  3. Thanks Terry. Once the chassis and upper deck are replaced are most of the other F103 parts compatible? I want (for now) to stick with a single seater style race car.
  4. Much-More UK have now donated one of their super cool 4WD Mini kit's - not sure if it's a Genetic, Express or Active version, but they're all cool) as a Raffle prize.

  8. Sorry, I thought I'd subscribed to the thread The Mini Se7en class permits any hop up other than to the areas listed in the 1st thread, so yep, Universals are permitted. Any of the D60 Radials work well. I favour the Supergrips, current club series leader uses M Grips, the majority use standard Radials. Rule ammendment for Class 1 Diffs are now open. Gear, Ball, Oneway? or Spool? your choice. More good news We now have support from Tamiya UK as well as Much-More UK. Raffle prizes include a Tamiya M03 Kit

  12. http://www.rcracer.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7067 You could have one of 2 different uprights. The standard M03 set or the M03M set. They have different bearing sizes. Not sure which you have but the link is a similar question asked on the RC Mini forum. 3 Racing M03M Page http://www.3racing.com.hk/x_products.jsp?x...20Tamiya%20M03M 3 Racing M03 Page http://www.3racing.com.hk/x_products.jsp?x...%20Tamiya%20M03
