Default F103GTR

Hi Guys, I'm from Singapore.
Been viewing this thread for a while and thought that I could post shots of my GT.

Very nicely done with the F103. I've never watched them before so now I'll be going thru their archives to see all the videos.

What we used to run on (48& 64 Pitch), were known as the Imperial sizes. Tamiya's introduction of 0.6 & 0.4 Module is 48 & 64 Pitch, but only in metric size.

Do NOT attempt to mix these 2 size together as it will cause damage to the gears, either the spur or the pinions.

When you have the Carbon Chassis installed, you can try not to install the upper deck that runs to the servo mount. The Carbon Chassis alone is stiff enough to do the job. Hence you will have more space for the wires. Please refer to my picture.

Hope it helps!

Chassis plate is standard F103GT

Try loosening and retightening the screws/bolts, just in case it does have a tweak.

If its always happening, it may be due to a warpped T-Bar. Mine warpped pretty bad once and the car kept spinning out on one side. A bit more disc damping will help cushion the effect. But best to try a new T-Bar to confirm.

Then you will need the upper deck to support.

Your T-Bar could be warpped.

Also, check your ball diff. Just last Saturday during my run at the track, upon acceleration, my F103GT swirled to the right and the car felt funny on the differential.

I'll be replacing my diff parts soon.

Talking about that 2 bearings on the motor mount (1060), Do regular checks on them as they take the most abuse from the motor and all that bashings. Was checking on mine and found them to be gritty.

Given the spare cash, I'll buy some better grade bearings to replace them.
