nope, look closely @ e front suspension area, different between 104 n 109, unless u trim off alot.

you don't need to trim a lot off, just don't cut it out to the F104 line, cut it so it fits the F109 front

Questions??

Could anybody tell me if i try using F104 diff. housing and shaft in my F109, which left hub should i use.
In fact i found 2 from different aftermarket makes and want someone to tell me if both of them are usable or not:
http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-f10...h=595_744_1390
http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-f10...1-p-27709.html

I think the TRG 1 is better, in fact i think that 1 of 3racing could be possibly loosing, isn't it?

Best regards

You can still use original F109 left hun on F104 axle, it is only the right side that is different, and the F104 axle shorter on the right side.

Hi guys, A friend of mine has started putting this kit together and is having trouble getting the diff tight enough. It's all put together as per the instructions but no matter what we try the spur gear still free spins inside the diff halves. Has anyone else come across this?

Make sure the adaptor ring for the spur is not too wide. It might be preventing the diff halves from coming together.

You should check that the axial bearing washers drops freely down the axle.
it's a very tight fit and you might need to sand the axle slightly with a wet/dry sand paper (I had to)



When you mount the wheel on the diff side, make sure the washers goes straight onto the axle and don't bind - this could be the cause of your problem.

negative is back.
