Default F1 car help

Im trying to decide between two f1's, the tamiya F104 or the 3Racing Sakura FGX. I will be racing 2s 21.5 rubber tire. Now if i did get the 3racing i would def get the front double wish bone upgrade. Just wanting some input on which i should get.

Are there more specific rules? The FGX is 190mm, the F104 is 180mm. If you get an FGX, get the Exotek conversion and wait for the Exotek IFS later this month. If you get the F104, get the V2.

From what I have seen of the 113, putting F104 wheels on the rear gets it down to 180, but the front would need different arms to narrow it. I'm not sure about ride height though. The taller F104 tires might make the F113 stand too tall. I like 3Racing stuff, so I hope they make a 180mm front end for it. The TRG F112 looks nice too. That one has been narrowed.
