorn farts... Any ideas?

Thanks, I've got an f104 myself but haven't had the chance to run it. As for the wheels, they are from an old Mugen mtx2 so I doubt you'd be able to find them nowadays. I don't intend to race with those wheels, but they give a nice "street" feel to the car, along with the Mugen (real car Mugen) RR Civic Type R body I'm using.

For the alloy spur gear mount, I'm just using the plastic one as the alu one from any brand is pretty much impossible to find. The part on the back of the gearbox which I'm assuming is the camber arm mount, is also hard to find the tamiya one. The one I'm running is the 3racing part which is easy to find if you look. It does need you to sand the gearbox if you're running the gear diff version. The alu front bumper mounts from any brand have only just recently started disappearing, so no idea about that. I usually look around rcmart, rcjaz and asiatees for ff03 parts.

And RCMart. I got many parts and upgrades for my FF-03 and CC-01. Many were also bought locally though.

My new bodies.

Lancia Delta Integrale (Killerbody) for the RR





Still waiting for the new set of Lancia wheels and rally block tires.

VW Scirocco R GT (Tamiya) for the Pro-R

Proline FF body? Kind of like them but am leaning towards the Golf GTI Cup car to replace my inner city Honda Accord.
