That being said, the F104 diffuser is too small to do anything. They also have to be as low to the track as possible.

Can I see more pics?

I'm waiting to get the McLaren MP 4/6 when it's released, but in the meantime couldn't help myself and got one of the Lotus Honda 99T...never owned the F103 before, so thought why not

I've just picked up a used F104W, the Lotus Type 79, and the two aluminum bolts that secure the front end and bumper were completely stripped. The local hobby shop doesn't want to bring replacements in as they always strip. Does anyone have an alternate solution or source for steel replacements?

has anyone got any feedback or done some testing on running the F60 Chassis over the F104pro. I understand that the pro graphite chassis was stiff and that people went about adjusting the top deck with cutout's etc, but what if any difference for the good would be running both the upper and rear deck from the F60.
