Tamiya would most probably discontinue the Pro kit and come out with "normal" kits. ie, kits with glass fibre chassis, plastic diff outdrives and no blue blink stuff etc.....

Maybe a F104RM or something.

I also try to put the F103 rear wheels and F103 diff housing on F104 (no need to use F103 shaft), it fits too

For front wheels
F103 front wheels on F104 -> NO, unless you use the F103 front suspension
F104 front wheels on F103 -> YES
Pardon my ignorance, why can't the diff housing fit the regular 103 metal shaft? Is the 103 shaft too short?

opposite, the F103 shaft is too long to fit the F104 diff housing

I didn't see a blue aluminum gear box in the photos in the build thread. Does the kit come with the aluminum gear box or is that seperate?
