Thanks,

My Xtreme Stock ESC fits like it was purpose built for this chassis

Could you please tell me if that servo mount will fit directly into a F109, If so i will have to keep my eye out for them when they become available by them self's. Just what i have been looking for.

Cheers, and keep up the great builds and reviews.

Thanks - unfortunately it's not a direct fit, mounting holes are closer on this one.

Your conversion looks GREAT! Couple questions, is there an advantage to running the battery long ways like you've done versus placing it width wise?
Second, will this kit be a direct fit replacement for a tamiya f103gt frame (ie front end, rear end)?

Have you tried the T plate config yet? A friend of mine runs this car( T-plate) and it's hooked up.

No - I decided to build it as a link car from start.

Maybe I will try the T-bar version for my back up chassis.

What's with the wide spacing on the rear axle?

We are using Tamiya F104 Rubber tires as control tires for the Swedish F1 winter Cup. The spacing is used to make the rear wider as we're having big problems with traction roll when running the narrow rear end.

Makes sense...are you then using an F104 rear pod to get the right height correct?

Yes you can use the F104 motor pod - it's a direct fit but chose to stay with the original pod as I like the design/looks of it.



I use a 3Racing 3mm shim motor mount for the F103GT (F103GT-25/WO) sandwiched between the pod and the carbon motor plate. Ride height is 4mm - same as if I use the F104 motor pod.

If you can't fit your electronics on the chassis plate between the links and the lipo a nice solution is to mount a 3Racing Graphite Radio Tray for M05 (M05-11/WO).

Cool...didn't know 3Racing made a part specifically for the ride height...would have saved me having to cut one for my F1-09.
