thanks
There is no definitive answer for that. Depends on your tires, battery weight, spring selection, on and on. You just need to go by trial and error till you get the right height.

You can yes if it's for the F103. Cut and install as shown. I've found though they are a bit fragile. Seems the polycarbonate they use seems brittle...
There are 2 extra holes on the rear of the F1R pod plate. You can attach the difuser there as well if you trim them to fit- including the stock hard plastic F104 difuser.

Hello!

Looks like also;
Exotek FRONT BULKHEAD HEX SCREWS- TITANIUM
Tamiya 54154 Carbon Reinforced Uprights - Front F103 / F104
Tamiya 54249 Aluminum Turnbuckle Shaft - 3x32mm (2pcs)
Tamiya 53901 F104 TRF DAMPER
Tamiya spur gear spacer adapter
1/10 SPUR GEAR WITH 1/8TH DIFF BALLS (68T 48 PITCH KIMBROUGH IS A GOOD START)
EXOTEK F104 SERVO MOUNTS
Tamiya alloy servo saver #?

I think there are some steering ball ends needed but I'm not sure what the stock F104 has included.

I'm working on something simpler- +4mm off set molded wheels for the F104. They will be more Shimizu friendly as well.
