Nice work on angling back the servo. I decided to use the shorter kit servo saver and angling the servo a little. Zero bump steer!
Do u have any pictures.? It would be great

Good to see some goodies on the way. Can't wait to do some testing. Got mine almost completed. Just waiting for the darn Mclaren decal set to come back in stock. Going to try these new Lipo Rocket packs out from Orion. Seems like they should fit without any issues with the wire config. Comes in 4000mah as well. On the other hand, Does the blue anodized damnper post just float over the long center screw like that? It seemed odd when I assembled it.

Why are people selling their F104?
I had so much fun with my F104 today.
May be the other F104s will be on their way...

I bought mine to have as a shelf queen, but I'd rather sell it and keep my F103R 15th on the shelf.

Default F104 handling problems

Hi
just wondering what guys have done to get the car to handle abit better than standard kit setup??

My car tends to oversteer quite badly !! I know a F1 car will oversteer what ever you do but my F104 is really bad ?

Cheers Mike

Turn down the EPA will help for the oversteer.
My F104 is stock except the Al center pivot and motor mount.
I used the front spring is black.
Shock oil is 45
The car is pushed without any tire sauce.
I just sauced 3/4 of the front tires and the is dialed.
I will test with the B-type tires and see how the handling better or ....

i just dont feel like spending a few hundred dollars on some smaller batteries that will fit in the car...parts are hard to find so far...and those few parts u can find are in Japan. those are my main reasons.
