good afternoon
The advice on what to wear to the zero control.
It is important that the cruise control is a fast zero mode.
Tamiya Formula 1 F104Pro RCcar speed passion 21.5 motor must V3.
Momentum and winding short courses running in the car.
It should be zero for zero esc controller is better than the other mod esc.
Thanks for your help!

How about any Tamiya F1 Junkies that may have already put together a TRF 101 Front End Parts list???

For those of us that are much lazier and not as sharp?

Thanks.

I don't think the front upper carbon piece is available yet. Or is it?

The Tamiya parts aren't available yet, if anyone wants to find out what parts to buy you can find all the parts, and all the part numbers, in the manual that can be downloaded from Tamiya.

The parts are kind of available in Japan, Tech Racing already make their own version. Unfortunately no one that posts outside Japan stocks them right now, although I would guess Banzai Hobby would order them for anyone who wants one.

Default f103 motor mount on a f140x1

Can I use the F103 motor mount on the F104X1. Will this lower the rear of the car more then what I can with the standard rear ride height blocks. Anyone know?

If you want to get lower you can always shim the motor mounts . Raising the axle lowers the right height. I have never needed to go lower the #2 on top even on carpet. Besides if you use the F103 motor mounts you won't be able to use the x1 roll damper without customizing. If you're okay with that you have this option. http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=2337. Also 3 racing makes axle bearing holders in half increments. I don't own these so I'm not sure if they make a 2.5 maybe someone else can chime in on this.

With the F103 Motor mount you will get more ride height,
just use the F104 Motor mount.The Yeah Racing Motor mount
has about the same Ride height as the F104 one.

Check the link in green Yeah motor mount gives you more ride height adjustment with the spacers on top or bottom http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=2337 But like you said go with the f104 motor mount.

if you put the 2mm spacers on the bottom youll get the same ride height as the F104 pod. if you put them on the top its like the F103 one.
So it does not lower the ride height.

I am looking to find this product: Rsector SR-F104-001 High Capacity LiPo Conversion for the F104/W/PRO/X1 cars (http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=2680). TQ RC had it in stock before I bought my F104X1, they say it is now discontinued. It would work perfect for me since I use a Reedy 5500 2S LiPo for my X1 and am looking for a way to do quicker battery changes.
Is it truly discontinued?? If not, where can I find one??
If it is truly discontinued, is there anything on the market similar to it that might work just as well??
