Default Ride

I normally run the shimizu tyres on my F104, however, I was talking with someone this evening who had just recently bought Ride tyres and wheels for his F104.

He has said that in the kit position, the front wheels do not fit. They hit the bottom of the king pin. What he has had to do is compress the lower spring (kit of like preloading) in order to get the wheel onto his car.

Does anyone else have this problem with their ride wheels? I haven't seen it personally as he's going to show me more next time we meet, but I'm interested to see how people have gotten around this problem.

sounds like he's trying to use f103 wheels.

Thanks, I'm up on that. The problem appears to be the diameter of the wheels, as in they're not tall enough on the inside. hmmm

The new Ride 104 wheels fit, I run them.
You have to adjust the ride height so the kingpin clears, same as with the Tamiya wheels, not optimum for low height, but nothings perfect.

Thanks for that. I had a feeling it was something like that. So how ride hight do you need to run on the front to get them to fit?

I haven't bought these personally, but they're in my sights....

7mm Fr, 6mm Rr.
I have approx 60mins of runtime on this set with no wear.
S1 Fr
S1 Rr
Carpet, High grip asphalt and Med Grip asphalt, they have corner entry to mid corner understeer, and are neutral on corner exit.

On the high grip track the front's chatter quite a bit.

Could this battery fit in the F104 pro.

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-bat...h-p-27878.html

I'm currently using 5000 mah NIMH battery, and weighed it this week at race day and came in at over 1380 grams.....a real pig, so looking at getting some lipo's to run my tekin brushless 21.5 and eventually a 17.5.

it looks the right size, but would be interested to hear from someone using them if possible.

does anyone have any info about the zen or bomber modifcations these guys are talking about?... do most folks here run f104 with primarily tamiya hop-ups?

trying to get my car ready and just want to make sure it will be up to snuff against other f1 cars like the f109 and f103 chassis

Thanks!

I don't know anything about the packs you linked to..... but the Orion Rocket and older Carbon Series batteries are quite lightweight, about 200g each and seem to have plenty of runtime for 540J racing. If I remember correctly, the Orion Rocket 4000mAh pack isn't much heavier and would have plenty of runtime for brushless racing.
