I got my shimizu tyres today and am wondering if I have to trim the foam insert to fit the wheel or does it stay in the tyre?

Thanks

Foam stays in the tire, it'll have an air gap, drill at least a couple 1/8" holes in the rims.

I just did mine too, with the help from the guys that have been running them for a while now.

Glue them carefully to keep them lined up and they'll be fine.

Does anyone make a servo mount set that has threaded holes where the lower and upper decks screw together? Tamiyas aluminum servo mount is a thru hole design like the kit part, while their alum rear pivot mount changed to a threaded thru hole so you replace the top nut and single long screw with top and bottom screws.

The reason I want it is because it's difficult to tighten the ball studs /nuts while holding the chassis flat, the screw just spins around. Of course I can hold a driver/wrench on the other side but wouldn't this prevent the chassis from being tightened evenly and flat? Like how you wont tighten a TC top deck by holding the chassis on your hand? Or does this not matter on the f104?

I cut the part off of the stock plastic servo mounts and used a 1/2" stand-off that I tapped to 3mm. It works quite nicely.

I've been using 1/12 scale springs from Windtunnle racing. They have a good range of spring rates to work with.
