Great! That lessens the number of parts I need to assemble the 109. Thanks.

Rear wings fit fine. Some F103 front wings are a direct fit...some need a hole drilled for the M4 screw. Not hard to do and work just fine.

Anyone disposing their 109's? I need a roller to be used as parts donor for an F1 project.

Had my f109 on my club's indoor carpet track for thee first time this past Sunday (10/7/12). All I have to say is bad fast!!
We run 3 5 minute heats & 7 minutes mains.
My results:
Heat #1: 2nd -- soft springs up front, 4000mah 2S LiPo, silver can motor, tire sauce on both rears & inside edges of each front
Heat #2: 2nd -- same settings except used a 5500mah 2S LiPo & tire sauce on rears only
Heat #3: 1st -- came from 2 laps down to win race by 2 laps over 2nd place, NO tire sauce, 4000mah LiPo
A-Main: 3rd place, No tire sauce, same settings, 5500mah LiPo

I used my brand new f103 spoked rims with Tamiya 3630 Fronts & Tamiya 3645 Rears.
72T spur & 20T pinion, and SXT 3.0 tire compound. Not bad results considering Saturday was the first time running it on carpet.

Does anyone here run TRG wings on their F109??
If so, how is the front body post mounted??
Pictures would be helpful. Thanks

@ Tracy B
All 3Racing F1-09, Tamiya F103 and Corally F1 cars at our track run TRG spoilers.
5016/5026 front
5017/5027 rear

I'll ask IJdod to post a picture regarding the front body post. We mount the body post on the front spoiler. There's a special indent where you can mount it.

Any luck with the pictures??
If possible, one with body one to see where hole is.
Also how front post is mounted on spoiler.

Thanks again.

Can a F1 car be raced on a surpace that is not perfectly smooth. our club race TC/GT and mini's but the track isn't perfectly smooth we have been doing a lot of work to smooth it out but it is a older surface with cracks and a dip that runs where a valley drain runs across one end of the track.
In the spring we will smooth these areas with some asphalt sheet mix and repair most of or cracks but even after these repairs the track will not be perfectly smooth.

yes it can. you just need a VERY different setup. I run mine without rear friction plates soft tires, soft inserts, and i use a longer rear shock (touring car ones) and soft spring. It gives you more rear suspension travel. And be careful with too much front grip. If the road has cracks too much front grip will make the car suddently veer. I like mine to purposely understeer so I don't get caught off guard. For the front I found out it's good to still use very soft springs so the car doesn't get jumpy all over the irregular surface, and just play with tire compounds. Also 1 degree toe out not much more, because it will accent on the overseer, but I'm using gt uprights witch have around 3mm offset compared to f103 ones (don't know if will make a difference, but offset uprights are supposed to make the car more stable)

And be warned no matter how hard you try, touring cars will still pass you like you are on reverse.

I'm looking to change the spring on my top mounted shock. I have a red spring on now, not sure what brand, was on from previous owner.
What kind of spring do I need??
Any recomendations for hardness (color)??
What colors are what in regards to hard/medium/soft??

Where can I find aluminum stand offs for the chassis plates to replace the plastic ones in the kit?

As far as I am aware no such thing exists... certainly 3Racing has nothing like that listed as an option for it

I have only one more RC thing on my bucket list and I will keep racing (and probably coming last) till its done.

I'll either have to find some standoffs from another vehicle that will fit, or I will have to order some from McMaster-Carr. Not a big deal, but I was hoping form some nicer shaped anodized versions, not the industrial hex standoffs like I would get from McMaster.


On another note, I am going to be buying my first LiPo batteries. I'll be running a silver can for a bit, but eventually switching to 21.5 BL. Any suggestions on what I should be looking for as far as MAH and C rating? More important, shorty 2S or full size 2S pack?

I run a 4000 MaH (cheapo brand LiPo) that I got when I bought the car, don't remember the C rating.
I also run a 5500 MaH 60C Reedy Hard Case LiPo.

Both are full sized 2S LiPo packs & run with a silver can motor. Never tried a shorty pack with my f109.

Be sure your charger is capable of charger LiPo batteries, if not you need a balancer.
