It took the fight to the F103s today. And almost pulled it off.

After running ride soft front and ride supersoft rear on the weekend i found it had a huge push on asphalt . The front rides are very stiff tyres so we cut them open and removed the inserts . This was much better but the big difference that made it nice to drive was front toe out.

How close to the f103 can this car come?

I'm having a hard time wanting to get the f104 since from what i understand it's off the 103 pace by a sizable gap.

Since there are no width rules where I'm racing.

It would be nice to have a modern looking car that can hang with my exo104 w/103 parts or my 103rm

fast laps were within .1 second. In the 96laps of the 3 A mains today the f103 had the edge by 2 total laps. So today, at this track, pretty close.

Kit is not change FGX rear design.

I will post my complete car photo later
I like the idea of running the cyclone 12x shocks, but did you just use the kit shock shaft with no issues? The kit shocks are a bit bland so this could be a good option.

for those running a 17.5 non boosted, what fdr are you running at. I plan on running a Tekin 17.5 no boost to start as see where it takes me.

any thoughts would be appreciated

Here at work and been trying to find an answer to my question, but too many postings to go through at work. In the manual it says the gear ratio is 2.71. But is that the fdr with a 18t pinion lilke the manual suggests or is that the internal ratio? Also, how many teeth is the stock spur?

The foam rims haven't been released yet, but will fit F104 size donuts. They are 12mm hex rims all the way around. The front axle rotates in the bearings with the wheel. You could put TC wheels on this thing!

2.71 is without the spur and pinion. Final FDR will require the pinion and spur. The stock pinion is a 41. The FDR with the 41/18 would be around 6.17.

Thanks so much. But wow 6.17 is what I have my drift car close to. That's pretty slow out the box. What is a good FDR? In the low 4's or faster being that it's a stock set up. Anyone know of set up sheets posted up?

The ThunderPower 21.5 (*motor*) is a perfect fit with a full range of motion. The battery will need to have foam on the upper deck to keep it snug. I thought the shorty battery would be a good idea, now I'm not so sure. I'll have to play around with it.

21.5s like the 2.40 to 2.70 range. I just put my motor in and am going with a 35 spur/34 pinion for openers: 2.53 FDR.
