That means you can go racing for a total of around $500/600
Those combos are about $270 on eBay so plus a servo and receiver and you'd be mobile for $350 or so if you already had a radio!

That`s true. I was presupposing that you started from scratch, meaning Li-Po battery, charger, tires, some basic tools etc.
But if you have radio and some basic RC stuff $350/400 is realistic and makes the F113 an even better buy.

Thanks addicted blue. I ordered some front end accessories last night. I also upgraded to the Exotek front end.

I'm converting my car to the a1GP 2009 f1 style body so I went ahead and picked up some similar wheel / tire combinations as well. I'm so excited to head out to the local track. I picked up this carbon rear shaft, 54162. Will this not work with the 104 rear end?

Good day to all! Here's the update on my built. I am loving the realism of this car.







Will post more once I finish the body. Thanks and cheers!

Los Angeles Sunday's winter track test:[/SIZE]

1. If you have not PM me your name/transporter number please email it ASAP to marcos@WhatBrakes.com
Its the only thing you need to do for per-registration.

2. Bring water, food and suntan lotion (if you need to bring some grid girls that's OK too )

3. Bring your easy up (optional) and power supply

See you Sunday!

today i went to practice with my F104X1 with the TCS tires and the car is still getting faster and better. Today i was faster then the local guys who are running FGX cars, last week the local guys were a fraction faster then me but today it was the other way arround
They are all running with super soft rear tires while i'm using the TCS tires who are medium compound, i'm hoping my 575&579 rear tires will arrive this week so i can have even more rear traction and perhaps go even faster

On carpet last night I tried 574/579 combo and didn't like it as much as 571/572.
