I cut down my fiberglass axle and ground a flat on it. Works fine.

Hi, does anyone have any experience with rubber tires on carpet? What would be the best option to buy? Thanks for any help.

Fourth race in the Swedish Open F1 series last weekend in Vaxjo didn't bring any big surprises - my fourth consecutive win

But things are getting a lot tougher, for the first time I wasn't TQ. Local hero Silvano Insalaco was 0.01 sec faster with his F104 - Congratulations!!!

Unfortunately I didn't have time to try my new carbon chassis - hopefully there will be better time before next race in three weeks.

If you cut it from the diff side you won't need to grind a flat spot on it

It's to use a regular 64p spur. The material is POM, like delrin or whatever.

Oh ok thanks. Just that the pic looked like a ring and not a gear.

Yea its the little ring that goes into the Spur gear as the shaft is smaller the gear would flop about so it fills the gap between the axle and gear

Hey all
Tried to post some pic's of my chassis, but it wouldn't let me until i have made a certain amount of posts.
Mods so far, crc side spring mod, 104 diff/shaft also trying a crc front hub mod i have been working on.
Best result so far, was Q2nd and finished 2nd at the racing lines international(behind a F109), January 2010 only 4 days after purchasing the car.
It has done me well at club racing but recently our club has changed venues from outdoor ashfelt, to indoor dusty concrete.The guys with rubber tires are blitzing us guys with foams. If anyone has any setup advice for low traction surface, im all ears (caster, camber, pod droop, side springs etc...) Cant afford to go to rubbers just yet.

Thanks in advance

speaking of setup, do most people here just use gauges to set toe and camber or can you use 1/10 setup stations for F1, in particular F109?

Also how tight should you do up the ball diff, there doesn't appear to be any recommendation in the manual?
