btw... here is the translation...
Whether Tamiya with the M05 and F104 lost ground with the M-chassis and F1 to make up for can will soon show up. Urgent renovation need exists anyhow in both classes. In RC of sport now the new chassis were introduced. With the F104 pro the accumulator 90 degrees and now lengthwise accommodated. The feathers/springs of the front axle perform its service under the lower wishbone. Lower (3,2mm) and upper (2,0mm) chassis deck are from carbon; the T-bar from 1,5mm strong fever glass. The rear axle is again from carbon. the TRF absorber is in the same blue as the Diffgehäuse made of aluminum. That everything is running in ball bearings, is natural. The mini chassis M05 pro will have in the back aluminum wheel carriers. The horn of the Servosavers is likewise from aluminum. The absorbers grumble themselves " CVA super Mini" and befedert with TRF Short jump. Many balls, nuts and Spacer are contained also in aluminum execution. The servo walked finally from the very unfavorable upper position to the rear. Chevron offered already a change kit for it.

For those who just retired the F103GT because no one is running....I am in the process of converting the F103GT to WGT spec...basicly, this is probably around $100 investment onto the AE RC10 R5 parts and can convert the F103GT (that worth probably nothing) into WGT spec, use WGT foams (can be purchase @ Tower) and WGT body from Protoform (Tower). So, you don't have to sell that GT for cheap or let her collect dust...

The chassis will stay the same with the 103GT except the whole rear axle/diff wheel adaptor must be the RC10 R5 parts. Front axle will use the RC10 R5 knuckle as well. My estimate is around $100 of parts, but that is not including a set of foams and body...

At least...that is the best way I can find out and reuse this GT car that no one is planning to race anymore....

I will post pictures once I have the conversion done....right now, I am busy dealing with the F1 103R.....

If you are using SPUR GEAR adaptor from 3racing, HPI or Kawada...you can mount any spur gear on the market...but you have to use BIGGER pinion for small spur...

It is all depends on what type of tires, what motor speed and track surface...

Ouchie. How did that happen? I though my F103GT was invincible. Turns out it also had its Achilles' heel .

A post in another thread said that "he" cannot find the original right rear hub from tamiya because it was already a discontinued kit.

For 3racing parts, try rcmart.

Honestly, I have two GT's where the other one is used as a spare car or for spare parts since the parts are kinds scarce.

When assembling the front hubs, instructions say to put two 2mm T3 plastic pieces below the steering block and one above the upper A arm. I remove the one below the steering block and put it on top instead. This gives me a proper ride height with my tires.

Upon checking, this gives a camber of 1.5deg. But when you put both T3 spacers below the upper A arm but above the steering block, I got a camber of 2deg. Can someone confirm this?
