Quick correction... LMP1 should include up to 235mm GTP bodies since the Pro10/10th Pan class is 235mm

I was on a web site and I saw an F103gt with an Audi R8C body. Who sells that body and were can you buy it?

The Audi R8 kit (black/silver) was on the F103LM chassis from around 1998 period.
I doubt you will find that kit any more.

Other F103LM kits were:
Porsche 911GT1
Toyota TS-020 GT-one

They used the older F1 wheels with the F103 F1 Rubber Slick tyres.

some pics of my courage, fitted on a custom made chassis.
it features a more authentic diffuser/rear-wing structure made of carbon fibre. it is actually quite stiff, light and also strong through the use of some kevlar in the wing supports.
more pics of the chassis and light installation to come.

Nice.
Wouldn't you be able to cut out the body the same way you did and attach the wing to an ABC diffuser?

B.A.:
yes, that should be possible. the wing supports and the diffuser are one single part, which makes the whole thing more rigid, i guess. but it would be possible to attach the supports to the ABC diffuser.
but the chassis i built would not work with that diffuser...

BTW, I have that diffuser and it fits perfectly under the Courage body. It does change the ride height too but looks cool.

guys,

im considering attaching F-201 wheels and tires on my F-103GT for a project. has anyone done this already? if so, any modifications done to the chassis or was it a straightforward "bolt-on" job?

thanks in advance
