Why not try the stock gearing? works for me.

i think its 25/93.

You then can work from there to suit your driving needs.

Does anybody know where I can get the F104 Pro Kit right now?
Seems to be out of stock where I usually buy stuff.

Check a few posts back - rc champ (email only: [email protected]) and precisionrc (www.precisionrc.com). I got mine from RC Champ and have bought lots from them over the years.

I have heard through the grapevine that the F104 body will fit on the old F201chassis. Anyone know if there is any truth to that? I'd really like to update the looks of my f201 to '08 spec (to go along with my shelf-queen F2001 body). Sadly no one races F1 in my area...not that the F201 would be competitive with the F103RM's and new F104 anyway, I'm just an F1 fanatic.

I got mine from a store on eBay. Their eBay ID is "hobbycloseout". It was a good deal for $190 with $10 shipping.
