Those are 3Racing Wings

The rear wing is not true to scale as it sits up quite high above the airbox

I was only interested in the front wing. It would add a nice touch to another "hanger queen" if it fits well.

Thought I would share my F1 cars for this seasons racing. Exotek F1 ultra running 21.5 blinky and F104 V2 Pro running silver can. Hopefully nobody else paints their car grey. Had a few orange cars last season so departed from my normal paint scheme.

V2 seems to perform a lot better than the X1 I used last season. Actually think it can match the f1ultra on most tracks.

That's nothing. I was using 5 degrees on my X1 last season which was specific for a certain track which was low speed and 90/180 degree turns mostly. Lacked the turn in needed otherwise.

These are more a base setup to work on most tracks. Do most people run less normally? I like to have my front end fairly agressive so I can have the battery as far back as possible.

I do not think I have seen anyone run more then 1 degree of toe out. Those cars must be very twitchy on the straights.

You get a very unstable car on the straight and steering trow is less then when running lesser toe out

Maybe I'm just use to it but it seems easy to manage. The cars actually still understeer through corners. I had setup the f1ultra initially with 0 toe and I couldn't carry any speed through corners

Generally I run my cars like this:
Softest pitch spring I can get, Softest T bar (x1)/Softest roll springs
Pitch spring set so that the car very slightly sags at the pivot (for the link cars)
Centre t-bar screw 1mm below chassis. Blue rubber ring. (t-bar cars)
Same height front and rear
Medium front spring
2-4 degrees toe out.
1.5 degrees camber
Battery as far back as possible

Bar where I have a tangle I'm generally in the top 2 and end up with either 1st or 2nd fastest laptime.

Anything else that looks different compared to how others set their car up?

Actually would like to know how people have their cars setup when using less toe out. I had originally tested less toe out and it didn't work. Clearly am missing something I needed to change in addition to make it work.

i drove an F1 car today that had toe out and it certainly had good steering going into the corner but wouldn't really run straight down the straight, which certainly was weird to drive (and no it wasn't the trim that was out).

My car has 0 toe but I am interested to try up to 1 degree to get a bit more corner entry steering. We had a round of our club champs today and I managed to win, the final had 13 cars!!!!!!

Toe in either direction will help center up the steering by taking up the slop in the rod ends...so you want some. But typically you don't see more than1* of front toe out and as much as 2* of front toe in. I usually run .5* to 1* toe out in the front.

I just wanted to post some pictures of my Lotus T128. Decals are from F1 Paint Labs.

Also this F1 won the F1 Summer Series here in Atlanta at HotShot Rc Raceway.
