Kevin, if you have one of the old F1 aluminum shocks and silver spring for sale, give me a shout at [email protected] and let's see if we can make a deal. That's the only part I don't already have...
Hi Doc - I know for sure I have the new blue TRF shock with threaded spring perch that came out for the F103GT and I think I have the old silver F103 spring. I will do some checking and let you know. On my F103 shelf queen, I think I actually have the pink TA02 shock. I will shoot you an e-mail after I check and confirm.

This is the shock and spring I'm looking for. The shock may actually be one of the older teflon piston gold/pink shocks but the spring is specific to the F101/102. It looks black in the picture but it's actually chrome silver. It may have come on the yellow plastic shock original to those kits.

Sure aye. Anything is possible.

Last I checked they like to keep numbers low for the Canadian Nats. Usually top 5 in any Canadian-regional qualify for their nats. I don't know what their allowances are if you skip the regionals to run their nats, might confirm participation with Tom before buying your plane ticks or tire chains eh.

I suppose.

At any rate, I've accepted that they won't let me run Mini up there and felt much better when THIS showed up yesterday from Japan!

That was pretty cool! A bit before my time, so I never heard of this show. Punky had a pretty sweet Frog.

I guess I am dating myself when I can remember the Punky Brewster show when it was on...... during the original episodes. Cool seeing Frogs, Hornets, Subaru Brat and a Willy's Wheeler. Turn 1 on the start looked a like like turn 1 starts of today.

Doc - I know which spring you are refering to from the older F1 cars. Will let you know if I can round one up for you.

Did this come with an F1 body? If so, was it prepainted?

The F103RM comes with a clear "M" type body, "BEST" decal sheet and wings as well as foam tires.

Hey Larrio,

I heard a rumor the F103 rm class will soon replace the F103gt class at TCS races during the 2008 season and be an exhibition class at the 2008 Nationals. 30 car open wheel fields would be very cool so see again.

Could you please elaborate on this rumor?

Marty
