Hi im about to buy a F104 pro and was wondering what would be a good starting point for pinion/spur. I run indoors on a tight track with a silvercan.

Thanks

You can start at about 55mm rollout

ex: 60mm rear tire 93 spur 27 pinion

Couple of newby questions.
1. What pinions and spurs come in the kit?
2. If running the stock gears and standard rubber tyres, what would the rollout be?
3. How can I work out the rollout?

Has anybody experimented with the Exo-tek chassis kit for the F104? It turns it into a link car among other modifications.

The 104pro comes with 93T and 104T spurs with a 25t Pinion in the Tamiya 0.4.
If you have got the F104 it comes with a 63T Spur and 17T pinion in tamiya 0.6.

If you want to play with rollout i suggest a tamiya spur adaptor and that enables you to use either 48p or 64p spur and pinions which can be easier to use.

Rollout will vary depending on track etc, but you while fit that the kit spur/pinion is a good starting point for most situations.

For rollout, go to www.gearchart.com. This is a handy site to work out rollout etc.

i got to have a run with it through the week, and without too much work being put into it re set-up, I was running the exact times as i was with the standard F104pro which I have been running for almost 12 months, and I believe that with a bit of time invested in the set-up and learning what changes will work on my track, I'm confident that I will be much quicker with this new chassis.

The quality is very good, built time was quick, and spares are available soon as well.I know with a another F104 pro runner at my track, it got a lot of interest.

I hoping others who have purchased the kit will share some setups soon as well.

Are there any spur gears that are a direct fit for the 104?

Just get yourself the 2 dollar spur gear spacer and then get yourself a 48pitch spur gear and pinions of your choosing... So much easier and more convenient.

I prefer 64p. My car is silent.

Thats coo. Just figure I'd throw that out there. If you really want to go to the smaller servo, May I suggest taking it even further and get a small esc. The Tekin B1 for 1/18 scale cars. There are a few guys who run that set up at the track I run at. Lightens up the car even more. You will need to run a power cap for the servo though or you will release the smoke

Anyone have an idea where one could mount an old style transponder in the 104?

The clubs that host the TCS's here use the old style bulky transponders as personals are not that big here yet.......
