Delta and Trinity used that front end setup for years. You could probably make that yourself pretty easily. As Jamie pointed out, some guys don't like the way you have to readjust everything when you make changes.

Are you referring to the reactive caster system? If yes, the setup is fairly simple but it looks different than the picture shown in previous post.

Default Tamiya rubber tires - to glue or not to glue

Hi, I understand that we can use different inserts to adjust tire traction so we should not glue the rubber tires to the rim but my rear rubber tires keep coming off the rims when I play. Anybody has any suggestions or should I just glue the tires to the rim ? How can change the inserts then ?

If you're referring to the PS-48 which is the chrome silver, then yes we do! But yes, we do have to ship it ground.

You're more worried about tire inserts then keeping the tires on the rims? It's best just to glue the tires. If you don't like the inserts, rip out the tires and clean up the rims. Then start all over again.

will need to glue your rubber tires or you will spend more time off the track then on it.

you best bet is to speak to people at your track, see what works, then build up a supply. You can go to the hassle of unglueing the tires if you must, but you will be better placed to buy new one's as required.

never nice to have to keep buying tires, but the old ones are good for practice and mucking around.

have a read of the rubber tyre reviews done for the F104, they give you a good starting point, as well as robk blog....both are really handy source of tire info.

Take it from me read the info and ask locals what works. i had a guy sell me a set of tires to only find out he glued the rear tires on the front wheel. 16bucks and about 24 hours later i had them off wheels. woulda been cheaper to order new.

Default Foam Tires & Motor Choice For Tamiya F104W

Hi Guys

I have a Tamiya F104W (Wolf WR1).

I have a bit of a dilemma with foam tire choices. Previously I purchased some F103 foam tires. The rear foam tires have worn out very quickly. The track I run on has a rough grit.

I believe the F104 Pro wheels will fit my model as they both use a 14mm HEX.

I have been searching through RCMART for new foam tires. It appears that the only brand that has both front and rears available is Tamiya. Can someone advise if the Tamiya foam tires are a good choice?

I donít mind going for another brand if anyone has a better suggestion.

Also is the Hobbywing XERUN 17.5T (Sensored) motor a good choice for F1?

Regards

Nick
