Understood
I think I will try the button head and if it rubs etc , on my 'non shelf queen' , during racing I will stick with that

Really like all your pics and input, thanks!

Hello, just ordered mine but forgot to order aluminium motor holder...
I've ordered only Ver2 itself, without any hop-up parts as a replacement for my old f104 pro...

question is, which hop-up parts do you suggests? :-)
(rcmart.com doesn't even have the aluminium motor holder... I think that I need to find another seller...)

P.S: do you have any advice for a seller of hop-up parts for ver2? (near central Europe)

If you guys are not in a hurry, you can consider this

Heres our prototype of the RRS for F104V2/RM-01, it figures an extended motor mount which makes the shock tower shorter therefore a stiffer structure over all for the shock to work more efficiently. Two wing mounting positions for more downforce when needed.

Hi Guys..

Just try my f104 v2 yesterday...

I wan using all soft spring and tamiya rubber tire on carpet...put tire traction both front and rear...

I was having a lot of fun...

but having a bit problem with diff....its seem a little bit to tight but when i loss it, it to loose...

so you guys recommend on using 1 trust bearing from f103...and 1 question regarding counter weight on x1..will it be possible to use on v2? because i see its different type of axle..

Hope you guys understand..

Thanks

I have no experience with V2 diff yet but one piece trust bearing works well with older Pro diff (for me)...
If You want to use counter weight You will need short wheel stopper, not the Clamp Type Wheel Stopper from the V2 kit. Here's a picture of the counter weight with R-sector wide track kit but it'll be the same with Tamiya wheel stopper.

Default Set up sheet for M&M Houston Initial run V2

Just wanted to share my initial set up sheet for the V2. For the first run 2 qualifiers, the car was dialed! I am going out again to play with the damper oil and the ride height, Most are running 4mm in the front and 4.5-5 in the rear.. Good times!

We have to use rubber here in Australia, these are the combo's I've come across that should work for the F104 v2;

ALL Shimizu Racing tires for F104, but either Tamiya RIMS or TRG Rims.
The TRG rims are for foam, so you have to drill a hole and then glue them on.
You have to remove some ribbing from Tamiya RIMS to get these tires to fit as well.

Check out the F104 Pro thread on method for this mod to Tamiya RIMS (it's the first post):
RIDE & SHIMIZU F1 RUBBER TIRES

FRONT
PS-0571
F104 racing slick tire front (soft)

PS-0573
F104 racing slick tire front (medium)

Just purchased mine from RCMart. Everywhere else told me the car is out of stock before i checked out, but i think RCMart will take my money and then tell me "oh sorry, that item you just paid money for is out of stock... but here's store credit"... in any case ordered the car with the metal uprights, titanium screw kit, alloy motor mount and carbon wing mount, carbon damper mount plate, and pitch and roll spring sets.

Looking forward to running it over the next few months !!!

Rubber and foam is allowed in Victoria.

I only use ps-0571 front and ps-0575 rear if track temp is below 23-24 degrees. ps-0572 if above.

If track temperature is above 30 I switch to foams as I haven't found anything to work. Maybe rides will or tamiya rubber but haven't tried them since foams did the trick.

If RCMart says they have stock then they have stock. Probably one of the only shops that actually have accurate stock counts online.

Ive had it previosuly where RCMart has told me something is in stock and it wasn't. I even bought something from their ebay store (a normal item... not something that was super and rare and jsut released) and was then told it's out of stock (which im pretty sure is illegal in ebay world).

In any case, i made a mistake this time. I forgot to change the standard delivery address on my rcmart account and my car will now be sent to my old workplace. Hopefully the emails i sent RCmart get to them and they can change the delivery address before it gets sent.
