Default F104 Pro Setup for Sale

Hi all,
New to the forum. I was going to get back into On-Road but decided to go Off-Road instead. I have an F104 Pro with a few upgrade parts, a Mamba Max w/5700Kv motor, and a Spektrum dx2s w/telemetry for sale (includes servo). All are new in box. Looking to get $500 plus shipping for the whole setup. Price is pretty firm, do the math and you'll know why. I have an EBAY rating of 195, so I am legit. PM me for more info and pictures.

No they wont fit as the F10 uses a touring car size hex front and rear

I have always thought that the new fronts are softer than the stock ones.

New option Rubber tires for F-104
Rear Softer, or lower temp rubber.
Front harder

The Temp chart with the Tamiya option fronts says they are for lower ambient temps so I would think they are softer. I know the description says medium/hard, but the temp chart indicates otherwise?

Hmm, I was just repeating what I heard from a reputable source, don't have a set yet.
Will need to inquire with the Tamiya locals for updates.

Calvin,

Your car looked like it was working pretty well with the rubbers on it last weekend. What did you think of the option rears? I just picked up a set yesterday. Is no insert the way to go with the options as well?

Jeff,
I used Kit front and Option rear, I used stock inserts for both front and rear.
I drilled the vent hole a little bigger for both wheels (+1 on the opposite side).
