Can anyone verify the bearing sizes for F104 and F103? I need to order some from Avid.

Is the other Red Bull the Mark Webber car? This one looks great. What kind of body did you use for this one?? How did you manfacture the spoiler/wing on the rear end of the body?? That just looks awesome.

Hope you understand what I mean??

thanks for the comment. the body is just the Tamiya F60 body. The 'Shark Fin' comes with the body kit. I used D Drive decals for most part except the front wings which I used a Deep Blue vinyl decal to get as close as possible to the body colour, which I used Tamiya PS59.

Been burning up a lot of silvercans as of late (water and air break in).
I am at a 47.25mm roll out on a foam/high grip carpet track.
I am running a fan and using a heatsink motor plate.
Thought it was my esc (gtx) but I just went to a fx pro
and burnt one up last night. I am actually a bit lower
rollout than most of my fellow racers (fast guys are @48-50mm)
and they seem to be holding up better.
My car is free (all bearings check out).
I would think that I was over geared but a few drivers are smoking
me down the straight.

What else to try?Could a cheap lipo cause problems?
Beginning to think it's my driving style.

Thanks for the update. Really helpfull. didn't know the shark Fin came with the kit. That leaves a lot of options open.
I definitly gonna buy that F104 ferrari kit. Do you know if the Shark fin also comes with the Mclaren kit??

THANKS AGAIN

I believe that is the original diffuser from Tamiya.
Got me one on my car also.
