What's the biggest pinion you can mount and which ones make sense for rubber and foam on asphalt? I use the alloy motor mount.

pinion gearing will be dependant on what spur gear you are running and what you are gearing for how big is sthe track you are running on. to start with i was running a 25 pinion with a 93 spur but now i am running a 30 pinion with a 88 spur but our track has long straights and im mrunning a 13.5 turn

I use the 93 spur which came with the kit. What spurs do you use?

Depends on track length, motor type,diameter of the tires
I have pinions from 22 to 29.
This is a good start but what i mentioned above is very important.

Some pictures of my latest shell all up and painted.... even in my biased opinion, it looks ace. Love the metallic blue... and well, Alesi!

(For those who don't know, it's Prost GP AP04 from 2001... the winter testing king... albeit it massively underweight! )

Oh, and I got a little arty with the camera... so easy to do with these cars!

My 5000 lipo is nearly 300g.

Added 5oz to help lack of traction on 145* track temps for Tamiya/TCS Finals a couple weeks ago.
No legal min/max weight limits was imposed however.

Can usually run the F104 with lipo as is without adding weight

Thanks for the replies , I have fitted an old 5000/40c pack, weighing 290g approx.
The one I took out was only 230grams, so this on its own should help get some weight into it. I only have the std plastic pod etc, so the back is very light. My plan is to add some weight to the sides of the battery , near the rear of the lower deck.
My hope is to help get some more of the ponies to the ground, since I have plenty on tap.

When I added weight I copied Austin B. the TCS Finals winner and added the weight to the wings/trays to the electronics then mounted the elecs on top.

This was an effort to resemble the F103 cross chassis battery mounting position and we all know the F103 kicks the F104's ass.
