I run Kawada gears and the tamiya spur adapter and never once had an issue with the spacer coming out. There is bugger all wobble from side to side either. Perhaps the Kawada gears are a better fit?

Probably no help as I have never driven a FF03, but I have an F104Pro and love it to bits, I love fiddling with it and doing my own mods to it etc.

1/10th 2wd Nitro?

Are there any companies still making these?
Are there conversion kits for 4wd?
Or is this just dead as far as manufactures go?

Maybe it's a stupid question... but why don't they use a Pro10 for speed runs?

Thanks for all the replies guys!
So what's the difference between the Associated RC12R5 and the 12R5.1 apart from the $60usd odd price tag?
Is it worth spending the extra money?
