If you don't have clean bearings, good transmission and a perfect car, trust me when I say this...someone else does.

Not sure that will work so well. The F104 rears are narrower than F103/F109 rears, so the fronts have a different offset to compensate. So you might find F104 rims front and rear will make the front end of the F109 wider than the rear.

They do "fit" but you'll have different width front and rear.

Hello, everyone.
I find that it's difficult for replacing battery. Do you have some good idea?

Like I said all Tamiya F1 wheels do physically "fit" on a F109.

F103 wheels will give you same track width front and rear so no problems there. Pretty sure the F104 wheels won't.

i feel the wider front track may help a little. i run the car for the first time last weekend, and it has a ton of steering. a wider front track will help dial some of that out.

Default Just got the F1-09

I just finished putting the car together last night and I have a couple of questions. Will the mesh wheels for Rubber (F104) fit in the F1-09 without any mods? Also, it seems that no one has spur gears in stock. What else can be used? just looking to have spares.

thanks again
