Can you fit a f104w body on a x1 without changing the arms?

highly doubt it...the f104 arms 'hit' the body and different points then the F103/F104w front end - the 104 goes thru the body at at least 2 points, the F103 only passes thru in 1 spot

change your x1 to a Xw1 - isn't that hard...tires is the most $$ part of the conversion

I knew I would have to cut the body to suit the f104 arms but more concerned if the low nose is high enough to fit the camber plate and what look to be the front arms sitting slightly higher. I am trying to keep the f104 front end to keep that extra adjustability. I just prefer the body shape of the old style f1's.

The wide bodies fit no problem, the camber plate does not get in the way.
Just cut the body to fit.

I drove my F104X1 Sybrand converted today after our touring car race. The car is perfect!!! I am very surprised with the good performance of the car. Very stable in curves!!!!! and yes I drove on foams, I practiced with Shimizu rubbers but personally I prefer foams.

Do they make a diff for the rear that you can actually adjust just like you do in a pan car? Or do they at least make one that is better than the one the X1 kit comes with?
