Can anyone identify these parts? Looks like adjustable camber but I'm not sure if its for a 103, 104, 109?

TIA!

Video from our Main this past weekend. You can see just how close our racing is in the video. If you make a mistake it takes 4 perfect laps to make up just a little time. These are all F-104's. I think mine was the only Pro and the rest are X1's. I was running Silver can as was BP Shadow. Dish, Mark R, Jeff Z, and Ted Hammer where running brushless 21.5. The cars are all very very close. I think Ted won the TQ this weekend by 0.27 over me. Every car on the track ran with in 2 or 3 tenths of one another.

Wheels? Bodies? Can you get the wing sets without buying a body? Tires? Mark is right. You are a pusher. lol

Well I'm glad you are around to do all the leg work for us. It makes it a bunch easier to get a class going with a guy like you hanging around. My guess is in two weeks we will have 2 heats of F1!

ON that video.

Ted was TQ'd and I was 2nd but he made a small mistake early on and I was able to sneek past him for the lead. He then had his nose up my diffuser for what felt like 30 minutes! After seeing the video it turns out it was only 4 minutes or so. lol My car might only be 180mm wide but I can drive it like its 2 foot wide when in the lead. I can't wait to get another shot at him next week. I've made many changes to my car since that video was taken. Rumor has it I will be traction rolling now. ( I doubt it though)

I just checked my car and it weighs 1084 grams. Has anyone ever heard of a min weight for F1? Or is it a non-issue since most guys are adding weight to their cars?

I'm curious if there is a way to mount the pit shimizu tires to the hpi rims. Or is there a way to convert it to use tamiya wheels. I saw where you could mount them to the tamiya rubber wheels with a little modification. Maybe it's the same thing with hpi rubber wheels?

I got a couple guys local with hpi's and they are having big traction issues with the stock tires. No surprise there! They would like to use the pit 571/572 that I'm using.
