the reason i really want to go to tamiya is that i used to run them years ago....so you could say im used to them....

back to my issue.....would the pro be just as good as say the x1 and black special...apart from all the bling bits and other mods???....thanks in advance
the only difference between the varus f104 kits is the tuning parts included. For rubber tires the x1kit would be the best choice

I thought rollout was considered if you are running foams, gear ratio if rubber ( as tire diameter doesn't change like it does with foam). Running rubber.

Re: F109- Tires tires tires and details details details. Just switching the chassis out will not solve the donuts problem.

Does anyone know where I can find the Black or Blue aluminum motor mounts? I have looked at several places and everyone is on order. I have been trying to find these parts for months.

If you can't find them at any of the hobby shops (support them first), try ebay.

MuchHobby in Canada has some motor mounts in blue.

It might be cheaper to hit up Fleabay though.

Thanks, but after seeing what shipping would be and the time for shipping, I went to Fleabay. I was able to find the limited edition black motor mounts NIP. Should be here by the weekend.

Correct me if I'm wrong guys, but I think 60wt in the center shock is way too heavy. That may be a big part of your problem. Try 30 with the softest spring that you can put in.

Thanks for the part numbers! As for TCS, I just wanted to get a clean run in the 3rd qualifier to get to 24 laps to at least be on pace and had no idea I was on a TQ run. In the main, I wasn't the fastest, but was able to get another pretty clean run to take the win.
