Hey Guys,

What is the average weight of a fully equipped F104? My car has 1150g.

Thanks
Oortael

Thanks.
I've gotten my f104 pro down to 1125grams without any milling of the chassis or parts. But I'm using a 2800 mah pack and tcs racing. Does anyone know what the minimum weight is for tcs f1 racing?

No minimum weight for F1 this year but there was a "spec" battery rule.

There is no minimum weight, and the spec battery was for the Finals only. If you can find an even smaller pack (mini Revo) you can get down further. That's really only applicable to carpet/super high traction.

Hi robk,

I saw your video blog considering the tyre graining. Could you give more details about track conditions, please?

Have you got the same issue with the Pro kit?

regards
