to fit the f60 wing on your HPI you need to mount the "rear" hole, and drill a new front one

I know this is buried within the 241 pages and I cannot find it. My question is. Which arbors do I need for the rear and fronts. If you have links that would be killer

Hi traction = faster car

Low traction = depends...it may be harder to handle, but you can put the weight back on with lead. The advantage is the weight will be exactly where you need it.

i know for sure.. the 104 needs to be balance in order to get proper traction in high or low grip conditions.. almost exactly like a real F1. So having weight for ballast is a good thing.

Maybe because the car is too long compared to 103

Does anyone know the part number for the double sided tape that holds the foam tires on the rims?

I use the 3mdouble sided tape at walmart. its $5 a roll of like 25ft and it has held up always. Even on 2.5R brushless motors on foam.

Mike,

Ordered my kit last Friday. I see it shows In Stock but lower says ships Nov 3rd. If the item isn't in stock is there any way to set it to show Pre-Order? It just seems a little confusing.

I assume your still on track for shipping Wednesday?

The standard 104 servo horn is really tight on my servo. Is there a way to fix this? Or do they sell a metal servo horn that will work with the 104 steering setup?
