I then noticed at the end of the day my front left tire is about 2mm smaller in diameter compared to the right (55/57). It was my first time racing it so i'll keep an eye on the diameters next time in between runs.

I suspect that would be why it was inconsistent in left/right turns?

Anyways I'd still like to know how to un-tweak the chassis.

Thanks
Make sure to rotate tires (left and right) every now and then to get even tire wear.

1/12 scale servo? Maybe the JR. The Ko one is over 100 dollars. Way over priced. I use a Futaba 51 low profile. Works like a champ.

I ran mini lipo's in my F104 tonight. We run 21.5 with no boost speed controls. Rubber tires on an indoor ozite carpet track.

Before the first qualifier I added 1oz of weight to the rear of the car. Better than no weight but still fought the car for the entire 6 minutes. Rear end was very loose.

2nd qualifer I kept it as is and the car was terrible as the traction came up. Others were traction rolling. I thought I was driving on ice.

Added 1oz more in the rear before the mains. That made a huge difference. I could actually pull the trigger

If it's a 104 or F60 body from tamiya, there's no need. Third-party type bodies will need to be fitted before painting.

The only companies I know of that make bodies for the 104 are Chevron and ZEN racing. But they're the more modern body types 08' and 09'. I just used the 104 body, as it is closer to the jordan style.
