thanks :-)
when it comes to it, this cars handling is perfect! it can handle throttle everywhere (which is privilege of 4WD) but i have problems with "flip over" at low speed .... today i figured out that front spring suspension wasn't good.... and i have new tires, so i think about "round off the edge of the wheel" (i used translate.google to write this, so maybe i wrote it wrong).

P.S: Rear suspension is really hard I didn't notice that undertray touches the ground....
and this undertray is perfect because it defends the rear shaft (guys with Xray 2WD cars broke at least one per race... i do not O:-) )

F60 and the Mclaren pretty much it, unless you go with a Chevron body from DDrive

The exotek 104 doesn't fit with the one piece yeah racing motor mount.
Not with out sanding down the left rear link arm so it doesn't bind.

another thing: I have Tamyia F104GT in development and we have made (me and my father) our own dumper solution, but our solution is still too big to be used in F1 car :-)

P.S: i have pics of that, but i can't post link ...

Red crc side springs, 50wt oil, no pre load
Tamiya blue centre spring, 50wt oil, no pod droop
I then use yeah racing one piece alloy motor mount and steel axle all to add weight
At the rear of car!

Also don't have too much aggressive setup on front end!

Default Need support Mini Z - F1 class Re-starting at Kyosho America Track

Hey guys,

This Saturday we asked Kyosho to open the Mini Z F1 Class for their fall classic race to be held this coming Saturday 3rd and they have agreed. We have four cars confirm, but still need at least two to make the minimum six required.

If you have not experience running your Mini Z F1 at Kyosho this is a great chance to do so, plus you will be supporting the F1/ Mini Z scale efforts to be alive and racing again in southern California.

I support anything F1,we hope to meet you Saturday at Kyosho.

Cheers, Marcos

PS I been part of Mr. Lightfoot’s UF1 gang since the beginning (2009), for reasons outside our control Kyosho had previously schedule this race the same day as November’s 2nd round of the UF1 winter series. I will always promote staying away from the UF1 schedule or any other F1 race so we get more (including and not excluding) options for all F1 enthusiasts.

Sorry in advance for this unwanted situation.

Click for race info.

Thanks. Ill give those a try. What is the pound weight of the CRC side springs and the Tamiya blue center spring,I'm using AE side springs and center shocks setup the same as my other AE pan cars. Also, what about ride heights, front and rear. I heard that running the front high and the rear low helps a whole lot. Any ideas?

Pretty sure those are the tamiya spacers from there spacer kit they sell I want to say the 5.5 or 5mm But depending on your servo is going to depend on spacer length you may have to join two together to get a proper level turnbuckles.

Use any old spacers- 6mm worth of hinge pins spacers will work.

I used this threaded spacer: http://www.ebay.nl/itm/290569896247, 'any hinge pins spacer' won't work as you have no thread to mount the ball connector and the servo horn. Would be a nice option for Exotek to sell these threaded spacer in 6mm as I couldn't find one at the big hobbyshops.

The spacers shown in the pics have no thread! I'm not making this info up, indeed 2- 3mm hinge spacers will work. Push a long m3 screw through the servo horn hole, through the spacers and thread it into the Tamiya threaded balls...
