Well your new front end bolt onto other cars with the Tamiya bolt pattern or will it only fit your conversion?

Hi All, The F1R2 IFS set (indepenent front suspension) product pics and notes should be up by Friday unless an act of nature strikes

The set will technically bolt onto a standard F104's but the stock droop screws will not work on that narrow of chassis. Also you would need to use F1R2 servo mounts along with adding 2 holes in the F104 chassis for the servo mounts.

Hi, Yes it will bolt right on but you will just need F1R2 servo mounts and add 2 holes to the chassis.

they have quietly been on the website for about a week now they look way more "racey" (if that is an actual term) and finish off any front end beautifully
