Anyone interested in buying an F104 Pro, brand new? It's assembled, but I have not painted the body yet. Asking $180 shipped.

Default F104 Rubber

I'm running a set from Pit Shimizu (I can'T post links yet, but google should be your friend.) They fit over the kit wheels.

I'm also waiting for RIDE to come out with Rubber for the 104. I've normally run RIDE rubber on my 103.

You know 104 has rubber, but no wheel.

Yeah, I haven't seen any aftermarket wheels come out for it yet. Only the kit ones. Which I guess is ok if you only want black

or better yet: Why do we want LESS traction on a already traction limited car?

Not having to run with 103's would be my only guess

A few of us are fitting GT axles in our F1's
seem that a little bit of tape or heat shrink takes an imperial bearing from the CRC or RC10 to the size that fits in to the Tamiya ride height units.
And for the front you need 5x8mm Flanged bearings which fit straight in to the Pro10/GT front wheels.
Then you have a much wider range of tyres to use

Have you tried mounting the battery perpendicular rather the inline with the chassis? If so, handle any better, worse?
