You know you can now mount a 190MM touring car body on it if you want. Its the same size if you are using F104 tires and wheels on a F103 with F104 front suspension.

I run F103s. I modified mine by shaving the spacer nubs off the middle of the upper A arm assembly and now I can correct camber so my tires wear better. Of course that's not TCS legal.

Exotek is a good chassis either way F103 or F104. The Yeah Racing chassis does not include the parts to make it a link chassis.So its just a T bar car untill you spend more money on it.So you have a T bar car all ready,you could get the Exotek and run it both ways 03 and 04. Then you know if you like link set ups.
The big deal with the F104 is where the T bar pivots.Any conversion the move the pivot foward is a step in the right direction with the F104.
