Look at the 3rd pic down, I made new spindles and the 1/4" wide spacer to get them to fit.

Sorry, I was referring to the post above mine about fitting the LiPo batteries, but thanks for the reply! The car looks great!

Damn guys! It's all your fault over here in this topic! No more doubts, no more whishing... I just ordered my own F104 Pro.

Going to make it a ING Renault. Especially now ING per direct has stopped the sponsorship due to the 'crashgate'.

Default fitting tires to wheels

I'm in the process of building my f104, but have a question around the tires and wheels fitting.

I've noticed that on the front wheels when I position the foams on the wheels that I have about 2-3mm of the inside of the wheel showing...is this right. The rear's appear to be the same as well

I would assume that the tires and wheels line up, but before I go taping up etc I just want to make sure I'm not making a rookie mistake.

Mine were the same way -- leave the gap on the inside.

You should be able to stretch the rears all the way across, you just need to work them a little
The fronts will probably leave about 2-2.5 mm of rim showing

Yeah I just went and looked -- my rears cover the whole rim.
