MaxSp97, I like what you have done! Because...

We have developed a set of option front axles for the F103/F104. This will allow you to run the F104 front end on the F103. So you will have the same width front and rear if you choose to run F104 front end. There are many advantages to running the F104 front end, including adjustable ride height, realistic appearance and better strength. These axles will be machined from titanium for super light weight and strength. We estimate the price to be approximately $15 a pair and should be ready in the next few weeks.

Happy racing!

Default F104 Pro Manual

Here is the link for the F104 Pro Manual for who want to convert the F104 front end to their F103.
You need to order all the parts for the front end, screws, steering turn buckles and the servo mounts.

Does anyone have a good carpet setup they would like to share? I'm trying to get setup for a series on a carpet track and I need a solid place to start.

99.9% Tire choice!
Period.
Tire compound and sauce technique.
Goes like this:
Track likes Jack the Gripper? How much and how long?
Sauce full rear and half the front? 15 minutes? That's what the can says.
Adjust from there.
Fast guy at the track probably has the trick, just sayin.

I tried to run some laps with my 103 last wek, but had a motor issue and no spare, so my running was very limited and I spent most of the time tryin stuff on my 104.
I have fixed the issues and am planning to go back later this week.
I was running HBR Meds all the way around and the car felt like it actually had too much grip
Will report out after some more testing

The diffuser should sandwich between the rear pod and the T-plate
