Took a pic of my 2 F103GTs side by side!

(yes, there's a chassis under the Courage shell! )

ORIGINAL: westphill24

Had a close call today. I was finally running my car and after doing a few speed runs down my street I started to see what everyones been talking about with controlling these things. After sliding whenever I put the brake on I was keeping a close eye on the car. But not the road[X(]. It went right under a ladies car , but as soon as she backed up TADAH no harm since the f103 sits so low. It also helped that she was driving a new charger and the must sit a little higher. I did have a couple small scratches on the posts behind the drivers head but nothing really noticeable. Lesson of the day, NO RC's IN THE STREET.
Hope you didn't scratch the Charger !!!! [:@]

hello...new owner of that Courage, from some time now...running 3s lipo on the silvercan......but now I just notice that no more F103 in any stock, since the 15'th aniversary kit are out... and I was thinking to change the rear tire for better grip, thinking of one of those?...don't know if it will clear the archwheels:

I think those foam tire / wheel uses a different adaptor compare to the F103GT, though.. (the GT uses 12mm hex, to run standard touring car wheel..)

I will be getting a few F103R myself, so I am looking forward to it!!

Yes.. the F-1 style wheels are different than your typical touring car wheel..

I have both before.. (I had a Jaguar XJR, it is the same chassis as that C11 you posted) It uses a different way to mount the wheel...
