I would like to know where can I get a protective film for the bottom chassis of my F104X1, this since we race in asphalt and I hate when my CF/Graphite chassis get scratched. I remember there was a guy here who sold them cut to spec but later on stopped selling them.

Also do you guys recommend ceramic diff balls for the diff or are the stock ones good enough?

I've got clear vinyl that works very well. I've had many people use it on their SCT chassis and inner fenders to keep them from scuffing. If you're interested, I'd be happy to supply you some at a minimal cost. It's not cut to spec, but it's very easy to apply, and will hold up. Feel free to PM me.

If I can't find a cut to spec sheet I will let you know right away!

I'm thinking about moving to brushless in my 104. I want to keep the car TCS legal, so I'm limited to what they allow. I am familiar with the Tekin RS, but I wanted to use a cheaper option. Does anyone have any experience with the Speed Passion Citrix Stock Spec or the Novak Edge? How well do they fit? How hard is it to keep the install from looking like spagetti?

Thanks

You might want to check in with Calvin Lee, RC tech screen name ( MaxSp97 )
That pic is his car, and since then he had a friend custom design a much slicker aluminum piece...
