Have you seen the new Speed Passion LMP chassis, i wonder if that is a smarter route to go...
You've definitely got an F103 there, and a new T-bar can be found for $5.90. If you want an alloy rear pod, which you don't get with any F103 kit, add the 3Racing motor mount and wing mount for $24 and you are done.

Thanks that`s not too expensive, i need some other stuff aswell, I`m gonna give it a try.
Have you guys seen the pictures of Speed Passions upcoming LMP chassis?

Seems like a great chassis and solves the problems with sourcing F103 chassis and parts...

Itching for the Rivall body and the Speed Passion Audi R18. Bought a Courage LC70 body and got my hands on a set of Patron decals. Will be a tribute to the car Scott Sharp destroyed at T2 at the 2009 Petit LeMans when it's done. Recently bought a McAllister Corvette Daytona Potato. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. Had a friend give me a NOS Parma Panoz GT, too. :-)

Sourcing F103 parts is that much of an issue yet... The F103 is still really popular amongst the 200mm fans and heaps of online stores carry parts for them, and the 3Racing F109 was, basically, a copy of it.

Mind you the SP chassis does look good

Sourcing F103 parts is not going to be a problem long after the Speed Passion has come and gone, Tamiya is still selling F103 cars and all the parts are still listed. The third party option parts are getting harder to get hold of though as they move on to the F104, but an awful lot of them still fit the F103. Thanks to their habit of rereleasing old cars Tamiya are still selling parts for the F102 which hasn't been sold since 1992.

I'm very excited about this car, current info is very slim though. I would really like to know its dimensions and what class its intended for and would be run in. I've been an off road guy my whole life but recently tried on road and loved it.

I wonder if Solara, who regularly posts in the Speed Passion F1 car thread, would be able to shed any light. He is an importer of Speed Passion products.

Castrol decals come with the 235mm McAllister Jaguar GTP body. I bought mine at Stormer Hobbies.
