If you want a wide F1 it's the way to go

Different size of wheels plus 2cm of width should be good for cornering or stability on straights...

Front end should be ok.
Rears are different offset so you'd need F103 sized rears

You have to make front end and rear end the same by using F103 frond end and F103 wheels (the easiest way)... F104 wheels do have bigger diameter so it is better to use all 4 wheels with F103 size. Please correct me if I'm wrong...

I got a f103 front end if you want, only have foam tyres though, no rubber tyres.

If you're running the states at PRECC, slap the 103 front end on, get some f103 soft xceed rear foams and f103 medium xceed fronts and you will kick ass.

You can use the 104 servo mounts with the 103 front end no problem, you cannot use the 103 servo mounts with the 104 front end since the 104 front end needs the extra support for the rear of that assembly.

So as mentioned above you only need the 103 front end, longer tie rods, and your choice of 103 wheels and tires.
I'm curious as to why you want to change to the wider car when the narrow car has proven to be very, very competitive when it comes to racing on rubber tires since the Pit Shimizu combo is kicking serious ass now.

If you are however racing on foams I understand completely since the premount 103 tires and other similar combos will most likely destroy the combos available for the 104 sized tires and rims.

Default WTB F104

Sorry to post here but I got a tip from a reliable source that I might find what I'm looking for here. I'm looking for a F104 roller to build into a F1R for the upcoming Carpet Nats. Thanks! *fingers crossed*
