I have fit the gtx in my 104 and 103 with no issues.You just need to strap the cap to the side of the esc.
Best bet..buy a good used one.
You can get them super cheap now.

Of course it's a Mike R car but the concept is still the same, but looks prettier. Not knocking it at all.

My brother and I both bought the conversion and ran it last weekend at the first so cal UF1 winter series race. He won the A main and loved how much more stable and consistent the car was. I had a torn shock o-ring and didn't realize it so I had no dampening and only took 3rd in the B main. Both of us agree its 100% worth it!

Thanks for the heads up. I was thinking about cutting my top deck now I'll wait.
