There is another brand on tqracing that have them as well with 0.5, 1,1.5, 2. Degrees.


I drove my car yesterday and what a blast it is.later on we got some light rain and i still drove it through the light rain and that was funny as hell with a 17.5

Have some small issues and looking g for some input. The car pushes on power, the pitch damper has 30 oil and 20 on the side one 4000 lipo towards the rear position. Im getti g ready to order some more goodies and wondering if the small spacer to run the spur is all i need to run 64 or 48 pitch?

yip the 'pom' ring is all you need to switch to 48 pitch. 3racing do one as well as tamiya. as for the push maybe try different front springs and 'motorboat' your ride height(high front low rear). and softer front tires

Cool ill switch to 64 or 48 so i can use my spare gears. Everything is stock, but now that you mention it the front is low enough not to drag, but the back is way high after i installed the aluminum motor mount.

Im running it on a low to medium bumpy asphalt big track will placing the lipo towards the front be a wise idea and put the esc right under to damper mount? Sort of trying to figure out how to clean up the wiring.

i personally have never played around with battery position so cant really comment on that but the ride height thing is quite critical(imho) i run on rubber tires so just have the ride height permanently set as low as it can go in the rear with the kit axle holders. and in the front i aim for 4mm minimum. foam tires are gonna need constant monitoring as the foams wear. like you i run a bumpy outdoor track so the minimum ride height can be a pain tho now i have changed my line to keep away from the rough spots(well i like to try and change my line lol) the heavy pivot post is a good option for getting weight in the right spot in the car without sticking clumps of lead all over the place. and clean wiring is also super important as the rear pod can get comprimised easly and cause handling issues. try running the car in a area where you can see the car clearly with out the body on and watch if the wires move when turning left or right.then put the body on and see if it changes?

hope this helps

I'm considering to sell all the original titanium plated aluminium parts of my F104X1.
If anybody is interested in the F104 X1 Alu parts just let me know with a Private Message, maybe when can work something out.
I live in europe, just keep that in mind.

Kind regards
