I see that the control tire uses the narrow (F10/F104) rear tires. Was that an issue for any of the "wide" cars like your F109 or the older F103s?

Greg,page back a few.
The ride rims are wider than the f104 rims. Sort of
a in-between of the 104 and 103 wheel.
I am keeping an eye on this thread too
Wish there was a U.S. importer of all of these parts..

Rules are here, in swedish..
http://pancarz.com/f1/index.php?opti...=12&id=740#741

"Tekniskt reglemente.
Samtliga på marknaden förekommande F1-chassien med dessa begränsningar;
Vikt: Min.1100 gram.
Motor: 17.5 BL eller 27 kolmotor
Elektronik: Fritt, reglage med dynamisk timinginställning är inte tillåten.
Battrier: 2s Lipo eller 6 cell NiMH.
Utväxling: Högst 60mm roll out."

comes to approx:
tecnical rules
All of the available F1 chassis with these limitations:
weight minimum: 1100gram
motor 17,5T brushless or 27turn brushed
electronics free, No dynamic timing allowed
batteries: 2 cell lipo or 6 cell nimh
maximum 60mmm rollout

further down one can see that the pancar style wheels are NOT allowed.

I'm sure inzane will present more details later...

It's hard to give any guidance when it comes to rubber setups. Temperature and surface conditions affects the grip level a lot more compared to running foams.



My final setup this race was very similar to what i use indoors - much because the grip was decent in the afternoon when the tarmac got warmer (almost 30C). In the morning you had to run much softer springs in the rear - like 3Racing gold or Associated black 3.75Lb side springs if you had the CRC mod. I changed the centre spring from Tamiya yellow to red (same as the kit spring). i used 20wt oil in both shocks (side 1 hole, center 3 holes).



I put 40 grams of 3Racing's nice carbonlook lead weights in the rear to calm things down a bit.



Front end;
Associated .20 springs and Tamiya 3.5 offset knuckles. I've changed the king pin to a longer one (Zen) in order to use ride height shims (3.5mm).
0 caster (caster plate full forward, 0 camber and 0 toe in.



The black thing with the Inzane eyes is just a foam stop for the lipos. The chassis needs to be able to flex - check that the Lipo is mounted with some play up&down and side&side.



In order to make the upper plate moving/flexing more freely I've put O-rings on the thumb screws as well.

We've had some problems with Ride wheel breakage.
You can use sanding bands from Dremel to make sleeves for the front wheels - I haven't had any problems after this.

Would 1/12 or 1/10 pan car wheels fit these cars?

Nope.

I think you need some guy with lathe machine and do some allu option parts if you need pan car tires.

Or made custom rear pod for asso 10R5 axle from ae parts and some magics with front axle for pan car tire (another dimm of bearings).

Front king pin is 3mm and pan car (like ae or crc or whatever) is ~3.13mm so maybe with some work you can put there ae steering block with ae axle for tire.

Regards!
