I have had success also using the shorty packs ( I use the promatch). It is a snug fit left/right and you won't be able to use the electronics trays (NBD) I just removed the top deck, drop the pack in, reinstalled the top deck and added a small blob of shoe goo in front of the pack. it's not going anywhere.

I just double side taped my receiver and speedo to the battery in their original locations.

I was able to keep the wings/trays on, just trimmed the loops for the posts to an almost closed "C" shape.

Ive tried a few things, ball diff greese, 2000wt diff oil, all the tamiya damper greeses, aw geese, and corally blue tube lube. Best I've settled on so far is the soft tamiya damper greese (the green one). Seems to give good steering, whilst also a stable rear end.
Having said that, I see David Jun suggests using 10K diff oil, worth giving it a try for sure. Its on my list to do...

Cuda, do you still mount the trays with the o-ring on top?
If you take the o-ring out, and shave down the upper loop, and cut the lower one, you can fit the trays on the posts with a full loop. Is a bit pack height dependent obviously, but is also a bit more secure as well... I have had the trays pop off when I did it your way before.
Raising the tray also gives a bit more room underneath for more lead if your so inclined

I tried Castrol auto grease, didnt quite like it, tried tamiya diff grease still wasnt quite as nimble as i like my car... currently i use 5000wt associated diff oil and i think it's best so far for bayswater... Might try 3000wt diff oil next.

You racing sunday? I got my FGX to try out, but i'll be racing the f104 well.

As far as damper grease/oil goes, I've run from 5000 diff oil to completely dry.

What I progressed to for my win at Tamiya last weekend (blowing his own horn)was a drop of 2000 on the opening of the tube, worked it a few times then wiped off the damper post leaving oil only in the grooves.
This resulted in max rear traction for our conditions, sprayed asphalt and warm comfy weather.

Thicker = looser

Thinner = grippier

Dry = just a bit too floppy side to side but could be the ticket in terrible conditions, no grip surfaces.

Electronics trays, I've only modified the original set which I actually broke the loops that I cut to the C shape so I shoe goo'd them closed again around the post which tightened up the fit and keeps them on. I run no O rings on top now.

That is a nice setup, especially if you have your battery in and out often.

Hi just sharing. F104s with Tamiya 14T sensorless motor and LiFe pack. Track was bumpy, jumping 4 wheels off the surface. Several broken steel rear axles.

+ YouTube Video
