But i just wanted to know if setting up the suspension on this car might be similar to the old f-103 or like a touring car? coz i dont want to screw up the setup of the F201 when i race it for the TAC 2003...
they are totally different type of car.

You run chassis suspension on F1xx while you run swing arm suspension on F2xx.

They are not the same

Tommi- I am VERY calm!!! Pls read my post again........I was just saying I'm not an expert on the car because I'm still building it!! However, I'm still prepared to help...if I can!!! What is wrong with that????

I didn't hint that you were an expert neither.....now I'm totally confused!!!!!

Maybe I should have added an 'I' before the don't.............but it still makes sense!!!!!!

Hey....now I am being seriously 'misquoted'...read my original post again!!!!!!! I was genuinely try to help. It is not really necessary to add an 'I' before 'don't' because later on in the sentence I refer to 'I' which means I was talking about MYSELF not being the expert!!!!
