That would be great for a spec tire for big races..provided they work well. Having to glue up spec tires at the check in table is a pia. They would need to work well on carpet without having to glue the sidewalls of the tire to stiffen them up.

Yes, we will find the correct ways to do it right. Thanks

Is there still a trade in for the very first generation of the F1 tire? I still have 2 full sets, one unglued for sure.

A narrow rear ended F103 with tall tires! The rear axle for the F103 and F104 is the same width, but the pod side plates don't go as high on the F103 as the F104 so the rear will sit high. The F103 is 20mm wider in front, but you can bolt the F104 front end on it to get it back to a shorter wheelbase 180mm trackwidth car.

Hmm… So the rear hub are forming the same width and the front of the F104 is 20mm narrower than the F103 . If I mount the rear the F104 rim then I get a width of 180mm and mount the F103 200mm . But if I mount the F104 rims on the F103 , I get a width of 200mm . So the two are in the same offset only the rear are different… Only with a narrow axis I can fix it to 180mm.

Have I understood correctly..?

To make it 200mm with F104 rims you would indeed need a wider axle or rims for the rear with greater offset.

The problem is , I have a F103RS and would like race with them but our race rules say 190mm width and sweep rims… I think I need to buy a new chassis maybe a SpeedPassion SP-1...

Hello
There are no rims on FGX (sakura) that can be used with Sweep tires
