Dampeners for reduced nose bounce. More consistent then just putting grease on the steering pins.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Hope that helps!
2 things Mike...

1. Thanks a ton for the pic, did you cut the upper carbon piece yourself or did you pull it off something else? If you cut them yourself you need to make that a kit and sell it lol.

2. You know they make air compressors to clean your car off right?

This is for my F109.4
- Is the F10's rear tyres the same height as the F104's?
- Can I mount the F10's rear tyres on F104 rims? Or I have to mod the rims?
Need to use more stickier rear tyres.
...

Thanks in advance
Some guys told me that we can use HPI F10 tyres with RIDE wheels for F104... RIDE tyres also fits good=)
But my RIDE wheels and tyres does not arrived yet, and i can't check it by myself.

I have a nice one on the other side of the shop but I never have time to use it because I keep getting requests for pictures of F1 dampeners and what not

I know everyone is anti-rcmart, but I still use them. I got the rear motor mount, 1.6mm t bar and steering linkage from them. no issues here. I bought them all off ebay also so it saved me money on shipping.
