Does anybody know the differences between two F104 Kits #58431 and #84106 (except lightweight body)? Thanx

Hi,

They have different shock mount designed for the respective motor pods. The EXO103 also has wider body mount locations for F103 bodies and includes extra alloy posts needed for the top plate that the F104 already supplies.
EXO103/104 wheel bases are the same.

Thanks,

Mike

I believe it's a suspension limiter.

They are fine. Attached are pics of the F103RM and also an old school F103 Protoform. F103RM drops right on while on the Protoform I've relocated the rear holes by about 5mm back. Clear bodies don't give it justice but it gives you the idea.
