Charles,
Try this one 3485036
It is from the Tyrell 6 wheeler, but it should be the same part you are looking for, and it is in stock

Hello everyone, I'm trying to help a buddy out with his 104. Does anyone have a setup with foam tires that is even close to the 103's speed in cornering?

Thanks for your help and advice.

I don't know how close you hope to get, but have you read the d.jun article on the 104 build ?

I have not read that article, is it on this site? And as for how close, we know it will probably never be as fast as the 103 but if can get close that would be good!

If anyone is looking for a roller, my F104 Pro TCS winner is for sale here on the 'tech. Gotta pay some bills, but I'll be back sooner or later.

sorry to hear that new, Greg...

if you sell this before the weekend and want a F1 ride, just lemme know...the F103 is about 75% ready to go...nothing a couple of hours on Friday can solve

One of my fellow racers used these last Sunday on his F104. Firstly, a little awkward mounting them on the Tamiya foam rims - you need to be quite adept at gluing. Very good grip in cooler conditions, but go off (lose grip) quite quickly on a warmer track. Ambient temps were mid 20's (deg C) which were on the warm side for this compound.

On a related note, I started on the new Tamiya soft rubbers, but they don't seem to work at our home track. Others had good results with the Ride tyres, but I ended up going for the B foams, since they are just so much more fun once the track gets a little heat into it.

Interestingly, our track is currently a clockwise configuration and after about two meets, my left hand tyres were about 1-1.5mm smaller than the rights

That Mach track looks fabulous - gotta find a reason to be over there
