Use some paper towel and laquer thinner to clean off any of the glue that gets on the side walls.
Its actually a pretty easy task once you do it a few times.
Thankyou

the ceramic bearings are certainly expensive for the 104 when you only get 9 compared to other makes the same price and you may get 16.

what are peoples thoughts about

I just searched around and bought the sizes I need from various manufactures(at Amain). I did not bother ordering a kit of bearings for the 104. It will run me less than $50 for the 8 I need in my car.

I believe the HBR soft tires are the softest in the Tamiya range.
If your lacking rear grip try the D-Drive 25 shore tires.
You will notice that the car will be easier to drive.

As in it pushes the front of the car to the outside of the corner?
Or slides completely to the ouside?
I find the GP-Speed tires ok.
I use 30 rear and 45 front or 25 rear and 40 front.
If i got a very high grip track i use 36 at the rear and 40 at the front.

Use the B type front rubber and A type at the rear.
This will give you a nice car to drive with.
At least it did for me

Well for carpet foam would be the best choice but if you have to run rubber start with A at the rear,B at the front,really soft setup for the rear,zero camber and hard front springs.
You can sauce the tires if allowed.
Rear complete and for starters none front.
If this goes well keep to it.
If you still have to much bite at the front,try CA glue to the side walls at the front.
Good luck.

regards Roy
