Check out our tyre guide.

I'd recommend Pit Shimizu 575 Soft Rear and then 573 fronts for a little understeer that can be dialed out with setup or 571 fronts for aggressive turn in.

Hi, I just want to purchase the F104 v2 pro. A few questions.
- Can I use original wheels with Shimizu Racing PS-0575?
- I already have, 21.5 motor, esc, low profile servo, shorty pack. Something else that I need to complete the kit?
- I like RIDE 25004 wheels, can I use Shimizu tires on it?

Thanks for your help. I appreciate any other tips about this kit.

- original wheels are for foam = yes
- receiver, body and wings
- no

I must admit, this conversion set is so cool!

But i actually had a question, in the page, it has "Includes Associated side pod springs. These are used to tune for steering response and pod level (tweak)."

Have i been using these springs all wrong??? i knew about the pod tweak, but I still have the issue of the rear inner wheel lifting in tight turns after the apex, i thought putting stiff springs here would help, but it made no change, so these affect the FRONT??

that exotek conversion is great looking. It's all the little touches like the adjustable shock end, the twin dampers along with the 'lipo' post to make wiring easier. If I didn't have the TRF I would have this in a heartbeat.

Great work

Any difference between

I can't see front uprigth, aluminium or plastic?
Any other difference?

Thanks

The Dark Titanium comes with the allow motor mount, a body, and the rear carbon mount for the rear wing. The 'base' kit doesn't have those pieces.

The difference between those 2 kits:
The dark titanium version has a Alu motor mount and a carbon rear plate (to mount the rear spoiler) and a F104 body/spoiler set included.
The rest of the kit is exactly the same as a F104V.2 Pro kit (with the exception of the other color on the alu parts)

@ MiTaller-RC, you may also want to get a TRF damper, and the aluminum damper tube (the kit will include a plastic version on a tree). Some people prefer these over what's included in the kit.

Looking for ballpark on gearing or rollout for a F104v2 with Pit tires on a medium size carpet track using a 21.5. Thanks in advance.

Start with 2.8 final drive ratio. 93 spur would need 33t pinion.

Hey guys, just got myself a pro v2 dark titanium.
What would be a good servo and esc for the car?
I'm pretty much new to onroad and I have mainly used Speed Passion Reventon esc in my offroad vehicles but the F104 chassis is a little smaller than my SC or b4.
It will only be a club racer so I'm not looking to the best gear or most expensive.
Thanks in advance.

That ESC will be fine, though you really should invest in a shorty battery and mount the ESC on the centreline of the chassis, the speed passion ESC is too big to mount safely on the side of the chassis in my opinion

Yeah, that was sort of what I was wondering. The Reventon isn't a small esc and I have seen mostly side mounted layouts. Is the centreline layout a better option? Balance with these cars, I would assume, is pretty important, so is centreline the way to go? Any special tricks/requirements to go this route?
Shorties preferable to the stick packs or are shorties the only way to go?
Cheers
