the kimorough spurs work a treat and you can put 12 diff balls in them and the diff works very well heaps better. im using a 2.5 fdr 88 spur 35 pinion with a 17.5 motor can drive around for 30 minuts and the motor is warm.

Rounded lipo fits better but both can be made to fit.

Yes it is but I think we are all using the tamiya gears so far.

Hello

i've got interesting problems, my suspension (two "classic" dampers, with no friction damper) works very well with my Tamya F104GT.... but i've got problems with steering.

I have on my controller EPA for steering: L: 30% R: 75%. And still everytime i turned left on the track it was too much, but on the right it was good..... i think this is not normal, do you have any suggestions? :-( P.S: i have 103GT front axle

hey guys, i have an f104x1, love car but am having a problem. when i try to get on throttle coming out of a turn, the car diffs out..... i've tried tightening the diff to various different degrees, including all the way locked down, where the car just loops out on throttle. the car seems to be staying flat in the corners, and does not lift the tire. but it seems that just the slightest bit of traction loss to one side causes the diff to spin.

any thoughts or ideas?
