Abu, can you make those pictures any bigger? They are tiny! Hard to see anything!

You can click on the individual pictures to get a bigger image. I'm sorry the photographer did not zoom in his shots. It could have been better.

Ali it will fit but the front & rear would not have the same width. In this case the rear will be narrow.

For now that will be a problem. F104w runs on 103 tires. Tamiya has not produce f103 spare rubber for long time.

So if you choose to race the w, you will have to run with the rubber tires that comes with it. No spares.

Replied thx!



For the Exotek owners out there-
I've been working on a few developments. One of them is roll stoppers to help keep the front wheels from lifting and the car from dumping over on high grip tracks. With this you can run medium soft side springs for low speed traction and the roll stops helps losing the car at high speeds. See attchd. I just drilled extra set of holes and installed 16mm screws. You can also try fuel tube or 2nd set of firm springs there also for dual rate effect.
