Thanks, but I should have specified US TCS. But hey, next time I'm racing in Asia that'll come in handy!

I was trying to figure out what you were talking about, then I went back and looked at my PayPal records. Actually that is not your car, it is my other 201, and a different body as well, this was the 10th anniversary tribute that I did with all the past F1 champions names on the sidepods. Glad to hear that you still have the 201 though, they werent great cars but still very cool

Does anyone know if the SMC 5200 40C or similar SMC pack will fit. How about the Epic 5000 40C pack? I do not want to get the car for this weekend and not have a pack that will fit it.

BP, I don't know my friends 201 @ (our long track) , was hittin 00:12:7's firm! I don't think he was gunnin that hard in this particular vid, but we were timing laps. Now if you were to calculate/ estimate our track distance & difficulty, I'd have to say "that's SCREAMIN" !!!

I have the SMC5200 40C, along with Core 5000 and GP4300 none will fit without modifing the car.

I ended up buying cheap stick pack LIPOs at $16US each and they work fine.

Enjoy your F104 I know I do.

Oh with the motor and battery combo, they were fast. But they were/are very fragile, and until you get the hang of it, difficult to work on. They were also tricky to set up and keep set up. I still like d them though

The F201 had a pretty interesting design. Mine takes centre stage on the shelf.

These are some modifications of my F104.
Top plate been cut for more flex (change the chassis flex by the top screws)
5000 Thunder power battery.
Front and Rear width is 181mm.
The car is handling so much better.
