RM-01 Carbon Rein L Parts - Link 2pcs RM01 / F104 V2

I have been using the carbon reinforced links and puck on my 104v2. They are tremendously better than the stock links. I have not had any break. It also really helps to get the rear pod lined up correctly. The old ones would bend and allow the pod to shift forward during a crash. Then the pod would bind.
No issues with these.

Been running the Carbon parts since I saw them on TQ. Only broke 1 link but it was a very hard hit by a TC during practice.

Would anyone have a list of the screw sizes and amounts required for this car?

Going to get all the screws needed for the car in hex style so I can build it properly the first time.

Upgrades will depend if you plan to attend TCS or not. If you are going to TCS then only Tamiya parts are allowed, except what's allowed in their rules.

The nice thing about the V2 is that most of the good stuff is in the box. The best upgrade is the alloy motor mount. A lot of people trade out the shock but if built right those work. I would also swap out the side shock for the friction tube.

You'll find that the weight distribution and tires will affect the handling more than any upgrade.

I noticed after my last race my top arms on my F104v2 are not moving freely anymore, how do you guys maintain them? I read about putting a ball on a dremel, and having it spin on the arm to loosen them a little

My new project to get some front grip, i wanted a better option to adjust caster, but didn't want to buy the Exotek just yet, so i made this to test it out.

I saw on TQRacing the parts to make this, and i had most of the parts from my RC planes, so i made this.




I have noticed my front tends to "hop" a little making my car push, i'm hoping this will help me get a better setup when i put 2 or 3 degrees of caster on the front, and i will also try to move my shorty lipo as far forward as possible by removing the tabs on my servo and bringing it another half inch forward.

Thanks.

I've got a noob question about F1 tires. I know they can last a long time without being changed out if you drive clean and avoid walls, bumps, crashes etc. I usually run on carpet and have had the same tires for quite sometime. They're starting to feel like they are loosing their grip. Do the tires not perform as well over time and you have to replace them because of degradation?
