They will be an option. They machined parts are quite pricey to have made unfortunately.

F104 and SpedPassion owners rejoice! Simple IFS adapters.
Thanks to mtveten for reminding me of the easy droop fix, I had a chance to mock it up for the F104 type chassis
Very simple- Just thread lock an M3 nut on each set screw end;




Still must drill 2 center holes if you wish to use the F1R2 servo mounts. The IFS instruction sheet has a template to show you where the holes should be made
INSTRUCTIONS- SEE STEP 11.

haha not necessarily true... everyone has their bad days! Although I spent a lot of time basically trying everything there is to try on my F1 car and documenting what it all did

but I am intrigued by the street jam design and wonder how it would handle with the new IFS

Once the Reedy Race is over next week I can get back to on-road. I have a huge list of things to try and test

Looking for some setup help....... installed ifs on f1r2. My problem is when I go around corners the car seems to jack up and diff out. I can not get on the power without it spooling up until the car is straight..... First tried heavier springs on the side, then went thick fluid in the side dampers, still no change. Increased front shock spring and thicker fluid still same effect. Running on med bite carpet, shim tires.

I'm thinking I need to go softer on the side dampers and springs? Car was working well before the front suspension change, just can't seem to get my head around this one

Thanks in advance

your setup should not change much in the rear of the car with the IFS installation. Initially it sounds like you have a lot of front droop in the car. but could you tell me what setup youre running on the IFS? things like: camber, castor, droop, damper oil, shock location, etc would be most helpful

Thanks Aaron

Front of car = 4mm ride height, 8 deg castor, 1.5 camber, 1 deg toe out, stiff front springs ( kit) .5mm of droop as per instructions

Short wheel base, center shock will be 30wt I believe, 1mm pod droop, side springs associated white, thick crc lube in damper tubes, center shock location towards the rear of the chassis ( back hole )

Sorry I just saw your reply!! I really need to get my setup all written down for everyone to compare...

Most everything seems ok but I would definitely run 5 degrees of castor. 8 degrees is wayy too much for the ifs and will make the car drive with too much steering/make the back loose. Also may want to try running the longer wheelbase to make it more stable at higher speeds.

Anyone know the standard caster angle of the 104?

Just got the adj upper arms and they don't seem to be able to adjust much more than the kit standard setting?
