Default F109 for sale

F109 for sale- Complete car, race ready. It has a new servo (3004), 3200 smc lipo battery, a lrp tc speed control, an epic duo2 motor (21.5), car is new, raced one time. It has one set of foam tires, never been raced (brand new), three sets of front tires and wheels rubber (glued), one set of rear rubber (glued). I still have the box and directions for the car too. I would like to get $300 for it, or best offer.

Thanks,
Floyd Holton

Like what acid said.. I use 17.5 boosted and use under 1000mah for a 5 min run.. we have 8 min mains and its only ever used 1500 max..

I was running a 5000 but then went to the lightest battery I had a which was a 3700 3 racing battery and it made the car allot faster.. could not justify having the 5000 in there.. the 3700 weighs next to nothing..

Cheers

Even if so (my friends running F103GT with TC rubber tires on low grip asphalt did that), its better to put weights on rear pod.

I'm using KoPropo 2123 with lugs cut off. Definitely low profile servo is nicer fit but not necessary.

I use DesirePower 5000mAh and have also tested an unbranded chines lipo. Make sure the bullet connectors are out in the corners of the lipo. Otherwise the holes in the top deck have to be modified. I had that problem with the chinese lipo I bought.

Lenght and hight of the Desirepower is good. Width is also ok but I had to use some tape to make it wider.

any standard hard case pack will fit if it's under 25mm. if it is too low yo can always put some cushioning on top.

been using ZEN premounts for last two season and could not be happier.they are quite hard to get these days but you can always get them through

I use 25shore rear/35shore front combo and it works great. For high grip I would try 30r/35f (or even 38f) combo.

Surprisingly, kit tyres works very well. CA'd outher sides are recommended.

Anyone know what caster angle is achieved when you slide the mount all the way to the front?I can't read the #'s on the stock (plastic)parts.Also what is the stock setup(or the preferred) on this part. Any setup help is appreciated,as there seems to be very little avail on the web for this car.

Hey guys n gals...

I have just finished commissioning my F109.. The hardware is Novak Havoc 3S and a ballistic 17.5T. 26t pinion, 74t spur. The ball diff is silky smooth. Stuck to IP 3800 lipo, fits nice and lower weight. (and i had 2 left over from TC)

I put in just a little toe in for the moment, and set the front (rake i spose you would call it) to the middle, and the camber to almost zero.

I have noticed that one of the tiny side springs is binding and the plastic doesnt seem to sit inline. Is this a common occurence? Any suggestions.

Cant wait to get it down to the track..

Tyres.. what are the originals like? i have paragon so i would assume use that, same as pans.

Any extra suggestions for a long fast asphalt track?
