I am new to the F1 and have been reading this thread for insights. I noticed a suggestion to use the forward hole for mounting the rear links. I tried this on the weekend but one side keeps letting go.
I did pull them appart completely to ensure I had an even amount of insertion at both ends of the rods.
I hve run the F109 a few times and have had difficulty keeping the tail under control. I have picked up some stiffer side springs and will try them next run.
I also had the unusual circumstance of the centre rolling damper coming undone during a run. Silicone is NOT good for traction.
I used to have the same problem. my rear could not keep a straight path out of the corner when i just setup the car. The changes i made that slowly made my car was.
1. Stiffer Side Springs on the Rear
2. Toe Out 1 Degree
3. Switch to 2 Hole Roling Damper and Main Damper, Change oil to 50wt
4. Change to Stiffer Front Springs
and so far its handing a lot better than the beginning
note, if you are running on asphalt track be sure to use rubber tires, you get a lot more grip.
Funny, i also found that my rolling damper just jumped out during a pratice session. might be because of a little bump on the apex.
