I believe the 104 kingpins are 2mm longer. May not fit inside wheel of 103.

greetings to fellow rcf1'ers. i am experience a problem with the steering in my 104. the servo has begin to move off center. i have to adjust the trim constantly left then right to make it straight. so i put a different servo in with a new servo saver and the centering of the servo still moves just like the original one.hmmmmmmmm,its got me a bit stump. i rebuild the kingpin,spacers and they all are free.
any thoughts for me guys?

thanks

Have you tried a different servo horn? The horn could be stripped out.

If you are using the standard Tamiya ball cups, not the hard grey ones, they are soft and skip threads easily if you get on the boards. The optional ball cups are way better in that respect.

If you are not hitting anything, then ignore this message.

With the guys running the 104's in w / wgp configuration what rubber tires are you finding work best on the cars?? The 103 tires or 104?? I have seen a couple of people getting good results with the 104 tires but was not sure how they compare to the 103 tires as there seems to be allot more choice of rubbers with the 104 tires..

i have a a set of fgx wheels with hpi tires, and a set of ride wheels for fgx with hpi tires, will these fit on the 104 or should i sell them with the fgx roller.

i also was couious if the savox 1251 servo would fit in the 104.

It has nothing to do with tire selection, 104 and 103 rear wheels have very different offsets that dictate the width of the car. You must use tires meant to go with the car width you have setup - 180 or 200mm
