The Shimizu 104 rubber tires are made to fit 104 foam rims.

Hi Guys,

We received the Ferrari F60 F104 bodies today.

The F104 rubber tire wheels should be in house tomorrow. Rubber tires are already in stock.

Cheers,
Jeff Yung

yeah, i thought that would happen. when i went to order the car from champ rc they said they couldnt send the paint over seas. so i decided to paint it with the bright red. it isnt done but here is what i got so far. the paint looks like a close match. i have another body that is waiting for the f60 red. that will be the masa body, this is the kimi body.

Does anyone have a F60? How does it handle compared to the pro? I would imagine with black cans or 21.5 they would be equivalent with the same tires. Seems like everyone just gets the body set and tires. I really want to get a F60 just for the stock profile. I want to be the guy with the stock car that can hang. To hell with the bling

Last time I looked that F60 was expensive, then again My Pro was a hunk of change new. What do you mean by "To hell with the bling"?

You know... carbon, aluminum, TRF shock. The F60 can be had for 180 and it comes with esc and motor. Trying to keep it cheap but I want it to handle great for what it is. I might be asking for too much because I have the tendency to drop tons of money on upgrades. This is going to be a huge test for me to keep it bone stock.

Hey Huff.

Tom Slick ran back to back runs last week at Tam AV, between the Pro body and F60 I don't think there was a performance difference.
There is some speculation that the FRP chassis on the F60 may absorb bumps better due to the spring of the material, but once assembled the 2 chassis seem rather similar.

RBF...just got some goodies to try out this weekend Do you remember how Fred mounted his cut inserts. Was the trapezoidal shape pointed towards the rim or away? And did he size to fit off the rim and more towards the tire or was it sized to fit against the rim?

Oh yeah..the F60 body parts set is no joke. It even comes with wheels spats. May have it done on the third of never

i have both, but havent ran the f60 yet. rite away i noticed a difference with the parts. 1 the pro has a carbon shaft, a way better servo saver, stronger tie rod links and you can change wheels without readjusting the diff everytime, the center shock is actualy a shock, the f60 shock is just a spring no fluid. by the time you replace all these things it will have add up to prob more than the pro. the f60 body set is $26. i race my pro and just play with the f60. I think if you want to race get the pro and the f60 body, but if you want to play get the f60 kit. thats just my opinion.
