From my personal experiences the TRF101 runs smoother and less nervous.
From my first race i looked at my lap times and they were equal to a V2 but in a 8 minute final run and laptimes of 9.5seconds i only had 3 or 4 laps with laptimes that were more then 10 seconds.
All the other laps i was within 0.2 seconds of my fastest lap time.
So i don't think the car is faster but it is smoother and it will give more constant laptimes.

i'm curently testing the f104v2 for rcf1.fr , and i'm confronted with issues considering the stability on the track (i've just tested indoor on high grip carpet so far) .
- difficulty to keep the car straight line on high speed braking (goes right or left)
- very touchy on power with bumpy condition.

i've tried a lot of settings but with some very small improvement. the car is realy fast on one lap, at 0.1s of my best lap time on my track but is no constant over a long run. i make a lot of fault on the track

do you guys have met the same problem ? do you have found something to fix that ? some way to improve the overall stability.
so far i've tested.
more contraint en side springs
stiffer side springs
steel metal rear axle
offset on the front upright
more caster in the front (with exotek front arms)
changing the piston side damper , with a grease damper (10000 to 30000)
of course the car is not tweaked, i've checked but remains very touchy

Hey Ph3nyx,

This is a setup from the UF1 site used by some of their competitors for carpet. From my understanding it's a really good base line. The set up sheet is at the bottom of the page. Sorry I can't post pdf files.

Default Tamiya Aluminum Pitch Damper Set RM-01 for TRF101

Does anyone have a spare Tamiya Aluminum Pitch Damper Set RM-01, Tamiya part # 54341, they would be willing to sell?


I have the TRF damper on my TRF101, but wanted to try out the smaller damper as well. I had good luck with that part on the F104v2 and it helps reduce CG over the TRF style damper. I know a few people swapped over to the TRF shock as it is easier to set up, so I figure they may be a few laying around.

PM or email with any details.

Erik

I have a few questions for you Tamiya F104v2 owners I hope you can help me with:

1. What is the wheelbase of the F104v2 and v1 for that matter? I was assuming in was 270mm.

2. I am also assuming that with F104 wheels mounted the track is 190mm?

3. What if you mount F103 wheels? Will you then get a 200mm track width?

4. If you want to go 200mm do you need to use the older F103 front end?

Thanks, Ed D.

2. I am also assuming that with F104 wheels mounted the track is 190mm?

3. What if you mount F103 wheels? Will you then get a 200mm track width? You can change the rear Axel/Diff and the front arms + F103 wheels and you get = 200mm

4. If you want to go 200mm do you need to use the older F103 front end? Yes

Thanks, Ed D.
Cheers!

Yes, the wheelbase of the v2 is 270mm measured from the centre of the front axle to the centre of the rear axle.

182mm measured from the outside of the front tyres with zero toe.

This is correct. You can also use the R Sector widening kit and then you can stick with F104 wheels. It has options for front and rear track width widening.

Cheers

When using the F103 front suspension and foam tires, try the F104 foam tires/wheels.
That way you can use the foam tires untill there is almost no foam on the wheels left and the car becomes insanely fast.
I've been doing this for over a year now and they last longer then F103 front tires/wheels and you are able to use the larger bearings.
Cause the small 850 bearings that are needed for the F103 wheels are to fragile.
