Im running a JR servo in mine, dont know the # either, but it works well.
For Lipo's im running a 3800 Orion pack that has the banana plugs. I made a harness to get to a deans plug.
My car is a pro kit and for the hop ups I have the motor mount and the aluminum rear pivot

I have some miscellaneous servo from where I got it from... works fine... I have an Ace 1313 to go in it if I want... (really fast and relatively cheap)

I use an Orion 3400 LiPo... fits perfectly....

From the Tamiya Blog:

Among F1 fans, one legendary machine that stands out with its vivid gold lines is the Wolf WR1 which now comes realized as a 1/10 R/C machine loaded on the F104 chassis. Led by wealthy Canadian businessman owner Walter Wolf, the WR1 made its debut at the 1977 Argentine GP and started the race in 11th position. Driven by team driver Jody Scheckter, the WR1 went on to win the race and record the first ever win for the team. The 1977 season saw Jody Scheckter win three championship races and finish overall 2nd in the drivers championship.
This is a limited edition 1/10 R/C assembly kit model of the Wolf WR1.
Length: 460mm, Width: 206mm, Height: 105mm.
The F104 chassis has specially designed features such as F103 front arms to allow you to mimic the dimensions of F1 machines of the 1970ís.
Keeping true to the 1970ís style, the WR1 comes with large sized rubber rear tires like the Tyrrell P34 Six Wheeler 1976 Japan GP (Item 84111) and small front wheels which provide the machine with a realistic scale presence.
The body is accurately reproduced with durable polycarbonate.
Sticker sheet depicting the WR1ís famous livery included.
A resin bumper is equipped under the front wing to protect against shocks and crashes.

Hey guys,

can anyone give me a good starting ride height for asphalt, i.e what spacers to use in the rear pod, and what arrangment of the shims for the front?,

thanks,

Charles

Well on a good day mind you, this is assuming your tires are new, foams up front and rubber in the rear. "My" shims up front are arranged with the thickest on the bottom and the thinest and medium one on top. That's about med ride hieght. If your asphalt is super smooth, then adjust accordingly. The rear I'm presently runnin the zero. With that set-up on this good day I got the following.

My first official race with the 104. My car is at pole position. Still trying to figure out the car so I take some wiiide turns lol. Any way, I hope this class gains good ground. Feels good to drive something other than TCs.
