Does your local club racing allow aftermarket on your F1?

If so.. Start looking in to 3Racing. Cheaper on price.. not on quality.

I run a complete 3Racing / F104pro. I've converted to 48p gearing and run a Kimbrough Spur with ACER 1/8th ceramic bearings, Associated diff grease, and stock Tamiya diff. rings. Most unbelievable smooth diff.
Not because of the brand of bearings I use, just simply the Tamiya or 3Racing simple direct-drive diff assembly is a great diff. all around. Easy to build and maintain.

BTW.. Fact: 90% of the bearings on our markets are purchased in bulk from a specific manufacturer. Then independent companies make their own labels and packages then sell them to you threw distributors. I know, my friend owns a VERY popular R/C bearing company that most all of you on here know, for 20+years. .
(annonymous) Not ACER either.

Moral of the story, is buy any good set of ceramic bearings from your local Hobby Shop or Online Dealer and your F1 will have a lot better diff. performance.
Promise.

P.S.. Don't be surprised if you see a compatible aftermarket Gear Diff. released soon for the Tamiya F1!

I have the thrust bearing, but do I need to replace my bearing with the thrust bearing?

Advantages?

btw: I am running a Kimbrough 64pitch spur with the tamiya spacer replacing the bearing.

What has been said before.
Loose the original ballbearing and replace it with a one piece trustbearing en then the springwashers like this )( then the alloy ring, after that the nut.
This is also when you use other spur gears.
Almost no rebuilds needed when running on clean tracks and smooth as a baby bottum

They are not the same, F104 rear tires are a little wider than fronts tyres.

Front rims 30 mm
Rear rims 35 mm

Think he meant that the wheels/tyres are the same on a F104 V2. compared to a normal f104. Not the same front vs rear.

My carbon shaft has bearings that are hard to remove. With the steel shaft bearings slip out so easily. Does that happen to anyone? Or was my carbon shaft warped?

The set screw securing the left hub will warp the end on the carbon shaft
This can be sanded to fix the issue

Not an issue with a steel axle
