I'm sort of worried about the tire degradation after the UF1 WCRC race on my I/10 car

I want to know the same thing, since the Quantum 3 was a good esc and had LiPo cut off. My answer for my F104 will be to test the LRP Nexxt 4x.

Please can someone tell me if Tamiya plastic link system (51480) for F104v2/RM-01 has the same length than the Associated RC12.5 link system? Which do you prefer?. I broke my FRP Sybrand link system (TRG type) and i am thinking in changing it for one of these.

Regards

So you prefer the Associated one?

I noticed screws used are different from Tamiya , M2X6 for the 5 mm pivot balls and M3X5 for attaching them to the chassis? Is it right?.

Thanks.

Sorry, I can't remember.
I have broken one tamiya link (on the first run) but have not broken any team associated ones.

I think Exotek F1R also uses the Associated plastic links. Can someone post the screws and pivot balls used with it?.

Thanks.

exotek uses the associated links and pivot balls. The associated links fit fine on the tamiya pivot balls. I've run associated links, tamiya links, even 1 of each when I was low on spares. I've broken both before. The trick in the end is to use m2x7mm or longer screws in the links and you should never break another one.

Have noticed over time the Tamiya links start to bend. Haven't found it to adversely affect performance though.

Thanks a lot, the problem is Sybrand Scythe does not use rear springs, maybe thatīs the reason to use fiberglass links. I think TRG fiberglass links may be right also but very difficult to find some webshop for TRG spares.

To my understanding I thought you had converted a F104 V2 to use the Syband fiberglass links.

You can't use the normal plastic pivot ball and link system without the side springs. The car loses all steering (tried it once)

It would be a matter of emailing a TRG stockist to order the parts in for you. I haven't come across anyone that really lists the spare parts regularly available on their website... even in japan.
