thanks guys. Got my 542 tires. Comes with some odd inserts, almost like a rubber/foam. When i put them on the wheels there is a ton of air. What do you guys recommend for the rear inserts/foams ?

thanks again.

Depending on the Pit tire, it'll either come with the rubbery foam you got, or with softer foam, by design. I was confused by this as well, but just use what they give you for that specific tire. The rubbery foam you got leaves the air gap you're seeing, but I was told that's by design as well. They're run just like that. I can confirm that they stick like glue despite the air space, as my car is super planted on carpet.

Glad to see some interest in the car. We had 3 prototypes at the race. Qualified 1,2,&4, along with a win and a second. The cars were finished the Thursday before iic. Frank's first time running it was at iic, Brian and I had just a few packs through it before the race. This car and the results are a testament to franks vision and design skills. Frank is working out some things for the production version, so stay tuned. in the mean time, expect the same quality and reasonable pricing as the rest of crc's product line.

Stock thin inserts for the win! Be sure to glue the insert ends together a little. No big glue globs.

Anyone got set up info on the TRG112 please.

I picked one up and all's good except I can't keep the inside rear wheel on the ground in turns. Nothing keeps it down. Done all weights up to 50k in the tubes. Got a gold spring and 35 wt in the shock. What can one do with them funny fibre glass links ?? Just about to toss them out and put regular links in their place and plant some side springs in there somehow.

Anyone ??

Use contact cement instead of CA and the joint stays flexier

At one point on the old car there were shorter links, possibly black fiberglass and thicker. We mounted them solid to the car... no o-rings or whatever.

Its been a while since I've been this excited about another F1 car. I am hoping that it will maintain compatibility with Tamiya bodies?

This may go without saying, but on second thought......
Am I correct in assuming that the new CRC car is going to use standard-sized F1 hexes?
