You might try more steering throw. At IIC the Tamiya guys were grinding the stoppers on the front lower arms to get more throw.
Also try;
Firmer rear top spring.
Tighter diff to force the inside wheel to break loose.
Less front droop.
Less front toe out.
More fr camber.
Space the rear wheels wider, front wheels narrower.
Thanks Mike i wil give these points a try

If the rules allowed it i would man , but it says Tamiya only parts and no other makes of chassis and the car is only allowed to a max of 180mm it is the "fun" class at ETS

Prevents the F60 nose from Flexing xD
Adds some Stability maybe for the buttom piece that it is bolted onto the chassis.

I believe its unreleased piece.

Prevent flex in the nose. If you hit the front hard enough you will either strip the thread holding the nose to the wing or bend/crack the front of the body. Would I imagine be more useful for bodies with a high nose.

Mike R - Wondering what those tasty looking new front arms weigh? Am trying to understand if there is any additional benefit on top of the adjustability and strength. Would the heavier arms actually help generate more front traction?

Cheers

On X1, are there any advantages(other then looks,maybe weight) using the motor spacer if alloy motor mount is used?

-Disadvantages?

Also, do you prefer standard bearing in diff or thrust type?

Only disadvantage to the spacer I can see is if you have a motor that has a short shaft for you to bout your pinion on like the silver can motor. Then you pinion can't mesh with your spur gear. I think most people are doing the thrust bearing over the standard bearing. At least thats what I am doing on my F1R.

What are the correct springs for the front end?

Also,looking for "soft" center shock spring!

Having hard time finding correct one's for F104Pro X1. Already ordered incorrect springs once, so I want to get next order correct!

for the guys that have the low profile servo in place, anything special to mount it? i vaguely remember seeing guys showing how they were mounted, but I can't remember where I saw it.....

i guess I should have said, mounting it horizontal instead of vertically like in the directions that's what i get for posting 1/2 asleep

Exotek servo mount works well for me and steering links as horizontal as possible - 5-6mm of shims to servosaver...
