  1. Closest stuff I found on the internet.
  2. Hi, I recently bought a couple of used F103 (F103RX and LM) with some vintage motors and ESCs. I am used to newer stuff so I need help on a few things. 1. Can you help me identify those motors? I can see this one is an LRP V10 but don't know anything about the specific model. Could it be 13T x 2? The gauge of the wire looks quite thin to me. The pitch is very high, sounds amazing.--- -------- The other one is GM racing but can't identify the model. The closest thing I've found is a GM Racing purple. Any idea about model and turns? The gauge of the wire looks quite thick, opposite to the LRP one. The pitch here different, not too high and milder more silent. both gauges together, left GM right LRP, three poles both. No ROAR numbers. My guess is both are from around 1999-2003 ?¿ Any special value? My idea is to use them, unless I might have a jewel in which case I might sell them, but stickers are in quite bad condition.. 2. The motors where paired with these ESCs LRP indy 200 and GM V12. I ma not plannig to use the ESCs, not sure if work, too much hustle for me to set them up.. Can I use these motors with a modern ESC like a hobbywing 1060 and 2s lipos? I understand I can but if both are lower than 18T I can fry the ESC right? So I should get a better ESC for brushed? I know the Schotky diode can't be used in reverse mode, so I plan to remove it because I am not a runner, but should I keep these capacitors if I decide to use them with newer ESC? Thank you!
  3. I agree here. Too big for miniZ, I would go for M-chassis or as said, 1/12 pan car but if the pavement is not perfect and it's dusty I think M-chassis is the best. Some people underestimate M-chassis as a minor thing but it's super fun and ultra hopupable.
  4. Hi, it seems like there is no stock for Tamiya F103 front foam tyres... Nowhere.. Impossible. Any idea where I can get a pair? Or where I could find something non Tamiya brand but working? I am not interested on racing, it's just for a restoration. What about the F104 ones? Are so different? Maybe thinner? Thanks
  5. Yes, definetely it's a Frankenstein! Any idea about those aparently not cur rubber tires 37mm wide?
  6. Thank you guys for the answers, really helpful. Makes sense.. But I mistook about the body it was an Audi R8C not R8R.
  7. Just one wheel? It feels like it's been done on purpose but maybe!
  8. HI, I recently bought a used F103 at eBay. The seller has no idea about what he was selling, so I can't get any answers from him.. So maybe you guys can help me out.. This is the chassis. The body was a very weird Audi R8R Le Mans body, not released by Tamiya, and presumably by Carson or Carisma. these pieces were also included in a bag three springs for the front suspension, the damper mount, the antenna holder and a weird spur with a much smaller pitch. These are the rear wheels, 37mm wide and 60mm diameter. The rims are the classic 5 spoke ones both rears and fronts. Don't seem to be cut by the owner from the classic 45mm to 37mm, as both keep the semigloss finish at the sides to glue the good year stickers , which in this case are only at the rears and are yellow ?¿ Even more weird is that front left tire is conical !! With all this I am so confused about which chassis this could be originally.. My best guess is that it was an F103RS Most parts are the same, but there are some questions: Which rear wheels are these?? The Group C ones have more diameter and don't fit this rim.. Could it be a Le Mans Toyota GT-ONE or similar? Did these cars have those 37mm wide rears? Why one of the front wheels is conical? Is this a way to achieve some sort of caster? Why the damper mount was changed to this central pillar thing? Is there any advantage with this system? The damper angle is totally different.. more extreme. How come did it include an antenna holder? Maybe this is a proof it was a sport prototype like the GT-ONE? Is this an F103RS, or not? Maybe this is just a frankenstein F103 built with all sorts of parts? Thanks!
  9. Really? How would the procedure be in that case? thanks
  10. Oh! from L&L... Thank you! A pity I am in Spain and shipping plus custom taxes makes it not worth it for me.. I love the difusor too.
  11. WOW!! This is so smart... And this body... Beautiful!! Is it easy to find nowadays??
  12. Oh I see! Sorry I read Finishing instead of Fishing... Thanks! Sounds like a good idea, I would love to get these picture to totally understand it.
  13. I recently found a nice and rare McLaren MP4/4 body which is already painted but is also somehow "bended" ( see picture ) I think it might be because it was not properly stored or maybe its a paint effect. I would like to put it back into its original straight shape but I am not sure how I might do it.. One idea is straighten it up with some tape, as in the picture, and then glue three small skewers along the body, so once the glue is hard, the skewrs keep everything straight. But I am not sure if I will still have space for the frition plate and the damper... Maybe in this area it should be an aluminium strip which gets into the body cavity? What about heating the body and somehow reshape it? Sounds risky.. Any ideas? thanks.
  14. Thank you guys. For the low profile servo option.. do I need any special accessory?
