Yeah they wont know what insert you are using -- well to be honest with you i dont think they will check the insert you use. i got TRG tire insert they feel so soft --- but too bad i already attach and glue it in my TRG tires.

I misread the rules. there is no restriction on the insert choice.
See there is no tire insert restrictions ehehhehhe --- so you can use car wash sponge too without being disqualified

I can't speak for the Honda, but my F60 has a YR 10.5 brushless. Actually the Honda has a 19t in her.

You found it, just ask away, any question, "somebody" will chime in. Since I joined, this site is GOLD. So if you have the time, skim through the past pages. You'll find what you're looking for. But if not, like I said, just ask.

i had a new unglued set of tamiya F1 rubbers, same question as r_s, not whether it's legal/illegal to run it without insert in TCS, but rather how it handles without insert, good/bad, anyone tried before?

Doesn't the f103 and f104 use the same composite knuckles? It should fit? only the bearing outer is different size but the inner hole are the same.
