I must admit i havent done a lot of driving with the f1 for quite a while now due to no one running it down here in Dunnas.
I have the softest foams team powers premounts and the hard fronts and seem about the same as other guys are running but just run them out of the packet with no trimming down.
I just cant seem to keep it from spinning out on the odd occasion with same amount of throttle sometimes its fine and others it spins out.
I do have it set as soft as i can and maybe it needs some more sorting as just tend to drive it and feel i can keep up with the others but just cant push it as hard as they can as it will spin out if i try to push.
Post a clear overhead photo of your car. Guys might be able to glean some suggestions for you. With F1 you can't just buy handling- it's all in the little details.

Default TRG KIT 114 W

Hi, who use the TRG KIT 114w for F103?

Is it interesting to install this kit on a basic F103 ?

F103 is the best F1 chassis for me in 200mm, is this kit upgrade really the performance of this chassis?

Thanks.

So for those of us who don't speak french...How do they compare grip wise to the Pit Shimizu tires?

the video is in english or parts in french have subtitles
the result is a lack of grip in the rear wich gives light oversteer in asphalt. with carpet the result is worse. almost unusable

I have run the tires quite a bit on asphalt looking for other options in tires... with the right foam they're alright. I used the pit front-soft insert and the stock pit rear foam. I would not recommend getting them pre-mounted as the foam is not correct. When i mounted them up with better foam and depending on the track and temp of the surface, I was typically 1-2 tenths slower than my kit front/pit 72 combo.

Does this body have the space needed for the suspension for a 3Racing FGX?

I'm afraid. The FGX is a nice car but no rules allows it, so is less than popular here...
You can use the Phi-Gamma on any F104 like car
