Default Tamiya Body mounting F103 v F104 v F104w

I was wondering if it was physically possible to use a body made for one Tamiya F1 chassis on another. I understand that it won't be scale realistic, but I just need to know if the holes are the same. The reason why is I am trying to build a custom body, and I can only find information for an F103. I wanted to know if I used one of the other chassis designs if it would work.

Thanks in adavance.

No sir they are not. The 104's use a different location than the 103's and 102's. This is why the re-release bodies from the 103 days don't come with holes anymore. The 104's have been relocated due to the newer chassis design and the larger/taller side pods on the newer bodies. The front ends are also different and require more trimming on the 104's. Hope this helps.
