Which body do you plan to use for the Lotus?

Default Roll out

I got a 21.5 and a 64p adapter for my F104. I was told a 89 or so roll out is a good place to start with a sphere tc esc. Is there a good size spur to run so I can make adjustments using my pinion? Or some recomended spurs and pinions to keep on hand. I'm new to roll outs, so any help would be great. One more question, How much of a difference in roll out makes a noticable difference? Do I need to re-gear every time my tires wear 1mm? Just in case it mattters I run outdoors in Camarillo most if the time.

Any help would be great, and if i'm heading in the wrong direction let me know.

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

What 64 pitch adapter are you using for the 104 ?
I have one for the 103 but was told there was no 64p adapter for the 104...

I had the F60 in my hands, plan was the same, but side pontoons are way wrong compared to the Lotus ones.

Does anyone have a good picture of the Tech TY body? Looks similar

The adaptor is the same for both cars.

I'm really confused...
Are we talking about the same thing ?
The small plastic gear ring that replaces the ball bearing on the spur gear that allows you to use standard 64 pitch spurs instead of the tamiya spur ?
I've been told by more then one person that this will only work on the 103 and NOT the 104...

Is this the part we are talking about ? : http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-f10...1-p-27621.html

Mine looks the same except it is a tamiya and it says F104 spur gear adapter.

http://rcmarket.com.hk/index.php?cPa...r_id=16&page=3

Its the 8th item down. I hope I have the right part.
Any help with a spur gear / roll out starting point would be great.

I have both the Tamiya F104 piece and the 3Racing F103 part and they are exactly the same - just the tamiya's is black and the 3Racing version is a white

and i was able to use both on my F104 and my F104

i was a little worried at first about using the f103 one on my f104 - but it fit perfectly, i'm using a xenon spur gear from my cyclone on the f104...then i saw the tamiya f104 piece, so i got that...

after all, the spur gear side wheel adapter is pretty much identical between the F103's and the F104 - so there shouldn't have been any confusion from the people who told you

So any insight on starting points for spurs and pinions, I was hopping to get to the hobby shop after work.

Thanks
