I use a hobbywing 13T brushless combo and [email protected] lipos with lipo cut at 3,2V and they last near 15 min in race conditions. Gear is 63x20

Ohh and have you tried out the suggestion on here to put weights on the winglet things under the receiver and ESC? i'm gonna go buy some weights tomorrow and give it a crack when I race next... racing 1/8th offroad this weekend, so no F1 for me this sunday.
i have seen the comment about the weights i have not yet tried it i have weights at home how much weight is been put under the receiver and speedy ?

Tires are taller and the width is more narrow than the 103.

Yes, also the battery runs lengthwise instead of sideways.

F103 front end is wider and with the wider rear tires has an overall wider stance. F103 is faster overall but the F104 is a replica of the modern F1 cars as the F103 resembles the older F1 cars.

So F103 is for tighter track and F104 is better for a high flow/speed track?

Nope.

F104 can't touch the F103 pound for pound. Maybe close if the F104 is widened with 103 stuff.

The F104 is just what's in now due to support and popularity. It's the new F1.

If you're gonna get one, get the F104 X1. It's the newest of the new.

Thanks, i just thought since the F104 has a longer wheel base it has a bigger turning radius than F103, therefore it can't turn as tight.
