1 question, does the kit not come with an aluminum motor mount?
The kit comes with a carbon reinforced plastic parts tree for the motor pod pieces. It's light and the material is top notch. Unfortunately, the aluminum side plates are not included in the kit.

what about that aluminum motor spacer, why didn't you use it?

With the spacer in place along with a silver can motor...I cannot get the pinion gear to line up with the spur gear. The motor shaft is too short.

Would it make any difference if the carbon/plastic motor mount was used?
Is it narrower too allow the motor to move closer?

I hope this build has been informative and I thank you for taking the time to view it. If you have any questions or comments, please let me know.
If the average guy can't build a proper F104 after these posts, I'm not sure what could help. Excellent work!!!

I had the same issue with mine. The TB03D spacer takes up to much space. The pinion is off from being flush to the spur by 2-3mm. If you try to force it and line them both up the pinion wobbles. That falls under the F category.

Why not do it properly, all the correct parts are available. Get the Speedway Pal Brawn bodyshell and 3racing wings, add the correct wheel covers to complete the look. Just don't know why they have never made the wings in white.

did you make sure the diff gear is in the right side? its asymetrical so if you put it on backwards it sticks out more.

The 540 shaft is just way too short, no matter what.

Does this mean a return of Vyger to the track destroying everything in it's path? Some say that the movie was a documentary, and that Star Wars was challenging to shoot because of less gravity.
