Thanks in advance
For as long as i'm driving my F104 i have never had any spare parts used except for the rear spoiler, due to impacts from behind it intends to brake much quicker then you will be needing some other spare parts.
If i would think of what kind of spares you could use then i should mention those front springs and a spare rear axle.
Incase you would be using a carbon rear axle it's better to have one in spare cause they can brake by having a heavy impact.
I've seen only one big crash from a friend and his car needed a new gear case (lower part that has the diffusor in it) but other then that i've never seen heavy impacts that a F104 couldn't handle.
Hope this helps you.

I've been racing mine pretty regular since November and have only destroyed my CF rear axle and diff joint when the brace screw from the alloy motor mount backed out and rubbed on the diff causing enough friction to actually fuse the axle into the joint.

I keep a spare set of front arms, steering knuckles, side links and screws.

I've fitted my old F104PRO body on the F104Ver.II, the only thing i had to do is make the rear body holes a little bit bigger and that's it.
Bodyposts from a ver.II are bigger in diameter, that's the only difference.
Hope this helps.

OK,
I thought Xceed tires do not adapt on F104 front end.

thanks

they do not

there some modifications on my car... (the upper car is my F104GT 235mm wide... so I like to make modifications :-) ):
- I use TRG Front Uprights
- I poped out some spacers of the TRG uprights kit, so it's lower than the original ones
- I use shorter king pins...
so I can put xceed F103 tires there... O:-)

Los Angeles Sunday's winter track test:

1. If you have not PM me your name/transporter number please email it ASAP to marcos@WhatBrakes.com
Its the only thing you need to do for per-registration.

2. Bring water, food and suntan lotion (if you need to bring some grid girls that's OK too )

3. Bring your easy up (optional) and power supply

See you Sunday!
