Hi, u may try using softer springs for the front suspension. that's what i did to mine as my F103 keep having oversteering problem on asphalt track.i think the front is too stiff that makes the steering very sensitive. i'm using black soft spring at the front with Zen foam tyres and its running well now..

hope it helps

does anyone run the 53258 link front suspension on their car? I've thought about picking one up, but not sure how strong the upper arms are.

It's very strong, but it will also give you even more steering. Get the 3Racing aluminum caster adjustment piece and it's easier to dial in.

Default Rubber or foam tires? HELP!

Hey guys,

I will be racing on a rubberized gynamsium floor and I need some help sorting out tires.

All of the touring cars that race there use HPI X-pattern tires and they have a ton of grip. The surface is always room temperature (air conditioned school).

Should I try running foams or go straight to rubber tires?

Also, what rubber tires should I use? Ride or Shimizu? Medium front and soft rear?

You try RC Champ? They can get them factory direct.

http://www.rc-champ.co.jp/Champ_Inte...onal_index.htm

Click the email link in the how to order section and then send them your request with Tamiya part numbers. They only ship Mondays and I've had stuff in less than a week to my home.

I'm pretty sure D drive only ships Mondays, I've had RC Champ stuff ship most days during the week.
