This is the pack: http://www.venom-group.com/Store/LiP...rdcse-ROAR-UNI
It will not drop right in, but you can make it fit. You dont need to buy any other chassis to do it either.

Go read this and you will see how to do it.

So today I decided to proceed and buy the motor + esc for the f104x1 I will be building soon, the rules at the track is 13T brushless, doesnt matter what esc or motor, the guys at the track all have the Hobbywing 13 brushless esc + motor but I was thinking that there should be another solution out there.

I noticed that the motor (hobbywing 13T) has very big cooling fins and the actual size of the can is not as big as a standard sized motor which concerns me about the performance, any other options out there for around $100 ?

Maybe a 13.5T with higher kv rating from hobbywing as well?

Here is the one they are using:
http://www.hobbypartz.com/ezrun-35a-...tem-combo.html

I was thinking maybe buying the hobbwing 60A ESC: http://www.hobbypartz.com/ezrun-60a-...-1-10-car.html
And this Hobbywing full size 540 13.3T 3300kv motor: http://www.hobbypartz.com/ezrun135t.html

Is the 60A ESC worth it for the extra performance? or is the power draw to much? My friend has the 35A ESC and a 5000mah lipo which gives him 40min of runtime.

Can anyone confirm the part number for the roll damper piston itself? Turns out when you break T bar the roll damper piston is susceptible to breaking as well. Thanks in advance

Available someday soon I suppose:

Oil damper could be a nice upgrade I think. My roll damper piston is also getting loose from a set srcew (looks not broken).

Hi Guys,

Just got myself a F104x1 and ready into F1.

However, I have purchased Tamiya rubber tires and tamiya foam rims..

I searched around and know that Pitz tires can be glue on foam rims, but wondering are those tamiya rubber tires also able to glue on foam rims? Or do I have to purchase those tamiya mesh rims.

Many Thanks

Zenkins

If you bought the Tamiya rubber for the F104 (part numbers 54199, 54198, 51400, 51399), you'll need the mesh rims (51398 or 54201 for the bling shiny ones).

How do you guys like your F104 to handle?
Understeering and predictable or Oversteering and a bit of a handfull

How do you attack corners? do you take the "perfect line" and keep it all in control? or do you like the rear to steer the car a touch?

I actually change my driving style for foams vs rubber which I think is probably a bit odd, but I like understeer with rubber and to get it to really take smooth lines and the ideal line. Where as with foams I like the back end to be a bit looser and to be able to get the car to rotate in the rear and slide a touch.

hey guys, I just put on the aluminum diff housing on my F104w, but now the axle is too short to mount the tire.

Is there another part I need to make this work?

TIA,
Ron
