More flex = more rear traction.
It's hard enough to get the F103 to push.
If you have tons of traction, stiffen it up.
If your car is loose, make it softer in the rear.
I'm learning that on our kinda bumpy, kinda low grip track that soft rear is best.
Soft rear spring, firm front springs, soft T plate, short top deck plate, fiberglass (thinner) chassis, softer/looser T plate adjustment but no side to side play.
Tires are key too.
If you can get em, Medium fronts and Soft rears or even Super Soft rear donuts on your old rims.That is the top choice here.
2 star premounts front and rear are pretty dialed but wear quickly and cost a bunch.
I'm new to the F1s but spent the day today with some of the top dogs of the TCS West and that's just a speck of what they are doing.
