Hi Vyger,

I bought this item, but could not see any gold spring, just silvers and black. Is the gold spring medium (in between soft silver and hard black?)

Thanks.

Thanks.
The gold looks very very similar to the silver in terms of colour... I know this as I almost put one silver and one gold on the front of my 104 this weekend... had to do a double take on the colours!

96x29 would work on a larger track... 76x29 - nope, not for very long.

I ended up running 93 x 30 for the mains at Tamiya. Ran super hot but no fade.

TryHard, thanks, I'll take a closer look. I used to have gold springs from old f103 kits, and they were easily gold.

Rob, congrats on your podium finish! Just wondering, is the carbon shaft really faster than steel for the nats?

wow, I ran 93/26 then 27 then 28 and they were all slow but the 28 felt as if it was too hi, too hot and slowest of all.
I was also at the mercy of the borrowed pack that may have seen better days. Was kinda feelin like it wouldn't matter much against the stiff competition until I found myself actually running a car that was close to the podium again.
If I had it to do over again I'd have kicked for a fresh pack.

Dear fellow F104 drivers,

Please help fill me in the knowledge of having softer T bar, what affect does it has when the car start rolling.

Dose it act like an anti roll bar?

Many many thanks

Softer T-bat generates more rear grip and bit less steering.
By rolling you mean the rear want's to pass the front?
If so see above.
With the F104 it acts a bit like a roll bar.
