Default Exotek f1Ultra F103 conversion



Just thought this one needed a thread of its own. I don't have one yet, but its on my shortlist of needs to have.

Mine arrived today. Now I'm just waiting on the 103 arrive to put it on.

I do love my D-Drive conversion, so this will be an interesting addition.

There's no f1 class at my local 1/8 nitro track! Such a shame!
So since there are no local rules i think I'll get one of there and put my 6.5t orca in and do some mental laps!

I wish pan cars were run at my local track!

If all goes well, I'll have a nice collection to bring.

F103 - DDrive
F103 - Exotek
F104 - Exotek
F104WGP
F103 - Rapid Roche
FGX - Exotek

I have the F103 Ddrive done now, I expect the FGX Exotek and/or the F103 Exotek to be ready as well.

This one looks awesome. Not as "realistic" or "modern look" as 180-190 mm and rubbers but faster at the track for sure.

I'd love you to post up all the standard f103 kit parts you use, and what option parts / upgrades you use.

Thumbs down

Man I almost dropped the hammer on this one this evening. But for some reason common sense showed up at my house tonight and I bought parts for the 3 F1s I already have. Bummer.

Common sense is just a phase. It'll pass and everything will be as it should be.

You're changing your name to texasf1 aren't you?
