Can't believe you guys are complaining about the diff design! If you have run F1's on rubber before you know that once it is setup it is just a case of maintaining the diff. Here is a diff with zero maintainence and you are all complain? And it will be sooooooooooo free too!

you might want to pick up also the tech racing f1-f108 ... awesome car if you want an alternative to the f103-104pro-new HPI

A ball diff is still better. Im sure HPI will offer it as a option part.

Note the ball diff picture also appears to have rims for foam tires! HPI vs. Tamiya coming to a track near you...

Anyone else see that Horizon Hobby has the kit listed for $130? (I'd post a link, but I'm too new to do so evidently)

Also note that the foam rims pictured appear to be wider in the rear then the rubber tire. They look much like the F103 rim in terms of size.
