Thought I would show off my modified Yokomo YRF.

This is my first F1 and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Great chassis with several different chassis configurations.

I am thinking about buying a set up station for my F110. I have some issues while setting caster and camber as this car has tons of tune options. I am ussing my Tc setup but it's very difficult to make it ok.
I have checked the hudy one for pan car, but I am not sure if it will fit Ok for the F110, anoyone has experience with it?

Thanks

the pancar station is not using metric for the ball bearing
there's brand who make special setup station for F1 (3racing for exemple) or you can use touring station with some additionnal bearings (see there : http://rcf1.fr/index.php/le-forum/mo...e-pour-f1#4711)

The fixed front end means the roll centre is constant, and lower than the moveable upper arm style. This means the handling is more consistent through the corner, with a non-TRF front end as it compresses through the corner the roll centre rises and changes the loading on the front tyres through the corner, so changing the chassis balance and giving different handling characteristics through the corner.

The handling of one front end works for some, and the other front end for others.

What Pit rears are the next harder compound from 572 for the rear?

on my hot track 572 get too stuck about 3min in and would like a little harder tire with less grip, sounds crazy I know

I tried the new hot weather pits 590 and they were even more stuck than the 572

The Hudy Pan Car Station will work. I used 5x8x2.5mm flanged bearings. They are a very tight fit. I used pliers to squeeze them into the holders. I have another set of holders for my 12 scale. Once the bearings are in you can't get them out. I used an extra wheel bearing as a shim.

I will try to make that with my Tc station, but the main problem that I have with the F110, is using the pivot ball to adjust camber as with my station I can't access well

Thanks madulla, maybe If I buy it I will make the same as you, i really like this option as i can introduce the 2mm hex through the station, if finally Y buy the station I will use my vise to introduce the bearings into the holders.

Cheers
