i'll need to put some more caster into it, but just need to figure out the best method. I'm running the F104 Pro.

I'm assuming you're using the RSector kit? Did you drill out the knuckles to run the bigger ballstuds? If so what size bit and tap did you use?

Tamiya has normal sized ballstuds with that smaller thread

Raise the rear ball stud (on the servo mount)- this will cause more "dynamic" caster. You may also want to get the front ballstud lower to induce more camber gain as well.

Was planning on racing this weekend so kinda need a quicker fix.

I was thinking of using the kit knuckles and just pull the axles out, enlarge the whole for the RSector axles, and drill out the ballstud hole.

Also, on the 190mm kit for the rear, I have a lot of side to side play in the axle. About 2mm of movement. Do I need to just shim it or is something not assembled right?

Thanks for reply. An additional question, can I use rubber tires directly on kit wheels?

I'm thinking on MP24 body and not sure if wings are included.

On the kit rims you can use these rubber tires:

Tamiya F1 Tire Front Soft (#1031) or Pit Shimizu Racing #PS-0571
Tamiya F1 Tire Rear Hard (#1032) or Pit Shimizu Racing #PS-0572

Or any Pit Shimizu Racing tires for the F104:
