Hi, total novice here to the F109.

I would liek to know how you're supposed to stop the side to side roll of the car? Is the only way to do this by changing oils/piston holes on the rolling dampner?

Cheers for any help and info.

Stiffer side springs - either the f109-06 option spring set from 3Racing or the CRC-mod.

Cool, thanks for that InZane.

My next question. I took the f109 and the F104 out for a bit of a spin today. Running on ashphalt in the afternoon so a little warm. I was running foams then thought i'd see how the rubber tyres would go.

When i went to take the wheels off, i got stuck on the back right wheel. The diff spacer came out, so did both the spring washers. However, the thrust plates and thrust bearing will not come out at all. I didn't have a crash or anything on my last run, no problems at all, there does not appear to be any damage on the diff shaft/wheel hub.

I have tried taking it out with small pliers, tried spray ice on the shaft to get the shaft to shrink, tried a little heat on the thrust washer with a soldering iron to get it to expand. Nothing has helped, at all.

Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated !!!

Cheers

Try loosening the set screw on the axle that holds the diff to the axle, and take it off the axle. You may be able to tap the diff out of the wheel that way, using an open vise or something to allow the diff to drop out of the wheel.

Thanks for that. I did exactly that. It seems the thrust washers were a little too tight for the diff shaft. I've sanded the shaft down a touch with wet and dry paper and now the washers are a better fit. Lets hope it helps. If not, i'll just get an F104 diff because i like that method better than this 3 racing one.

Cheers for the help.

hey just bought a f109. can I know what neccessary mods are done to these. also are all tamiya f103 and 104 parts interchangable with the f109? I'm just looking to have abit of fun with it, also the side-to-side movement seems to be abit too much, but will try it out for my first run and see what happens.

also what pinion would i run with a 13t ezrun brushless motor? atm I have 20t tamiya pinions from a tt01, will these do? thanks in advance for help.

3racing F109

3racing F109

Most everything from the 103 cars fit the 104 (front ends, wing, steering arms, axle, diff, shock, spring, f103 tires/wheels, etc etc)

The Tamiya pinions from a TT01 (usually 0.6 or "AV" pitch) won't be a viable option. Grab some 64p pinions from your favourite supplier

Default one more f1-09 on track..

Hey guys! Finally I assembled my new F1-09.
I can not send the pictures now because I'm new in this Forum.
I only need to change the castor mount for an aluminum hop-up only to be ready to race.
The plastic one, that comes with the kit is not good.
I decided to buy this car after to read the comments in this thread.
We are trying to create a F-1 championship in our club in Brazil.

Anyone run a 109 on rubbers /asphalt yet? If so what changes, and what tire?
Will be running silvercan outdoors on asphalt and need advise as to which tires work better.The track is leaning towards rubber--as most 104's come with rubber tires,and the store sold a bunch of f-60 104's.
I hope I don't get stuck running 104 tires/rims --that would _-_-_-_

Hi! F-104 rubber tire wheel are suitable. Regarding tires, you have two options.
Tamiya F-104 (F-60) tires or HPI F-Ten Bridgestone tires. In this case I like medium in the front and soft for rear. You can find in this thread, at page 47 some pictures of one F1-09 with Ferrari F-60 body, wheels and tires.

I thought the 109 had the same offset wheels as the 103.
What do you guys do about the narrow 104 rims?
The rear to front width would be all messed up.
