There is but it's dead from the neck up. I picked up a 112 and tried to get info but have drawn a blank. So far, the battle to get it up to speed has got me here: I've tossed the fibre side links and put in regular links (turnbuckles etc) then put in a pair of side springs. Red spring on the rear shock and 45s front springs. Still searching for damper oil wt, right now, I have 30k and its quite nice. Still picking up the inside rear wheel. Need to check weight of car, maybe I can add ballast on rear end. My F1 mentor drove the car, told me to slow down, wait til it's pointing in a straight line before gassing it. Kinda helps, just wish I could plant it more, then I will be dangerous. Otherwise, I'm going to have to get one of them VBC F1 pieces.....

jacko,


If your picking under braking its likely a result of the front wing biting into the carpet. If the problem is on entry decrease your brake strength, raise the front .5mm go back to a standard weight spring like a 50 or ae .020 and decrease the rear pod droop.

If the lift is occurring on throttle or coasting start by reducing you caster, then move the weight forward and to the centerline if not already there.

Is there much difference performance wise between the F104 Pro 2 and the TRF F1? Just wondering if I should sell my Pro 2 to upgrade to the TRF model.

Hi guys,

I tried both the Tamiya tires and the Ride ETS tires on carpet at my local track. Worked both good with the Ride ETS a bit better - but I'm missing steering on higher speeds (e.g. at the end of the straight... I have to lift the gas early or brake).

I now want to try the Pit's 571/572, but I don't know which inserts to use.
Can you give me a hint?
I want to use the Tamiya rubber wheels.

Thanks in advance!
Greetings from Germany!

Just use the inserts that are included with the tires. You can use the Tamiya rubber wheels but you have to modify them to get them to work with the Pit tires. If you use the Tamiya foam wheels they glue right on without any modifications.

Thank you - yeah, I saw the modifications shown in the ebay auction I found the tires. The pictures in that auction show tires w/o inserts, so I thought there will be none delivered with them. But now all is clear

Thank you much!

@Basil,
If you're speaking of the Tamiya TRF101, it's already out of production.

Tamiya has announced they are doing another production run on the TRF101. I haven't seen a time table when they will be available though.

How did you get it to work? TBH I'm disappointed in the quality of this thing. Looks like it was cut with a router with a severely worn out bit.

I had to buy some different countersunk washers. The ones I tried to use initially had the same O.D. as the holes in the brace, 7mm. I bought a pack of 3mm OFNA countersunk washers, they have an O.D. of 8.3mm, and they worked fine. Once I got the new washers it tightened down perfect.

One side of the carbon is a bit rough, but it's just a brace to save my wing. If I cared about it being pretty I would polish it. So far I'm really happy with it.

I'm having this issue as well with Ride tires on asphalt when accelerating after a turn. I added weight to the front and it didn't change anything, but i was at maximum caster at the front. I had added weight to the rear pod, i guess i'll remove it
