The first bearing put on the axle fits inside the kit spur gear, Tamiyas metric spurs have much larger hole in them for this bearing, using standard 48 and 64dp spurs you use the thin POM plastic gear adapter instead.

Another question on the F104 pro diff...did anybody else have issues with the end cap with the axle with the wheel bolts on fitting into the actual diff assemble due to the locking nut that tightens the diff does not tighten enough. In other words having the diff at the proper tightness then the diff locking nut is sticking out to far for the end cap with the axle to fit properly. I hope this all makes sense.

Maybe I am just used to the fit and finish of my Xray diffs.

Thanks, Mike

I don't believe so. I do have the F104 one though. Now that I think about it I did order a bunch of F103 parts years ago that never got put up for sale...let me dig through that box and see if I have one in there.

Here is my latest mod, GT wheels. Reason why, is better availability. Our rules say max width 205mm, so I had to cut inner 2,5mm out of each rear tire.

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

I made rear adapters, mount them. Cut inner 2,5mm of rear tires on lathe, mount them. Made new longer king pins with self-locking nuts instead of E-clips, replaced front knuckle arms and wheel axles by Associated pan car ones and mount them. Thats it.
