Yeah, I have one. I like it - it's different than the common Tamiya or F109, drives very smooth with no bad habits. I am a relatively new racer so the stability suits me.

I have added the ball diff (not really sure that was necessary), the aluminum shock, and the alum motor mount (this is CRITICAL for the car).

Oh yeah, forgot.... I never tried the kit tires due to all the negative comments. I went straight for the HPI 'S' tires.

Does anyone know if the HPI rims/tires are the same size as the F103 ones? They look pretty much identical in the pics.

For rubber tires its 12mm hex on all 4 corners...same as f201.

I am assuming that foam rears are 12mm as well, but I do not know if the fronts use the same size bearing as a f103 (F103 uses 5x8x2.5mm). Some of the kit bearings are not metric, so the front wheels may not be either??

Ah...I see they changed it from what they first showed at one of the early model shows...that one showed the ball diff as having the same style hubs as the F103 and the rims for foam looked identical. The front wouldn't be too difficult to fit to a F103 as you would only need the F103GT knuckles and axles...the rear I'm not so sure on.

does anyone know if the HPI F10 rubber wheel fits on the F104 ?
direct fit ? Modification required ?

I tried to put HPI rubber on a F104 wheel... the rears fit 90%... pretty tight fit... the fronts deform the tire so much it's unusable...
