Will still need to get 30-35T pinions, but I think I have everything covered? This will be my first time with on road, so just want to make sure I get all my ducks in a row.

Also got the parts below.

F104 F Parts - Suspension Arm/Front
F104 J PARTS (Front Wing
F104 Mesh Wheels - For Rubber Tires (F/R)
F104 Rubber Tires Front
F104 Rubber Tires Rear
F103 / F104 1 Piece Ball Thrust Bearing
5mm Alum Ball Nut - Fluorine Coated 10pcs
F104 Titanium Coated King Pin - 2pcs
F104 Rubber Tires - Rear/Soft
Tamiya Rear Steel Shaft 6x110mm F104
F104 Font F3-Soft (1 pair)
If you are running the old F104 you will probably want a softer rear t-plate. If you are running the V2 you won't need it.

Yep, I'm running the older F104 Pro. Was thinking of the V2 but figured I would start off with this before getting a better model.

Link to the t-plate? Where do you guys usually get your parts? Amain doesn't sell Tamiya parts

I know at least 1-2 guys who have used 64p with a tamiya spur without a problem. Why not just spend a few dollars and get a spur gear spacer and a 64p spur and you will be 100% safe.

Do we have to turn down throttle expo for f1s? When I gun it on a straight it either goes left or right. My trim looks fine when it is slow. Diff is nice and smooth. Ceramic bearings and ae black grease. Do I need to change my thrust bearing assembly?

Xenon spur gears are awesome if you can find them. Lots of holes for diff balls makes for a smoother diff.

If your diff is locked (and it should be) it will go straight on power, unless there is something off in the front end
Try using proper silicon diff grease

When running the 64 pitch spurs, do I need to use different diff balls? In the manual the Tamiya spur only uses 6 diff balls but i noticed with the 3Racing Spur it was 8 holes plus additional holes on the outside.

How many balls do I need to run in the 3racing spur gear and do I need new diff rings?

If possible can someone provide me with links to what I will need? Appreciate all the help! It's a lot different from off road.

yes you will need to use 8 balls for the holes that line up with the rings...
the standard diff rings are fine.....you might need to get a spur gear adapter though
and 1/8 balls

above is a link to the 3racing f109 manual and below is a link to the adapter needed

tamiya 54125 is the spur gear spacer you need.

Using kawada spurs with 3mm diff balls and no issues. i prefer using the tamiya ceramic diff balls.

No need to replace your diff plate just sanding them with 600 grit sand paper soaked in water.

kawada spur uses 8 balls.
