Default F1-09 Carbonated ... a first glance



Very nice looking chassis!
30 grams lighter and stiffer lengthwise, side to side flex about the same as the kit chassis (maybe a tad softer) ... PERFECT!

On the subject of tyres, I'm looking for some rubber for my F109 for general outdoor use - any suggestions? Pit Shimizu seem to be substantially cheaper than HPI Bridgestones and a few other brands. I'll likely get them from HK.
Check with rcmart.com. Lot's 'o rubber tires to pick from. OOPS! never mind, you already have.

Guys, I never got a chance to run my F109, but I decided to trade it for a FT RC10 T4 because my local track switched to offroad

I'm a newb to direct drive cars, so presume absolute ignorance...

I just started building my F109, with out-tuned diff and alloy caster mount from the start. The out-tuned diff has me confused - the axles appears to be nowhere near long enough to fit the thrust bearing assembly, spacers, disk spring etc.

On inspection of the F104 manual, it appears to have no thrust bearing at all. What's going on?

P.S. on reflection, the whole point of the out-tuned diff is to avoid messing with the diff when changing wheels. I presume I just bolt on the wheel with a locknut and job's a good 'un?

Quick checkpoint for you. F109 use F103 rear axle, but in order to use the out-tuned diff on the f109, you need to get the f104 axle which is shorter.

Not a problem - just means I have to wait for more parts! Not an expensive part, but available in fibreglass, aluminium and carbon - I presume carbon is best? What are the dimensions of the F104 axle, it doesn't look hard to make one?

If your running the out-tuned diff you will need the F104 axle as well
I run/ran on my F109 and for me was a lot better than resetting the diff tension every time I changed the rear wheels.....

For some unknown reason the centre shaft that fits inside the alloy housing is now not running true and I've some how managed to split the rear axle I must have taken a knock and not noticed

The one I bought was a fibreglass one which has now split (see my prev reply)

I've heard people cutting the F109 axle down to the same length as the F104 axle....if I remember and get a lil spare time I'll measure the F104 axle I have for you
