Default Rear Tyres

Some versions of the F104W use foam tyres, 84192, 84193, 84194.
http://www.tamiya.com/english/produc...aren/index.htm

And it uses 45mm wide rear tyres like the old F103 and the rear width is only 5mm less that a F103RM.

So has it got F103 rear rims and a new rear shaft or whats going on, can anyone confirm?

Can someone please tell me what size the plastic "F3" washer on the F104 front end. It's the washer that sits on the front upright? I would like to buy some of these but in metal.

Thanks

Edit: Thanks silencery

The ones that go on the kingpin to control ride height? The ID is 3mm. I'm using these: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ...yword=&pg_no=1

Hello all,

I recently bought an F104W and am looking for the parts to convert it to the standard F104 width. I know I need at least the F104 suspension arms, does anyone know what other parts I'll need?
