Thanks for the information. My Sauber F1.07 will look even better with the more appropriate grooved tires.

IRS also made one. I'm sure the design came straight from Heaven, sure of it. There is no other explanation how something so simple can alleviate so much frustration.

Default F60 body and wing

Has anyone raced with the F60 body and wings? How does it compare to the F104 body and wings? Any difference in handling?

Do you mean the F104 diff assembly?
it will only fit if you use the F104 axle, it is shorter on the diff side to go inside the diff unit (or you could cut down an F103 axle)

Doesn't this mod (104 diff in a 103 car) necessitate using 104 wheels which are narrower? If so, the wider 3Racing F109 wheels could be used b'c they have the same BIG hex adapter as the F104.

F103 wheels have the exact same hex. They are just wider offset. The axle/diff should be a drop in deal.

Thanks Rob! While you're solving our problems, can you say specifically which arbors fit the front wheels of the F104? I tried three different pancar arbors last weekend, but haven't found one that fits the F104 front wheels yet.

I have heard using one of the diff gear adaptor rings on the f103 arbor to take up the slack will work. I have also used a dirt oval front tire adaptor as well (b4 type rim).

TRG or someone is supposed to have a 104 arbor.

can somebody come up with a barcode sticker for the f 60 ?

i have seen some of you guys work when it comes to making decals. the f 60 comes with every other sticker to make it look realistic except for the barcode. i dont see why one should buy a complete decal set just to complete the car.

what are most people doing with their f60 ?
