One of our racers has that on his F104...looks cool. He doesn't seem to do any better or worse than the rest of us.

Kmas, thanks for posting... I have been looking for this part, does anyone know where we can buy this?

from just looking at the picture, it seems that we can replace the rear pod with this upgrade from trg... i think all it is doing is dampers to each side so the rolling is more consistent... and we wont have to worry about putting different oil/grease on the friction pad... here is a video i found http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXh9d...eature=related

(video is of the trg-109 not on the f104)

Ive had the TRG thing for about 2 or so months - very impressive seems to have much smoother and consistent roll transition than the friction plates

they are not dampners - tubes are filled with friction grease

banzaihobby .com sorry not allowed to send a link seems i havnt reached that level

s where I got mine from - had a few other purchases from them and everything went very sweetly - fast effcient service - best Ive encountered

I could be wrong but I believe they only stock it if its made in Japan.

Enjoy
