I wouldn't say that the SP-1 has a delicate front end. I've smacked plenty of pipe with nothing broken. The assembly of the front end is a bit painful the first time due to some soft plastic pillow ball screws, but carbon-reinforced plastic parts should be hitting the web in about a week or two. With that shipment, we're also expecting aluminum upgrades, one of which will be the lower front suspension pivot ball. Those two upgrades will make the build super easy.

The only other weakness is the rear links, you want to get the AE links and pivot balls, as mentioned in the thread. But seriously, with the kit setup and Pit tires, my SP-1 was dialed on the carpet the first night out. It's a great car at a killer price. If you're just looking for something different, this may be it

Having said that... CRC is coming out with an F1 soon. That may put all of the others to shame

Yes that's the one, basically it converts a V2 into a TRF 101.

Hey Dumper/Brian,

That's a good looking car with some interesting features. I'm curious about the dual damper tubes, what's the logic behind that? I've never seen anything like that.

Most people who run pan car do not carry 100k for tube lube. Dual tubes gives you the ability to run a thinner lube and they will give more consistant dampening. You can also fine tune, by running one thickness in one tube and another thickness in the other tube. Plus we were told it can't be done. Obviously it can be done.

I have a Tamiya F104, 58475, and want to convert the front end to the wide, or 103, style.

I have been searching and have not found all the answers yet, hopefully some of you F1 guys can help.

I need the 50503 plastic or 54153 carbon fiber front arms, correct?

Do I need 3x42 turnbuckles?

Anything else?

What are the wheel options? Will anything that fits the 103 work for the front and rears on the 104?

Thanks.

Get the carbon F103 arms, they're stronger and stiffer.

Yes, you need longer turnbuckles. You also need different front wheel bearings and the front axle spacers.

I forget if the steering knuckle axles are the same size though.

dont forget the king pins are also different. To convert any regular f104 to a wide f103 (f104w) front end you will need the front arm set (plastic or carbon) longer turnbuckles (they sell the F1 turnbuckle set) and 103 king pins.

For the wider car you will want to use 103 wheels and tires, the front 103 wheels also use 5x8 bearings instead of 5x10.

Thanks for the replies, I have purchased the parts I will need.

As for wheels, I can track down the Tamiya options. What other vendors have the F103 size wheels?

3Racing sells a complete front end for their F109 that will fit on the F103 and give you the width you want. Others will have to give you opinions on the plastic and how flexible it is.
