Someone suggested braking for the corners, but I never brake for corners with the GT car so want to get this F1 car to be the same.
I am using the stock center oil and side damper oil but I am using a silver tc3 center spring and up front .20 1/12 speedmerchant spring up front. I am also using the tamiya 84070 body set for the f103 type C. this give you more stable rade . I am using the stock tires on carpet. it really works well.

I am wondering if the rear wing has something to do with the rear end problems on F1 cars, cos most F1 cars have a similar problem, yet 200mm pan cars do not suffer from the problem.

Still looking at ways to put Pro10 wheels on the rear, as then I can run the Corally Silverstars which seemed to work on the pan cars that ran.
(pan cars that did not run them also had rear grip issues)
Hi all

I got my car yesterday and hope to give it a run on the weekend.

I am looking to make some new rear hubs to use the same tires as the Corally F1 uses, most of the guys here use Jaco tires so I want to do the same, are they the same mounting as the tires you are talking about ?

Regards
Gary

If you can get 1/12 donuts, those are the correct size as well.

Default spring set.

Going to order our F109's. just wondering.... The centre springs, i've read you can just buy the Tamiya touring spring set. Are they the standard length ones or the short spring set?

will these do:
http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-spr...63-p-4863.html

or these
http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-spr...3-p-23519.html

thanks
Alex

I'm using this set - the red one is the same as the kit spring
rc-spring-tamiya-onroad-turned-hard-53440-p-17486

I guess these are the same but Milky blue (with a couloured dot) instead of colour coded.

Yes the Jaco tyre/wheel fittings.
I tried to use the ones from my CRC, tape brings the axle up to size on the non-diff side, but I can't get a fitting on the diff side.
I've not given up yet.
One guy in Germany made a batch a year back, but has sold them all.
and MLP have a car coming out shortly http://www.mlpmotorsports.net/page1.aspx and it has fittings for both pro10 and F1 wheels but says nothing about axle size, but being American it will probably be imperial size.

If you are going to be at the track today I will have the rear springs for you and that should take away the push.
