Thought the paint issue was dead. Can't we move on to discussing using a Bridgestone or Goodyear tire decal? Or if we should use tire decals at all.

Ah come on, we could have that many cars at CMR, especially if you and me suppled a few loaner cars plus the others out there.

I'd go for that! Bring on the 310mm RC F1 wheelbase!

Wow we need a 310mm wheel base f1 bet the longer wheel base off sets the 180mm narrow cars.

I remember reading somewhere that was the case in 1:1

Has anyone tried narrowing the front track and how it affects the handling?

I have an F109 and at my current track grip is very low and I can't find a handling balance I like. I've tried all the different tyre combinations that people recommend but its an unprepared track and I just can't get enough rear grip. The care is drivable (and probably reasonably fast) but I would just like it "nicer" to drive.

I've worked out a way to narrow the front to about 193mm. When I've read specs on other 2WD cars the front track is almost always listed as narrower than the rear so I have been wondering if this is a possible solution

A narrower width gives more roll, so may give you more steering, which if your cause is from excessive steering lock in corners then this can help reduce hooking on corner exit when power is applied.

Another thing to try is a different racing line, like turning in later to take a late apex which allows you to exit a corner straighter.

I doubt it has anything to do with excessive steering lock as I have my transmitter dual rate as low as 20... but I do have a lot of steering regardless

Sounds like you may have too much front bite and the rear can't hold on. Try tuning for a push and use the esc drag brake to get some forward weight shift for corner entry. Also try loosening the ball diff some so the rear can rotate better through the turns. Also make sure your drive settings in the esc are not too high. Too much initial punch will cause a loose rear end
