There are a handful of variants for this car. Which is the one (race grade) to get?

Hello again.
I the first race weekend with the F104V2 Pro (about three weeks ago) , I won the race and in the Regionals (a mouth ago) my possition was 4th, with 2 international drivers on top (they have gold hands!!).
The 101 hasn't touch the ground yet. I will try it tomorrow with the setup of the manual.
I'll post the impressions tomorrow.

So has anyone been able to compare differences between the 101 and the new 101W coming down the line? Is it essentially the same car with different front carbon arms to make it wider?
I am debating whether to get a 101 and upgrade to a "W" when parts become available or if I should wait for the "W".

New tuning option steel shaft. Supposedly compatible with F104 and TRF101? I thought they were different lengths since the TRF101 uses a wider rear pod.

The "W" has a thinner chassis and a different upper deck. May aid a bit in lower traction tracks combined with the wider front. Whether it is a huge difference, I'm not sure, but I'm just going to stick with my current 101 since the changes seem minor.

It appears to be mounted farther back, for more favorable ackerman with steering knuckle link point. I've already done this with my current TRF101.

Hi guys, this is probably a really dumb question but I'm wondering how to change the camber on the front and rear of the chassis.
I've read most of the thread and figured out how to change the ride height at the front of the chassis but not totally sure about camber.. I figure it has something to do with those blue anodised plates on the front arms that hold the suspension together..? Lol

Your help would be much appreciated

you are correct just turn the plate around you will see a small mark in the middle.You can not change camber in the rear.
