104 180mm standard
104W 200mm standard
104Pro 180mm lots of options
104wgp 200mm with options
104v2 180mm options and link rear end instead of t plate like the rest.

That of course is in a nutshell. I'm glad you didn't ask about all the F103 models

welcome to the dark side Graham

A 104 and 104 pro are basically the same car, but the pro has more upgrades, like carbon chassis, alloy motor mounts etc,
These still use a traditional fiberglass tbar system and use friction plates.

you can get a standard 104 in wide which uses the F103 front suspension.

A 104 WGP is almost the same spec as a 104 pro,
but uses the wide F103 front end and has a few more upgraded parts, it still uses a fiberglass Tbar, but instead of the friction plates uses a side roll damper.

A F104 V2 Pro goes back to the narrow front end and does away with fiberglass tbar and uses side springs and a side roll damper,
The V2 also does not come with an alloy motor mount as standard.

I hope this helps

Beth.

This is ridiculous for a newbie in f1. So there are 4 basic f104 in 180mm?

The 104, 104 pro, 104 v.2 and 104 v.2-pro? Does the v2-pro have the aluminum motor mount?

Reading all these Difference threads on the different version has made me more confused

As I understand it there currently is only 1 version of the V2 and I believe that is the pro version.

yep sorry so the V2 is also called a pro, but the amount of upgrades it needs i wouldnt call it that.
It basically has the same rear pod as the 12th scale RM-01.

You forgot the F104 X1

Which is basically the 180mm F104 Pro but with the tube damper rather than the damper plate, this is exactly the same as the F104WGP but 180mm front end rather than the 200mm front end.

I used a black paint pen on my blue mounts. I wasn't great. I'll probably easy-oven the blue off and run them silver.
