Default How does the F104 handle with F60 body and wings

Just like the title says gentleman. Has anyone noticed any differences in handling?? I love the scale look of the F60 but not sure how it handles. Its a little cold in New Jersey today for me to try the F60 out.

Now grant it I only bought the F60 body kit, slapped it on my Pro chassis and it handles like a dream come ture. In fact our track temp up here in NV is cool also but with the Shimizu's it's not a factor.

We just had a big indoor carpet race (slowbirds). At any given time the 104's were just as fast/faster than my 103.
Finish order in the main was 104,103 (me),103,104,104 (but the guy was running a STRONG 2nd the entire race and lost a 540J).103,109,104.
The 109 was running the same lap times as the top three but smoked a motor.
I am no on-road wheel man but a few of the fast folks said that my car looked like it was locked in better than the 104s. If I go back I might
let one of the fast guys take a few laps and see what numbers they can put down.
