ninen - Nope. They are different shaped rims and tires.

taisantobi - The car looks good, but it would be better if you had a number 2 on it. I'm not a Schumacher fan.

Default TCS F201

Hey Guys,

I just finally found a tuned kit and grabbed it. Should be arriving I hope in a few days.

Anyways, what other TCS compliant hopups do I need to have it setup nice and pretty? I think Titanium screws are allowed. Anything else I need to get?

Current List:
Titanium Screw set


Thanks

Scott

99.9% sure they will not. Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I beleive the rims of an F103 are flat to accept glued on foam tires, while the tires for the f201 have a groove cut into them which lines up with a raised section of the f201 rim.

Plus, I think the width of the f103 rear rim is much more than that of the f201 tire...

It would be worth your while to pick up a couple light wieght diff kits. I believe the tuned chassis uses the stock diffs and they have a tendancy to come loose or brake..

Not sure what part that is but if you are in the US call Tamiya USA. I was looking for a few parts for my EVO III SL and everyone was out. Tamiya USA had them in stock as well as having EVO III SL sticker sets....
