Here is the list I posted earlier

F103 GT conversion (from F103 F1 chassis)
51242- B Parts
51229- T Parts ( may need 2, I can't remember how they were packaged)
51227- R Parts
51232- Rear wheel Mount L
51231- Rear wheel Mount R
51233- Diff Joint
51088- Urethane Bumper
4005112- Chassis Plate
4025043- Upper Deck( if you dont have one already
9400389- Shaft Bag ( has the front axles and the longer king pins for the front suspension
If you want to run the Courage body you also need the Courage bumper parts #9000030. They have been hard to come by, but I think Tamiya has them in stock now.
Instruction manual can be downloaded in PDF format from Tamiya site

Any ideas where one can get a 6mm Graphite shaft and the flex T-Bar outside of eBay?

Miller Lite....

Or perhaps Red, orange, and yellow fade??

But then there's also my traditional Orange, blue, and white zig zag scheme too.

So many choices, and yet Memphis is only 6 weeks away....hmmmmm

Actually, have you never seen a picture of the Hellman's NSX? Let me know, I have it here at my desk, I can post it if need be

I have been looking at this chassis for a while now, I really want to get one, I think after I get my 007 up and going the f103gt will be my next car, do you have to use a stick pack in it or will a side x side pack work? what are the best upgrades for this chassis that would still make it tcs leagl?

Side packs will fit but your solder tabs will need to be either turned out or very low to get the pack in & out.

For Hop-Ups the Shock and turnbuckle set are a must. The motor mount and soft flex plate are also worth the money. If you don't already have the tamiya pitch pinions get the spur gear set, its cheaper than buying pinions for the stock spur.

The graphite upper deck, lower chassis, and friction plates make no difference at all, and the ball link suspension doesn't work as well as the stock o-ring setup. The Teflon friction washers feel smoother on the bench than the stock plastic ones but I couldn't tell them apart on track and they cost way to much for a couple of washers.

This is definatly a chassis that many do "over-spend" or "over tune" on with no improved performance or heaven forbid, reduced performance. " Isn't that " Gary, I know, as usual, I've allready said too much.......
That's all I got to say about that.......
