Thanks, I see some of the F104 chassis use a smaller lipo battery. What kind of battery are they and who makes them?

Do you mean Shorty Lipos like the Reedy #602?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you mean shorty packs. Lots of brands to choose from, I like SMC and Fantom Racing, but Reedy, CRC, Revtech, Team Epic, Orion and other big names also make nice ones. Protek (AMain brand) also has a shorty now, might be worth checking out.

If you're racing something like 21.5, try to go for the low internal resistance ones (like SMC and Fantom Racing offer ). As a side note, I'm pretty sure they're both made in the same factory, but as are most of the above I'd guess.

I run the counterweight. Just install the bearings in it and slide it on the axle. Then put your left wheel hub on and set your endplay before tightening the hub setscrew.

Hey Alex, No, these are the same diameter as a regular touring car shock/damper spring, but they have a shorter length. I don't think these will fit inside of a shock body, unless they're really big shocks.

If you're talking about this shock, then yes.

I'm going to try racing at my local club and I'm thorn up on what to get. On my list: Sakura FGX, F104W and an F104. The Sakura would probably end up cheaper because it already includes hopup parts as standard. Any thoughts? We would mainly be using rubber tires.
