Tamiya item number 51346.
This is the complete set but you can buy also the trustbearing alone item number 53136.
Spares?? Tires, front suspension, steering knuckles and if you have a carbon axle, buy a steel for spare and weight.

Regards Roy

If you mean wide front end you need the f103 arms kingpins and turnbuckles along with the servo mounts

That i know but when using large tires you can't go as low as with the RM01 plates as you can put the smal plastic part above or below the axle height eggs

Ok, I have a stupid question. I'm trying to figure out what angle the steering turnbuckles are meant to be at "stock" in reference to the uprights. 90* parallel? I know that angling them, by moving the servo forwards, decreases ackermann. But, by design, are they meant to be parallel?

I'm asking since with my Xray servo saver, the furthest back I can move the servo still leaves the turnbuckles at a pretty aggressive angle (servo saver pretty close to front arms, vertical servo). I'm thinking of trimming some of the servo plates to be able to move the servo another 1/4" back, which would make the turnbuckles much more parallel (and thus perpendicular to the uprights). Thoughts?

We gear the 21.5's between 2.7 and 3.0 .
Since the 17.5 has more torque, I would suggest somewhere between 2.5 and 2.7 with moderate timing ( 25-30 degrees) If you start to go towards 3.0 you will just blow the tires off of it.

We run 13.5T and free timing but not dynamic timing.
our straight is 50meters total tracklength is 187meters

15 second laps with fast laps in the 14's

our gear ratio is set to be a minimum of 2,7.

I should ad that we use free tires so everbody runs foams

Hi guys!

I would like to present myself. My name is Emilio, Im from Madrid, Spain.

Formula 1 cars are a trend here in Spain, also in Madrid, my city. We are having around 8 to 10 races every year in different championships. I just bought a Tamiya F104 Pro Black Special after having two 3Racing(F109 and FGX).

IŽm so proud of the car, also of the quality for the price I paid. Its really strong, and much more faster then my old models. I made a 3 place on my first race a month ago.

If I have any question about the car I will ask you guys.

We have 3 circuits in Madrid with 4 tracks. We run with:

-Justock 21.5T
- Ride R1
-190mm max wide

Also IŽll so you the new Spanish brand that just appeared with there first model, a new F1, all carbon and steel parts. Looks great, we only saw prototypes, hope we can buy them at the end of June.

I cannot put the URL cause Im a new starter but if you search for the "MDRacing MDF14" on Google youŽll see it.

The 3 prototypes we saw are winning every single race they run.

Thats all! Sorry for my english guys, I need to improve it! I swear god I didnŽt use the Google Translator :P

Thank you all, bye!
