I am still running a Tamiya F104 at my local club. This car started life as a pile of free extra parts that I've slowly upgraded to basically a Tamiya F104 X1. The only Tamiya blue aluminum parts that I'm missing are servo mounts (Part# 54203) & the pivot post (Part# 54169) - both have long since been discontinued.

I am racing indoors on black carpet using CRC F1 premounts. While the car is fun to drive and reasonably competitive, it tends to push on power and lift the inside rear wheel through the corners. Does anyone with experience racing the F104 have any general setup advice?

- T-bar? (Currently using a 3-racing 1.8mm 1-piece t-bar)
- Front springs? (Currently using Tamiya F1 gold front springs)
- Upper deck? (Currently using long carbon fiber upper deck but can switch to separated FRP upper deck)

Here is a pic of the car and thanks for any advice.
