im going to have to buy one as well, also want to pick up an FGX, the new CRC? F1, and Serpent F1. My wife is going to be pissed...hahaha. I always tell her though, buying these cars would be equivalent to 1 night of drinking with the boys.....after that position she always seems to agree

What kit do you mean, the regular Ver.II of the Ver.II titanium?
Incase of the first one you need the (54356) alu motor mount, (54375) rear carbon motor mount plate set, (54351) carbon damper plate and i also prefer the (54413) high efficiency roll damper and offcourse a body set and tires.
Incase of the new to be released ver.II Titanium you will only need tires, carbon damper plate and as i said before i prefer the high efficiency roll damper (but that's a personal preference.

What you actually need to upgrade, nothing. I would recommend the alloy motor mount which is only a necessity if your motor gets hot enough to soften it and allow the motor to move, the rest is up to you.

If you can

1) structure weather and energy derivatives (index / parametric solutions)
2) structure alternative collateral programs
3) ability to trade credit default swaps and collateralized debt obligations
4) conduct risk modeling (probability exceedance, etc)
5)deliver technical presentations to C-level / hedge funds / specialized funds,

If you have an MBA, CPA, CFA, Series 7 / 31 / 66

If you can do / have the above then would be interested in discussing.

I am in the process of building a 104v2. What other brands of spur gears will fit on this car? And is an adapter needed to fit aftermarket spur gears? adapter part number?

Get the adapter edhchoe suggests and you can use any brand of standard spur gear.

Are the tyres new? In my experience they need a few runs on them to scrub them in.

Thanks guys. I found the spacer right after I posted. It is good to know that I will be able to run any brand. This way I don't have to replace the Robinson gears I already have.
