Im using a F104x1 with Ride R1s at the moment but the car is very difficult to drive with out spinning under power. No problems when the track is 20c +. Im cleaning every run and using warmers without sauce (tyres cool down too much by the time racing starts)
Sorry if this has already been answered.

I'd run Pit Shimizu 575 Soft's on the rear and either 573 medium fronts or 571 soft fronts depending on how much steering you like / track conditions.

The standard it seems for the F104 are the Pit Shimizu 571/572 combo which is a soft front and hard rear. For our track in Hawaii (which I imagine close to FL in track temps and humidity) the 571 fronts did not work well so I was advised to try the 574 fronts with the 572 rears and this combo seems to work the best of all the tires I've tried on our track. I would say try the 571/572 combo first and if you need more steering from that go to the 574/572 combo.

Hey guys, Thanks for all the tire tips. but i'm still having a really hard time getting my car to stick. Actually, all of us are struggling.

We tried Ride R1s and Pit Shimizu 573 front 575 rears, we can't get the cars to stop spinning out just accelerating! lol We race with 4wd Sedan's and Minis, they use Sorex 28s, and they have grip galore, but the 8 F1 guys are practically on ice...

I use my F104v2 with a full length battery, and a carbon rear axel. Everything is as soft as can be in the rear, but i'm box stock in setup except for ride height, and no binding of my 21.5 motor wires. I'm planning on putting back the metal axel, and using a shorty lipo positioned more forward.

I've checked my tweak, the car is true. What do you guys suggest? What info would you guys need to help us?

you should soften the center and the lateral damper
use some tire sauce and warm the tire if you can.

in desesperate case , you can add weight on the rear pod.

For low grip conditions try 577/579

What is the difference between the PS-0575 and the PS-0579? What's R1-Soft vs R3-Soft Compound?

Are you steering to the left on power from a standing start or coming out of a corner on power? It may be your diff is too tight for asphalt. It could be that you diff side tire is over powering the left side of the car. Try loosening your diff a bit until the car pulls straight forward.

I find the R1's to be great when the track gets warmer. For example, during the morning of the ACT Titles, I ran the Shimizu 572's and they were great. As the day got warmer, I swapped to the R1's. During the Muchmore Masters, even the 572's struggled, but the 575's were much better...
