With a 19T it will be a handful. R Partee was rnning his with one in prep for the 24hr and was spinning the diff all the way down the straight with it locked up pretty tight.

As for fit it looked pretty good. It was not drilled for the chassis but set on and looked right.

Hey, I'm trying to put some turnbuckles on my F103GT but I've hit a little snag. Does anyone know where I can get some 5mm ball ends with the little screw threads (other than in the F103 turnbuckle set)? Thanks!

So far, i had been using the 4mm ball end from Team Magic which fits well and work fantastically.

The tamiya hi-torq servo saver & the F103 turnbuckle set both come with the ball studs you need.

I'm getting very good results with the F103GT on foam tires, 35R/26mm front, 30R/30mm rear. GRP.

Slides a bit when pushed hard, but with some paragon, it's on rails!

What brand of foams set were you using? I tried fitting a elegy 26mm foam set and the wheels were hitting the suspension arms, etc.

Does anyone have a list of the parts needed to convert an F103RX/RS to the F103GT? I have an extra F1 car that I would like to change.

Thanks in advance!

I'm using the foams from GRP as mentioned.
As for hitting the sus arms, are your turning angles too much?

Cool inside wheel lifts when pushing car hard on carpet

Hi, I was testing my 103gt at trackside yesterday (an indoor carpet track in milwaukee wisconsin) and the inside wheel lifts when cornering when pushing the car hard. With the advice of the guys there I got the lifting better by using trinity purple grease on dampner disks,tighting t plate up a bunch and going to associated 22 hard springs on the front suspension.I was running a stratus body and cs 27 tires with jack the gripper tire sauce.I got traction rolls at first but I fixed that by putting losy tire glue on sidewalls .If I just sauce 1/4 of front tire not much tire lifting but also does not turn as much as I would like, as I sauce more of the tire 1/2 to 3/4 of tires wheel lifting comes back. any ideas guys there must be a way to tame this trate of this other wise very cool car.thanks in advance.
