that only works for the F104 with the aluminum/Pro diff parts...if you are running the plastic F103-styled diff pieces, you need and extra 8x12 bearing to replace the plastic bushing

how low gearing can you get on the F104?

its needed for a high Kv motor.

If you use the 0.4 module you can for certain go as low as 20/104.
These are the spurs and pinion i have here.
What are you planning??
A dragster??

Nono no dragster.. it isn`t for me.

A friend is perhaps going to push the F104 a bit. going down in motor size and weight and down in turns to offset it..
a possible option is the team powers mini 540. it weights in a 140grams. supposedly..

Another option is smaller 2cell pack or 1cell and even lower turns.

Carpet and foam mostly..

do you need more gearing on 1cell?

another option i told him is to go with a Novak three80 motor. 100gramish and 200watts is as far as that type goes. But it would need for a custom motor mount.

hes currently running a 17.5 turn. (speedpassion i believe(heavy pig)) and is mostly running on a small track good for 1/12scale and m-chassie.

I just had an Email from Tamiya US. Saying it will be at least 3 months until the release of the X1 ..... Although!! The email also said the car would come WITh rubber tires and wheels, no body and "uncertain" about the motor!

A little different to the caption in the X1 promo vid saying none of these items would come in the X1 "Limited Edition" kit?!

Also ..... I see Tower has the X1 listed at $274 ..............
If thats with no body.... no wings, No wheels and tires and no motor. It sounds like its going to be a little pricey to get this cool cat on the road

Which would you guys recommend for a car on asphalt? Waiting for the X1 or a Black special with rubber tyres?
