I was going to change the front end to the wide arms as well if I have to as well to keep the scale look.
The F104W cars are "old school" so I'd check out bodies from those.

It can be done however the F103 bodies are shorter than the F104 so it looks a bit strange. If you want the old school look you are probably better off with a F104W body and going with the F103 front suspension and tires from the f104W.

Contact BP Shadow as he has the oldskool Mclaren en Ferrarri bodies for the F104.
The you don't need to alter the bodyposts and the body is a bit longer so it will fit the F104 perectly

Yo Dude, hot ticket is the shorty pack moved forward with esc and receiver behind battery with no wings/trays for electrics.
That's for the carpet were munchin right now at TQ, ran the battery in the back at Tamiya's asphalt for more rear grip but didn't even need to try it forward. Had to move it forward on the carpet cuz the front wheels kept comin up and it was flippin, remember?
Trying to upload pic but I think you get it.

Can you post up the setup your using for rubber tire on carpet. I'm really struggling to find something that works.

Thanks, Andy

How is your ESC temp, compare to being in the original side location, if you have checked? I don't know if it really matters, but I'm just curious.

I didn't check but I do run max advance and max gearing on my 21.5 and the motor temps around 130s, esc never got hot enough to worry me. I'll have to take a look next time out.
