ive been reading thru this thread and ive learned a lot of ins and outs regarding the F1-09 .....

ive had the kit for about 3 months now ..... kit is built up and its fantastic out of the box stock ......'however i believe it has more to offer if properly set up

id like to ask help on simple 1 2 3 fixes on how to lessen spinning out ...... i believe driving the F1-09 takes a lot more discipline on the steering and throttle control to get thru the turns cleanly when used on the track .....

any set up tips on which to change? adjust? or avoid? ....


thanks in advance


oh i drive it on an asphalt track with lots of dust and where the weather is extremely hot ....

Try driving a 1/12 Getting 2wd cars like the F109 to handle good is 100% setup. What motor are you using? Try using a standard silver can. I can't wait to get mine on the track

the F1-09 out of the box seems planted on the ground ..... its worth is more than how much it selling for ...

I Have had one since January this year love it to bits and only 3 faults with it as far as i'm concerned

1. The rear holes on the chassis where the Link ars go to close to the edge

2. As above for the rear pod

3. No front ride height adjustment

So this is the Chasis. . . .

LOL I cant post a link to my WEB site so stick in the 3 W's (aka w w w.) at this point MMM

MMM trackside.co.uk/3Racing/chassis1.JPG

this is the broke chassis

MMM trackside.co.uk/3Racing/chassis5.JPG

MMM trackside.co.uk/3Racing/rear%20pod.JPG

MMM trackside.co.uk/3Racing/New%20chassis%20done.JPG

Then to cover it with the carbon sticky

MMM trackside.co.uk/3Racing/chassis%20done.jpg

then to adjust the front ride height I made 3 of these in 1mm 2mm & 3mmto under the front nose and there you go

Default F104 diff

Im thinking of using the Tamiya F104 diff/ driveshaft. Anyone know if it alters the rear wheelbase on the F109 and if so, how much? The F104 is a narrower car, right?

No, it will not influencing, the wheelbase of diff of f103 and f104 are the same size.
The only way to change wheelbase are just wheels

FYI I think you mean wheel track...wheel base is the length between front and rear wheels...wheel track is the width between tires.
