if you can wait, I would suggest getting the Dark Blue. I've ben trying to find the right colour to use for the Red Bull RB6, so I tried the PS 4 Blue backed with black and the weekend, and I must say it really didn't make the PS 4 that much different. I tried varying coats of the blue and black with resulted in little difference.

Steel- finish races... agreed
CF- bends but goes back straight... still running original Cf shafts in both my cars
Alloy- bends (fairly easily) and stays bent
I have not had an issue with my CF axle....yet. Where can I find the steel axle if I need?

They come with the stock kits. Sounds like you have the F104 Pro, which comes with a carbon fiber axle. Tamiya should have them in stock.

i'll play with that combo over the weekend and see how it goes. I hadn't thought the silver may be a option over the black. you learn something new everyday....thanks for that

I used normal lipos with deans since i dun wan to drill or cut parts of the top deck.. only thing is i have to remove the esc holder everytime i want to take out the lipo.

You want the weights at low as possible. I placed some behind the servo and and at the sides of the lower chassis near the rear. You want some kind of a balance to it.. of coz you can place some weight at the rear to improve rear traction.

.
which lipo fit for you? i tried a SMC and TP 5000 and couldnt fit them with any holders. i had to go to a 'stickpack' shaped lipo, which only needed changes to the front battery stay.

SO far Thunderpower lipos and H-energy fits well. I think the SMC and TP5000 should fit..

The lipos are deans plug connected and i forgot to mention that i snip away a small portion of the round plastic that the metal post goes in to. just enough to still hold the post in.

I try to take a pic and post it later.

I use a PEAK 4000mah lipo. I had to shave down the battery bracket in the front slightly, no big deal.

Anyone have a good place to get decals other than D-Drive Sports? They are sold out of a lot of the good stuff.
