With the donor car you should have everything you need.

Going to convert my 101 to this car. I have the full exotek front end. For those using this front end what springs are perfurred? Black, silver or the new softer springs? Do you need the braces with the carbon chassis?

Another idea is to put the stock parts back on your donor cars and sell them because if you already have the IFS front end then all you would need (just about) is the rear axle/diff assembly and TRF shock to bolt onto the F1R3. You may have money left over, from selling the stock donor rollers to buy new tires and body for your F1R3

Josh- For IFS the stock silver spring is a good starting point.

Lol! Good point! After having such great results with my exo6 conversion the choice was pretty obvious for this f1 platform.

You guys using 100k in side tubes? What about the IFS front end dampers? Still the AW grease? My front end always felt so soft. Is that typical?
