Default New build finally underway

Finally got around to start the build of my F104 V2 titanium. What's the current thought of on a light sand & sealing the edges of the carbon fibre parts with instant cement?
My local hobby store mentioned that sealing the edges protects from delaminating but also makes the pieces stiffer with less flex.
I don't know if any of the carbon fibre parts are required to flex. The parts I was going to instant cement edge treat are the lower deck, lower brace, body mount plate, front upper deck, rear upper deck and the engine mount rear panel (C8).
Should I avoid treating any of these?
Thanks guys - No doubt more silly questions to come.

Sealing makes the car prettier and let's it keep its good condition longer especially if you run it outside. I have had treated and non treated f1 cars and haven't noticed any difference in handling.

Just got my first F104. It's a V2 with the Exotech chassis and front end. I picked it up used and it's basically mint. This may be a dumb question but I can't figure out how to raise the ride height. Currently it is setup for carpet. It has the 1mm plate up front to drop the ride height. I plan to run asphault on a parking lot track. It's pretty smooth as parking lots go. I typically run my TC's 5.0/5.5 for ride height. What would be a good height setup for the F104?

rear height is adjusted by different oval inserts. there are three different ones.
front height is adjusted by the amount of space above the kingpin. more space above = more ground clearance.
Mine is set at 4.2mm f/r.

Default Spur / Pinion Gear

I now need to wait around for a new Left Diff Joint to arrive - broke it doing it up too tight
Hey guy's saw a V2 set up sheet that used a 93T spur with a 34T pinion. (producing a 2.74 FDR) Has anyone successful tried and used a bigger pinion gear on the 93T spur? How big can you go?

It depends on the track layout but 2.7 is not that extreme. I am running 96/34 on mine currently.

Thanks Edhchoe. Seeing I need to get a new diff joint shipped I might as well get some pinion gears too. Some at the local track run 2.5 FDR depending on the track setup. With your setup is there much more movement adjustment to allow for larger pinion gear?

To get 2.5 I would have to put 38t pinion. I am not 100% sure if the motor mount slots have enough room for a 38t. But I also have different size spur gears, 93 and 88t, for lower FDR.

you can also use the tamiya F104 spur gear adaptor #54215 , and then use more standard spur gears
