When you buy the Tamiya aluminum motor mount it has an aluminum left side

BP Shadow,

Thanks. Is it only for the F104 or is there one for an F103?

Only for the F104, but can be used on the F103. There are some aftermarket full aluminum rear pods available, including the front & rear.

I have a Ddrive conversion built up with the 104 rear pod on it as well as the 104 diff. Still waiting for a few small parts for it, but I will post pics of the install later on

BP,

Does the Type C body that you have on the site fit the D-Drive chassis?

Yes the Type C body fits on the DDrive chassis. the front wing needs to be trimmed slightly to mate up with the front of the chassis, but nothing too bad.

I have to get a F104X1, even the box cover art looks very cool. Yes, we need decal set for the current Renault or we can use this one's decal set:

Default Vyger

Vyger, any latest build projects? This thread is the only one that I go back in time to look at cars you built. Keep up the good work man. Your build pictures are way better than most r/c magazines.

You wont see pictures from Tamiya because of the Cigerette police. Even ust the Marlbro colors is a problem these days.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...
