No pictures on their website, you can work out what most of them are by their names, but some you have to cross reference them to the pictures on D-Drive to make sure you've chose the right ones. You also have to email them what you want and your address details so they can calculate postage for you.

Hi, new to F1. Just bought one and hope to have it by this weekend.
I was wondering if anyone knows if a 1/10 pancar axle will fit the rear of the F104 and if the 1/10 rear pancar tires are about the same size as the ones for the F104 or F103?

I was looking at this sticker set on Ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...:WNARL:US:1123

Then I realized I like keeping my car looking custom vs replicating a existing car.

So far, it's legal........but I think since you are not altering any parts, but just re arranging things, you should be ok. I haven't had a problem, so far

Hey robk... i was hoping you could do a brief explanation on which f104 to get. I'm about to place an order and cant decide if i want the pro or if i want the 104 f60 i know ones more comp spec and ones more fun spec, but what i really want to know is if i was to get the f60 version and upgrade it with exoteck (if recommended) would it be as good as a pro or better or worse?

cheers mate.

On the F104 with a 21.5 motor with rubber tires (med front soft rear) and running outdoors on asphalt, what gear ratio is a good starting point? I tried 2.9 ratio and the car seemed slow. Any help would be appreciated.

The motor's going to thermal soon if you keep running it that hot. Gear it down a bit, you'll get more life out of your motor.

How hot would you run?
