What is the problem with the dif then?
Mine is buttersmooth and been for the whole season without replacing anything.
If you want to do it like a pancar you need the F103 setup for the dif.

Nothing is wrong with the diff. Its very smooth and consistent. I just wish it was easier to adjust and work with that's all.

Replace it with the F103 diff. Easy to adjust as the nut is accessible like a pan car, but if you want to change tyres you have to dismantle the diff.

It does not change width as long as I know. Rear axle width is the same both F103/F104. Is the kind of rear tyres the changing factor. F103 rear tires= 200 mm, F104 tires = 180 mm

I was thinking in changing my car to 200 mm rear with F103 tyres, but not know!!!. This FS104WW makes it pointless!!!

You'll need axle and diff side hub set.
The Ferrari F60 and the Vodafone basic 104 kits come with this type and I prefer it.

Why???
Slap a F103 front suspension arm set on it,put some F103 tires on it all around and it is almost the same as the F104WGP.
The parts that are different is the front suspension and steering blocks and the chassis plate.
Is that worth the extra money you have to pay for the new car to what you get back for your X1??
