I also heard he was at + 6oz.
I only found room for 5oz.
Exact placement on his car I'm usure of, might have had other weight scattered around too.
The rest of his setup will have to come from him, hope to see pics and specs too.

Oh yeh, he had the "old" car.
From what it looked like, he had some really big lead bars that he used to cantilever off of the radio trays, and add even more lead. Like Cuda said, it was like 103 weight distribution. Great idea.

I was able to get 4 oz. on my car in a similar fashion, and i had to add 30 points on my dual rate to get the steering back, but it was stuck

Hey guys! Heres some setup info and pics of my 104.

Front:

10g of weight added under each arm

Rear:
tamiya 300wt shock oil w/ gold spring

There are some fantastic paint jobs and detailing in this thread.
Therefore no way I'll show you my first RC car - an F104w I built a few weeks ago. My second attempt is a little less embarrassing. Just a solid colour. I'm really enjoying the F104. Started driving this a couple of weeks ago with the stock motor and few days ago upgraded to a"mini steup" Hobbywing ESC 35A/ 13T motor.

Austin, thanks for sharing this information and well done on the TCS.

Can I ask what the overall weight of your car was.

For those that are running the 21.5/2 cell LiPo combination, what's the general ball park gearing everybody is running roll-out wise?

I think he might be looking for the damper gold spring, if so it came in the Miata Mini kit from what I understand.
Try searching that, sorry no part number.

Thanks
