The front CVD that goes on the 415-416 will fit on the FF03?

Thanks

Hey guys im trying to set up my FF-03 for a race tomorrow and it seems under a somewhat hard turn after cutting off the accelerator the back end wants to swing around and i basically loose my control of the car for a sec. Is it possible to fix this with a stiffer sway bar? (using blue atm) or compressing my shocks? or go the other way with it?

Straighten the rear shocks up 1st. That should help.

Initially I found running a softer tyre on the rear seemed to calm it down some, and then (contrary to the advice above I know) I layed down the shocks when going back to running the same tyres as up front and now it's pretty planted.

I guess you could also limit the amount of rear droop, that would limit the amount of weight going forward and keep some of the weight on the rear and save some of that precious grip.

Someone also told me that when turning like that, always try to keep some throttle on (half or part throttle) rather than neutral. I guess it's up to personal preference with that one.

Good Luck with your race.

is there a day and night's difference in handling between the carbon composite tub vs the kit's plastic tub chassis? is the carbon tub chassis a must-have or nice-to-have part, running on a asphalt track surface...

I'm kinda wondering the same, just got done ordering my knuckles, and new front drive shafts and crap. I want to lighten the car up a bit and make it more stiff.

I asked this before and no one responded so I assume no one has tried it!

One of our fellow drivers here tried it and reported an improvement in traction.

I also noticed that the shops are not moving stock on this part so can't be a concern for most drivers.


Anyone tried using the carbon steering link upgrade from Tamiya?
Is it worth it?

I'm using the Tamiya carbon steering link kit and found that it greatly reduced the slop that the stock components have. It's nice and light and works great.

It's a not day and night difference and to be quite honest, I did not notice anything when I installed all of the carbon reinforced parts on my car. Maybe it felt a little more precise???

I just installed the lightweight dog bones and axles, spur gear, totally noticed better turning response and power output, next is carbon tray. Oh I have the Lightweight aluminum steering link kit, it has some slop and it's annoying.

If anyone wants part numbers that work with the stock diff I can msg them.

Hello all. Has anyone run their FF03 Pro with a boosted 17.5 on asphalt with decent results? If so can you shoot me a PM with the setup you used I am trying to find a starting point to work off of. Thanks in advance for any assistance you guys can offer.
