Great, just great. I hope that does not happen for little while. Just when I find out how much fun these cars are to drive with foams there is talk of them getting discontinued.

That's what I'd gathered. So if you intend to run your GT, better be now or never.

I have run my GT for 2 years now, and have no regrets from 1st day of my purchase. There were times that my GT was a little untamed, but I have it all figured out now. It took me 1 year odd to learn a lot of tuning the GT/RWD kits, and the way it runs and handle, the likes and dislikes, etc.. Finally I have it running fast and proudly at the track, tamed, in the last eight months.

I'm still trying to get the confirmation on the discontinuation of the GT from other sources, so for now, we will keep running it, cross our toes and hope for the best.

The're not decals. He did those with an old Stika vinyl cutter.

He also did a couple for my Lola/Mazda.

Wow, great looking car. Thanks for the info on the decals. I guess I will just have to look at other ways to come up with other race car themes for my F103GT.

I just bought the 3Racing motor pod with fan for my F103GT. Where do I hook up the wires? Do I plug it into an extra receiver channel or should I hard wire it to the motor or battery leads? The fan says 7.2v.

Just buy a receiver plug that will fit into your receiver and solder the wires together.

MD, thanks for the reply. I did as you suggested. I'll have to get pics up of my car as soon as I get the body painted. I'm hoping to complete it during the weekend.

Seems that Tamiya is not forsaking the F103 chassis. Check this out.

It looks like the old RS chassis

The name F103RM is new though. Guess we will have to wait and see whats up! Either way, our endurance racing season with the F103's is just around the corner!

Wow, this is great news. I am glad to see it with foam tires like before. I don't know how long this will be available though. The part number appears to be a limited edition part number.
