Have you tried using the 93T spur??
Thanks mate. Yeh it's good fun once you get it dialed in. Running the shock without a spring is a bit extreme but it works brilliantly! No I haven't tried the 93T yet but I will when I rebuild the diff.

Default thanks

hey guys
thanks for the set up sheet Vinny, can't wait to give it a crack. I buy my stickers from http://d-drivesportsenglish.com/ usually takes about 7 to 10 days to Australia, just waiting on the 09 McLaren, 09 Red Bull and another Buzz Hornet set, post is a bit high, but the quality is excellent. I'm also waiting on some Zen 25 rears as well, which i will use with Vinny's set up,let you all know how it goes. thanks and keep it up.
Pete

No worries prime. The setup needs some more work but it's a good starting point. The beauty of it is, you just have to take the shock spring off! Let us know how you go with the Zen tyres too.

I used the same brand of decals. Unfortunately I had a few flake off on me. You can see that on the Shell logo in the second pic. It tends to happens when you try to stretch them on tight curves and when they get creased (like on the helmet). So just watch out for that.

Yes they are a lot stiffer than the ones in the kit - and slightly shorter as well, that's why I had to put an extra 1mm spacer between the front arms.
AE springs comes from 0.014 (very soft) up to 0.024 (hardest) in 0.002 increments. Perfect fit if you ad the washer. I had them in my 1:12 spare part box.

Thanks Inzane, I'll look into them. I have the Tamiya springs also so I'll give those a try first.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the setup tips. What do you mean by the offset upright? I dont understand that part. Maybe a picture will help?

The item is F1 3.5mm Offset Upright Item #53259.

The spindle is offset backwards by 3.5mm from the kingpin. Its used to numb the steering. If you think your car is a handful. This might be useful.

Dang Veecee, where you get the inside scoop with that? be curious to see what the text translates too.

If it looks just like the artists rendition, it will be top notch... cant wait to get one to add as my ferrari car.

Need more info on the sport version, what it has etc and more info on those rubber slick tires!

I came across them while searching for pics of the 416X. These are all scans from Japanese mags and look like CAD images. It looks like the non-pro version will have a plastic diff, FRP chassis, steel driveshaft and probably friction shocks as well (these were on the parts tree in the Pro version).

Good info. Looks like there will be a 1.5mm FRP plate, probably the top plate?

Wonder what the price will be....

Wow, thanks very much for the scan!!

I could read/understand just a little bit of the japanese text, it looks like tamiya will have a new PS color specifically for the F60 as well! Sweet indeed!
