Yes, it will be wider than a 64 pitch spur. All you have to do is sand it down so it is flush with the spur gear. You don't want it to stick out, it will interfere with the diff. I used one and it works great.

Next, I threw on the Spice set and was most impressed. Better grip than the B's and I'd say at least half a second quicker per lap. Car seemed very balanced and was fun to drive.

Finally, put on the new Tamiya rubber set and spun out at the first corner No real preparation, no warmth in them, so I shouldn't have been surprised. Took it easy for a little while and I was also impressed with how responsive they were - grip was generally not bad, but quite unforgiving. Both sets of foams were much more progressive when adhesion was lost. The rubber tyres felt very direct and I ended up turning the steering down a little to compensate.

Overall, however, they weren't as quick as either of the foam tyres, but I suspect that this will be only one data point. They're not scrubbed in yet and the compound seems quite hard, so may suit a warmer track. Not that this evening was cold, but not as warm as our Sunday daytime meets.

I look forward to seeing some more variety in the compounds now that the rims are out.

Have you tried traction compound yet?

Colder asphalt conditions (or carpet)- Paragon FX2/Jack the gripper

Warmer asphalt conditions - Tire Tweak or Corally SXT2.0 .

Tire warmers are always a big plus if you have them.

Question to anybody that already received their F104 F60.
I really like the wheel covers on the F60 and would like to know on which "tree" the covers are included, so I can order that spare part.
Thanks

Default Ordering an F104 pro

Also, for those ordering an F104 pro or F60 Towerhobbies has them for $25 off for public and $35 off and free shipping for members.
$179 shipped to your door on the F104 pro. I promise I have no affiliation with tower, I am just planning to order mine from them as I am a member of their save club and wanted to let others know of the kick ass price.

Got them from a local supplier: www.feralbatteries.com.au

They're not listed on his website, but drop him an e-mail.

Hey Hot-Rod, that kit needs a proper break-in, this Saturday, Be there !
Raced my 104 1S Tuesday, it's actually pretty good on B's.
Not quite up to 103 speed yet, but getting closer.
