Yes, just the bumper for the twin body posts, although I have also seen an F103 converted by just fitting body posts in the spare holes in the F103 arms and an old broken wing cut down as a bumper.

All the Blade Racing and Cross Group C bodies are designed to fit the standard F103 chassis and tyres.

The f103gt rolling chassis kit even had body posts and front bumper foam and plate for a touring car body. http://rss.rcmart.com/wp-content/upl...estock_002.jpg

There is a factory painted bodyset on e-bay for not to much money brand new.

I just bought this body and had it shipped from japan. It does not have all the original livery like "REKNOWN" most likely due to licensing issues.

Note: Official Tamiya 1/10 Group C/Lemans bodies will not fit the F103GT.
It will only fit if new holes are opened in the body as the Group C mounts are closer together and farther forward than the F103GT.

The F103GT(257mm) is 23mm shorter than the Group C(280mm) in its longest configuration. This configuration is required for almost all of the Group C/lemans bodies offered by Tamiya. The track of the F103GT is far too narrow for the Group C body as well. The Chargespeed Mazda 787b body is approximately 230mm wide or even wider.

The F201 wheel base is perfect for the tamiya mazda 787b/C11/Jag/Nissan/etc. But again, like the F103GT, the track is too narrow. +10 offset is required on touring wheels for the f201 track to match the body width.

The only way to get the tamiya Group C/Lemans body onto the F103gt chassis plates is to flip the front suspension such that the arms are attached backwards. The F103RM and F104 chassis are both also longer, so replacing the F103GT carbon plates will get you closer to the Group C full length, but will only get you halfway there, to the 2nd notch setting on the Group C chassis. If you go this route, TRG makes front uprights that have flippable positions to length/shorten wheel base.

The last option which I personally use is to put the F1-09 adjustable arms on the F103GT chassis and use the f104 tires. The rears need spacers in order to be wide enough using the F103/F103gt driveshaft along with the F104 rear wheels. I also can use the F104 carbonshaft and use the original Group C car rearwheels with the adapters. This allows me to run 200m wide touring car bodies using super wide rears. Best of all, the C-car/F103GT chassis adds to the realism of MR race cars. Can't beat that.

This one??---> http://www.ebay.nl/itm/Tamiya-Mazda-...item519cbcb552
It looks like it is still for sale
I don't know how long the Tamiya Indycar chassis are?
Perhaps that is a option?
If you use the original wheel adaptors and wheels at the rear from the Group C Tamiya you get the aditional extra MM to fill out the body.
Also the front wheels have a different offset to the F1 wheels.
If you want to use a different chassis underneeth the Group C bodies from Tamiya, you can use the Asso 10R5 with a different front suspension plate that makes the car wheelbase longer.
If you want to use the TS020 or 911GT1 body then you can use the 10R5 as it is in it's longest wheelbase and with some 6MM spacers on the rear axle to let if move freely under the body

Only the Toyota Tom's and Porsche 956 on the RM01 chassis from Tamiya.
Don't know if they fit a 1:12 like a 12R5.1 tho.

Grand info! Thanks, I was tring to fit my C11 with ruber tires for a LM class we run in southern California, tried the axle and even the tire mount from the C but the offset on the Tamiya F104 are not enough.

Can you post some photos?

Thanks!
Marcos

I'm currently racing this one:
Here with 26 tires for display (I wish I cold fit them instead of the F103

At half race (minute four) the lights are tuned down on the track


This one just in from racing last Saturday in our first round for Mini Z at Kennon RC (M03 Chassis LM - Box stock runs good!)


Cheers Marcos

Thanks for the replies, I had seen the RM-01 thread, sweet looking ride. Their was a guy on ebay making realistic looking 1/12th bodyshells from time to time but I can't find the link or comment about it now, can't remember the dudes name either.

Hi just a quick one on the f201 wheel base,it needs shortening for the 787b,i just turned the rear arms around it then fit perfectly and as pointed out you need +10 off set wheels.

f104 rubber tyres will go on standard group c rims trust me,just little patience with the glue and they'll be fine,the rims are wider than the tyres but it has no detrimental affect on anything my c11 has a 15turn motor and they haven't come off yet.
