What final drive should I aim for with a stock silver can and a 98t spur. I just bought the f1-09 and I am almost ready to go.

Very nice BP. You are the master detailer for sure!

Now this is interesting... Google translation: "Formula Nippon was exhibited in the Yokomo prototype FN09. 2010 year says it aims to launch"

Unhappy Help

Has anybody heard of a mixture of coppertone and some other ingrediant used to soak f103 foams in for 24 hrs then let dry. If so could someone let me in on this track secret?

That's old school traction sauce! I've use Coppertone with other traction additives such as Thunder Cars and Paragon, usually for parking lot racing. Haven't raced outdoors in years so I couldn't comment of its current use. Never heard of soaking and letting dry, rather I've applied it like any other traction sauce.

The secret sauce?... OMG it's WD-40!

Spray on, cover with sunblock (some people prefer 30SPF some 50SPF). I do it rigth on the track. The grip gets better if you apply the ingredients on every run.

This is for asphalt, not good for carpet. For carpet use Jack the Gripper

There no more a secret.

Cheers!
