The Red Devil 104X1 is done and available for sale. The price for the rolling chassis is $575, and includes the buyers choice of wheels and tires.
After the studio shots are done I will have it listed on the store at
f1paintlab.mybigcommerce.com

Need some advice.
I'm wanting to convert my F104pro chassis so I can run shorty LiPos. I don't want to buy an Exotek chassis conversion btw..
I still run the original stock 2 piece graphite chassis. What I'm trying to do is eliminate the plastic side swivel mounts and center my electronics with a shorty on the chassis.

Is this what I need?

Anything else I need than just this?
Is there anything else for consideration?
Thoughts?

Thanks.

hey

I have a F104pro and used the X1 conversion kit , this will eliminate the use of the friction plate and then you get the side damper

I use my F104at ETS and we have to use the shorty lipo and a 21.5 brushless set , works brilliantly and i can drive for 20 mins between charging

That option will work but you can spend a little more and buy the P/N# Tamiya 54331 which is the X1 conversion as mentioned in previous post. I have the F104X1 and a shorty pack installed. It works great.

Default New tires?

Someone from Tamiya posted there was going to be a new tire available for the F1. Are they out yet?

They're out already. SpeedtechRC and TQRC have them. They also arrived at my LHS last week.

Is the side damper on the V2 the same pass through design as on the F1R? I dont like the one on the F1R so I'm looking to replace it with something different. If not the V2 damper, anyone suggest something else?
