Just a heads up, we don't to talk 1:1 racing on the RC threads since we all DVR while we're out beating our RC cars on race days.
Not even a spoiler alert warning goes over well.
Had to let you know so we won't have to give you false tuning advice at the next UF1 races.

Yup, there is a separate F1 thread in the chat lounge for 1:1 racing. We had a guy once here yelling out the 1:1 F1 results and people were not happy.

Todays race was wet, wet, wet. It only stopped just before the 2nd final, with the track being marginally dry around the 3rd. Was able to run all Qualifiers and finales, except for the 2nd Final, when my receiver died. After pouring the water out I managed to get it going again :P

Still, great sight to see F1s go full speed down the straight, spay flaying :P

Hey all, could use some help regarding springs for my F1R/F104. Seems to be a bunch of different part numbers for front suspension and center shock springs. Could someone list the appropriate Tamiya part numbers so I can get the right selection of springs to tune with ? Appreciate the help.

#50509 Front suspension (http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=50509)
Silver - Soft
Gold - Medium
Black - Hard


The center damper/shock uses any of the sedan springs sets...
#53163 RC Onroad tuned spring set (http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53163)
#53440 RC On-road hard spring set (http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53440)
#42168 Short black tuned spring set (http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=42168)

Just search the Tamiya USA site, type in 417 or TA06 in the search, then click on Hopups and start scrolling, there's quite a few to choose from.

Thanks Vyger. Would it be overkill if I just got all those part numbers you listed ?
Anybody use the Tamiya 53636 or 53635 springs ?

Not that I've ever seen. Most people use a soft spring, a red or a variation of that. I know there's a softer one for the mini cooper, gold colored, but I don't know the part number for it. Maybe somebody else on here can chime in.

IMO, you're really only going to use the soft springs.

Do you guys think that it would be beneficial to have a 3-axis accelerometer and gyroscope to help with set up of our cars? I was thinking it could help determine traction circle, accelerative forces (lateral and vertical G's), etc. so that we can best determine tires, stiffeners, droop, shock, etc. set up. What do you guys think? Any other ideas?

It would be invaluable!! .......... I've wanted to get a hold of a 3 axis acc' for ever. Could so use it on my 5thphone scale.
it would be handy to do all the analysis ......... to see where we stand with the designs and set-ups being used.

For the center shock I'd go with the latest black spring set, that set has the very soft "red dot" springs in it and is the closest to the gold spring from the Miata Mini kit that most F1 racers try to get.

You can use a silver can if you choose.
It will definitely save you money, may help keep the car under control if not fully dialed but will of course require maintenance, most likely be slower and will also drop off in power a bit during the 10 minute races.
A basic 21.5 brushless will save you crap tons of aggravation in the long run without question.

For me that's taking it a bit too far. Way to scale for me Before long you will have to have $1000+ in tuning equipment just to race. Then you will have guys get pissed when they get beat by an old school tuner that has a pair of pliers and a screwdriver in his pit box.

drive it, feel it, tune it. That's the way it should be done. Only you can set up a car for your driving style. A computer can't do it for you.
